    I’ve posted this video up in the youtube channel, it’s a quick review of the tablet for those interested without focusing on it’s gaming performance or benchmarks (They are all covered in the playlist). It’s not my final review, but just a review after 4 days of heavy use and my thoughts on the X98 Pro. I’m thinking I might even hold off on my written review and rating until I get the International version. Some of the issues experienced might be due to me loading a Windows 10 image that isn’t the factories one. (Microphone issue for example)

    Here’s the vid:

    And for those after benchmarks and numbers to compare it to your current tablet, here you go!

    I’m still hitting the thermal throttling limit, but not game enough to open mine up to mod like Chris 🙁

    Does anyone know if Teclast are planning on releasing a cherry based 7.9″ tablet, like a X89 Pro or something?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask…

    I got my X98 Pro Int’l version today, as expected, still a heat issue. It reached 85 degrees running a RE5 benchmark. The good news is the factory image fixed my microphone issues. So i will update the review to reflect this change.

    It’s not for everyone and I don’t recommend it unless you have done something like this before because it could kill the tablet doing this.. I did a test today, factory X98 Pro Vs copper heatsink modded and it got 24% higher scores in the Resident Evil 5 benchmark. I’ll have a video up of in soon in the TT YT channel.

    I’ve done some work inside laptops before with replacing components, but nothing like jimmying open tablets and reapplying thermal paste. Am also worried about causing a short or putting too much pressure on the IPS like you mentioned

    Hi Chris,

    I’m also planning to do the thermal mod you did. I bought the following:

    • Thermal paste
    • Thermal 1mm pad (a big one)
    • Copper 20x20mm, 1.2mm plate
    • Copper 15x15mm, muliple thickness plates

    I think I have everything, but the same as other people here I’ve never done this before. Could you make or point us to a video where it is done? Or maybe a written tutorial? Because I dont want to cause a short, put to much thermal paste on there, or do something stupid.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Chris!

     

    Just wanted to say that I really enjoy your reviews. You manage to cover pretty much every angle in your video(s). Thanks a lot for taking your time doing that.

    I hope you know the answer to my question.

    I want to buy this tablet <span style=”font-family: Arial;”><span style=”color: #000000;”><span style=”text-decoration: none;”>TECLAST X98 Pro Dual Os</span></span></span>. My question is about future updates for windows operating system. Will they be coming directly from Microsoft (just like on my laptop) or from Teclast or there will be no updates at all? And same question about future updates for Android OS? I have a feeling there will be none (official) for Android but was hoping that since the Windows copy (Teclast is claiming) is genuine, there would be some regular updates directly from Microsoft.
    Thank you,
    Sergei
