I agree that a lower resolution is better for performance, and clearly nVidia is going for the gamer vote. But the tablet getting warm really isn't much of a drawback for 1200p. That's no big deal.

Also, my vision is pretty good and on a 7-inch diagonal the difference between 800p and 1200p is definitely discernible. You'd have a much better argument there if we were talking about phones.

Ultimately I think 1200p is a much better configuration. Lowering the resolution is a quick way to get better gaming performance and to avoid the SoC throttling to dump heat, but that's just the thing: gaming on Android is nothing to write home about, let alone the tablet form factor. I'd go with a 1200p device because I don't care about gaming on Android, but I do like it when texts and images look better.
