So I'm not sure why you "hope" that x86 tablets are reasonably priced...because they already are very reasonably priced.

Bay Trail's GPU is essentially 1/4 of the HD4000 in a 3770K, and is powerful enough to play Counter Strike Source. I know because I own a Bay Trail tablet and have personally tried. So GTA VC and CS 1.6 are no problem at all on any Bay Trail tablet.

Heck, you can even run Dirt 2 on a Bay Trail tablet like the Venue 8 Pro.


Half life 2 on the Transformer T100 (also Bay Trail Atom based):
Not to mention that Bay Trail tablets can all get nearly 10 hours of battery life (or more, in some cases).

Very nice! Although those two titles are not really challenging for ULV SoC chips. Either way they are all pretty good. Power consumption should increase dramatically while using the HD 4000. My siblings have Tablets with the chip in it.

Well, "TheLAWNOOB" was asking about CS1.6 and GTA Vice City, so I figured I'd provide a few examples of newer games to show that CS1.6/GTA VC wouldn't be an issue on any Bay Trail tablet.

I usually get about 9 hours of battery life doing web browsing, Netflix, and office apps, which is pretty good for an 8 inch tablet running full Windows IMO. Sadly AMD doesn't have anything which can compete with Bay Trail for battery life/performance/price or I would have considered them before buying my tablet. I was actually considering an E-350 netbook back in the day since the performance was better than the Atom CPUs from a few years back.

Gaming battery life is of course worse, but that's the case with any mobile device when used for gaming wink.gif

I will look like a hypocrite saying this, but "it had better be". 4 times the endurance(44 vs 13 hours), 1/4th the power consumption for the panel. Nexus 7 has much higher brightness and much lower gamma flare - reading text is easy on the eyes. Battery hasn't died on me once, though it would seem like regular practice - I have found myself in that circumstance many times with my netbook. And it boots faster and I haven't yet been able to crash the os... which are all nice expressions of reliability.
Low temperature polysilicon and shallow bezel depth are good engineering advances that advance visibility. The color depth and saturation of Nexus 7 is not depicted enough in this comparison, but LTPS panels have higher reflectivity and better color reproduction while sporting a lower power gradient.
"Displaymate" has taken it to the top three contenders of mobile space.

I had an E-350 back in the day. I was getting 9-10 hours but that was with an eight cell. 6 While watching Netflix and 4 while playing games. Depended on the game too, some games taxed a lot of the processor causing it draw more. I found display brightness to ultimately determine the batteries longevity. All the source games where ran at Native resolution and at medium-high settings, the newer valve games I had to run at lower settings. Even got L4D2 to run at a constant 30-40 fps. Later in the notebooks life it started to lose performance, but it was really the age of notebook + the quality of the motherboard. Tropico 3 ran like a champ!
