8 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Zotac Has Good Computer Reviews

Zotac has good average ratings for its medium processor core PCs as well as across its entire PC range compared to other brands.

SSD Storage Medium

The ZBOX PI320 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most PCs of this spec and age. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago.

The worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer is HDD.

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The ZBOX PI320 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago. This Zotac desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The internal memory type of all medium processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ZBOX PI320 ranges from DDR3-SDRAM (worst) to DDR4-SDRAM (best).

Chart Edit

Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards

The number of compatible memory card supported by the Zotac ZBOX PI320 is more than most desktop computers that have been available for more than two years. This Zotac desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the ZBOX PI320. The compatible memory cards "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this personal computer.

One of the few MOBOs for 2011 3 that has decent audio, hassle free bios update, support for Quad SLI AND newest m.2 drive that can support gen 3 speeds
This board can boot off the M.2 pretty easily, no need to go through crazy set ups in bios. Just need a bios update and a UEFI Ver. of Windows
