It is very likely that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will be the final Pascal-based desktop GPU to arrive for gamers, before next-generation architectures hit the scene in the not too distant future. As most of you probably know, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti targets enthusiasts and hardcore gamers and is positioned in the narrow gap between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. We took an extended look at NVIDIA’s Founders Edition card in our launch coverage. But here we’re turning our gaze toward a couple custom variants from Zotac and ASUS. In this piece we're pitting the Zotac GeForce... Read more...
Zotac is arguably the king of the hill when it comes to mini PCs and small form factor (SFF) computing, especially when you throw gaming into the mix. The company offers an extensive line of potent, pint-sized setups, some of which were on full display at the Consumer Electronics Show. But Zotac also dazzled passersby with some full-fledged custom gaming PCs and a really neat Destiny 2 case mod. It was an interesting way to show off its gear, and we make sure to take plenty of photos. We are kicking things off with the Destiny 2 case mod because, quite frankly, who doesn't appreciate a modded enclosure?... Read more...
Now that more systems are launching with Thunderbolt 3 ports, gaming hardware companies are releasing new product to take advantage of the high-speed connection. ZOTAC is the latest prominent hardware manufacturer to enter the fray with two new external GPU (eGPU) enclosures that can accommodate the latest flagship enthusiast graphics cards from AMD and NVIDIA. The regular AMP BOX measures 5.8" x 10.1" x 10.7" (WxLxH) and can accommodate a dual-slot graphics card up to 9 inches in length with a maximum TDP of 250 watts. The AMP BOX MINI is smaller still, coming in at 3.9" x 7.2" x 9.1" (WxLxH),... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on a rumor of forthcoming GT 1030 graphics cards from NVIDIA, and this week, their existence has been confirmed. Its launch creates a new battle: Radeon RX 550 vs. GeForce GT 1030, although based on the specs alone, it looks like the RX 500 is going to come ahead (but its price will scale). The rumor leading up to the launch of the GT 1030 showed that the card could come equipped with either 384 or 512 CUDA cores, but based on the models available right now, it appears that the variant with 384 CUDA cores is going to be more common. At this point, we can't find... Read more...
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...
