    Thanks so much, @MacrosTheBlack007 ! I can't wait to see the entire gamut of benchmarks once you settle in and get your device all primed and ready.

    Awesome! Do you happen to have Ice Storm Unlimited, Cloud Gate, and Fire Strike numbers? Those are the most common tests referred to from 3DMark.

    I wonder if part of it is old graphics drivers. The version currently installed is from back in November. I'll install the latest greatest and see if that makes a difference.

    After updating the graphics drivers and turning off Windows Defender, I now show the following scores:

    Ice Storm Extreme 20,075 (double the Surface 3 score of 10,000)
    Ice Storm 28,597
    Sky Diver 2,067
    Geekbench Single-Core 3,407
    Geekbench Multi-Core 5,164

    These benchmarks were run on AC power on the high performance setting.

    Those are looking a whole lot better! I hope you didn't mind me being so picky, and I am just uber picky with my tablet performance. I imagine you, as most people, like to know your device was designed well enough to utilize most of the CPU's potential inside of it. I really wish this device was on display somewhere. The Microsoft Store was gracious enough to allow me to benchmark the Surface Pro 4 when it first came out. I would love to see if there is anything else that can be done to raise those numbers any more. I am positive your Transformer 3's Core i5-7Y54 is technically capable of quite a bit more than the Core m3-6Y30 in my Surface Pro 4. Are you using the latest graphics drivers from Asus' website or these ones from Intel's site? If not, give these a whirl:
