10 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 2 gigabytes, the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were released around the same time as the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of computers of this type and age is 1GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB.

Chart Edit

11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We checked 1,168 expert and owner reviews for Zotac PCs and found that on average Zotac has good ratings. We also found that Zotac has good ratings specifically within its few processor core computers range.

SSD Storage Medium

The Zotac ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers of a similar age and type to it. Most few processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it have an HDD storage medium. 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 in fact the best storage speed across all few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of PC.

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as it. Most desktop computers of this age and spec have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This desktop computer's internal memory type (DDR3L-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type across all personal computers that were launched around the same time as the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type across comparable types of desktop computer.

Supports Three Compatible Memory Cards

The number of compatible memory card supported by the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus is more than most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by personal computers of this age and type. The compatible memory cards "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this computer.

Chart Edit

Four Processor Threads

Most of the other few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus only have between one and three processor threads, however the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has four processor threads.

Chart Edit

Narrow

PCs of a similar type and age to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus have widths of between 3.4mm and 390mm. With a width of only 127 millimeters, the Zotac ZBOX CI520 nano Plus is quite narrow compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Shallow

Computers of a comparable spec and age to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus have depths of between 27mm and 460mm. The Zotac ZBOX CI520 nano Plus is quite shallow (only 45 millimeters) compared to most of the other computers that were released more than two years ago.

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

PCs that have been available for more than two years have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. When compared to other desktop computers that are a comparable age to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus that we have checked the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of, the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 850 megahertz is one of the slowest.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 16 gigabytes, the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst few processor core computers of this age. The max internal memory supported processors of few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus range from 4GB to 32GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 29GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Zotac ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of personal computers of this age and type is 200MHz and the fastest is 800MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

PCs of a comparable age and type to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 560GB. The ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 1.5 gigahertz, the ZBOX CI520 nano Plus has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. Across all the personal computers that were released more than two years ago the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3.9GHz.

Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Zotac ZBOX-OI520-P-BE (1.6GHz) which also has a higher rating.
