Zotac ION motherboard follow up at AnandTech

Posted on Friday, May 22 2009 @ 10:15:13 CEST by


AnandTech takes another look at the Zotac ION motherboard to answer some questions that weren't addressed in their previous test report of this motherboard. In this follow up, Anand takes a look at 720p gaming performance, Flash video playback, overclocking, cooling, power consumption and Blu-ray playback. You can check it out over here.

The gaming performance of the Zotac Ion is no good though, at 720p and low to medium quality settings the frame rate is too low for a smooth game experience. Other than that, Ion appears to be pretty decent.
For now the Ion looks like a good platform, although I do wonder what will come of it next year. Intel isn’t very happy about NVIDIA’s Apple coup and the recent attention of Ion. If Intel doesn’t enable seamless HD video playback with Pineview then NVIDIA deserves to see Ion grow into a success. Oh and Intel, if you’re listening, 8-channel LPCM audio over HDMI would be a nice plus (I’ll be extra happy if we get bitstreaming of HD audio codecs).
