Microsoft surface pro

Post by dbw1 »

Is anyone running this on a Microsoft surface pro? If so what are the specs of your Pro?
I've been contemplating a Windows 10 replacement for my Ipad and being able to run CMO on it would be a plus.

While I'm primarily playing this on my main desktop, I've also installed it on my 5th gen SurfPro i7 @2.5, 16GB.

Expectedly it's not as zippy as my desktop, but it's perfectly acceptable; the same machine ran CMANO without problems.

It does use medium-heavy CPU (though not so much GPU) and I'm not sure I'd want to play it for hours at a time, or at least I'd use a cooling tray.

I've also installed Tacview - this runs OK too but is very heavy on GPU - definitely only for short periods.

I have practically the same Surface Pro as guanotwozero -- more or less the same experience although I haven't noticed any issues with running tacview or the game for several hours at a go (I'm not using a cooler or anything special like that). Although that said, I do tend to stop and start tacview as needed though (haven't done a scenario that warrants having it open full time...I tend to use it to watch A-A because that's what I'm used to doing with it from other game contexts).

There are a couple threads on this already. Might want to search the forum. There are some useful answers and specs in them.

Thanks for the responses. I’m looking to get my first surface pro and would like to use cmo on it.
