Zotac is a Hong Kong based manufacturer specializing in graphics cards and motherboards. It is perhaps most known for mini-ITX motherboards, a niche that it has been trying to fill with vigor, mostly by undercutting the competition. The AMD based GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi for example, is significantly cheaper than competitive products from rival Jetway. On the Intel side, Zotac offer a slew of affordable GeForce 7 based mini-ITX boards that are tempting low budget alternatives to Intel offerings such as the DG45FC.


The box.

The Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi is far from a cut-down, budget product designed to grab low-end market share. It is not just their flagship product, it is probably the flagship product for the mini-ITX market as a whole. This is the board that small form factor enthusiasts have been waiting for — a mini-ITX motherboard with full support for Core 2 processors (including high TDP quad cores), good quality integrated graphics, a full-size PCI Express expansion slot, and wireless connectivity. On paper, the board has no rivals.

About our only quibble is that there are only two SATA ports; the Intel DG45FC provides four.
