The number of HTPC motherboards for the AMD A-series CPUs is shockingly low. Here to fill that void is Zotac with their A75-ITX motherboard. Read on to see if it has what it takes to be worthy of sitting next to your TV.

Getting started, there isn't much point going over the architecture again and what Bulldozer was meant to be about, and instead will see us jumping straight in to the tests to see if the FX-8150 can redeem itself in any way.

We have seen quite a few different Mini PC’s lately. They make great Internet surfing and media machines for home theater setups. Not that long ago we took a look at Zotac’s ZBOX HD-AD02 mini PC, which proved to be a great and very function mini PC, but was a little on the large side. Today we have the ZBOX Nano AD10, which has to be one of the best-looking and smallest mini pc’s we have looked at. I know you are going to say it so we will say it now, it looks like a Mac Mini only smaller! Inside this small design you have an AMD E350 CPU, AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 and a 320GB hard drive. Let’s check out the ZBOX Nano and see if performs as well as it looks!
