ZOTAC has launched its new reasonably priced miniature PCs primarily based on Intel’s Gemini Lake platform.

ZOTAC’s ZBOX CI329 Nano is available in a black enclosure with a fairly distinctive look that includes the producer’s famend honeycomb openings that allow passive cooling of the system’s key element — the Celeron N4100 SoC (4 cores, 1.1 – 2.four GHz, four MB cache, UHD Graphics 600 with 12 EUs, 6.5 W). The chip helps H.264 and H.265 decoding and the Clear Video HD tech, making it a viable selection for multimedia fans on the lookout for a low-power system for streaming. The PC is outfitted with a DDR4 SO-DIMM slot supporting as much as eight GB modules in addition to a 2.5-inch bay with a SATA connector for an HDD or an SSD.
In the case of connectivity, the ZBOX CI329 Nano comes with an 802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 wi-fi module, two GbE controllers (notably vital for enterprises), three USB-A three.zero ports, one USB-C three.zero header, one USB-A 2.zero connector, one HDMI 2.0a output, a DisplayPort 1.four, a D-Sub port, an SD card reader, and two three.5-mm audio connectors.

ZOTAC will historically supply ZBOX CI329 Nano in three variations: the barebones taste with out reminiscence and storage, the Plus SKU with manufacturing facility put in four GB of DRAM and a 120 GB SSD, and the mannequin with pre-installed Home windows 10. ZOTAC didn’t announce pricing of the programs, however preserving in thoughts that we’re coping with an entry-level platform, MSRP of the ZBOX CI329 Nano needs to be in keeping with the SoC positioning and stay on the identical degree as pricing of the previous-gen CI327 fanless PC. We enquired the corporate about beneficial costs of the programs and can replace the story as soon as we hear again from ZOTAC.
