Razor Edge Pro may be able to handle majority of pc games at 720p on medium-low since they have nVidia gpu 640m, but surface pro 3 only has Intel iris igp it would perform worse than edge.

Surface Pro 3 only has Intel HD 4200, 4400, or 5000.

Pick one.

A tablet is NOT the same as a laptop.

That's why he said pick one.

they are prone to overheating, would not recommend gaming anything other than older GOG software even if the integrated graphics is powerful enough to handle it.

My Venue Pro 8 can play Skyrim, X:com and such on low settings, so I imagine most newer tablets could run at least that level of game on medium settings.

You have to acknowledge the fact that any tablet is only useful for a specific type of gaming. Nobody in the Android and iOS camps can strut around bragtrolling their platform's AAA releases. When you game on a Windows tablet, you can primarily play tablet games.

That said, since non-RT Windows is backward compatible, you can theoretically play a bunch of old games (available at your friendly that primarily use the mouse for interaction via screen-pokes.

while I'm not interested in tablet gaming or such to me the better option would be the nVidia shield gaming tablet and then do the game streaming.

I can play anything (with low settings and great fps) on my Surface Pro 2.
I imagine the Pro 3 is slightly better.

No idea about that other thing tho.

do you ever come into issues with battery life, or even heat on your SP2?

Pick one.

Some people can't move on. Tablet's wont run much, but modern laptops will run things pretty fine. Not as good as a Desktop, obviously, but still good for a portable solution.

SP3 has serious issues with heat and cpu throttling, I wouldn't recommend getting one for gaming.
