Zotac H67-ITX WiFi H67 Motherboard Review
Andy Ruffell / 6 years ago
Over the past couple of months, we’ve taken a look at plenty of small form factor motherboards from some big brands including Asus, Gigabyte and Jetway, and they have all been designed with an all-in-one solution in mind. This is where we saw the likes of Intel Atom and more importantly AMD Fusion take its place in the market, and quite rightly so.
Today sees us still keeping our focus on small form factor in general but taking a look at a slightly different product, that shares the same market. The Zotac H67-ITX WiFi is still aimed at the HTPC market but differs somewhat in its design compared to the boards we’ve looked at recently. We say that as instead of having a built-in style processor or APU, we see a conventional socket able to take Intel’s 2nd generation of processors which we all know as Sandybridge. Whilst we love the potential behind the i5 2500k and i7 2600k, this board would be better suited with a low-powered i3 CPU leaving it to be a perfect board to sit snuggly in a nice looking HTPC chassis below your Plasma TV.
Is it perfect for that purpose or is it all a bunch of marketing hype? We know what the benefits and potential of the H67 platform are, but can they seriously fit all of that power and features into a board of this size?
Never judge a book by its cover and all that…
