ZOTAC ZBox HD-ID11 and Next Gen ION

Gaming Performance

To touch on gaming performance, we chose two games that draw moderately on system resources, Half-Life 2 Episode 2 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. We then ran a pre-recorded demo of each at a resolution of 1280x800. The resulting performance achieved is indicated in frames per second in the graph below.

Update 9/7/2010 -
In testing a newly released Zotac ZBox product, we discovered anomalies in our test data for the ZBox HD-ID11.  As such, the benchmark results above have been updated to correct errors we made in initial testing.  Commentary was also changed to reflect these latest results .
The ZOTAC Zbox offered slightly better performance in our gaming tests, versus the fastest dual-core Atom 330/first-gen Ion system we tested in Enemy Territory Quake Wars and  Half Life 2 EP2 testing.  In reality, at these high image quality settings and resolution, both of these relatively impressive looking titles were mostly playable on the Zbox though they did lag in heavy action.  Dropping down to medium graphics settings improved frame rates dramatically.
