All of these nettops come equipped with gigabit Ethernet controllers and Wi-Fi, so we used SiSoft Sandra’s networking benchmark to see how they compare.
As far as wired networking goes, ASRock's first-place finish is followed by Giada's i50 and Zotac's Zbox. Arctic’s MC001-BD has a little trouble keeping up.
When wireless networking is tested all of these solutions perform closely, although the ASRock system doesn't perform as well as its contemporaries.
Unlike bandwidth, when it comes to latency, less is better.
