GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXBT-1900 Review: A Bay Trail UCFF PCby Ganesh T S on October 24, 2014 12:10 PM EST
Performance Metrics - I
The GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-1900 was evaluated using our standard test suite for low power desktops / industrial PCs. We revamped our benchmark suite earlier this year after the publication of the Intel D54250WYK NUC review. We reran some of the new benchmarks on the older PCs also, but some of them couldn't be run on loaner samples. 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. The Celeron J1900 is obviously not in the league of the Haswell CPUs. To make a relevant comparison - it indeed scores better than the Celeron N2806 (Bay Trail-M) in the ECS LIVA. However, unlike the LIVA unit, the BXBT-1900 is not passively cooled.
Miscellaneous Futuremark Benchmarks
3D Mark 11's extreme benchmarking mode has always consistently failed with Bay Trail for us. Therefore, the only frame of reference we have is the entry level score in the graph below.
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.
