Zotac Z68-ITX WiFi Review

PC Mark Vantage

With the various synthetics out of the way it’s time to look at how the system performs in tasks more akin to those it’ll undergo. Stripped of the ‘single-element’ aspects of synthetic testing the Z68-ITX WiFi performs much closer to where our vast experience would have pegged it. The reduction in memory speed has a cumulative effect upon ever action and, when coupled to the slightly reduced CPU speed, the overclocked score reflects this. Defaulting the memory to 1333MHz definitely hinders the stock result which is fairly poor by any yardstick.

PC Mark 7

The much newer PC Mark 7 is far tighter in its testing and takes much greater advantage of the parallel computing possibilities of modern processors. Showing how the Zotac isn’t easy to pin down the stock result suddenly leaps ahead of the competition and even overclocked it’s not a mile behind the nearly-as-small Gene-Z.
