Zotac ZBOX ID89 Plus Mini PC Review

Total System Power Consumption

Throughout all of our benchmarking and testing, we monitored how much power our test systems consumed using a power meter. Our goal was to give you all an idea as to how much power the base platform configuration used while idling and while under a heavy workload. Please keep in mind that we were testing total system power consumption at the outlet here, not just the power being drawn by the processors alone.

Total System Power Consumption
Tested at the Outlet

Zotac's latest ZBOX system strikes a reasonable balance between performance and power consumption. At idle or when performing low level tasks, the system only pulls around 21W from the wall. Under load, it hovers around 49W, and just as remarkable is that it never gets noisy.
