Zotac Zbox OI520 Plus "Sphere" SFF PC Review

Gaming Benchmarks

For our next set of tests, we moved on to some in-game benchmarking with Left 4 Dead 2 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. When testing low-power platforms with L4D2 or ET:QW, we dialed the image quality settings down to medium quality settings and tested at various resolutions. Since these are more entry-level game tests running on relatively low-power platforms or platforms equipped with mobile parts, we left anti-aliasing turned off and image quality settings set from moderate to high levels where possible.

Testing the GPU

Like most SFF PCs, the Zotac Zbox OI520 Plus wasn’t designed to be a gaming machine, but you can see how it affords the user more than playable framerates in these older titles. It’s nothing special to write home about, and the Zbox OI520 Plus finished a bit behind some of the similarly-spec’d competition, but it’s good to see what the little sphere can handle gaming-wise.
