Zotac’s Zbox Magnus EN1080 is everything you’d want from a mini-PC


Zotac has a healthy market share in the mini-PC segment, having introduced its first product in this segment all the way back in 2008. The company is now in its tenth year of operations, and to mark the occasion, it has launched the Zbox Magnus EN1080, a fully loaded mini-PC that has everything you’d ever imagine from a high-end machine.

The Magnus EN1080 comes with an Intel Core i7-6700 CPU clocked at 3.4GHz, 8GB of DDR4 RAM at 2133MHz (extensible up to 32GB), 1TB mechanical drive, 120GB M.2 SSD, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5X video memory. In terms of connectivity, the Magnus EN1080 offers two DisplayPort 1.3 connectors, three HDMI 2.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C, one USB 3.1, and four USB 3.0 ports. There’s Wi-Fi ac built-in as well as Bluetooth 4.2, and you also get an SD card reader. For those interested in plugging in, the machine offers a Gigabit Ethernet port as well.


The Magnus EN1080 uses a custom liquid-cooled solution to effectively manage the heat, and the design features RGB LEDs embedded into the chassis for customizable light effects. At a special event to commemorate the 10-year milestone, Zotac CEO Tony Wong said:

I would like to acknowledge our staff’s effort in making this happen – both this event and the past 10 years. Since putting the name ZOTAC onto the things we make, we have never stopped finding ways to make it even better. Our ultimate vision is to put ZOTAC into every piece of technology we use.

No mention as to when it’ll go on sale, but it should make its debut sometime next year.
