Nvidia this morning officially launched its next-generation Ion platform, and with it, we expect a deluge of product announcements. One of those comes from Zotac, who today announced what it claims is the world's first Ion 2 powered mini-PC.
"The ZOTAC ZBOX HD-ID11 mini-PC is perfect for home theater PC use as well daily usage. Watching high-definition movies with premium audio tracks is a rewarding experience with the ZOTAC ZBOX HD-ID11 mini-PC." Mr. Berger said. "The amount of clarity high-resolution 7.1-channel digital surround sound audio brings to the experience is phenomenal and can’t be put into words."
Boasting easy customization with a tool-less case design, Zotac says users can cram their own memory and 2.5-inch SATA hard drive into the ZBox HD-ID11. Otherwise, the rig comes built around Nvidia's next-gen Ion platform and includes an Intel Atom D510 dual-core processor clocked at 1.66GHz, 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI and DVI outputs, VESA monitor mount, OpenCL compliance, Gigabit Ethernet, and Windows 7. It also includes six USB 2.0 ports, a single eSATA port, and a 6-in-1 memory card reader.
