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.

    With the system running that hot, I would've liked to have seen temperatures for the other components, notable the SSD. I don't think SSDs are designed to run as hot and as long as CPUs/GPUs are. Same with the RAM.

    That'd definitely be nice, but I don't think it'd be much of a problem; RAM has a high thermal tolerance these days, and the SSD is pretty far away. I'd be much more worried about an mSATA drive and WiFi mPCIe card, though, and I'm kind of puzzled why those options weren't explored.

    Well looking at the external temperatures of the case, it looks like some areas are hitting 70 degrees Celsius, which is above the working temperature for many SSDs I believe, which are rated for 60 degrees. generally? But not to mention every component in there is likely baking at around 70 C, I'd like to see an analysis on the actual temperatures inside there and the impact this would have on longevity.

    Still waiting for one with eSATA output. Seriously.

    Pretty sure Habey would be ready to do a custom back panel for you if it is required in volume (for a price, of course). There are plenty of spare SATA ports on the motherboard.

    He could just cut a hole for one or two- where's your Dremel and sense of adventure?!?

    Would be interesting to see what could be done with an ATX-sized case acting as a heatsink. There would be a *lot* of surface area to dissipate the heat..

    Zalman did one a few years back. Very heavy and expensive but worked

    You can take a look at our Streacom FC10 review (linked in the article). It performs well and obviously better than this one because of its size.

    It sounds like this would be a perfect unit to put in a car behind the dash as a media hub for the Kiddo's. How is therice compared to a do it yourself non dust proof box?
