Lastly is a look at the overall CPU temperature over the course of all the benchmarks carried out for this article:

The Fitlet2 had the lowest minimum temperature of 29 degrees while the average temperature under load was 58 degrees with a peak of 72 degrees. The average temperature is right in line with the actively cooled Intel NUCs tested and also the IPC3 while the Fitlet2 boasts a lower peak temperature than that more powerful CompuLab PC.

The Fitlet2 AC system power consumption over the course of all the tests run had a minimum power draw of 4.9 Watts, an average of 12.4 Watts, and a peak of 17.9 Watts when engaging the HD Graphics 500. It's a remarkable difference when looking at the once popular ASRock net-tops with the older Arrandale Core i3 processors consuming multiple times more power.

Overall the CompuLab Fitlet2 is a very capable Linux-friendly system for those needing a very compact system that's built extremely well, passively-cooled, and can stand up to many different industrial applications. The Fitlet2 barebone pricing with an Atom x7-E3950 begins at $199 USD on Amazon while more information on this CompuLab PC is available from

If you want to see how your own Linux PC performance compares to the systems tested in this article, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1803094-FO-FITLET2CO19.
