Next-Generation Energy Efficient Platforms Unveiled

New ZOTAC NM10 series deliver class-leading performance and energy efficiency to mini-ITX and mini-DTX form factors

HONG KONG - Jan. 4, 2010 - ZOTAC International, a leading manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards and mini-PCs, today introduces its latest energy-efficient small form factor platforms for eco-conscious PC users and enthusiasts - the new ZOTAC NM10 series with integrated WiFi. The new ZOTAC NM10 series arrives in two flavors with the mini-ITX form factor NM10-ITX WiFi and the mini-DTX form factor NM10-DTX WiFi for energy-efficient computing for all users, regardless of their size or expansion requirements.

The new ZOTAC NM10 series delivers class-leading energy-efficiency from a new Intel® Atom™ D510 dual-core processor and NM10 Express chipset with Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 integrated graphics for the perfect blend of performance and energy-efficiency. Paired with DDR2 memory, the ZOTAC NM10 series platforms have plenty of memory bandwidth and lightning-fast access latency for that extra performance punch for computing demands.

"More users are becoming eco-conscious about their computing demands. With the ZOTAC NM10 series platforms, users can have plenty of performance for email, word processing and web browsing on a desktop with superior energy-efficiency," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 integrated graphics on the ZOTAC NM10 series deliver compatibility with Microsoft® DirectX® 9 with Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL® 1.5 for a premium experience with Windows® 7 and Windows Vista® operating systems. Intel® Clear Video technology enhances standard-definition content while HDMI and VGA outputs enable connectivity with the latest LCD monitors and televisions.

Exclusive to the ZOTAC NM10 series platform is a HDMI output capable of resolutions up to 1366x768 (720p), a feature no other Intel® Atom™ with NM10 Express chipset platform will deliver. A VGA output compliments the HDMI output, for those still using analog display connections.

Expansion capabilities are plentiful on the ZOTAC NM10 series platforms with the mini-DTX form factor ZOTAC NM10-DTX WiFi packing PCI Express x16 (single lane) and PCI Express x1 slots, 2 SATA 3.0Gb/s, ZOTAC exclusive 4 SATA 3.0Gb/s with RAID 0, 1, 0+1 & 5, 1 eSATA 3.0Gb/s, 10 USB 2.0 ports, 5.1-channel high-definition audio, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n WiFi.

"ZOTAC is always evaluating the latest standards and form factors. The ZOTAC NM10-DTX WiFi is our first mini-DTX form factor platform. Mini-DTX enables us to provide micro ATX levels of expandability in a form factor that's slightly larger than our miniature mini-ITX platforms," Mr. Berger said.

The ZOTAC NM10-ITX WiFi delivers the same class-leading performance and energy-efficiency in a smaller mini-ITX form factor with one PCI Express x1 slot, two SATA 3.0Gb/s ports, 8 USB 2.0 ports, 5.1-channel high-definition audio, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n WiFi.

It's time to play with the new ZOTAC NM10 series platforms with integrated WiFi.
