How is it tested?
The specification of the Liva Z Plus are as follows:
- CPU: Core i5-7300U SoC (Turbo enabled)
- RAM: 4GB Transcend 2333 MHz SO-DIMM DDR4 RAM
- STORAGE: 128GB M.2 SSD
Since this UCFF PC system has a very specific use, I have used the following benchmarks:
- Futuremark Benchmarks: PCMark 10, PCMark 8
- X265 1080p Encoding Benchmark
- AIDA64 Memory Benchmark
- AS SSD Benchmark
- Power Consumption Test
X265 Encoding Benchmark
AIDA64 Memory Benchmark
The main issue is that the LIVA Z Plus was running in its default JEDEC specification. The BIOS does not have any way to change the timings and frequency of the RAM manually, nor it has an option to select the XMP profile.
AS SSD Benchmark
Power Consumption Test
Even on load, the power consumption is comfortably low at 40 watts.
