    RX470 on a Surface pro 3?

    Hi, For using a external GPU in a Box as Graphics Accelerator you need a Thunderbolt 2.0 or 3.0 Port. The Surface Pro 3 does NOT have such a port. We do have a MiniDisplayPort, but thats for Video Out only. AFAIK it's impossible to use an external GPU with the Surface 3 Pro.

But well yeah, i don't really use it that often, and i rarely use the pen ^^ I was shocked why my pen wouldn't work. I always tought the pen itself was passive. But well... seeing the...

    Ubuntu 16.04/10 easy installation?

    or you can use microsofts Hyper V. which allows for compressed vhd's. regarding performace, you can get about 95-99% of a real installation. no gpgpu stuff but we dont have that on the ULV chips either way ^^

    Disabled connected standby, now sleep no longer an option.

    Originally it was 4hours before CS was over and Hibernation started, or not? AFAIK only with Windows 10 we got the poweroption to choose our own time. I have mine on 60Minutes. If I don't use it again after 60 minutes I don't need CS anyway.
