Message Text: ZOTAC today starts the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 with a new 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX and a refreshed mobile-on-desktop 2nd Generation ZBOX mini-PCs.

The new ZOTAC ZBOX mini-PCs both receive Intel Core processors for outstanding performance.

The 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX is the most substantial evolution of the ZBOX since its introduction three years ago and receives a 7-mm increase in thickness to accommodate higher-performance components. Network connectivity receives an upgrade with the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX chassis for dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with teaming capabilities and dual external Wi-Fi antenna's for better wireless networking and Bluetooth reception.

ZOTAC engineers also enhanced the cooling subsystem of the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX chassis with triple the ventilation area for improved system cooling properties capable of handling the heat while maintaining quiet operation.

The 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX mini-PC takes the NVIDIA ION concept and gives it a serious injection of performance with an Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce graphics technology. A dual-core Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 graphics processor join forces to form a home theater PC combination in the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 graphics.

The NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 graphics processor enables hardware decode acceleration of popular high-definition video formats, including Blu-ray 3D, fast video processing for video playback and bitstream audio output capabilities for loss-less surround sound. The Intel Core processor provides fast system responsiveness and additional horsepower to decode new 10-bit video formats such as Hi10P .

The new 2nd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel HD Graphics 4000 rounds out the ZOTAC ZBOX lineup for CES 2013 with its 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 3120M processor. By integrating a mobile 3rd Generation Intel Core i3, the new ZBOX packs an Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor that delivers nearly twice the 3D performance of Intel HD Graphics 2500 found in most desktop 3rd Generation Intel Core processors.

The graphics boost helps the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel HD Graphics 4000 transcode videos up to 75-percent faster than previous generations.
