Zotac has unveiled its latest ZBOX mini-PC system, the Magnus EN970, which will pack a bit more punch than your average mini-PC.

Based on Intel's Core i5-5200U Broadwell CPU and Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 memory, the Magnus EN970 will pack some serious performance in a chassis that still puts it in the mini-PC category, thanks to its 210x203x52.5mm dimensions.

The Core i5-5200U Broadwell dual-core CPU is clocked at 2.2GHz with 2.7GHz Turbo, features support for Intel Hyper Threading, packs 3MB of L2 cache and has a 15W TDP. While the same CPU comes with Intel HD 5500 GPU, Zotac decided to pair it up with a rather powerful Maxwell-based GTX 960 graphics card with 1280 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 192-bit memory interface.

The rest of the specifications include support for up to 16GB of DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMM memory in two slots, support for single M.2 and two 2.5-inch storage devices, four HDMI 2.0 outputs, integrated 802.11ac with Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, 3-in-1 card reader, two USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0 ports.

As was the case with previous Zotac ZBOX mini-PCs, the new ZBOX Magnus EN970 will also be available as a barebones and as a plus version that will ship with a 120GB M.2 SATA SSD and 8GB of DDR3L-1600MHz SO-DIMM memory.

Unfortunately, Zotac did not reveal any details regarding the price or the precise release date.
