With the Gcrypt CPU benchmark, the Z3735F was slower than the rest of the pact with the exception of the Utilite with i.MX6 quad-core A9. The Jetson TK1 from NVIDIA ended up being measurably faster than the Compute Stick but unfortunately there's no power consumption results to share today.

With John The Ripper's Blowfish encryption test, the Compute Stick ended up being more than twice as fast as the i.MX6 quad-core and quad-core Tegra K1.

With the Hiemno performance benchmark, the Z3735F was multiple times faster than the tested ARMv7 hardware albeit hardware like the Broadwell Core i3 NUC are still multiple times faster than this low-power HDMI stick computer.
