Sifting through some old software and found this old single-threaded benchmark utility. Yes it is old and not an absolute measure by any means, but as a quick relative test of single thread performance, I decided to test it in my Surface Pro models.

FWIW some software does indeed use only 1 thread.

Here are my results:
Surface Pro i5 128GB 407
Surface Pro 2 i5 256GB 451
Surface Pro 3 i7 256GB 572

By contrast:
Lenovo Thinkpad W520 i7-2960XM 562
