Memory performance is right where we would expect it to be for such a system using DDR4-2133 memory. A throughput of 26GB/s makes the Beebox-S about as fast as a desktop Pentium processor in terms of memory performance.

The cache performance is also very good, and we found that the Beebox-S wasn’t very much slower than the MSI Cubi 2 Plus.
