Although the Surface 2 performed solidly in the 3DMark Ice Storm tests, it couldn’t outpace all of the competition. In the overall score and in the Graphics test it came in second only to the NVIDIA SHIELD, and the story was the same on the GT1 and GT2 tests. However, the Surface 2 struggled a little in the Physics test, coming up short against the SHIELD, Intel Atom Z3770 reference tablet, and the ASUS T100TA.
