ASRock's ASRock DeskMini GTX1080 is one of the best performing SFFPCs and by a long shot. It uses a typical desktop i7-8700, which is already one of the best gaming CPUs out there. However, that isn't the end of why its performance is so good, the mobile variant of the GTX 1080 is just a downclocked typical desktop GTX 1080, so when you add better cooling (like in this machine), you get basically the same levels of performance as a desktop with a GTX1080. The results were so strong I had to actually compare this unit against actual high-end gaming PCs for our gaming tests instead of other SFFPCs. Overall, performance rocks.

The ASRock DeskMini GTX1080 offers excellent storage performance because the Z370 chipset offers excellent performance. Wired networking as just as good as other desktops with Intel's i219v and wireless AC is where it should be for the 1x1 card provided with the unit.
