    I play rayman from the store, that game looks incredible on the screen. Also you can EVE online on low settings, at least well enough to update your skills and do a little traveling.

    It's not an iX series processor, if you're running big games on it, it's gonna get hot and push it to the extreme limits.

    It happens to your laptop too and you tower PC, and your phone. Something so thin will get hot.

    I guarantee other Atom tablets have this problem. You are pushing the CPU and GPU of the Atom chip to practically max playing some of these games. Since these tablets are passively cooled (no fans) they will get very warm very quickly. NBA2k14 and Asphalt 8 may not seem very intense to you, but this is a low end chip with no fans. This is a normal result. Some other games may not get it too warm (I've heard that Valve's Source engine games run okay) and casual or 2D games should be fine.

    EDIT: As for damage, check the BIOS to see if there is a setting for forcibly shutting down if the CPU hits a certain temperature. This level may still be uncomfortable or hot to the touch, so be careful if it ever does overheat too much.

    I have actually noticed this too. I was playing Hearthstone for a while on the tablet, which was totally rad, but there were a few times I was nervous I was heating the thing up too much. I eventually took it out of the case when I would play to make sure I was giving it enough circulation, and I really didn't ever play longer than an hour.

    Yeah, the atom chip heats up. What's nice is since it's something you hold on to, you can keep tabs on the heat pretty easy.

    ​There are a couple things that could work better, but it's really the best game I've played on the DV8P
