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

Futuremark PCMark 7 - PCMark Suite Score

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.

Futuremark 3DMark 2013 - Ice Storm Score

Futuremark 3DMark 2013 - Cloud Gate Score

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

    A dual-NIC version of this would make an incredible pfSense router.

    I had the exact same thought. I hope Gigabyte reads these comments and decides to produce such a device.

    The GIGABYTE GA-J1900N-D3V (recently reviewed here) has those two ports and would fit that niche as well. There is also lots of USB Ethernet adapters out there, which at 100Mbit/USB 2.0 might be good enough for your uplink and there is also Gbit/USB 3.0 variants which may be a little trickier in terms of device drivers.

    I just wanted to post this here. Dualcore sandy bridge cpu, m-itx, m-pcie, it can run a laptop display, msata, runs off a 19v powersupply from a dell or hp, and uses sodimms in case you have any laptop memory around. For 52 dollars.

    how does that run a laptop display?
  • jdav - Friday, October 24, 2014 - link

    LVDS monitor ribbon interface in the corner by the mSATA interface. Most laptop displays use this format to connect to the motherboard. The white 8-pin header to the left of that I believe is for the display power.

    So this variant (with the J1900) will never come to NA?

  • alhopper - Saturday, October 25, 2014 - link

    What's the point of this review if the product cannot be purchased?
  • OrphanageExplosion - Saturday, October 25, 2014 - link

    Because Anandtech does have readers outside of North America?
  • Tikcus9666 - Saturday, October 25, 2014 - link

    Because the world is much much bigger than the USA
