Anyone experiencing any performance issues with their Surface? I am having a couple but cant figure out if they are the games or the system. Most everything runs fast and fluid except for 2 games so far:
Both of these games run at low frame rates on my Surface. Especially Hydro Thunder. If I configure the options in Hydro Thunder to low textures the game runs fine but I think the Tegra 3 should run this game T default settings without any issue. My 5 year old Dell m1530 laptop runs both games flawlessly with Windows 8 Pro installed.
Anyone seeing anything like this? I even tried having no programs running in the background. Nothing seems to help.

The Surface did get slow when I had a bunch of apps open in the background. After I figured out how to close them, by dragging from the top of the screen to the bottom, things got better. Pinball FX2 would run really sluggish in portrait mode, after I closed some apps it got a lot better, but sometimes it still doesn't feel as responsive as it should be.
I'm sure there are going to be some performance tweaks for RT. I thought about disabling some live tiles... but it's a bit of a let down for a new device full of Xbox branding.
