Think of a gaming PC, and you’re likely to imagine a machine with a name like “The Beast”, with all the flashing LEDs and a specs list that sounds like it’s for a space shuttle. As other tech devices get smaller, gaming PCs only became larger in size. That is until Zotac’s Zbox Magnus EN1070K popped up.
The Zbox Magnus EN1070L is a part of Zotac’s E-series. The E-series is a range of miniature computers that aim to keep the power of a gaming PC without the extras. The Magnus EN1070K is only just bigger than a Mac Mini, coming in at 8.27 x 7.9 inches. With its small size, the gadget doesn’t take up too much physical space. Perfect for people who want a high performing system but lack the area to store the desktop.
Specs of the Magnus EN1070K
On the inside, the processor powering the Magnus EN1070K is the Intel Kaby Lake Core i5. The GPU is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. There are 32GB RAM, an M.2 SSD slot, and a 2.5-inch SATA internal storage drive.
These specs won’t play games that require the best of the best specs, but unless you’re a hardcore gamer, you’re covered with what you need.
Experience VR Worlds
The specs are more than enough to give you the chance to experience the virtual reality world. An issue many people had with VR was the size of the desktop needed and that you are tethered to the machine. The Magnus EN1070K can fit into a backpack, so users will be able to move around easier in a VR world. Or take the device to a friend’s place and share the VR world.
The Magnus EN1070 will work with VR devices like the Oculus Rift.
The size doesnm’t affect the number of inputs and outputs on the Magnus EN1070K. There are two USB 2.0 ports; two USB 3.0 ports; two Ethernet ports; two HDMI ports; two display ports; a USB 3.1 Type-A port; a UBS-C port (Thunderbolt 3); an SD card slot; and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
There hasn’t been an announcement made on the release or pricing of the Magnus EN1070K. The previous generation E-series model was around $1,500, a high price for many people.
