Zotac’s new Nano mini-PC now sports Kaby Lake CPUs and up to 32GB of RAM

Zotac’s Kaby Lake powered gaming series of Zbox mini-PCs from earlier this year were certainly impressive on paper but not everyone requires a GTX 1070 inside their palm-sized system. So to cater to those who perhaps don’t need the gaming horsepower, this week Zotac is introducing the ZBox Nano, featuring Intel’s Kaby Lake CPUs, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and more all inside of Zotac’s smallest chassis yet.

 

If you’re wondering just how small the ZBox Nano is, then here are the exact dimensions: 5.76 (H) x 4.98 (W) x 2.36 inches (D). For IO, the system carries dual ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort and HDMI.

In terms of under the hood specifications, there are configurations with an Intel Core i5 7200U and an Intel Core i3 7100U depending on how much power you need. In both cases, Intel HD 620 graphics are used which is good enough for 4K resolution support but won’t get you very far with GPU intensive workloads. Aside from that, there are two SODIMM DDR4 slots supporting up to 32GB of RAM at 2133MHz.

KitGuru Says: This system isn’t quite as impressive as the ZBOX Magnus, which is just a tad bigger but packs a powerful graphics card. However, not everyone will need that sort of gaming horsepower, so it makes sense to offer something a little dialled back at a lower price.

    I’d get one of these to replace my HTPC (a Fujitsu Esprimo mini PC about the same size, i3-4130T, 16GB DDR3 1600MHz, Hynix SSD).

    The Esprimo is great and very low power. I’ve configured the power settings to be fairly aggressive. However any content above 1080p struggles to playback, despite the CPU and GPU supporting it.

    Kabylake should support HEVC playback at 4k with native decoding on the chip, and 4k Netflix. All while being quiet.

  • I’ve a Pentium G3220 and H81 itx setup for my htpc, along with a PicoPSU and no fan (it runs low power enough to not need the fan) its perfectly silent, though i dont have any issues with 1080p like you i have slight choppiness with anything above, the only things i can get to play well are much lower bitrate files at a lower framerate e.g sub 10mbits 30fps at 4K, but that just looks poor, besides that the haswell iGPUs dont support outputs above 1080p as far as im aware. (I cant get it to output higher anyway)
