Gigabyte BRIX i7A-7500 (Kaby Lake) Barebones Review

3DMark Fire Strike

To first test the integrated Intel HD Graphics 620, I ran 3DMark Fire Strike.



More in keeping with what we would expect from integrated graphics, a score of 1061 is not overly impressive. However, it is over 400 points faster than the last-gen Intel HD Graphics 515 from the Dell Latitude 7370.

Tomb Raider

Lastly, to see how the BRIX gets on with a less-demanding game, I ran Tomb Raider (2013), at 1080p using the ‘low’ image-quality preset.

Here, the integrated graphics actually do OK. Admittedly, it is only using low settings – and clearly, we must stress the BRIX i7A-7500 is not for proper, high-end gaming. However, for casual Minecraft or Rocket League gamers who do not mind tweaking a few settings, this could do a job. That being said, we must re-iterate the BRIX is in no way, shape or form designed for proper full-fat gaming.
