Just a week after launching a new mini-desktop with an Intel Haswell processor, Zotac has introduced a new model with an AMD Kabini chip.
The Zotac ZBOX nano AQ01 is a tiny desktop computer with an AMD A5000 quad-core processor and Radeon HD 8330 graphics. It supports DirectX 11.1 graphics and can handle HD and 3D graphics, making it a decent candidate for a living room PC.
Like most members of the ZBOX family, the ZBOX nano AQ01 will come in two versions. The AQ01 Plus features 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive, but no operating system. The basic ZBOX nano AQ01 is an even more barebones product, shipping with a CPU, motherboard, case, and not much else.
Both models feature built-in 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and an external antenna as well as Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and DisplayPort. The system has 5 USB 2.0 ports and 2 USB 3.0 ports, a flash card reader, a single memory SODIMM slot (with support for up to 8GB) and support for a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive.
