There is a relatively new product category gaining steam. It's the gaming backpack for VR, which is essentially a desktop configuration that you strap to your back while wearing a tethered VR headset such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. These aren't wimpy systems, either. Zotac's recently announced VR Go sports a Core i7-6700T quad-core processor paired with a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, and it's now available to purchase for $2,000.Zotac unveiled its burly VR Go backpack earlier this week but neglected to mention a price or when it would be available. Well, it's now showing up on Amazon, albeit... Read more...
Hot on the heels of debut of the MSI VR One gaming backpack comes a similar product from Zotac. The Zotac VR GO uses the same “PC backpack” concept as MSI, giving gamers an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA Pascal power for unencumbered virtual reality gaming. In this case, you’ll find a quad-core Core i7-6700T (Skylake) processor paired with up to 32GB of RAM (16GB is preinstalled) along with a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. Storage duties are handled by a 240GB M.2 SATA SSD and you’ll be greeted by an abundance of ports (six USB 3.0, dual GbE, three HDMI 2.0, two DisplayPort, 3-in-1 media reader).... Read more...
At this point, we’re sure you’re all aware of the goodness that is NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and the GeForce GTX 10 series that is built around an array of Pascal-based GPUs. If you’re not – shame on you – you’ve been slacking on your tech homework and we order you to check out our coverage of Pascal and the GeForce GTX 10 series, in enthusiast, mainstream, and mobile flavors. Heck, check out this round-up too, while you’re at it.What you’ll find, after you finish your reading assignments, is that NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GPUs are efficient and relatively power friendly, including the monstrous...

Manufacturers are increasingly putting incredibly potent GPUs into smaller enclosures, as witnessed by gaming notebooks from Razer and Alienware. But that trend is also extending to small form-factor PCs as well, with Zotac announcing the first mini gaming PC with AMD Polaris courtesy of an AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card with 4GB GDDR5 memory: the MAGNUS ERX480. In addition to the virtual reality prowess made possible by the Radeon RX 480, the machine of course supports native 4K display output and can handle up to four displays at once. The processor at center stage is a quad-core Intel Skylake-based... Read more...
We reported over the weekend that a few different vendors have been teasing their upcoming GeForce GTX 1060 models, which for an unreleased card is quite interesting, but it has helped increase the momentum of NVIDIA's hype train. Now, ZOTAC has decided to get in on the action by announcing its own models that are going to cater to those with SFF builds: two ITX versions of the GeForce GTX 1060. Unfortunately, ZOTAC hasn't been able to actually show us what its ITX models look like yet, but an example of what the company's GeForce GTX 960 ITX edition looked like last generation can be seen below....

As if we needed more reasons to fall in lust with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, the GPU maker's hardware partners have begun releasing custom variants that up the ante with more aggressive aesthetics, superior cooling, and faster clockspeeds. We saw it yesterday with EVGA's GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked ACX 3.0 Edition, and now ASUS and Zotac are following suit with custom designed Pascal parts of their own.We'll start with ASUS, which tapped its Republic of Gamers division to construct the ROG Strix GTX 1080. ASUS considers it "the new king of the hill," and though its competitors might... Read more...
Given the super-long wait, it's almost hard to believe that the official launch of Valve's Steam OS, Steam Machines, Steam Controller, and Steam Link is right around the corner. While there's just one choice on the gamepad and streamer front, there are a ton of different Steam Machines to choose from, from top makers like MAINGEAR, ORIGIN, Alienware, Digital Storm, and even ZOTAC. Some Steam Machine vendors have decided to go big, but ZOTAC wants to keep things simple, and make sure its NEN PC doesn't take up that much room around the TV. It measures 8.26" wide, 7.99" deep, and 2.45" thick - it's... Read more...
The last time we visited Zotac, the company managed to stuff NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M-class graphics into its Zbox Magnus EN970 mini PC. This time around, Zotac is has dialed down things a bit with the introduction of two Intel Braswell-based mini PCs: the Zbox BI323 and Zbox CI323 Nano. The Zbox BI323 is powered by a 1.6GHz, quad-core Celeron N3150 processor, includes Intel HD Graphics, a single 2.5-inch SATA slot for a HDD or SDD, and two DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMM slots (up to 8GB can be installed). External ports include HDMI 1.4b, DisplayPort 1.1a, VGA, a 3-in-1 card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, one... Read more...
We had to look it up, but sure enough, Zotac has dabbled in the solid state drive market before, though not extensively. Up until today, its sole SSD offering was a 120GB drive with up to 520MB/s and 170MB/s of sequential read and write performance, respectively. And now? The company best known for pumping out mini PCs is fleshing out its SSD line with a new Premium label series.Don't get too caught up in the branding, they're Premium by name but a bit pedestrian compared to today's ultra fast NVMe M.2-based SSDs. In that regard, Zotac is unfashionably late to the high-end storage party with a... Read more...
We’ve always been enamored with Zotac’s tiny Zbox mini PCs for quite some time now, but the company just may have outdone itself with the new Zbox Magnus EN970. For starters, let’s go ahead and get this out of the way — you won’t find an Intel Skylake processor under the hood on the Zbox Magnus EN970. Instead you’ll find a completely competent Broadwell-based, dual-core Core i5-5200U CPU processor. But the magic happens when we move to the graphics power that is lurking within this pint-sized machine, which measures just 8.3” x 8” x 2.1”. Inside you’ll find an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 graphics card... Read more...
At this point, if you’re an avid follower of PC and gaming tech, we’ll assume that you’ve heard about NVIDIA’s Maxwell GPU architecture and the full line-up of graphics cards it powers. We most recently took a look at the mainstream GeForce GTX 960, but Maxwell is at the heart of the entry-level GeForce GTX 750 / 750 Ti and the flagship GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 as well.In all of its iterations, Maxwell has proven to be a good performing, power-efficient architecture. But it’s at the high-end of the market where some of the most exciting products reside. Typically, when NVIDIA launches a new... Read more...
ZOTAC has a number of new products it's anxious to show off at next week's CES, with its ZBOX series getting quite a big share of the love. Of course, it wouldn't be a ZOTAC showing without some graphics cards on hand, so those can be expected as well. The product that stands out most to me is the refreshed ZBOX E-series, as these little router-sized PCs boast some lofty features. Would you believe, for example, that NVIDIA's G-SYNC is fully supported? That's made possible with the inclusion of NVIDIA's GeForce 860M. And while G-SYNC might not matter to you too much, 4K might, and fortunately,... Read more...
If there's a company that knows how to build a pint sized PC, it's Zotac, makers of a about a million different ZBOX models (we rounded up a bit). Zotac's newest creation is the ZBOX Nano XS. It's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet packs an Intel Core i3 4030U dual-core processor based on Haswell inside. That's not all. There are two DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMM slots that support up to 16GB of RAM, an mSATA port, HDMI and mini-DisplayPort output options, 3-in-1 memory card reader, GbE LAN, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 2.0 ports (front), two USB 3.0 ports (back), 3.5mm input and...

Perhaps in another few generations, we'll have super powerful gaming PCs that measure about the size of a fingernail. In the meantime, the mini PC movement is in full force, and Zotac is leading the charge. The newest small form factor (SFF) PC from Zotac is the Zbox PI320 Pico, an ultra-tiny system about the size of a smartphone (it measures 115.5mm x 66mm x 19.2mm). Despite its small size, the Zbox PI320 packs some impressive hardware and features. It sports an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor based on Bay Trail, 2GB of DDR3L memory, 32GB of eMMC storage flanked by a microSD card slot, 3-in-1... Read more...
