Lenovo 's ThinkStation P320 Tiny uses a single 7700T, which is a quad-core Kaby Lake CPU with hyperthreading and a 35W TDP. The 35W TDP comes with some performance cuts, so the 7700T is nowhere close to the 7700, 7700K, or even 6700K as operating frequency has been heavily cut. However, you still get excellent single core performance, and it's enough to get things done. We are also dealing with single channel memory, so when memory makes an impact, it will score a bit lower in certain areas.
If we look at the OpenGL test, the Quadro P600 beats the GTX 980 in our reference desktop. Most of the desktops/workstations in our charts are optimized for more cores and threads, but those aren't the strong points of the 7700T used in the P320 Tiny. The P320 Tiny does well in Cryptography and molecular dynamics benchmarks as well as MS office productivity (single core performance is good).
Overall, you can't really demand too much compute power from a device so small. While being small is an upside, a bigger upside is lower power usage.
Storage and Network Performance
External Storage (USB)
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The ThinkStation P320 Tiny's SSD is scoring well. It's a NVMe based SSD, close in performance to a Samsung 950 series drive, but it's made by Toshiba. The USB write speed was a bit surprising, but the read wasn't the best. The wired NIC is performing where it should.
