Zotac A75-ITX WiFi review

A little motherboard with big ideas

TODO alt text

You can see from the results below the CPU component of the Llano APU is being hobbled by the motherboard itself. In both the Asus ATX and MSI mATX boards the chips perform far better at straight, traditional CPU tasks.

On the gaming side though there is no such compromise in performance; good news for the mini PC gamer.
