ZOTAC introduces its latest Zbox Magnus PC lineup, featuring NVIDIA’s newest GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, complete with refreshed designs and upgraded specifications.
ZOTAC’s renowned Zbox series is known for its incorporation of state-of-the-art parts within compact forms. This occasion sees the introduction of two versions within the Zbox Magnus series, showcasing NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 mobile and desktop GPUs.
Commencing with the premium Zbox Magnus One, ZOTAC has consistently presented this particular model over an extended period. Recently, the company has unveiled two distinct versions, namely the ERP74070C and ERP74070W, which share identical specifications but differ in color. These new Magnus One PCs are equipped with Intel’s Core i7-13700 processor, paired with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 desktop GPU. Delivering substantial performance gains over previous iterations, they stand out as early adopters of the Ada Lovelace architecture’s formidable capabilities.
Coming to memory and storage choices, the Magnus One iterations support up to 64 GB of DDR5-5600 memory via their two SO-DIMM slots. These units showcase two PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe slots and a 2.5-inch drive slot with SATA connectivity, resulting in a generous array of storage possibilities.
Despite their increased dimensions, measuring at 265.5 mm×126 mm×249mm, the new Magnus One models incorporate enhanced power, offering an elevated experience and an avenue for consumer upgrades.
In addition to their desktop-sized PC, ZOTAC has also introduced the Magnus One, catering to a more compact form factor with a design inspired by NUC systems. Naturally, due to its smaller size, the Magnus One opts for slightly scaled-down specifications, utilizing Intel’s Core i7-13700HX processor and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4070 laptop GPU. Despite this, they retain significant power within their realm and offer impressive portability.
Capable of accommodating a maximum of 64 GB DDR5-4800 memory modules, the Magnus One also offers dual M.2 NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD slots. Enhanced connectivity is a hallmark, with WiFi 6 and a 2.5 GbE Killer Ethernet port in tow. The system boasts five USB 3.1 ports and a Thunderbolt 4 port, effectively eliminating concerns about compromises despite its compact form factor. The Magnus One further features two DisplayPorts and one HDMI port for added display options.
With its compact dimensions measuring 210 mm × 203 mm × 62.2 mm, the Magnus One stands as an excellent choice for those seeking a petite yet capable mini-PC to meet all their needs. While it lacks an upgrade route, the onboard components assure enduring performance over time.
Although ZOTAC hasn’t unveiled pricing details for the fresh Magnus models, they have indicated global shipments are underway, implying you can anticipate its availability at your nearby retailers in the near future.
