Zotac Zbox IQ01 Plus review

 

Zotac's latest miracle of miniaturisation contains a proper quad-core Intel processor - but can it take on the consoles for living room dominance?

Well designed ; A proper processor ; Awesome for media

Not much of a games machine ; Rather pricey

We love the idea of getting a desktop level of power out of a tiny PC, but the IQ01 isn’t quite the petite powerhouse we were hoping for

Zotac Zbox IQ01 Plus review

 

This mini PC is powerful and easy to upgrade, giving you desktop PC power in a tiny chassis

The Zotac ZBox IQ01 Plus is a superb mini PC. It may be bigger than the competition, but there's no denying its power or sheer value. If you don't mind installing an operating system yourself, it's a great buy.

Zotac ZBOX IQ01 Mini-PC - Quad-core in a Shoebox

 

The Zotac ZBOX IQ01 Mini-PC is unusual in that it sports a powerful quad-core Core i7 processor. Is this the Mini-PC to rule all other Mini-PCs? We put it through our benchmarks to find out.

Powerful quad-core processor ; Support for mSATA & SATA drives ; Wireless-AC support ; Good connectivity options ; 4K support via DisplayPorts

Expensive ; Weak graphics performance

If we were to look at the results of our benchmarks, the Zotac ZBOX IQ01 is clearly one powerful Mini-PC. Thanks to the power of its quad-core Core i7-4770T processor, it was significantly faster than the

ZOTAC ZBOX-IQ01-PLUS

 

very powerful, very small, but not too small which would cause overheating problem (some i7-4770R products), 8GB ram + mSATA SSD will give you satisfied performance

no hdmi out (but an adaptor is supplied), not the cheapest solution for similar performance

Powerful, silent. Supports multiple monitors - at least 3, using DVI and 2 DP ports. Can use RAID 0 or 1 with the 2.5" SATA bay and msata card slot.

No manual/guidelines on setting up RAID Only 4 USB ports

Really compact. Makes barely any sound. Mounted easily on VESA mount at back of monitor. Very fast. Reasonably easy to open up and fit RAM and HDD I put in an SSD to take advantage of full speed so recommend to do same. Integrated drivers USB given to...

When adding extra cost of operating system, hard drive and RAM, the cost ramps up a bit. If you mount to the back of a monitor with VESA as I have, it may heat up if used for long hours, so be careful of this.
