    Surface Pro 4 i7 gaming performance

    It's hard to say for sure, but I think it's lower than it used to be, and balanced is about where it was, but I'm not 100% sure. Also, I don't THINK it's thermal controls, since the way the SP4 controls that is by modifying the TDP, which shows up in Intel Extreme Tuning as power limiting, and...

    Surface Pro 4 i7 gaming performance

    A little follow-up: I have found some situations in WoW where balanced is also a slight boost to fps over high performance. Based on intel extreme tuning utility's monitor, it seems like in balanced the core frequency is slightly lower, but in high performance i am hitting the current limit a...

    Surface Pro 4 i7 gaming performance

    So when I first bought my sp4 back early this year, I optimized it for gaming with a fan pointed at the heat sensor, cs disabled, high performance power plan, intel graphics drivers, and a slight undervoltage (-110mv worked best for me). Back then, there was a definite difference in games...

    SP4 i7 PCSX2

    Have any SP4 i7 owners tried PCSX2 out? With all the talk of throttling under heavy CPU load, I'm wondering if a CPU heavy ROM like Dragon Quest VIII would be playable for more than 20 seconds. On my SP1, I can just barely get FFXII playable with a little slowdown, but even native, DQ8 is just...

    Surface Pro 4 i7-6650U power throttling issue?

    This does not bode at all well for emulation. I just ordered an SP4 i7, with much hope it would be able to handle PCSX2 better than my current SP1. Hearing all this, I wonder if I made a bad decision.

    emulation issues on surface pro

    Also, because it could be helpful information, I did try it with a wired XBox controller, and got the same slowdown. The rumblepad 2 is pretty old at this point, so I wanted to rule out that being the cause.

    emulation issues on surface pro

    The only SNES emulator I saw was SNES8x. I'm not on my surface right now, so I can't check, but I'd love to hear any others you would recommend. Like I said before, I did try SNES8x from the windows store, but it runs in 8:7 by default, and not 4:3 aspect ratio. Unlike SNES9x, which it's...

    emulation issues on surface pro

    I did, I guess I forgot to mention that. SNES9x can be run in either Vista or Windows 7 compatibility mode, and ZSNES can be run in XP compatibility mode. I tried pretty much every option in both programs, with no effect.

    emulation issues on surface pro

    I picked up a Surface Pro about a week ago, and have run into a frustrating issue when trying to use SNES emulators, which I am hoping other people have seen as well and maybe have overcome. When using SNES9x or ZSNES (or any others I've been able to find) from the desktop, games have minor...
