System performance as a whole is better, and storage performance is about the same as the previous generation. There is a boost in 4K reads, but a drop in 4K writes.

 

Network performance is similar, but the BRIX still uses a 1x1 (433Mbps) mobile Wireless AC card compared to 2x2 (866Mbps) or 3x3 (1299Mbps) desktop cards which use a lot more power.
