Zbox AD03 Blu-ray HTPC

Posted by Unknown On 0 comments

Zbox AD03 Blu-ray HTPC gets review and it’s a Xotac Fusion based Blu-ray HTPC.AMD has once again begun aggressively talking up Fusion and showing off a number of Fusion-based products and AMD E-350 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 and Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray AD03 Plus are two very different products…….



Zotac was champing at the bit to be one of the first and its Zbox AD03 / AD03 Plus has just hit the test bench over at Hot Hardware. All told, the results were fairly predictable with the Fusion APU running laps around the prior Atom-based version. Zacate E-350 managed to hold its own, with the only real issue being lackluster Flash video acceleration.The AD03 Plus (ringing up at $529.99) seems like a worse deal with its skimpy 2GB of RAM and (comparatively sluggish) 250GB HDD, while the barebones AD03 (which lists for $439.99) could be turned into quite the powerhouse with 4GB of memory and a speedy SSD.

Although they are based on the same AMD E-350 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 and Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray AD03 Plus are two very different products. The Gigabyte E350N-USB3 is a mini-ITX mobo featuring an E-350 APU targeting the DIY crowd, while the Zotac Zbox is a sleek, highly-integrated, full-featured HTPC. Let’s take a look at the new ZBox first and then we’ll evaluate performance to see how these retail-ready AMD E-350 APU-based products fare against some competing low-power platforms and AMD’s own reference system.
