Zotac shows off the Magnus EN980, a new compact yet powerful gaming PC. The system is watercooled and features a special enclosure for greater natural heat dissipation. Inside you can find an Intel Core i5 "Skylake" processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 video card. Availability is unknown, Zotac will show off the Mini PC at CeBIT and GDC later next month.
ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of
innovation, is pleased to introduce the most powerful ZBOX Gaming Mini PC ready
for virtual reality, MAGNUS EN980. This ZBOX is equipped with a 6th generation
Intel Skylake processor and features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card to
deliver a VR experience in the most compact form factor.
MAGNUS EN980 packs the full power of a premium desktop gaming solution into a
ZBOX Mini PC. The result is the most powerful ZBOX, and goes beyond the
recommended specifications for VR experience.
The unit supports up to four displays via HDMI and DisplayPort, enabling other forms
of entertainment that is best enjoyed with multiple displays. USB 3.0 is the standard
with a USB 3.1 type-C port which delivers up to 10Gbps data transfer rate. Along
with dual gigabit LAN and 802.11ac WiFi, the MAGNUS EN980 is quick across the
While the Intel Skylake CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 provides the power that
pushes the gaming experience further, the factory-installed water-cooling solution
keeps MAGNUS cool. By lining liquid channels, heatpipes and heat fins, the heat is
directed away from the source, effectively keeping the power core cool. With all the
powerful hardware in the most compact of size, amazingly ZOTAC still manages to
keep it whisper quiet.
All the performance is housed by a newly designed case that encompasses function
and style. Designed with a functional minimalistic approach, it incorporates the
water-cooling system, and the shape and surface dimensions to provide great
effectiveness in heat dissipation, further strengthening the cooling process with the
help of natural aerodynamics.
