    I have my Surface 3 with 128gb.

    Have used the software "PerformanceTest 9" for test? The results are poor performance, please look at attachments.

    True or wrong?

    Thank you in advance......

    Welcome to the forum w91803. Looks about right to me. The S3 is not the most powerful machine in the world to start with, and on top of that, it is running a full blown desktop OS.

    What is poor performance though? Comparing against the rest of the pc world doesn't mean that the performance is poor, juts relatively poor. The S3 still works just great for the jobs it was designed to do.

    The S3 you are benchmarking are using a Atom X7 with 4GB RAM and a 132 eMMC, designed for efficiency and not power. This is a companion device for browsing, Office Productivity, note taking and reading, etc.

    This isn't a gaming rig (outside lite casual gaming) or a 3D powerhouse.

    What is your use case?
