CPU Benchmarks

 

The Zotac CI320 (reviewed here) also uses a Celeron N2930 CPU with similar clocks; however it has double the cores (4 vs 2) of the Celeron N2808 that the LIVA X uses.

 

CINEBENCH 11.5

wPrime v2.10

The higher number of CPU cores of the Zotac system make it the winner in the CPU tests.

Both systems have similar graphics setups, however, the difference in the CPUs makes the scores differ.

 

 

System Benchmarks

I actually expected the LIVA X to win in this one. The LIVA X has better RAM setup and this is where that shines.

The eMMC gets beat here by the normal 2.5-inch SSD that the Zotac system uses, however, we will see the impact of using eMMC compared to a standard SSD in the power consumption tests. The LIVA X is capable of housing an mSATA drive, which could beat the drive included in the Zotac system, but that is an aftermarket upgrade and outside the purview of this review.
