Dubai, March 3, 2010
Zotac International, a top channel manufacturer, has redefined the mini-PC experience with the launch of a new generation of eco-friendly small form factor platform powered by NVidia ION technology
The new Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 mini-PC supercharges the eco-friendly computing experience with premium graphics processing, complete high definition playback capabilities and a premium Windows 7 experience with Aero user interface, the company said in a statement.
'Premium graphics processing power forms the heart of the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 mini-PC with a new Next-Generation NVidia ION graphics processor with 16 unified shaders and 512MB of DDR3 graphics memory complete with NVidia Cuda and NVidia PureVideo HD technologies for a superior eco friendly computing experience that goes well beyond simple web browsing,' said Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac.
NVidia Cuda technology harnesses the power of the NVidia ION graphics processor in the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 to energize popular video processing and image editing applications for performance that dominates traditional CPUs, he noted.
Cuda technology also enables support for DirectCompute and OpenCL powered applications on the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 for complete compatibility with general purpose GPU computing applications.
“Software companies took a big step in the last year to enable GPU-acceleration in their applications. Users can edit movies using Super LoiLoScope, enhance the quality of low-quality videos using vReveal and convert video files for use with portable media players using Badaboom with Cuda technology and our new Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 mini-PC using just the graphics processor,” he added.
“The model is perfect for home theater PC use as well daily usage. Watching high-definition movies with premium audio tracks is a rewarding experience with the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 mini-PC.” Berger said.
“The amount of clarity high-resolution 7.1-channel digital surround sound audio brings to the experience is phenomenal and can’t be put into words.”
Streaming high definition Internet video on popular sites such as YouTube, Vimeo and Hulu render smoothly and flawlessly in full screen with the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 and Adobe Flash Player 10.1, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
