    My CPU runs up to x15 when it needs to which is what.. almost 2ghz, I think.. Definitely not throttled back. (for the 64g version)

    As for the WEI, there's a thread here where people list their scores for everything. I almost told you to UTFS, but search is broken here.. You can use google to search this forum, though.

    How can you check how fast your processor is running?

    Got mine from Amazon. placed order end March, got it delivered (a couple thousand miles) on last week of April. one dead pixel (hardly noticeable and non disturbing - thank god) plus the yellow tinge on the upper left portion of the screen.

    32GB version local purchased at Fry's in Renton Washington with a $150 discount as the last item, and missing a keyboard. Right now, I'm typing on an iMac bluetooth keyboard which is much smaller and easier to carry wherever I go with the EP121. It compliments the slate very well too.

    I upgraded the machine to 4GB of RAM (DDR3 1600Mhz), with a 32GB Class 10 SD card for less than the discounted bucks, and couldn't be happier with my purchase. :)

    Try Throttlestop and unparking the cores on this. I haven't noticed a heat increase, but it runs faster, doesn't stutter or throttledown, and I disabled all power off functions in power management under device manager options.

    The throttling and core parking are Intel/Windows issues. They are power saving issues. Neither seems to do much to actually help anything, as I have used TS and core unparking on 4 laptops in the last year or so. I get better performance, but no heat issues or stutter. It is free, easy to try, and easy to stop. If interested, go to notebookreview forums (scroll up to the top of this page, and look for it in the header), look under hardware and look up the throttlestop forum. There are many users with feedback that you can see.
