Thursday Zotac launched the latest addition to its ZBOX nano product lineup with the new ZBOX nano VD01 series. These palm-sized mini-PCs come packed with VIA's dual-core Nano X2 U4025 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz, VIA's Chrome9 GPU with ChromotionHD 2.0 processing, and two USB 3.0 ports.
"Zotac is pleased to expand its mini-PC lineup with the addition of a VIA platform,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac International. "The VIA Nano X2 with VX900H chipset enables us to deliver an affordable energy-efficient mini-PC that is ideal for digital media consumption and home server use with the Zotac ZBOX nano VD01 series."
The new VD01 series features two models: a bare-bones version and a "Plus" version. Both share the same specs across the board, and enough space to accommodate a 2.5-inch SATA drive and a DDR3 SO-DIMM module. However the "Plus" model actually ships with 2 GB of DDR3-1066 and a 320 GB 5400RPM HDD pre-installed.
As for additional specs, both models have HDMI and DisplayPort outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, a MCE-compatible remote and integrated IR receiver, and more. To see a hardware spec list comparing the two models, head here.
