    If you have spent any time with a Microsoft Surface tablet, you probably noticed that its UI isn't quite as snappy as you are used to with Android, iOS or even other Windows products. It doesn't feel slow per se, it just has a slightly sluggish quality, especially when multi-tasking. Apparently, there is a reason for this. NVIDIA made it known that the problem is not the hardware on the device. The problem is that Windows 8 RT is not yet fully optimized for the Tegra 3 4+1 Core setup. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    It's good to know that things should improve greatly with a future update, but it's too bad MS couldn't have worked this out ahead of time. Overall, the user experience on the Surface is great, and this is really not that big of a deal.

    I noticed a difference in performance with the first Surface update especially when app switching, there was less stuttering. The experience will just get better as more updates come, but i'm not having any noticeable issues.

    Beginning to wonder if they will ever optimize Tegra 3 Quad-Core Chips, its been a long time now. I would love having the Surface RT, with full Tegra 3 support. But maybe they have dropped Tegra 3 support, to work on Tegra 4 support instead as they most likely will release a New Surface later this year.

    Maybe, aside from the critical security updates related to IE10 scheduled for April 09, there will be a firmware update or two. But of one thing I am sure, by the time Blue comes around, the Surface RT would be optimized - its an imperative for both the Surface and for the WinRT platform.

    My RT ran Judge Dredd vs Zombies VERY smoothly. Does anything else even matter?
