Intel's Intel Compute Card uses a Core m3 processor, which is a step up from Pentium based processors in other very low powered SFF PCs. We see that it demolishes the Intel Compute Sticks, both original and new, and it also does well against the N300, LIVA X, CI320, Racing P1. Against a quad-core Pentium processor such as the N3700, it holds up.
Its dual-channel DDR3 memory doesn't hold up against DDR4 in dual channel but does against some of the NUCs that used DDR3 SO-DIMMs. It competes well in PCMark Home and Work tests against some of the older NUCs as well. WebXPRT shows us how responsive the system is and that it can actually do quite well in real life scenarios. One of the bigger weaknesses of the Compute Card is its 3D performance; it's simply not equipped for games that aren't webpage based.
Storage and Network Performance
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The Intel Compute Card has a decent SSD inside, and that is one of the reasons the system feels snappy enough for normal use. Its random read and write speeds are great, and its sequential speeds can easily beat a SATA drive. Networking speeds were solid because the wired NIC is in the dock and the wireless NIC is a decent model.
