Quite often we get the question: How good is the BRIX compared to a ordinary PC. We can now bring you the ultimate test, where our lovely GB-BXi7-4770R takes on several desktop CPUs.
We guess that you will find the results from GB-BXi7-4770R quite impressive.
Please note that we also marked the Intel Core i3-4330 in below diagrams. The reason for this is simple: More or less you can compare the desktop i3 with our GB-BXi3-5010 based on the facts that our GB-BXi7-4770R performs very similar to the i7-4770K CPU.
BRIX is super powerful, and its extremely compact. The future is here.

Benchmark: Single- and Multi-core
GB-BXi7-4770R outperforms all CPUs from Intel, except the Core i7-4770K.
Memory Analisys (AIDA64 v4.00.2805)
Please remember that Intel Core i7 uses 1866 MHz memory while our GB-BXi7-4770R uses 1600 MHz.
We have a new king when it comes to combined power. Our GB-BXi7-4770R gets better results than the high-end Core i7 4770K CPU and its simply because of the more powerful iGPU (Iris PRO 5200 vs Intel HD 4600).
