HONG KONG – August 30, 2016 - ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce MAGNUS 10 series as the world’s first Mini PCs equipped with NVIDIA Pascal™ Architecture. The award-winning ZBOX MAGNUS Gaming Mini PC series, renowned for whisper quiet performance, brings a refreshing level of power and speed.
MAGNUS is designed for gaming and entertainment. Hosting power that surpasses the requirements for experiencing virtual reality, MAGNUS is an ideal solution for both high-end gaming, premium entertainment, and much more.
“Small, powerful, and whisper quiet” continues to be the hallmark of the MAGNUS series. An Intel 6th generation Skylake CPU, a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 10 series graphics, and DDR4 memory support to generate the power to play even the latest games with intricate details and silky smooth frame rate.
The graphical performance breakthrough comes from NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 10-series, providing more memory, higher GPU clock and wider memory bandwidth. The result of these improvements deliver up to double* the relative performance from their predecessors. All performance gains come with the added benefit of lower TDP.
The MAGNUS EN1070 is equipped with the GeForce GTX 1070 while MAGNUS EN1060 is equipped with GeForce GTX 1060. Not only are both MAGNUS ZBOX VR ready, it can also do more with newer standards. Native 4K output at 60Hz is now standard with DisplayPort 1.3 and HDMI 2.0. Quad display support comes standard to provide a multiscreen entertainment experience.
DDR4 memory support is also implemented for the first time on the MAGNUS series gaming machines. Wider memory bandwidth, faster clock speed and quicker transfer rate are all on the table, but the greatest feature is its significantly lower operating voltage, meaning it draws less power and produces less heat.
Another innovation for the MAGNUS is the added support for PCIE x4 M.2 storage. SATA SSDs are common on most computers, but not all can reach read and write speeds of over 1,000MB/s. Not only will users feel the difference while booting up, it can become the difference in gaming where a fraction of a second is the decider.
The MAGNUS series continue to provide premium computing experience by taking care of the details. Both models come equipped with both USB 3.1 Type-C port and USB 3.1 Type-A port for speed and convenience. 802.11ac WiFi connection and dual gigabit LAN support also come standard.
Both VR Ready MAGNUS models only measure at 8.27 x 7.99 x 2.45 inches (L x W x H), making them the smallest VR Ready system to date. A matte black finish underlines its power and whisper quiet performance.
Both MAGNUS EN1060 and EN1070 come in barebones, PLUS and Windows 10 versions.
