Gone are the days when having a gaming desktop means having around a rugged and less space efficient device to do intensive computing. Zotac has just unveiled its own version of a gaming computer but with major consideration to saving space but not compromising on the needed horsepower—the Zbox Magnus EN1070K.
Revealed from the recently-held Consumer Electronics Show 2017, the Magnus EN1070K is Zotac’s latest entry in the E-series, which are the smaller, more compact versions of an average desktop.
Measuring only 8.27 x 7.9 inches, this miniature desktop computer is only some bits bigger than the Mac Mini, Apple’s version of the tiny desktop running on its own flagship OS.
Little in comparison it may be than the traditional desktop size, the Zbox Magnus EN1070K packs a serious computing firepower thanks to its cutting-edge hardware. Namely, the current-gen (7th generation) Intel Core i5 processor (Kaby Lake architecture), an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics processing unit, expandable RAM of up to 32 Gb, in addition to two storage types, SSD and HDD.
Not letting go of older technologies while also hugging on the new, this latest Zotac miniature desktop computer sports an assortment of USB ports that come in two’s—USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and USB 3.1 Type-A—in addition to duos of Ethernet ports, HDMI, DisplayPorts, and a single card slot.
Although Zotac has not yet officially announced how much this tiny but powerful piece of device will cost, early estimates say that the Zbox Magnus EN1070K will be somewhere around $1,500.
