From Windows Central:
Regarding actual performance, the Surface Go's single-core score (2,078) was essentially double that of the Surface 3's Atom processor (1,078) on Geekbench, with multi-core falling at a respectable 3,934. (up some from the Surface 3's multicore score)

For graphics, the Surface Go's Intel HD 615 (16,490) also doubled the Surface 3's Intel HD graphics (8,055) on Geekbench.

Running at 100 percent CPU usage for 20 minutes straight in a 70-degree F (21C) room the Surface Go has no thermal or power-limit throttling at all. It ran consistently at 1.6GHz with no drops in speed the entire time.


Who has a 64GB model that can run Crystal Disk Mark? I believe it's in the Store.

It's been done.


Here's my Surface 3 to compare it to.


The eMMC in the Go is much faster than my S3's drive.
Thanks for the links. I have read them all and they have many positive things to say. Very pleased with what I am reading.
