Just upgraded to the surface book performance base yesterday and just wanting to know what games you guy play on it and graphics settings please
This link is for the OP.
I don't think that is the same one. That's an i5 with the 940m. Performance Base model should be i7 with the 965M which are, apparently, night and day different performance.
Oh whoops! I thought there were only two GPUs (integrated and the Nvidia) available for the Surface Book.
It will still use the NVidia card if you want it to. You can make it use either card anytime you want.Hi Guys,
I have a question regarding gaming on the surface book while connected to an external monitor.
If the lid is closed, will the application that was meant to use the nvidia graphics still uses it or does it use the intel one?
I'm asking because I've noticed when playing it with the lid closed. I get good amount of frame rates for a few minutes and then it drops.
ok but is there any reason why the frame rates would just drop very low all of a sudden.
For example when playing Counterstrike Global Offensive with the surface book lid closed and connected to external monitor. In the beginning I will get for example over 100 fps then after a few minutes it will drop to like 30-40 fps. It's as if it somehow switched to the intel graphics.
It's either that or it's due to excessive heat I'm not too sure.
Playing with the lid open however gives no issues.
