Zotac picks VIA chip for new ZBOX nano

Written by Fudzilla staff

Back in our review of Zotac’s ZBOX nettop we concluded the company was becoming a bit, well, promiscuous.

Zotac started off as an Nvidia AIB, but it quickly jumped into the nettop market with a few interesting designs based on Intel’s Atom processors. Then it enlisted Nvidia’s ION for some SKUs and eventually it also embraced AMD’s Brazos platform. In case you needed more flavours, Zotac is now peddling a VIA based nettop, the ZBOX nano VD01.

It packs a Nano X2 U4025 processor clocked at 1.3GHz and Chrome9 graphics with HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. Available either as a barebone or complete system, the VD01 has one SO-DIMM slot and room for a 2.5-inch drive. If you go for the complete system you’ll get 2GB of RAM and a 320GB drive.

Although the ZBOX nano is one of the smallest nettops on the market, it’s feature packed and we can hardly think of anything more one would add in the mix, apart from an espresso machine and a dishwasher. It has two USB 3.0 ports, eSATA, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, MCE compatible remote, integrated IR receiver and even a USB IR receiver if you choose to place it on the back of your telly.

No word on price or availability yet, but the original ZBOX nano with AMD insides sells for about €210 in Europe.
