◆ 1: Measure the processing power of CPU and GPU with 'Geekbench 5'
The system information etc. acquired when ' Geekbench 5 ' is started are like this. The OS is Windows 11 Home (64bit), and the installed memory is 32GB (DDR5 SDRAM). The processor is Intel's 12th generation Core processor, Core i7-1255U (2.6 GHz).
The result of the CPU benchmark is that the single core score is ``1199'' (encryption: 3003 / integer arithmetic: 1044 / floating point arithmetic: 1234), the multicore score is ``6676'' (encryption: 6607 / integer arithmetic: 6548 / floating Decimal point operation: 6965). The AMD Ryzen 7 3780U (2.0HGz)-equipped Surface laptop 4, which will be released in the spring of 2021, has a score of 561 for single core and 4096 for multi-core, which is significantly higher.
The benchmark result of GPU (Intel Iris Xe graphics) is '17761' in OpenCL.

◆ 3: Measure performance with 'PassMark PerformanceTest' and compare with Surface Laptop 4
I also tried running ' PassMark PerformanceTest ' which benchmarks with 5 items: CPU, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, memory, and disk.
The overall score is '3428'. This ranks in the top 43% of the scores compiled by PassMark PerformanceTest. However, the world average is 4335, so it is slightly below the average.
Comparing the score with Surface Laptop 4 (top), it looks like this. The score of Surface Laptop 4 is '4712', surpassing Surface Laptop 5.
Surface Laptop 4 also wins the CPU score.
2D graphics are almost double score for Surface Laptop 4.
However, 3D graphics are reversed by Surface Laptop 5.
Surface Laptop 5 also wins memory.
As for the disk, Surface Laptop 5 made a big difference to 4. The total score difference seems to be mainly due to the CPU performance.
