Intel Broadwell NUC NUC5i7RYH With Iris Graphics Mini-PC Review

General Purpose Benchmarks - PCMark, Lame and SunSpider

In this next series of tests, we have some mostly CPU-intensive workloads with a bit of storage subsystem testing as well.
Futuremark PCMark 7
Trace-based Workload Testing
Futuremark's PCMark 7 is a whole-system benchmarking suite. It has updated application performance measurements targeted for a Windows 7 and 8 environments and uses various metrics to gauge relative performance. We report the overall PCMark score below.

The Intel NUC5i7RYH performed very well here. The combination of fast CPU, relatively powerful graphics, and high-performance M.2-based storage allow the system to creep up on the Ivy Bridge-based desktop rig.

Lame Audio Encoding, SunSpider Javascript Processing
Standard Compute and Multimedia Workloads 

The NUC5i7RYH finishes near the head of the pack again in our custom LAME test and the Sunspider benchmarks. It's relatively high turbo frequencies give it a nice boost here.
