Hardware manufacturer and mini PC maker Zotac has unveiled a new passively cooled mini PC which extends the Zotac C Series of systems and is designed to provide a more capable and energy-sipping ZBOX Mini PC. An Intel Gemini Lake processor powers the new ZBOX CI329 nano with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics processor.
The small mini PC is equipped with a variety of display outputs including DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA and is capable of 4K Ultra-HD resolutions @ 60 Hz. Other ports include 5 x USB ports, SDXC card reader, Headphone and Mic jacks, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and connectivity provided by both 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 5.0.
Zotac has made the system easily upgradable providing tool-less access to SO-DIMM memory slots and 2.5″ HDD/SSD bay for simple expansion. PLUS and Windows 10 Home models are also available, and the mini PC is capable of connecting to three monitors simultaneously if required. Zotac explains more: “A silent powerhouse that inherits the honeycomb matte black design from the best-selling C Series Passively Cooled Mini PCs. The ZBOX CI329 nano’s carefully engineered thermal design with a breathable surface enables the power within the CPU to be unleashed without the need for any fans. The unique design also grants superior heat dissipation providing a still cool to the touch exterior even under full load.”
