SiSoft Sandra, PCMark and Atto allow us to see how a system performs in a set of synthetic tests which ensure repeatable comparisons across a wide range of products.
We start the performance section of this review with a look at some of the key system performance aspects of the ZBOX and the first two results, PCMark and 3DMark allow you to compare this system to your own by running the same tests.
Looking at the more specific tests we see a set of figures for memory and SATA which show the ZOTAC system to perform at similar levels to the AMD based Edge. ZOTAC do lead on memory but Sapphire edge ahead on drive speed… no doubt down to their model being slightly higher spec.
Wi-Fi performance is also decent, for an entry level card, from the ZBOX and both systems compare well again on USB 3.0 speed.
Zotac have been through many evolutions of their Zbox, starting with the original model around 5 years ago and bringing things into a new, orb style chassis more recently. Today we take a look at a Zbox which has familiar styling but brings the internals into the latest generation by using the...
