OK, please bare with me as I'm new on here and not used a windows PC for some time (I went to Mac OS X, iPads and iPhones) but have now seen the light! I'm loving the Surface Pro 2 but I have a question with regards to the processor and how it behaves. I have it as standard with the power plugged in to use min 5% processor power / max 100%. I play Minecraft a lot and noticed I was getting poor FPS 30FPS whilst playing it, I opened up task manager and noticed the CPU usage was at about 1ghz. Subsequently I changed the min processor state to 100% / max 100% and the CPU indicated in task manager 2.4ghz. I ran Minecraft again and it ran perfectly and noticeably faster at a steady 60fps on high settings. So my questions: 1. Why does the CPU not speed up to 2.4ghz normally if the program is obviously demanding and getting poor FPS, especially as I set it to max 100%, does the software have to specifically request the turbo boost or is it automatic. 2. Does it do any harm (apart from getting hot) ;eaving it at 100%? Can someone with a lot more knowledge please explain this or even how the min/max processor states work as well as how the turbo boost works. I appreciate all your advice, Many thanks.
