Zotac is set to unveil a new wave of hardware at CES 2017, complete with its high-end ZBOX mini PC powered by Intel's newest seventh generation processors.


The ZBOX CI549 mini PC will merge ultra portability with impressive performance thanks to its onboard new Kaby Lake CPU from Intel. The processor will be passively cooled, and the ZBOX will feature multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports for blistering fast USB 3.1 10Gbps transfers, fast-charging and DisplayPort over Type-C capabilities for improved video performance.

"We believe the future of computing should be flexible," says Tony Wong, CEO, ZOTAC International. "Our next generation of computing products enables users to get the best of mobile and stationary experience."

Zotac has also unveiled the world's smallest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 video card ahead of the event in Las Vegas, and we can't wait to check out that tiny-yet-mighty GPU at the show.


Full specifications and details will be announced when CES 2017 kicks off next week, and TweakTown will be there at the show to bring you all the hottest news on the latest and greatest tech.

The next generation of high speed and versatile connection has arrived on ZOTAC Mini PCs with next generation Intel Kaby Lake processors and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Thunderbolt 3 delivers more transfer speed, more charging power and more compatible protocols. Richer display colors, lightning data transfer speed and a wide range of expansions become available with this new protocol.

The new ZBOX Mini PCs also introduce greater productive functionality with Intel vPRO and UNITE features. UNITE is introduced for the first time in ZOTAC Mini PCs, enabling it to become a platform for secure conference connections. Furthermore, it retains the functions of Intel vPRO and AMT, providing the convenience of deep repairs and maintenance through a remote connection. Intel Kaby Lake processors and GeForce GTX graphics are paired for the first time to make gaming Mini PCs more powerful and even more power efficient.
