Now it is powered by the new Pentium in 4200. It has 4 gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabyte SSD and the velvet. You can see this thing is very small, fits in the palm of my hand, so let's start out with a look at the design so long, the front of it there's, just a simple status LED and power on button and the build has all the ports at The rear so we've got 3 USB 3 ports there. Now, these all power external hard drives no problems with that many HDMI out and audio jack for audio out, of course, and then a micro SD card slot, LAN, port and DC n to power it witches 12 volts, 3 amps. So on the bottom here, four rubber feet: if you want to get access to the internals, you need to remove these they're stuck on and you can access the screws then and open that up upgrade the RAM or SSD. If you wish to do so now, if you want to see how to open it up and what the internals look like check out my unboxing video, there should be a tiny eye popping up right now in the video, and that would give you access to that. So here's the intake vent and then the exit along the top there is where the warm air comes out. So, instead of the built in wireless AC, I was led to believe it had. That is what was in the box floating around that I almost missed certain.
Seeing a wireless and USB dongle and as you'll see the speeds of this aren't really that good, neither is the range, so you have to give up one of those USB 3 ports in order to have Wireless, which really is not good at all so boot time Off the vo v, 1 is approximately 40 seconds, it's not super fast or anything like that, but it's adequate. It does have an SSD in there, so it is faster than those cheaper mini pcs that have the e MMC drives on there. So I wanted to show you now: does the device manager very quickly just to point out a couple of things in here? So you see their processor King TM Squad core and have to be the disk drives on board. So Windows is installed and runs off. The 4c 128 gigabyte SSD I'll show you the performance of that in just a minute, and this right here, the Samsung you see is a 32 gigabyte to eat. Mmm mmm see now that's a slower drive. It has approximately 100 reads, hundred megabytes per second reads, and around 60 megabytes per second writes a lot slower than SSD. It only has drivers contained on it that they put on there vo now under here network adapters. All we have is a Gigabit Ethernet port Realtek branded. Now I did run some benchmarks here, which I will show. You first is the Cinebench school that I got now. This is definitely not breaking any records.
You can see there opengl score and the CPU score, but I think it's adequate and sufficient for the type of chipset. This is and here's the speeds from the included Wireless in adapter, so not the greatest, while it's in only ok kind of speeds. But what is very poor out of this adapter is the range of it it's, not good at all. I do not recommend using it just know, I went say, throw it in the rubbish bin, but buy yourself a decent adapter with an external antenna, and here is the LAN port and very good speeds here. That is the fastest. My fiber optic line can get. I have a 300 megabit per second line and you can see it's actually exceeding that so very good speeds there no problems and the pass mark rating. This is the newer test, so the performance test – 9 there's the score again it's an alright score for the type of chipset and lastly, I wanted to show you right here is Geekbench. For now, the single core score here is a lot better than an atom. Cherry trail, x7, the fastest ones, beats that by far, but it is still slower than a core M CPU like the 5 y 10. So this is the 128 gigabyte SSD has mentioned before. Read speeds are good, but not the 4k random reads: that's. Actually, quite bad sex is not really that good, but 70 random writes for gate is good and for the guy, in the comments asking me to run and to to the benchmark here, it is the score of 130 1000.
So first I wanted to show you 4k streaming by YouTube here in Chrome, because Chrome with the Adam x5 s and the X sevens, the cherry trails had a lot of problems. It would have a lot of stutter in it. Wouldn'T actually be smooth, so let's see here if it will be I've enabled these stats there, and you can see that it's still the same case here, of dropping frames and being a little bit choppy. So chrome is not the browser you want to be using when streaming 4k here, if you use edge, it's, perfect it's, flawless, there's no drop frames at all there. Now, apart from streaming 4k videos, everything else in Chrome seems to work. Fine I'll just load up tick tablets, comm here that I haven't actually cached or loaded this before so let's, see how fast it takes to render the page and that you see didn't take long at all. Now this scrolling is very smooth, I would say, it's not quite as smooth as edge. I have a few videos here with various different bit rates. Some of them really high up to 250 megabits per second. This is an MKV file. Let'S see if I can play these so that one you can see is working just find that as fluid it's smooth so 100 megabits per second – and here we have a 181. This is a 4k file. Now there is some stutter there that's tin bit, but it seems the stutter is only in the beginning and now it is smooth and, lastly, the highest bitrate one here.
That is choppy not really too good, but again it's actually become smooth it's, just the start of it. It seems to be choppy now on to gaming just going to test out a few titles. First, up is rise of the Tomb Raider and, as expected, there's no way that this game is going to be playable here you need a dedicated GPU for this kind of game. So this title here is: do it sorry I'm running on the lower settings lowest resolution? As well and it looks like it's going to be just playable, but that frame rates not really wonderful, not bad, considering this is just a successor to the atom cherry trail right now, League of Legends running in 1080p on the lowest visual settings. Here you can see we're getting good frame rates around 50 frames per second. This is just a game against two other BOTS and another bottom, my own team, so it's not really super demanding here, but I can definitely say that even an online game a lot. So you should be getting the whole time over 30 frames per second, you can even probably tweak out those visuals to around the medium level they're in 1080p, so good performance here with this game. So here is Counter Strike global Offensive, running very low settings here. So I'm running it just at 800, x, 600 and we'll see what kind of framerate be getting and is looking like, it's going to be playable around 40 frames per second and yes, I absolutely suck at this game and it's something wrong with my mouse you're.
Not actually letting me shoot for some reason, so this title here is ashphalt. Extreme Windows Store game running in the default settings 1080p. You can see there's a bit of study here and there, but it is label at least so here are the maximun temperatures. It got up to just during the time I was gaming here, so 74 degrees. I have seen it get up to 80, but it hasn't ever triggered thermal throttling so that little fan is doing its job there, preventing thermal throttling, preventing the performance from being reduced due to temperatures alright, so just to wrap up the video now just to go through. My pros, I think the performance is actually quite acceptable, really good, a definite step up from the last generation, Adam teary trails like the x7. It is definitely faster there, which is a really nice improvement with the GPU too. So you can play some popular titles with at least playable frame rates, now it's, not a gaming device. But if you wanted to play and know the title on the side, if you wanted to play some counter strike, orbital eagle agents or something lower those settings and it will actually still be playable there upgrade ability is another Pro for this device. You can open it up. You can put double the RAM eight gigabytes maximum and also put up to 512 gigabytes in there for your SSD. Now the cons it makes a little bit noise because it's got a fan in there now, it's, not always on.
So if you just drink something basic like internet surfing, it shouldn't come on, but now then sometimes it does cycle on and off. But if you're pushing it hard gaming, you always hear that fan and the other con is Wireless it's, not built in, as I was led to believe from the press, material and the images that voyer released. It was, I think, originally going to have wireless AC built into it, but a last minute decision calls them to just include a cheap dongle let's only wireless in and the performance out of that wasn't. Really that great and of course you have to give up a USB 3 port there.
