Zotac ZBOX EN760 Mini PC For Gamers Rocks An Intel Haswell CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M GPU

Leave it to Zotac to build a mini-PC designed for gamers. Zotac lives and breathes pint-sized PCs, and thanks to an era where the hardware is generally outpacing the software, Zotac was able to build a pretty impressive gaming system within the popular ZBOX mold. Specifically, Zotac's new ZBOX EN760 comes out swinging with an Intel Core i5 4200U dual-core processor (1.6GHz, 3MB L2 cache) based on Haswell and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M GPU (Maxwell).

That's a potent one-two punch for gaming. If you opt for the Plus model, it'll also come with 8GB of DDR3 memory and a 1TB hard drive. Based on our experience with previous ZBOX systems, we'd suggest opting for the non-Plus model and plopping a solid state drive inside for added performance. Also bear in mind that these systems don't come with an operating system or optical drive -- you'll need an external optical drive or properly configured USB thumb drive to install an OS if starting out with a blank HDD/SSD.

Either way, all ZBOZ EN760 mini PCs come with HDMI and DVI-I outputs, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, dual GbE LAN ports, 4-in-1 memory card reader, four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back, one in front, and one on top), two DDR3L SO-DIMM slots, 2.5-inch drive bay, and a spot for an mSATA SSD.

"It’s the perfect time for a high-end gaming mini-PC," says Carsten Berger, senior director, Zotac International. "With a combination of the highly energy-efficient Nvidia Maxwell GPU architecture and Intel Haswell CPU architecture, we created the Zotac ZBOX EN760 series mini-PC to deliver a smooth and phenomenal 1080p gaming experience."
