Although I love my surface pro, there is one major flaw, The Heat. After downloading some games (battlefield 2, DayZ, Tribes Ascend, Minecraft, etc.) I found that they run beautifully with some on high settings. Unfortunately after some use I noticed a cycle of silky smooth gameplay to very choppy gameplay at <25 fps. After a while I downloaded SpeedFan and graphed my core temps. I found out that the CPU halves its power when It reaches 80 degrees C. I also saw that during games the cpu temperature was fluctuating between 60-80 degrees. That seems extremely high and I was just wondering if I had a defective unit. This is extremely frusterating because this maching has the potential to be a very decent gaming rig minus this one flaw.
