ECS LIVA X Mini PC Review


ECS LIVA X Mini PC Testing:

Testing the LIVA X was interesting – 3DMark was used primarily. Default settings were ran for Sky Diver, Cloud Gate, Ice Storm, and Ice Storm Extreme. The LIVA X scored 517 in Sky Diver, 1198 in Cloud Gate, 14200 in Ice Storm, and 9598 in Ice Storm Extreme. Gaming performance is virtually nonexistent except on mobile-platform games. I was able to play games that you would find for your tablet or cell phone without issue. Anything more will have to be played on minimum settings, if you are lucky or the game is older it will work. Using this PC as an emulator with older games would also work just fine.













The eMMC memory performed decently, not as good as a dedicated SSD of course, but not too shabby. Boot time was very fast, around 17 seconds. I was able to play Sid Meier's Civilization V with low settings, partially thanks to the turn-based game play. I wouldn't recommend multiplayer FPS games where lag spikes mean certain death. It is unfortunate that Intel didn't leave Bay Trail-M with a little more video power such as six execution units instead of four. Nonetheless, this processor handled streaming data just fine and was overall surprisingly fast in Windows 8.1 – as long as nothing was too GPU-intensive.
