A New Brand, ZOTAC Gaming, Unveiled
ZOTAC Gaming’s first gaming product, MEK Gaming PC, debuts at Computex Taipei. Built for gaming enthusiasts, it is powered by a ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Mini, 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and a low-profile CPU Cooler to deliver overwhelming performance for high-end gaming and premium entertainment. With a futuristic design, MEK marks the beginning of gaming products for a new brand, ZOTAC Gaming, focused on gaming products fit for all who Live to Game.
Uplift Productivity and More Performance
More innovations come to the MAGNUS Gaming Series of ZOTAC Mini PCs. MAGNUS EN1050K, featuring an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, continues to raise the bar for small yet more powerful gaming machines.
For the first time, ZOTAC introduces a gaming Mini PC equipped with a full on desktop GeForce GTX graphics card. The inclusion of a 7th Gen Intel Core processor with Intel Optane Memory support or AMD Ryzen processor with a desktop graphics card boasts even more performance while still maintaining Mini PC pint sized dimensions.
ZOTAC also introduces the thinnest ZBOX yet with the debut of Pico PI225 Card sized Mini PC. Building on innovations pioneered by the original Pico model, PI225 is thinner than a #2 pencil at just 5.5mm thick. With a fanless passive cooled design, performance is silent and powerful enough to drive a 4K display. Slim and silent, Pico PI225 is designed for flexibility and used anywhere.
The ZBOX M Series debuts with an all new design powered by 7th Gen Intel Core processor with Intel Optane Memory support or AMD AM4 APU.
The World’s Smallest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
As a constant pioneer in developing small form factor graphics cards, ZOTAC unleashes two GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Minis with both making bold statements. The world’s smallest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the other with the world’s smallest waterblocked GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. Both at just 9 inch (228mm) in length, choose between dual-fans or liquid-ready waterblock for extreme performance in the most compact of size. Equally great in GPU performance is the new ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm, enhanced with full-coverage waterblock ready for liquid cooling and made even more beautiful with SPECTRA lighting.
Two refined ZOTAC External boxes make an appearance. One compatible with up to GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards fit for high-end gaming, and the other one in a compact size and suitable for NVMe PCIe SSD storage. They all bring easy, powerful gaming muscle via Thunderbolt 3.
