Performance Metrics - I

The CompuLab fitlet-XA10-LAN was evaluated using our standard test suite for low power desktops / industrial PCs. Not all benchmarks were processed on all the machines due to updates in our testing procedures. Therefore, the list of PCs in each graph might not be the same.

Futuremark PCMark 8

PCMark 8 provides various usage scenarios (home, creative and work) and offers ways to benchmark both baseline (CPU-only) as well as OpenCL accelerated (CPU + GPU) performance. We benchmarked select PCs for the OpenCL accelerated performance in all three usage scenarios. These scores are heavily influenced by the CPU in the system. It was very surprising to see that the AMD A10 Micro-6700T with unlocked TDP can easily outperform Bay Trail and Braswell-based passively cooled NUCs. In fact, only the much costlier and larger Logic Supply NUCs are able to perform better than the Compulab fitlet-XA10-LAN in the Futuremark benchmarks.

3D Rendering - CINEBENCH R15

We have moved on from R11.5 to R15 for 3D rendering evaluation. CINEBENCH R15 provides three benchmark modes - OpenGL, single threaded and multi-threaded. Evaluation of select PCs in all three modes provided us the following results.

3D Rendering - CINEBENCH R15 - Single Thread

3D Rendering - CINEBENCH R15 - Multiple Threads

3D Rendering - CINEBENCH R15 - OpenGL

The results are similar to what one might expect based on the Futuremark benchmarks.

    I don't have each side by side to compare. But the 2c4 has intel NICs, and performs very well for me. I have not tried line rates, but I have pushed around 250 Mbps without issue. CPU usage was still very low. Reply

    While I understand using TrueCrypt may be a useful metric for benchmarking, it would be good to include a disclaimer letting folks know it is no longer suitable for production use.

    Per the project home page:
    Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues.
    You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform.

    While it is no longer being developed, it didn't suddenly become un-secure. In any case, VeraCrypt has pretty much picked up from where TrueCrypt left off. Reply

    For my money, a quick search on Amazon for Mini PC will find a TON of Intel based small fanless alternatives, anywhere from fully decked out Celeron J1900 up to bare bones Core I7 for that kind of money. Reply

    Which one of them has 4 GbE LAN ports? I would like to compare apples to apples, and I am obviously interested in see what the other options in the market are. Reply

    Lots of them, here is one from a 2 second search: Reply

    oh, but footprint is nowhere close to that of the fitlet-XA10-LAN. One is a proper mITX, the other seems slightly bigger than a standard NUC.

    That is why I mention in the review that it is not easy to get something in the form factor of the fitlet-XA10-LAN and still get 4 LAN ports.

    The 2nd one I linked is smaller. Reply

    This one ?
    Smart design (134 * 126 * 47 mm )
    vs the review unit 108 x 83 x 24
    Yours is over twice as tall, 50% deeper and 30% wider adding up to over 3 times the volume.
