3DMark06


The Intel DC3217IYE NUC features HD4000 graphics. This solution allows the unit to push almost as many pixels across the screen as the AMD Radeon HD7600G-based Sapphire VS8, which should allow for casual gaming on the big screen.

Power Consumption


The NUC tends to consume slightly more power in standby, but does manage to be quite efficient while sitting around without being used.


This changes, however, when looking at the numbers at load. These show the NUC break the 40W barrier. While this may look bad, the performance / power consumption ratio is still excellent, and the unit just sips a little under 20W when watching a 1080P clip on the TV.

Temperature


When pushing the NUC, it does actually get quite warm to the touch, and the fan can clearly be heard. Taking the temperatures shows why as the i3 and QS77 chips churn out quite the heat when pushed hard. These temperatures may seem high but at no point did the DC3217IYE falter during our testing.

CPU Utilization - 1080P Movie


With just below 20 watts of power usage during movie playback, the CPU utilization paints a similar picture. Just a 16% load during such a task leaves plenty of horse power for other things--all while enjoying the latest show from the comforts of your couch.
