Zotac has updated its line of ZBOX Mini PC systems with three new models that will be based on Intel's 4th generation Core Haswell CPUs. According to Zotac, the ZBOX ID91, ID92 and the ZBOX IQ01, will deliver improved CPU performance paired with supercharged integrated graphics that should provide an excellent experience for everyday computing tasks.

Featuring Intel's 4th generation Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 Haswell CPUs all three will feature much better graphics performance and the IQ01 will actually one of the rarest Mini PCs on the market equipped with a quad-core CPU. The entry-level ZBOX ID91 will feature Intel Core i3 4130T, the mainstream ZBOX ID92 will pack Intel Core i5 4570T and the new flagship ZBOX IQ01 will feature a quad-core Intel Core i7 4770T.

The entry-level ZBOX ID91 with Core i3 4130T will pack Intel's integrated HD Graphics 4400 which is, according to Zotac, perfect for everyday computing tasks such as web browsing, office productivity and image editing. On the other hand, the ZBOX ID92 and the ZBOX IQ01 features Intel HD Graphics 4600 with triple display compatibility via dual DisplayPort and single DVI-I output. When combined with Zotac DisplayPort to Dual HDMI adapter, the ZBOX ID92 and the ZBOX IQ01 can drive a single 4K display that requires four independet HDMI inputs.

The rest of the specifications include 802.11ac wireless networking, dual Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0 for connectivity as well as a bunch of other ports and inputs including USB 3.0 and mSATA 6Gbps port for internal storage.

As always, all three models will be available as barebones or as PLUS models that will feature pre-installed 4GB of DDR3 memory as well as a 500GB HDD.

Unfortunately, Zotac did not shed any light on the actual price or the availability date for the new models.
