Zotac rolls out three new ZBOX nettops

Written by Fudzilla staff



CES 2012: AMD and Intel flavored triplets


Zotac has revamped its ZBOX nettop lineup with three new models based on the latest AMD and Intel chips.

All three feature virtually the same design as previous ZBOX models, but the design has stood the test of time and we still think it’s top notch. However, this time around Zotac included quite a few new features, including Bluetooth 3.0 and a bundled media remote with USB IR receiver. An external WiFi antenna is also included.

The ID81 version packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Celeron 857 processor based on the Sandy Bridge core, with integrated graphics. The ID80 is based around the new, extremely power efficient Atom D2700 processor, with Nvidia GT 520M graphics.

The AD04 is probably the most interesting model. It’s based on AMD’s E-450 APU with integrated HD 6320 graphics, and given the pricing of earlier models, it could also end up cheaper than Intel versions. We tested the previous E-350 based version last summer and we loved it.

All three models will be available as barebones, or complete Plus systems, with 320GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. If you are interested in barebones, you can count on two SODIMM DDR3 slots and one 2.5-inch drive bay.
