Performance Metrics

The BIS-6922 review unit's i7-3720QM has the HD4000 GPU inside, and its performance with respect to HTPC metrics is quite well known. Given the target market of the system, we will not comment on its HTPC capabilities any further in this review. Instead, we just present benchmark numbers from our standard test suite for low power desktops / industrial PCs. Note that some of the benchmarks are pretty recent (such as x264 v5.0 and 3D Mark 2013). Loaner samples haven't been tested with these new benchmarks. Therefore, the list of PCs in each graph are not the same.

Windows Experience Index:

Similar to the Aletuia Relia, the BIS-6922 also scores 6.6 in the Windows Experience Index. It is primarily held back by the performance of the HD4000 GPU. On deeper analysis, we find that the Intel SSD 330 scores lower in the primary disk category compared to the Relia's Crucial mSATA SSD.

The SSD is easily swappable if the user desires, and Habey is also pretty flexible in responding to particular customer requirements with respect to various components. That said, the Intel SSD 330 is definitely good enough for casual desktop use. Most industrial PC applications are not disk-intensive, so the SSD 330 at default is not a bad choice for the BIS-6922.

    Crazy that they included a power supply not rated to meet max consumption, otherwise it seems like a nice industrial machine!

    Assuming the 68W measured number was wall power it was probably in spec; at 88% efficiency 68W in provides 60W out and peak efficiencies are near 50% at full load it''ll fall off some. It the brick was a cheap low efficiency model it might only have been putting out 50-55W at that point.

    I've used a 60w power brick on my A6-5400K system for nearly a year. Like all of them, it is a cheap Chinese brand, but it works. It does get hot, but I never pull 60w from a system where the CPU itself is rated at 65w alone. If you include motherboard overhead (chipset, memory) and SSD/optical drive (yes, it has both) the system should theoretically pull 90w.

    But it doesn't. I have a killowatt and it idles around 18w and never goes over 50w while playing back video. Even during Bluray playback it stays under 50w.

    Congratulations. They still should have shipped a larger brick.

    That's a ... very, very ... E-X-O-T-I-C word for 'power supply'. You know, I shit bricks sometimes, perhaps I should become their supplier...

    You should certainly do what you are best qualified for...
  • flyingpants1 - Friday, August 16, 2013 - link

    Maybe you already are. That would explain a lot.

    What I found interesting is that the system was tested with a 45W TDP CPU but in the specs says that supports up to 35W TDP CPUs and in the Datasheet also says that Power Design Supports up to 35W CPUs. Requiring 10W less translates into a cooler systems and the 60 W power supply should be ok. I found that i7-3612QM and i7-3632QM are 35W TDP CPUs with Tj 105 °C

    The external case reaching 155 deg F presents a definite safety issue. That's hot enough to burn skin.

    Something reaching that temperature in a work environment would very likely need big warning labels or more likely, be enclosed in a cage to protect workers from incidental contact.

    Clearly, this is not for home users. It's hard to imagine a computing product with external case temp of 155 being approved for any consumer, home use.

    A lot of these are probably installed inside other machines; it getting that hot isn't any more of an issue in normal use than all the moving parts sealed away behind access panels.
