    maybe they will make it out of solid metal and the whole chasis will be a giant heat sink

    x1 is an octacore i read two artivles and there are people speculating different reasons why it is listed as only a quad core

    the shield console seems to running GC dolphin at near full speed and there is a new graphics API on the way for marshmallow or the next update after marshmallow so maybe the dolphin developers can get it to full speed in the next year

    If you want a tablet with power, you're better off getting the recently released Transformer T100HA. 4GB RAM is something really needed these days.

    it's 10 inches , and plus it is running windows 10
    the shield is 8 inch and it is running android with 3 gigs of ram
    win 10 probably takes up 3 of those 4 gigs
    seriously at least one, android is much leaner it probably equals to the same

    running win 8.1 on an i7 haswell ultramobile ultrabook and runs like shit nothing open but
    chrome with like 5 tabs and 60% of my 8 gigs or ram is used
    windows is shit it is a resource hog

    Yes, it is a ten inch tablet and it is running Windows 10. That gives it access to the complete Steam library and all the accessories and software Windows provides.
    Android is not a benefit, it is a weakness in terms of gaming.

    windows is shit it is a resource hog
    if it try to run even project 64 on this thing it gets to 130 degrees
    windows is shit it does not belong on mobile devised ultrabooks are crap and cant game for shit
    and a tablet is even shittier and that thing is running and even more bloated OS and an even shittier processor than my i7
    it would probably catch fire trying to run a SNES emu

    the shield is designed for gaming, that i just shitty generic win tablet running an OS that should never be on a mobile in the 1st place
    i haven't used win 10 yet but that can keep it after the turd that was win 8 i am steering far clear of that mess
    win 8.1 ultramobiles cant;t run full x86 programs worth a shit, it only runs apps and still not that great and there are only what like 5 apps in windows app store?

    you can't even game that well on a full size windows laptop let alone an ultra mobile let alone a tablet
    intel atom is pure garbage ,intel i7 4500u is pure garbage and atom is like 50 steps below that , no thanks

    and gabe newell is working with android now to implement a new gaming API for android in the next release

    All right... so Mr. WheatMod, you've proven that you can't actually put a valid, cogent point together.

    Furthermore, everything you've posted is both wrong and intentionally inflammatory, thus I posit you have no interest in actual discussion, nor can there be any rational debate with you.

    I am sorry for that; I expect more than that out of GBATemp. You have the dubious honor of being one of the few on my ignore list.

    To the depths with ye.

    Annnd... done.

    My, that did feel rather nice. Time to get back to The Stanley Parable, followed by a nice round of Trails in the Sky and finally some Metal Gear Solid V to top off the evening.

    mayeb 8.1 is the problem then also what generation i5 are you using not that i think they have much improvement since haswell broadwell was only marginally better, not sure about skylake ultramobiles but they are liars haswell was a disaster
    cured me from ever wanting to own an x86 mobile anything ever again ,nothing smaller than a full laptop

    which version of the surface are you using then? the surface 4?

    also i really hate android too but i do not own an android device save for an old phone running like 4.2

    i want something that runs apps i want a 1st tablet, since i also do not own an ipad
    just an older laptop and a fairly new, albeit totally useless utrabook
    the shiels is attractive to me cause it can run games as well ad be a tablet that runs everyday tablet functions
    also i image that arm is more true to specs in terms of battery life as well
    if had my choice and 3 grand to drop i would bin this POS ultrabook and my old i3 laptop and get the surface book i7 with 1tb
    and and the new shield , i don't like the surface because the keyboard hinge and kick stand make it unusable for use sitting up in bed
    but i don't like the surface book either because it is 14" ,way too big to used as a tablet
    maybe the next gen core M windows tablets will finally be usable but right now they are too weak or they have fans
    another thing that should not be in a mobile device, like full windows
    my i7 ultrabook convertible i found is the worst of both worlds too weak to even web browse , too weak to use as a laptop and still too big heavy and goofy to be used as a tablet , nothing runs smooth in x86 mode and the batter life is not even 1/10th of what was promised

    if the other poster thinks thinks that an intel atom will run dolphin better than an invidia shield x1 then let him put his money where his mouth is lets see him run it on that piece of crap

    because it runs near full speed already on the shield console
    i would love to see a side by side comparison test of dolphin on both devices

    seems like it would be uncomfortable because the KB hinge is not rigid , it just flops back and you have to sue the kickstand
    not sure that is really practical for me
    plus i think it is too soon to buy one, they release the 4 like 6 months after the 3 they have made a lot of improvements i will wit till they make a smaller surface book of a surface tab that is as powerful as the i7 surface book but has fanless core M
    core M has 1/3 less power consumption and is getting close in performance to the i7
    i have not actually used anything over haswell gen and i do not trust intel at all , really dont trust MS anymore after the RT fiasco i pitty anyone who wasted all that money on a surface 2

    When do I get an Android tablet with two GTX Titan Zs in SLI and a 5960X? (JK)

    But it is nice to know that appears to be ready. (I think that these things are not mistakes when they happen)

    good luck getting anything fanless, especially if you ant any sort of power. some phones even have liquid cooling systems now.

    really i would like to see that so liquid and no fan or liquid and still a fan?

    yeah obviously not right now but intels core M had decent specs and one of the surface models use it i think
    i am saying in the next couple of gens it should get where i7 is now
    fans are a huge headache my fan died not even a year into my haswell purchase took almost 3 months to get it back from warranty and now it is sounding like it is going to shit the be again ,not even 6 months later
    tablets and ultrabooks need to solve this problem ipad air 2 has no fan nor does the shield K1
    it is way too much money to waste on something that has major problem that i feel WILL be solves in the next year or 2
    i have serious regrets on the money i wasted on this i7 ultrabook i would not have so much regret if i only waste 300 on a shield tab
    even if it has a fan
    this is why i would not buy a surface with I 5/7 fans do not really belong i tablets and ultramobile devices and
    this is going to change fairly soon and it is a major change one that will have users who dropped all this cash on these devices now regret it
    this is something that will really make people have to have an upgrade
