Zotac Z68-ITX Wi-Fi review

Intel's top Sandy Bridge chipset shrinks for this mini ITX motherboard

TODO alt text

We equipped the Zotac Z68-ITX Wi-Fi with all the necessary tools to rip through a few standard benchmarks, including an Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7-2600S and 4GB of 2000MHz DDR3 memory.

We use the same standard three tests that push all cores and hyperthreading suitably to the limit, with processing, encoding and gaming.
