CompuLab's Fitlet Is A Very Tiny, Fanless, Linux PC With AMD A10 Micro

Besides running the Fitlet-I against those several other dozen Linux systems, I did a smaller comparison focused on low-power systems while they were running Ubuntu. Most of the systems were running Ubuntu 15.04 except for the ARM constraints that put the Jetson TK1 and Utilite on an older version. These results were carried over from the recent Intel Compute Stick Linux review.

The Radeon R6 Graphics of the A10 Micro-6700T aren't really meant for gaming, but I did run a few OpenGL benchmarks. The Fitlet-I was faster than the Bay Trail graphics on the Celeron N2820 NUC as well as the Bay Trail based Intel Compute stich with Atom Z3735F. However, the Broadwell graphics of the low-end Core i3 5010U NUC were about twice as fast.

Xonotic with low image quality settings at 1080p was actually a playable experience on the Fitlet-I. All of this testing was with the open-source RadeonSI graphics driver too! Catalyst on Ubuntu 15.04 was running into issues with the Radeon R6 Graphics.
