But let’s take a look at some actual tests to se the mini PC in action, so you can judge its power and potential by yourself.
Let’s start with the CPU-Z to see all the detailed information about the processor. The i3-1005G1 adopts the latest 10nm technologz, has turbo frequency 3.4GHz, and is a dual-core four threads unit . It’s final result is :
Single Thread: 421.3, Multi Thread: 1166.4.
Geekbench 5 & Cinebench R20
Then, we use the professional testing software Geekbench 5 and Cinebench R20 for more comprehensive testing.
Geekbench 5：Single-Core 1148, Multi-Core 2596
Cinebench R20：CPU 339，CPU Single 482
Compared to the previous 8th Gen i3-8130U processor, the performance improvement for i3-1005G1 is significant. It manages to reach double score both in the case of a single and multiple core tests.
AS SSD Benchmark
And finally some disk tests. CoreBox Pro uses a 256GB NVMe SSD this time, making it much faster than the SATA SSD option. And sure enough, the final test result confirms that – Read : 1483.81MB/s, Write : 1239.62MB/s. So you will be getting not just faster loading and computer reaction, but also massive improvement with the large file copy speed or their handling.
Judging by the test results it’s pretty clear, that CHUWI CoreBox Pro can really fully substitute a full fledged desktop PC. And with the Thunderbolt 3 port you can even hook it up to some external eGPU dock for gaming. It will be hitting the market on October 20th through CHUWI’s official website with a surprisingly good price.
