Unreal Engine Overheating New iPad

Fox News turns our attention to numerous complaints about recently launched iPad. The device seems to be overheating and reaching temperatures of 116 degrees, supposedly when users are running Epic's Unreal Engine

This occurs with graphically demanding titles like Infinity Blade II. It appears that the temperatures were considerably warmer than the iPad 2; that's according to Donna L. Tapellini, an analyst with Consumer Reports. "In the past, we've tested the heat from laptops. When those hit 120 degrees, we found that could cause problems when exposed to bare skin," said Tapellini.

Well, the solution to this problem is simple. Just buy a damn PC or a console - there problem solved.

People are trying to play games on an iPad? Fucking idiots, you don't play games on a tiny fucking tablet! For the price of that iPad, they could buy a 360 and several $20 games. Better yet, they could save up some money and buy a mid-range PC.

It's not just with Unreal Engine games, or games in general, the new iPad has overheating issues for general usage, not to mention the yellow tint the screen has.

It's a very impressive device from a hardware engineering point of view. 9.5 inches long (heh), 650 grams, and a 2048x1536 display, plus a ten hour battery life from a reasonably powerful processor.

It's absurd to compare it to a console or a PC, because it's a totally different device.

That said, if this is true Apple seems rather fucked. I don't see how they're going to fix this; it's a hardware packaging issue and can't be fixed with a firmware update.

Free rubber protective cases to those that bitch about it. The thing will still burn up on the inside, but it won't fry your nuts as much in the process.

I say let em burn. You cannot cram that much power in a tiny tablet device without some kind of cooling.

I'm surprised Apple didn't capitalize on this by adding a slot for a piece of bread and griddle for eggs. Than the Ipad can literally cook you breakfast.

BTW, this happened to my PC. It's because the damn hardware (and software) isn't governed to reduce heat buildup. It just runs as fast as it can and assumes you've solved any cooling issues on your own. Right, Apple?
