Intel Core i5 6400T benchmark
In the Cinebench R15 test, it scored 36.69 fps in OpenGL and 417cb in CPU test. This was with the DDR3 RAM. Who would have ever thought to have a 40W quad core i5 CPU with a decent GPU in such a low TDP. That’s the future and that’s what innovation must look for. In the future there won’t be place for desktop PCs as we know them.
Impact on mini PC sales
Mini PCs are growing up in sells every year and I’m sure they are going to be the next step in PCs evolution. "No one" wants a giant case with an extremely powerful CPU&GPU (with no one I mean 90% of the people who are not gamers). A low power CPU like this one, which allows you to do every task you want and still gives you the opportunity to play games acceptably in a small form factor (like NUCs) represents the biggest innovation of the last few years in desktop environment!
