Hi everyone! So today I went to the FNAC store here in Paris with my SP4 i5 4gb to try and compare it with the new Surface Pro (2017) of same configuration - the fanless version!
I had to test it with a benchmark tool available in the Windows Store as that is the only thing the vendor would allow me to install, so I used this that I found there: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrdhlqt
As you can see in the two videos below, results are inconclusive: when the benchmark tool, that simulates 3D gaming, is set to mostly low quality and most high end options are left off, my old SP4 has a clear advantage over the new one both in score and in terms of average FPS. Yet in the second video, I maxed out all options (high quality shadows, reflections, etc etc) and in that test it was the new fanless SP that was the winner almost doubling the frames output of my SP4. See for yourselves:
High end options off: https://youtu.be/-DSbfiUfn2M
High end options on: https://youtu.be/DPm4So0cSTI (sorry this video was shot with the phone turned around so you’ll have to turn your screen around )
What do you guys think?
One more thing: can anyone here with a Eve V i5 run the benchmarking software with the same options to see what fps and score it gets? Could anyone film it/upload it or at least take a picture?
Here’s again the link to the benchmarking app: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrdhlqt
all my best,
