GIGABYTE BRIX Pro: A First Look at the Intel i7-4770R with Iris Pro HD 5200by Ganesh T S on January 7, 2014 8:00 PM EST
The BRIX Pro was evaluated using our standard test suite for low power desktops / industrial PCs. Note that some of the benchmarks are pretty recent (such as x264 v5.0 and 3D Mark 2013). Loaner samples haven't been tested with these new benchmarks. Therefore, the list of PCs in each graph are not the same. In the Windows Experience Index, the BRIX Pro scored 6.9, and was primarily held back by the graphics subsystem.
These benchmark numbers are downright impressive for a system in this form factor.

mfoley93 - Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - linkThe issue with the AMD APUs is that they have used different GPUs accross the line, whereas Intel only has 3 active GPU SKUs. So while the GPU in the 95 Watt A-10 7850 labeled only as R7 would likely smoke Iris Pro/HD 5200, the GPU in the 65 Watt A-8 7600 may only perform similarly to the Iris Pro when it finally launches. AMD using different GPUs may have changed though, since they haven't released the A-4, A-6, and A-8 models yet.

A quick jaunt over to AMD's website shows that their tendency to use different GPUs has not changed. Even though there is no info about the A-8 7600, one can see that the A-10 7700K has two compute units disabled on the GPU compared to the 7850K.
mikk - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkThe GPU is probably comparable or maybe slightly slower than this Iiris Pro. It has more Gflops as well as more bandwidth with its edram.
jeffkibuule - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkYou need to go read the Iris Pro graphics review again to see why just measuring GFLOPs doesn't give you the result you seem to expect.
ryrynz - Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - linkFunny cos, they're gonna make you wait.
XZerg - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkI am waiting to see the Zotac IQ01 availability and benches. 4770T in a small enclosure.
Daisho11 - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkI really wish they would make one of these with the PSU built in, instead of having a power brick hanging off the back.
patterson32 - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkAt least it helps with heat minimization. Positive thoughts.
MikeMurphy - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkThis is a tech site. Instead of telling us the cooling is insufficient, I hope you'll show us the config and explore replacement fans etc. Are the cooling mounts LGA standard?
patterson32 - Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - linkI'd like AT to explore quieter replacement fans as well. Fanless cases might be okay too but they'll probably cost a lot compared to the system just like the NUC ones.
