does anyone have a surface pro 3 and how does SL run on it?

Question

That's an Intel processor. The Surface Pro 3 does not have a graphics card, lol. Where would it fit.

Don't use it for Second Life. Surface Pro's are designed for casual web browsing and maybe some multimedia use.

Definitely not capable of hardware-powered 3D gaming.

Hi Barb,

People are able to run SL on mid settings using the integrated Intel graphics. But, in a tablet they may throttle the graphics processor speed to keep things cool and preserve battery life. For that reason, a Surface Pro 3 may not run SL as well as a laptop using exactly the same processor.

I've not heard any reports from Surface Pro users, so can't say how they've actually fared.

Search for "Surface Pro 3 Second Life" on YouTube. There are a handful of reviews showing complex scenes at 10fps or so. This is with maximized windows and the native 2160x1440 screen resolution. It should be faster if the window size were reduced, or if it were run at a lower screen resolution.

It appears usable, but it might not be the best choice for one's primary computer.
