ZOTAC Supercharges ZBOX with Intel Core i5 Desktop Processor

ZOTAC today supercharges the ZBOX mini-PC with desktop Intel Core i5 and i3 processors for outstanding performance that can match and outpace larger full-size desktop PCs. The new systems use 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors to bring increased performance to the mini-PC form factor. The ZBOX ID88 series uses the Intel Core i3 3220T (dual-core, 2.8 GHz) and the ZBOX ID89 series uses the more powerful Intel Core i5 3470T (dual-core, 2.9 GHz, up to 3.6 GHz Turbo). No word on pricing, but we can’t imagine it being that bad since 4th generation Intel Core ‘Haswell’ processors are coming out soon.

“Users demanded the same performance as larger desktop PCs from our ZBOX but the small size made it virtually impossible to deliver the same performance as desktop PCs. After many months of engineering and fine tuning, we came up with a solution that enables us to install desktop LGA1155 socket Intel Core i5 and i3 processors without sacrificing size, noise or power consumption that will make our end users very happy,” says Carsten Berger, senior director, ZOTAC International.
