An Intel® Celeron® SU2300 processor powers the ZOTAC® ZBOX HD-ND22 and ION-ITX P series with dual-cores clocked at 1.3 GHz for multi-threaded processing power that delivers unprecedented performance levels in an energy-efficient mini-PC for demanding users. A Single-core Intel® Celeron® 743 processor powers ZOTAC® ZBOX HD-NS21 and ION-ITX N series platforms for outstanding single-threaded CPU performance.

 

"Intel® CULV processors have previously been exclusive to ultra-portable notebooks, but not anymore. We've taken the award-winning Intel® CULV processors and paired them with our award-winning ION™ platforms to produce the world's first mini-PCs and mini-ITX platforms that combine the power of Intel® CULV processors with NVIDIA® ION™ graphics processing for the perfect combination of CPU and GPU performance with superior energy-efficiency," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC® International.

 

NVIDIA® ION™ graphics empower the Intel® CULV-powered ZOTAC® ZBOX and ION-ITX platforms with outstanding 3D capabilities and support for Microsoft® DirectX® 10, DirectCompute and NVIDIA® CUDA™-enabled applications for energy-efficient GPU computing. NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology delivers flawless GPU-accelerated high-definition video playback with breathtaking clarity and details.

 

ZOTAC® ZBOX HD-ND22 and HD-NS21 mini-PCs with Intel® CULV processors feature class-leading flexibility with an easily customizable tool-less chassis and room to accommodate a 2.5-inch SATA 3.0 Gb/s HDD or SSD, two DDR3 SO-DIMM memory slots, integrated 802.11n WiFi and four different placement positions - flat, on a stand, on the back of a monitor or on a wall with the included VESA75/100-compatible mount. External expansion options include plenty of USB 2.0 ports, a 6-in-1 memory card reader that supports SD, SDHC, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro and xD memory card formats, and an eSATA 3.0 Gb/s port for plug 'n play expansion.

 

ZOTAC® ION-ITX N and P series are world-class platforms that combine the miniature size of mini-ITX with big-system expansion capabilities including a PCI Express x16 slot, two DDR3-1066 DIMM slots, three SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports, up to 10 USB 2.0 ports and an eSATA 3.0 Gb/s port. Onboard 802.11n WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet port enables lightning-fast network transfers for stutter-free high-definition video streaming.
