The latest updates promise to improve single thread performance in those tests that have a separate score for such things, so we look forward to discovering how the Impact fares.

Despite being a curious size between a full ATX and a ITX, but not an mATX, the Impact pushes out some impressive scores on our demanding Ryzen 9 3900X with 4.37 GHz across the 24 threads. If you want to commit to higher memory speeds instead of CPU ones then the Impact is equally capable with support for 4600 MHz DDR4.
