7 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago is 200MHz, the fastest is 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 350MHz. The Zotac ZBOX ID86 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (640 megahertz) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Zotac Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

We calculated the average ratings for all Zotac desktop computers and also specifically for Zotac few processor core computers and found that in both cases Zotac had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

7.1 Audio Output Channel

The Zotac ZBOX ID86 has a 7.1 audio output channel which is better than most few processor core computers that came out around the same time as it. Most comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it have a 5.1 audio output channel.

This desktop computer's audio output (7.1) is actually the best audio output amongst all few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86.

A 5.1 audio output channel is the worst audio output amongst similar types of desktop computer.

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Zotac ZBOX ID86 is more than most few processor core computers that have been available for more than two years. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on personal computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Shallow

When compared to other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the ZBOX ID86 that we have checked, the ZBOX ID86's depth of only 44 millimeters is one of the shallowest. Few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 have depths of between 27mm and 460mm.

13 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At only 6.4 gigabytes per second, the ZBOX ID86 has a very slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of few processor core computers that are a similar age to the ZBOX ID86 range from 6.4GB/s to 26GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The average max internal memory supported processor of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the ZBOX ID86 is 29GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 4GB to 32GB. The Zotac ZBOX ID86 has a very small max internal memory supported processor (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

The ZBOX ID86 is a two displayssupported by on-board grap computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the ZBOX ID86 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,400MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the ZBOX ID86 has one of the slowest memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst few processor core computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Zotac ZBOX ID86 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 512 gigabytes, the ZBOX ID86 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst few processor core computers of this age. The discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of personal computers of this age and type range from 1GB to 4.1TB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of computers of this age and type is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.9GHz. At only 1.86 gigahertz, the ZBOX ID86 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the Vivo Mini UN62 (1.9GHz and higher rated), or the ROG GR8 (2GHz and higher rated) both from Asus or the Acer Revo L80 (1.9GHz and higher rated).

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

We compared this personal computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer Aspire XC600 3.3GHz 2 core Intel Core i3 8GB 1TB HDD, the Asus BT1AD, and the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the M075U (SSD), or the Chromebox M077U (SSD) both from Asus or the Shuttle DSA2LS (£148.75) (Flash) which is also higher rated.

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

When compared to other PCs that were launched around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 that we have assessed, the ZBOX ID86's memory clock speed of only 1,066 megahertz is one of the slowest. The memory clock speeds of few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The processor caches of comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 range from 0.51MB to 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. When compared to other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed the processor cache of, the ZBOX ID86's processor cache of only 1 megabyte is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

The Zotac ZBOX ID86 has one of the smallest maximum internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The maximum internal memory of computers of a similar age and type to the ZBOX ID86 range from 4GB to 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 16GB.

Chart Edit

Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards

The Zotac ZBOX ID86 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by few processor core computers that have been around for more than two years. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The ZBOX ID86 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory (only 512 megabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the ZBOX ID86 is 250MB, the biggest is 4.1GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB.
