The surface pro 3 has a single fan solution. Unless that is changed for the i7 gaming will not be possible for most games. I am noticing severe throttling after a few minutes of any kind of gaming... even minecraft on an i5 to the point where after 3-4 minutes it is running slower then an i3. The i7 HD5000 with double the GPU EU's will be even worse off. Unless the i7 surface pro 3 has a different fan design your i7 will be running like an i3 after 2-3 minutes of gaming. In short don't expect the SP3 to play any games in any decent capacity and people seem very excited for the HD5000 in the i7 when it is completely pointless because it will never run at the level to differentiate itself from an i5 (let a lone an i3). It is true that the i7 will be slightly faster with more execution units at a throttled speed but it will be still slower then an i3 running non throttled. I have done some aggressive undervolting but still getting throttled speeds. I am looking into ways of preventing the throttling but there will likely be little room because temps are hitting 87C already.
