Zotac AMP Box Mini Review

Test Rig

For our tests, we used our latest test rig which is comprised of an ASRock Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac Motherboard, along with an Intel Core i7-8700K at default clock speed of 3.7GHz, as well as 8GB of G.Skill Trident-Z DDR4-3200 ram in dual channel mode.

All tests were conducted at default clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.

PSU Thermaltake Toughpower DSP G RGB 750W
VGA card Intel HD Graphics 630
Drivers Standard Intel drivers
OS Windows 10

 

Unfortunately, we were unable to fully test the Thunderbolt 3 and video performance of the Zotac AMP Box Mini fitted with a GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) graphics card. My PC system sees the graphics card, but fails to establish it as a primary graphics card. Apparently, having the Zotac AMP Box Mini as an external GPU is best configured and run on MacOS/MacBooks.

In the end, we chose to test Thunderbolt 3 performance by using the Asus Hyper M.2 x16 Card installed with a Patriot Hellfire M.2 PCIE SSD … it’s now become an external SSD storage device.

 

Performance

I’ll let all the number do the talking …
