Hot off the press, something new from Zotac. They have just announced a brand new mini PC workstation, aimed at office users but looking at the spec, it could do alot more than just writing documents.
The all-new ZBOX QCM7T3000 is ultra-compact and the first Mini PC featuring the 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor paired with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 GPU. The ZBOX QCM7T3000 leverages the ZBOX Mini PC’s sleek design without compromising the industry leading graphics performance. From sophisticated industrial design and advanced special effects, to complex scientific visualization and big data modeling, the ZBOX QCM7T3000 is capable of resonating big performance.
It’s a tiny form factor PC, ideal for storing next to your monitor or nearby. It’s 210mm long, 203mm wide and just 62mm high. Even with such a small form factor, it’s still capable of holding all the components needed for a powerful workstation.
The QCM7T3000 (what a name!) includes the Intel i7-10750H, a 6core CPU upto 5GHz, plus 2No. RAM slots capable of holding upto 64GB DDR4 @ 2933MHz. It also includes the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 6GB GDDR6 GPU, which offers upto a 4 monitor arrangement. There are 2 HDMI 2.0 ports offering resolutions upto 3840×2160 and 2 DisplayPort 1.4, offering resolutions upto 4096×2160, both at 60Hz.
As for storage, there is a 2.5″ HDD bay, plus a M.1 SSD slot, so potential for plenty of space for both Windows and data. There is also an Intel Optane memory slot, when that becomes more mainstream.
There is also alot of flexibility on inputs & outputs too. These include four USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 and one USB3.1 type C. There is both options for a wired or wireless network connection too as standard. Lastly, there is your standard mic and headphone ports, plus a memory card reader.
From experience with Quadro cards, they’re excellent for architectural modelling, CAD drawings, Revit and various calculation packages. Coupled with the i7 processor and an option with plenty of ram & storage, this could be the office workhorse you’ve always wanted, in a small form factor. Hell, you could unplug it and take it home with you over the weekend for an extra bit of overtime!
They will be available from the end of August, with a retail price of £1625 all in. For more info, head over to the official Zotac website.
