Zotac Boxes - Small and Smaller

Print

HardwareHeaven has a look at the Zotac ZBOX Blu-Ray AD05 Plus Mini PC and gives it a full review.  This little box packs in an AMD E-450 APU that includes Radeon 6320 series graphics - making this one capable little machine.  Take a look and find out more.

If that unit is a little big, and you want something without an optical drive that you could probably put in your pocket, check out the Zotac ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus.  This thing is a little larger than a hockey puck and it's a full-blown PC running pretty much the same hardware as the much larger AD05 above.  

Looking first at APU temperatures the ZBOX Nano comes surprisingly close to the AD05 with only a few degrees separating the two at load. No drive temperatures are present for the new system as the SSD does not support that reading but system temperatures are very good with power use also showing a drop over the AD05, no doubt down to slightly fewer components such as the lack of optical drive.
