Dubai, March 7, 2012
Leading computer hardware company, Zotac International, has launched three new mini-PCs in standard, nano and Blu-ray form factors.
The company said the new ZBOX ID82, ZBOX nano ID61 and ZBOX Blu-ray AD05 series mini-PCs are perfect matches for users seeking a powerful tower PC replacement, home theater PC or energy-efficient PC.
A high-performance Intel Core i3 2330M processor with hyper-threading technology makes the Zotac ZBOX ID82 series bring mini-PC performance to a whole new level with dual-cores for performance that can dominate much larger-sized tower PCs, a statement from Zotac said.
Intel HD Graphics 3000 with Intel Quick Sync Video, InTru 3D and clear video HD technologies bring fast GPU-accelerated video conversion, stereoscopic 3D video output and hardware-accelerated Blu-ray 3D playback to the ZBOX ID82 series mini-PC.
“The latest generation Intel Core i3 mobile processor enables us to give demanding users the performance edge they need for advanced tasks such as video and image processing,” says Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac International.
The new Zotac ZBOX nano ID61 series marks the debut of Intel processors in the ZBOX nano form factor with the dual-core Intel Celeron Processor 867 and Intel HD Graphics taking center stage.
Enhancements to the nano ID61 platform includes memory card reader upgrade to support high-capacity SDXC memory cards. The optical S/PDIF output arrives via a new combo analogue and mini-optical output jack.
“We listen to customer feedback and the latest enhancements to the ZBOX nano series with the new ID61 shows we quickly react to address requests,” Berger said. “The enhancements combined with the Intel Celeron Processor 867 make for a delightful mini-PC that fits in the palm of your hand.”
“Blu-ray continues as the physical movie media of choice for consumers that crave high-quality high-definition content. The Zotac ZBOX Blu-ray AD05 series mini-PC enables consumers to take advantage of stunning Blu-ray movies, stream internet content, pictures and downloaded,“ he said.
All three new ZBOXes are available as a customisable barebones platform with room to accommodate DDR3 SO-DIMM memory and a 2.5-inch Sata hard drive or SSD.
Models with 2GB of DDR3 and a 320GB hard drive pre-installed, are also available. A user-installed operating system is required for both. – TradeArabia News Service
