6 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most frequently supported processor operating modes on few processor cores computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the ZBOX ID86 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencys of between 200MHz and 800MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 350MHz. The ZBOX ID86 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency (640 megahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the ZBOX ID86.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We checked 489 expert and user reviews for Zotac computers and found that on average Zotac has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Zotac has good reviews specifically within its few processor cores computers range.

7.1 Audio Output Channels

The ZBOX ID86 has a 7.1 audio output channels which is better than most few processor cores computers that were launched more than two years ago. Most personal computers of this age and type have a 5.1 audio output channels.

This personal computer's audio output (7.1) is in fact the best audio output amongst all few processor cores computers that have been around for more than two years.

A 5.1 audio output channels is the worst audio output amongst similar types of personal computer.

11 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Bandwidth Supported by Processor (max)

When compared to other PCs of a similar age and type to the ZBOX ID86 that we have assessed the memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of, the Zotac ZBOX ID86's memory bandwidth supported by processor (max) of only 6.4 gigabytes per second is one of the slowest. Across all the comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the ZBOX ID86 the memory bandwidth supported by processor (max)s range from 6.4GB/s to 26GB/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

When compared to other PCs of this age and type that we have assessed, the maximum internal memory supported by processor of the ZBOX ID86 of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of few processor cores computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 is 4GB and the biggest is 32GB.

Chart Edit

Only Two Number of Displays Supported (on-Board Graphics)s

The ZBOX ID86 is a two number of displays supported (on-board graphics) PC.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

Across all the few processor cores computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,400MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,300MHz. When compared to other similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 that we have checked, the memory clock speeds supported by processor of the ZBOX ID86 of only 800 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 512 gigabytes, the Zotac ZBOX ID86 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memorys amongst few processor cores computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs of a similar spec and age to the ZBOX ID86 is 1GB, the biggest is 4.1TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.5TB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of only 1.86 gigahertz, the ZBOX ID86 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst personal computers of this age. The average processor frequency of computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 is 2.8GHz.

If this desktop computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Vivo Mini UN62[pl_2835114_price] (1.9GHz), or the Vivo Mini UN62[pl_2865311_price] (1.9GHz) both from Asus or the Intel NUC5i3RYK[plb_2696948_price] (2.1GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Only HDD Storage Media

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage media on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. 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 all the other HDD PCs to this PC and we think the Acer Aspire XC600 3.3GHz 2 core Intel Core i3 8GB 1TB HDD[plb_1495071_price], the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014[plb_2527453_price], and the Fujitsu Q520[plb_2501213_price] which has better reviews 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 HP Chromebox[plb_2319734_price] (SSD and higher rated), the Asus Chromebox M077U[plb_2636249_price] (SSD and higher rated), or the Shuttle DSA2LS[plb_2420911_price] (Flash and higher rated).

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

When compared to other computers of a similar age and type to the ZBOX ID86 that we have checked, the memory clock speed of the Zotac ZBOX ID86 of only 1,066 megahertz is one of the slowest. Few processor cores computers that were released more than two years ago have memory clock speeds of between 800MHz and 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

With a processor cache of only 1 megabyte, the ZBOX ID86 has one of the smallest processor caches amongst PCs of this age. Comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 6MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of the Zotac ZBOX ID86 of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the ZBOX ID86. The average maximum internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ZBOX ID86 is 16GB.

Chart Edit

Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cardss

The number of compatible memory card supported by the Zotac ZBOX ID86 is more than most few processor cores computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory cards, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory cards supported by desktop computers of this age and type. The compatible memory cardss "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this Zotac computer.
