The first Intel NUC tested is the DN2820FYK with Bay Trail Celeron N2820, 8GB RAM, 60GB OCZ SSD, and onboard graphics.

There's also the Intel NUC NUC5CPYB with Braswell Celeron N3050 with 64GB SSD and 8GB RAM.

The final NUC tested is the Intel NUC5i3RYB with Core i3 5010U Broadwell processor, HD Graphics 5500, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD.

Lastly is the beast: the CompuLab Airtop. CompuLab's Airtop remains the best-designed fanless PC we have ever tested as it's loaded with desktop-class hardware yet remains passively cooled. The Airtop is the most innovative fanless PC we have ever tested at Phoronix in 13 years. The Airtop has a Core i7 5775C Broadwell processor, 16GB RAM, 256GB ADATA SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 graphics card. Physically it's bigger than the rest, but it's real desktop hardware and all passively cooled while still having an industrial-grade metal enclosure.

Now onto some interesting benchmarks with this range of small form factor hardware. Following these Ubuntu 17.10 numbers are also some power consumption and CPU thermal numbers.
