Been using it for more than a week and very impressed so far

The best Wacom-based bargain out there right now. Well-built, accurate, surprisingly fast SSD (not eMMC) and CPU. If I were you, I would order straight from manufacturer despite the slightly higher price.

I had some free time so i tried installing windows 10 rtm. Works nice. Was even able to activate it, which didn´t work with 8.1 bing.
Pros: The driver script didn´t work, but i was able to install individual drivers. Seems snappy. Edge browser is superfast. Some benchmarks heaven 4.0: 329 points. 3dmark 2011: P871.
Cons: Couldnt install the reg file for the sensor, so the orientation sensor doesnt work. Windows doesnt allow me to edit the registry at all. The physical windows button works, but there is no vibration feedback. Any ideas?

Another interesting program is ThrottleStop:
Download is available here


The main window gives a brief overview about temperature, package power, clock multiplier and throttling reason:

A click on TPL (Turbo Power Limits) shows different settings to manually adjust the cpu TDP:
(Note: TDP locks need to be disabled in UEFI -> CPU settings to have access here).

The most interesting feature is probably the integrated voltage control, it allows to undervolt specifically parts of the core package:
(It needs further testing to see if and how much impact does this function have on an ultra-low voltage cpu.)

Ok so i´ve tried that, doesnt install any of the drivers. Cannot access the files on mega, could you try reuploading them and i will try them out!
Btw the vibration on the windows button came back by itself =)

Thx! The driver install fine. The orientation is upside down though. Ive been playing around with the orientation reg file, but Ive only been able to get the screen rotated 90 degrees to the side. If i do that and lock the screen the accelerometer works in games at least. Asphalt 8 works very smoothly!
There seems to be trouble with the bluetooth as well, it only keeps on searching indefinitly. Maybe a driver issue. I will try to look into it.

My order is from Geekbuying.com which seems to cause much trouble for several Cube i7 buyers.
It was in customs "custody" for several weeks because they declared it completely wrong.

It's probably for the best to avoid Geekbuying.com

I also ordered through geekbuying. The tablet was very buggy out of the box, thats why i went along and tried windows 10. The screen was water damaged with a large dark spot in the middle. I was able to fix it with this trick though!

Geekbuying is absolutely inadvisable (to put it politely), i also got the version with pre-installed kms activator which is a very questionable practice for a "proper" retailer.

I agree. My i7 stylus was shipped weeks after they deducted payment, the seals were broken, the screen protector had serious scratches all over it (may have been a display unit), and windows was bootlegged. I would strongly advise against doing business with them.

Thx mate! That reg setting set everything right with the orientation! The bluetooth driver gave the same error, maybe a windows 10 issue.

Has anyone opened the tablet?

Has anyone opened the tablet to replace the SSD or anything else and can give instructions on how to do it without damage?

I just realized that THERE ARE instructions but Google Translate does a mess with chinese and it's very difficult to understand :eek:
