ZOTAC launches M-series nano boxes
Gaming hardware vendor hooks mini-PCs into Intel Broadwell
Graphics card and mini-PC vendor, ZOTAC International, this week announced its M-series, which integrates Intel's Broadwell processors.
The company launched the ZBOX MI522 nano and ZBOX MI542 nano, both compact desktops aimed at power efficiency and performance.
"We are always forward-looking and pleased to introduce the latest technology into our mini-PCs so our users can enjoy all the innovations that come with the times," said Jacky Huang, director, Product Management, ZOTAC International. "By integrating the new Intel Broadwell CPUs into our new M-series, we are enabling users to get the best of both worlds in terms of speed and power efficiency."
The MI522 model is aimed at users who are new to Broadwell architecture. ZOTAC said it has managed to shrink transistors to 14nm, boosting the transistor density on each chip, leading to enhanced calculation and graphics performance over the mini-PC's predecessors. Implanted with an Intel Core i3 processor, the unit measures 127mm x 127mm x 45mm (5in x 5in x 2in).
The MI542 also uses Broadwell and is fitted with an Intel Core i5. The box also features a clock speed of up to 2.7GHz, according to ZOTAC.
