Zotac's smallest ZBox to feature AMD E-450 APU

Written by Slobodan Simic

Should come in early Q2


We managed to dig up a bit more info regarding the new Zotac ZBox that was showcased at Cebit and it looks like this tiny rig will pack a serious punch, courtesy of AMD's E-450 APU.

The first clue came from the color of the circle on the top of the new ZBox, as Zotac has a clear way of differentiating its ZBox devices, blue is for Intel, orange is for VIA and, as you could guess, green is for ZBox devices based on AMD platform.

We managed to dig around a bit and it appears that the new ZBox will be packing AMD's dual core E-450 APU clocked at 1.65GHz. The E-450 APU comes with Radeon HD 6320 GPU that packs 80 shaders and, unlike the E-350's Radeon HD 6310 GPU, works at 508MHz with Turbo set at 600MHz.

The E-450 choice is pretty logical as it provides somewhat better performance at the same 18W TDP. The E-450 choice means that the new ZBox will certainly pack a nice performance punch packed in a small 106x106x37mm enclosure.

The new ZBox mini-PC is currently expected to show up in early Q2 and although the price wasn't mentioned, we must note that it might end up just a tad bit more expensive as it uses SSD instead of the standard HDD. Of course, SSD prices have never been lower so we don't expect a major price hit.
