Zotac adds two Z68-ITX WiFi motherboards

Posted on Wednesday, June 01 2011 @ 23:15:11 CEST by

Zotac presents two ITX form factor motherboards with Intel's Z68 chipset.
ZOTAC® International, a leading innovator and the world’s largest channel manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards and mini-PCs, today unleashes the Z68-ITX WiFi and Z68-ITX WiFi Supreme – a pair of mini-ITX platforms designed for the most adventurous and demanding enthusiasts. The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series enables users to take advantage of all features of 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ family processors including integrated graphics, overclocking and Intel® Quick-Sync Video technology.

Powered by the latest Intel® Z68 Express chipset, the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series enables adventurous enthusiasts to extract every ounce of performance available from 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ while maintaining use of Intel® GMA HD 2000/3000 series integrated graphics processors. Support for Intel® Quick-Sync Video technology enables lightning-fast video transcoding for virtually instant video conversions to popular portable media players with the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series.

Lucid Virtu software is bundled with the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series to let users combine the high-speed transcoding capabilities of Intel® Quick-Sync Video and discrete ZOTAC® GeForce® series graphics cards for the ultimate high-performance combination.

“The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series is our most ambitious mini-ITX offering to date – never before have we been able to match a full ATX board in features and overclocking capabilities.” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC® International.

The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series feature support for mSATA SSD drives for insanely-fast storage performance from a pint-size form factor. The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi features a switchable combo mSATA / mini-PCI Express slot, occupied by a WiFi card, while the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi Supreme has a dedicated mSATA slot on the backside of the board.

SATA 6.0 Gb/s and SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports are available on the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series for connectivity with standard 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives and SSDs. Intel® Smart Response Technology, or SRT, enables users to pair smaller capacity SSD drives with large hard disk drives for superior performance and system-responsiveness without sacrificing storage capacity with the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series.

“Storage performance is the greatest bottleneck for modern PCs. With the support for mSATA and Intel® SRT technology, our ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi boards substantially improve storage performance when paired with the right hardware,” Mr. Berger added.

The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi packs mini-DisplayPort and dual HDMI outputs for users that take advantage of the integrated Intel® GMA HD 2000 / 3000 graphics processors found on 2nd Generation Intel® Core family processors. A full-speed PCI Express x16 slot is available on the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi for users that demand greater 3D performance.

The ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi Supreme improves 3D capabilities by integrating a GeForce® GT 430 graphics processor with 1GB of DDR3 memory to enable stunning DirectX® 11 visuals, NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology and the ability to drive four simultaneous independent displays. An open-ended PCI Express x4 slot is available for additional expansion as well.

It’s time to play with the ZOTAC® Z68-ITX WiFi series mini-ITX platforms.
