Gigabyte Brix Pro GB-BXi7-4770R Ultra Compact Barebones System Review

Sleeping Dogs


Sleeping Dogs is a 2012 open world action-adventure game based around Wei Shen; a Chinese-American police officer going undercover. The game utilises DirectX 11 features as well as high quality intensive reflections and high-resolutions textures.

Whilst watching this benchmark run, our standard settings actually looked fairly reasonable and during some of the benchmark scenes the image was fairly smooth. Obviously there are scenes where it is throttled back but overall the Brix Pro isn’t that bad.

The high res textures are part of the reason why the standard settings are a struggle for the Iris GPU and as soon as these are disabled there is a notable difference in the performance. Reducing the preset down to the normal is required though to bring the overall performance up to an acceptable level.
