The issue that is causing some Surface Pro 3 tablets to shut down and report that the tablet is overheating is an error, reports Microsoft this week.
Microsoft also reports that it is currently working on a fix for the Surface Pro 3 tablet overheating issue and explains that a “very small number” of Surface Pro 3 tablets have been affected by the reporting error.
Microsoft says the Pro 3 tablet chip requires the “fan to spin more regularly and at higher speeds – and for the unit to run slightly warmer.”
To re-cap the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet is equipped with a 12-inch display offering a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels, and can be equipped with a variety of Intel processor options, from Core i3 to i7 supported by up to 512GB of SSD storage with up to 8GB of RAM, with the 64 and 128GB Pro 3 models offering 4GB of RAM with the remainder offering 8GB.
Other features of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet include WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, as well as 5 megapixel front facing camera for video calling, and another 5 megapixel rear facing for video and photographs. All powered by a batty that is capable of providing up to 9 hours life on a single charge.
