Zotac is not the most well-known name, but they are an up and coming motherboard and graphics card manufacturer. They are one of the few companies that are producing mini-ITX motherboards — for both Intel and AMD platforms. Today we're looking at the Zotac GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi, an AMD mini-ITX motherboard based — you guessed it — on the GeForce 8200 chipset. Our previous experience with the GeForce 8300 chipset was pleasant, so it sounds like a good match on paper.

The only other Zotac product we've reviewed, the NF610i-ITX (LGA775 mini-ITX motherboard), did little to further the Zotac name. It was very affordable and did the basics well, but it was a sloppy implementation with many problems and omissions. Let's hope this one doesn't follow suit.

Zotac's Halloween color scheme this time around is fused with a bit of nVidia green, giving the box a very nice futuristic Borg-like look.

The board ships with a DVI to HDMI adapter and WiFi adapter.
