    T100 Questions

    1. I see some posts where the T100 is apparently about 8% faster than the Venue 8 Pro. Why would it be that much if same chipset and OS? Edit: 8% is probably high, but does the T100 have the dual channel version of the 3740? The V8P has the single channel D version.

    2. Is it possible to use a flash thumbdrive at the same time as using a mouse and keyboard? Same for controllers.

    3. If that is possible, can it be done portable, or do you need a powered hub?

    4. Can you use blue tooth mouse and keyboard at same time and use a thumbdrive?

    5. Does the charge rate keep up when using HDMI, or is it a net negative like when using the feature with phones? I ask this due to the low power charger. Seems using wifi and outputting hires at same time could go negative.

    I was considering the V8 Pro, but lack of hdmi was a killer for me.

    The T100 is suppose to have the none D version of the Z3740, they just have the same amount of RAM installed but would means a little better memory bandwidth for the T100... 10.6 GB/s vs 17.1GB/s... Even though the D is technically using the faster LP-DDR3 1333MHz RAM and the none D is using the slower LP-DDR3 1066MHz RAM but the dual channel clearly has the advantage.

    Mind, 8% may seem like a lot on a benchmark but in actual usage it's hard to notice anything less than 30%... Still nice to have every edge you can get though...

    Yes, depending on your set up you can have a couple of arrangements but the easiest would be to just get a USB 3.0 HUB... It's high speed and can easily handle pretty much anything you may plan to throw at it... USB 3.0 spec also supports a little higher power output than 2.0, not counting the 100W specification they're starting to push out soon (not a option for the T100 anyway), which should help with the HUB...

    Unless you plan to connect a lot of devices at the same time then no, Keyboard and Mouse are pretty low powered and wireless would have their own batteries... HDD or Burner would be the most power consuming for normal usage but it should be able to handle a few of those.

    Yes, but if you're using WiFi then you can have some signal conflict unless you make sure to connect over 5GHz for WiFi as Bluetooth uses the 2.4GHz range... T100 is suppose to have a dual WiFi support, so you should be covered as long as you have a AP that supports 5GHz... Also watch out for other devices in your area that may also be on the 2.4GHz range as interference can be cumulative...

    Don't think anyone has tried yet but it's a slow charge to begin with, can take over 4 hours to charge, and if you use up enough power then it's possible to start losing charge even with the charger in place... System is good for hours though, even gaming you should get 6+ hours on a full charge... Just web browsing would normally get you around 8-10 hours and doing nothing but watching 720P videos continuously can maybe make it to 12 hours...

    Basically, like any other mobile device they system will shut off anything not being used to help conserve power and will power sip whenever possible... Just no fast charging options, even if you shut the system off first... Though, that generally means the battery wear won't be fast and it'll last longer.

    An iPad, for example, can go down to about 60% capacity after 9 months of hard usage... and similarly is not user replaceable!

    Unfortunately, it'll probably be another year or so before we see high powered USB chargers as they only recently decided to push forward the 100W specification that will allow up to 100W to be pushed over a USB connection. So everything from phones to high end laptops could be powered by USB chargers in the future but that's the future...

    Though, considering that by the end of next year we will see the next architecture and FAB advance for the ATOM for Airmont at 14nm... it means we may finally see close to Ultrabook range performance in these low end mobile range devices but that's either late 2014 or early 2015... Bay Trail already gets within 40% and both an architectural advance and a FAB advance at the same time usually means a fairly significant improvement will be coming...
