In addition to launching its first mini PCs powered by AMD Ryzen processors, Zotac is updating its ZBOX nano line of tiny computers with two new models featuring 10th-gen Intel Core “Comet Lake” processors.
The new Zotac ZBOX MI662 nano and ZBOX CI662 nano are both compact computers by traditional desktop standards — although the CI662 has a larger case with lots of small holes in it because it’s a passively-cooled computer (meaning there are no fans inside).
Both of these systems will ship with Intel Core i7-10510U quad-core processors, but Zotac will also offer lower-priced configurations with Core i3 and Core i5 processor options.
For the most part, the fanless CI662 nano and the actively cooled MI662 have the same specs — the key difference is the size and shape of the computers.
- Intel Core i7-10510U processors
- Intel UHD graphics
- 2 SODIMM slots for up to 32GB of DR4-2400/2666 RAM
- 2.5″ drive bay for a HDD or SSD
- 2 x USB 3.1 Type-C
- 4 x USB 3.1 Type-A
- 1 x USB 3.0 Type-A
- 1 x HDMI 2.0
- 1 x DisplayPort 1.2
- 2 x Gigabit Ethernet
- 802.11ac WiFi
- Bluetooth 5.0
- SDXC card reader
- Mic and headphone jacks
And both systems are VESA mountable, meaning you can attach them to the back of a display to create a pseudo all-in-one desktop computer.
