Zotac this week introduced 2 caller compact desktops, some packing versions of NVIDIA's higher-end GeForce RTX 4070-series graphics processors. The Zbox Magnus One is an upgradable, desktop-style SFF instrumentality pinch an 8.3-liter chassis and includes a desktop GeForce RTX 4070 paper inside. Meanwhile nan Zbox Magnus is simply a mini instrumentality that's adjacent to a NUC successful size and construction, and includes a soldered-down GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU.
Zbox Magnus One: Not So Small, But Powerful
Zotac has been offering its Zbox Magnus One mini form-factor desktops for immoderate clip (and we even reviewed 1 of them), but nan models ERP74070C and ERP74070W pack Intel's latest Core i7-13700 processor paired pinch NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 graphics paper pinch 12 GB of GDDR6X representation (AD104, 5888 CUDA cores, 29 FP32 TFLOPS). The instrumentality supports up to 64 GB of DDR5-5600 representation utilizing 2 SO-DIMM modules, 2 M.2-2280 SSDs pinch a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, and moreover 1 2.5-inch thrust pinch a SATA interface.
In addition, nan caller Zbox Magnus One ERP74070 boasts pinch a rich | connectivity section that includes a Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.2 adapter, a 2.5 GbE Killer-enabled port, a regular GbE port, 1 Thunderbolt 4 connected nan back, 7 USB 3.0/3.1 connectors (one USB Type-C connected nan front), an SD paper slot pinch UHS-II support, 5 show outputs (three DP 1.4a and 1 HDMI 2.1 connected nan graphics paper and 1 HDMI connected nan motherboard) and a TRRS audio connector for headsets.
The portion measures 265.5 mm (10.45 inches) × 126 mm (4.96 inches) × 249mm (9.8 inches) and is not that small, truth to beryllium told. But it has an indisputable advantage complete different SFF desktops arsenic it tin beryllium upgraded pinch a much powerful 65W CPU and a much powerful graphics paper arsenic agelong arsenic its 500W 80+ Platinum-badged tin grip it.
Traditionally, Zotac will connection its Zbox Magnus One arsenic barebones and arsenic fully-configured machines pinch Windows pre-installed.
Zbox Magnus: Tiny Yet Mighty
As for the Zbox Magnus EN3740C, it is based upon Intel's Core i7-13700HX CPU arsenic good arsenic NVIDIA's NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU (AD106, 4608 CUDA cores astatine up to 2175 MHz, 20 FP32 TFLOPS) pinch 8 GB of GDDR6. The usage of a laptop-spec GPU intends that it's not arsenic powerful arsenic its desktop counterpart, but it comes astatine a considerably little thermal envelope. The instrumentality tin beryllium equipped pinch 64 GB of DDR5-4800 representation utilizing 2 modules and a mates of M.2-22110 SSDs pinch a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface.
Connectivity-wise, nan mini PC is not acold down its bigger relative arsenic it has a Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.2 adapter, 1 2.5 GbE Killer-enabled port, 1 GbE connector, 1 Thunderbolt 4 port, 5 USB 3.1 ports, 3 show outputs (two DisplayPorts, 1 HDMI), an SD paper scholar pinch UHS-II support, and a TRRS audio connector for headsets.
Since nan PC uses soldered-down mobile components, it cannot beryllium upgraded (at slightest not by nan extremity user), but connected nan agleam side, it measures 210 mm × 203 mm × 62.2 mm (8.27 in × 7.99 in × 2.45 in) and it offers rather a batch already from specified a compact package.
Just for illustration successful lawsuit of each Zotac's PCs, Zbox Magnus EN3740C will beryllium disposable arsenic barebones arsenic good arsenic a complete strategy pinch memory, SSD, and Windows installed.
