ZOTAC ZBox HD-ID11 and Next Gen ION

Futuremark PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage configures several different usage model scenarios to simulate different types of computing workloads including HD TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communication, and productivity.  Most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, so the tests can exploit the additional resources offered by the dual core Atom processor and Intel Hyperthreading.  Here we're comparing the Zbox to both Intel Atom netbooks based on an Intel D945GCLF motherboards, the first generation NVIDIA Ion reference platform, a popular first gen Ion/Atom netbook, the HP Mini 311 and the Asus Eee PC1201N, which is a dual-core Atom 330 and first gen Ion solution.

Simulated Standard Application Performance

In PCMark Vantage, the combination of Intel's latest generation of dual-core Atom and NVIDIA's Next Gen Ion GPU, offer simply the best general purpose computing performance we've seen from an Atom-based solution to date.  Literally, hands-down in every test the ZOTAC Zbox offered best of class performance, even finishing well ahead of the nicely appointed Asus Eee PC 1201N with its dual-core Atom and first generation Ion architecture.  With all test systems configured with both 2GB of DDR2 memory as well as 5400RPM hard drives, this speaks volumes for the Zbox, right out of the gate.
