Earlier this year, Zotac released the Magnus EN980, a mini PC featuring Nvidia’s GTX 980 MXM graphics card. Now, Zotac is aiming for the VR-ready mini PC market again with the Magnus EN1060 and Magnus EN1070, which are equipped with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics cards.
There will be bare-bones versions with just the CPU, motherboard, graphics and housing, which means you will need to provide your own storage and memory. Other options will include one that’s hardware complete and simply requires an operating sys to install, or complete sys that will run right off of the bat without any fiddling whatsoever.
The new EN1060 and EN1070 are both direct successors to the EN970 while keeping the overall chassis design of existing SN970. As their names would imply, the EN1060 will be shipping with GTX 1060 graphics and EN1070 with the GTX 1070. These GPUs are expected to be soldered onto the their respective boards, but core specifications are almost identical to the EN970 including the dual-core Skylake CPU:
- Intel Core i5-6400T
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 w/ G-Sync
- 2x DDR4 SODIMM slots (up to 32 GB)
- 1x M.2 PCIEx4 / SATA SSD slot (22/42,22/60,22/80)
- 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x DP 1.3
- 1x 2.5-inch SATA III bay
- 210 mm x 203 mm x 62.2 mm
Additional specifications for the EN1060 and the EN1070 can be found on their official product pages. Zotac has not announced any prices or the availability dates as of this writing, but we expect that these to retail well over $1000 USD each considering that the EN980 and its GTX 980 GPU launched for over $1500 USD retail.
