Benchmarks: Real-World Applications

First up, we have Excel 2013, in which Brix does rather well as this application takes advantage of the i5-3337U's ability to handle four threads, whereas the Pentium G2020 is limited to half that.

The WinRAR compression test should also take advantage of the i5-3337U's extra threads, and it very well may, but if the chip is being heavily utilized its Turbo Boost feature won't overclock the processor much and that gives the Pentium G2020 a clear clock speed advantage.

When testing Photoshop CS6, the Brix's performance was roughly equal to the Pentium G2020, placing it well below the desktop Ivy Bridge processors.
