8 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Zotac PCs Have Good Reviews

Zotac medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers Zotac is one of the better rated brands.

SSD Storage Medium

The ZBOX PI320 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as 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 actually the best storage speed across all PCs of a comparable age and type to the ZBOX PI320.

Across comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

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
