    Phoronix: Linux Benchmarks Of Intel's Atom Z3735F On The Compute Stick

    The Atom Z3735F is what powers Intel's Compute Stick. The Z373F has a Scenario Design Power of just 2.2 Watts while being a quad-core 64-bit processor with a clock speed of 1.33GHz and a burst frequency of 1.83GHz. This low-power Atom SoC also has Intel HD Graphics that work fine under Linux. In this article are some early test data from the Intel Compute Stick with Ubuntu Linux...

    Interesting when you compare it to raspberry pi benchmarks:

      Lame is single core benchmark, that is 900MHz armv7 vs 1830MHz x86_64.

      That said If that intel CPU is downclocked to 900MHz, i guess you will hardly see a difference there.

        Michael, you are benchmarking the $150 model with 2 GB RAM / 32 GB flash memory, which is only available with Windows.

        It would be nice if you called out Intel's decision that Linux users who want to avoid paying the Microsoft tax get only 1 GB RAM / 8 GB flash memory.

        Edit: I see that you mentioned it in the older article. Nevermind then

          I find this claim highly suspect when building a kernel on my Athlon 7750X2 takes 80min.

            Your 80 minute is probably distro kernel compile time i guess. Phoronix kernel benchmark is not that, it has much tiny config.

            I guess your 95W CPU is right on par with this 2W CPU for this benchmark task... but of course there are also 6 years in between .

              This is the lowest end Intel processor I have access to. IMO that little stick didn't do too bad.

                At 1080p with low quality settings, Xonotic runs around 30 FPS... But the higher visuals will immediately bang up the system.
                Out of VRAM i guess... what is max for that one, 512MB or something less?

                  Only 64MB for Intel hardware, but it's system RAM anyway so the driver handle it instead. If an app needs more the driver makes sure it has it.

                    Well amount of VRAM the GPU uses is determined by the CPU not the operating systems, that is what i ask... so there must be some limitation max in bios or if not someone should know max.
