eBox 3310MX applications:
The eBox line of products is suitable for Vertical Applications (Kiosk, POS,
Thin Client) as well as SoHo applications such as Internet device, compact PC,
Home Server, etc.
With its flexible IO (4x USB ports) and support for 2.5" HDD the eBox 3310MX is a versatile device offering an
excellent price/performance relation.
The improvements made to the Vortex86MX+ - in particular the 32 bit memory
bus -, 1GB DDR2 RAM and the support for SATA HDD make the 3310MX an appealing
proposal for applications where more processing power is required.
In practice it can perform up to 2x faster than
up to 4x faster than Roboard 100. (refer to
DMP comparison benchmarks)

- Performance Tips:
- If using the SD card as the HDD, use Class 6 or Class 10 Full Size SD
EWF can also be enabled on Windows XP for improved performance.
- To unleash maximum performance we recommend installing 2.5" SATA HDD* which offers a
very significant performance boost.
