    Surface Pro Overclock? Tweaks?

    Has anyone attempted to overclock or tweak any more power/speed/graphic ability out of the Surface Pro. I'm really enjoying mine but looking to push it a little bit, cooling definitely may be a concern though.

    Intel i series CPU with HD4000? Try XTU, if it doesn't work then let me see the firmware of that thing.
    BIOS / VBIOS modification requests addressed to me need to be posted here: BIOS / VBIOS modification request thread (svl7)

    - bricked your GPU with a bad VBIOS flash? -> contact me

    It should be doable if you can get a complete firmware dump. The BIOS will need to be modified to flag for XTU support and the ME FW modified to support BCLK overclocking. It's very unlikely that your CPU is not multiplier locked, but BCLK overclocking should still work. This will overclock everything in the system.

    Use fpt (DOS) or fpt64 (windows) to attempt to dump your entire firmware. This link has fpt in it along with many other tools and documentation. The command to dump will be "fpt -d whateveryouwanttonamethefirmwaredump" for the DOS version. You'll likely get an error code about the CPU not having access, in which case we would need to find a workaround (if one exists).

    SVL7, ill do a bios dump this week and post it up, XTU doesn't provide any adjustment other than the Turbo Boost.

    Thanks

    Hello, sorry for using an old thread.
    I'm very interested on an unlocked bios for the surface pro, would be great for adjusting system performance (increase gpu speed and decrease cpu speed to keep it more balanced).

    The "Surface Pro firmware and driver packs" could probably include all relevant bios files that are needed:
    Download Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro firmware and driver packs from Official Microsoft Download Center
