Small form factor desktop maker Zotac is launching a new nettop with an AMD E-350 (Zacate) chip and integrated Radeon HD graphics. While we’ve already seen a number of laptops announced featuring AMD’s new low power chip, the Zotac AD03 is the first nettop announcement I’ve seen.
The AMD E-350 chip combines AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics and a 1.6GHz dual core processor onto a single piece of silicon. The chip has a total power draw of 18W, which is high by netbook standards, but pretty low by desktop PC standards. The computer can handle 1080p HD video playback with ease, and in fact, the computer comes with a Blu-ray burner.
It also sports 2 DDR3 memory slots, a SATA hard drive bay, USB 3.0, a mini PCI Express slot, HDMI, DVI, and VGA output, Gigabit LAN, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The nettop is available either as a barebones system (without RAM, a hard drive, or an OS), or with 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive — but still no operating system.
