Zotac Unleashes The Ultimate LGA1156 Mini-ITX Platform: H55-ITX WiFi

Support for the latest generation of Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 takes the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi to performance levels previously unattainable by the mini-ITX form factor. The ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi supports Intel QuickPath technology for lightning-fast communications to high-speed dual-channel DDR3 memory for superior bandwidth and quicker memory access that delivers the chart-topping performance enthusiasts and performance-hungry users desire.

"Since Intel announced its latest generation of Nehalem CPUs, there's been great demand for a mini-ITX platform for the CPUs, unfortunately the power consumption and heat output of the original Intel Core i7 900 series would've been too high for such a small form factor," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO), Ltd. "With the latest generation of Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, greater energy efficiency and improved thermal management, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi is able to deliver a mini-ITX platform capable of accommodating the new high-performance processors with no compromises."

Beyond the support for the latest Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi supports the powerful Intel HD Graphics processor integrated in the latest generation of Intel Core processors. When the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi is paired with Intel Core processors with Intel HD graphics, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi becomes a powerful home theater PC platform with premium Blu-ray playback capabilities.

"Intel Core processors with Intel HD graphics and the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi platform is perfect for home theater PCs no matter what type of video formats the user may watch," Mr. Berger said. "In addition to top-notch HD video playback capabilities, Intel Core processors with Intel HD graphics and the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi features technologies that enhance standard definition content such as enhanced DVD upscaling (8x8 polyphase), advanced de-interlacing, sharpness enhancement and noise reduction."

Premium audio output is supported by the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi, enabling users to send raw Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio audio tracks from high-definition Blu-ray movies to an audio receiver over HDMI. High-definition 7.1-channel analog audio outputs are also available on the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi for top-notch analog audio quality.

For users that demand greater graphics power and want to take advantage of NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technology, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi features a full-speed PCI Express x16 slot for compatibility with the latest graphics cards.

"Combining the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi with a ZOTAC GeForce series graphics card, users can have the best performance available from the processor and graphics processor that'll take on anything you can throw at it including the most demanding games, applications and high-definition video playback," Mr. Berger said.

Topping off the features and capabilities of the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi are six SATA 3.0Gb/s ports, one eSATA 3.0Gb/s, digital optical S/PDIF output, plenty of USB 2.0 ports and integrated 802.11n WiFi. The integrated 802.11n WiFi features dual-stream technology for wireless network transfers at speeds up to 300Mb/s - triple that of standard 100Mb/s wired networking - for wired performance without the wires.
