Overall the BRIX BSi7H-6500 does quite well in benchmarks. By comparing its performance to that of the BXi7H-5500, we can see the generational improvements that the Skylake microarchitecture brings to the table compared to the older Broadwell microarchitecture. Skylake's general improvements are roughly 5-10% while the clock speed has also been bumped 0.1GHz in both base and turbo clocks compared to the previous generation SoC.
What makes these results interesting is that both the Broadwell and Skylake CPUs are using the same exact DDR3L, so it's not the typical DDR4 Skylake run against a DDR3 Broadwell system. Compared to other SFF PCs, it is important to note that the BRIX and other NUC-style systems use mobile variants of the Core processors while some non-standard systems such as the ECS LIVA X are using desktop variants, which run at higher clocks and use more power.
