All-in-One PC’s have been getting quite popular over the past few years. When Intel released the Atom processor we really saw All-in-One PC’s become affordable. One of the most popular All-in-One series of PC’s is Zotac’s ZBOX. These really appealed to the SFF (Small Form Factor) and HTPC (Home Theater PC) crowd. Now Zotac is bringing AMD’s Fusion E-350 APU in to the ZBOX’s series. Today we will be taking a look at the ZBOX HD-AD02 Plus that packs the E-350 1.6GHz APU as well as integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 2GB of DDR3, 250GB hard drive and WiFi. Let’s take a look and see if it is the perfect SFF system for you!
Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 560 Ti has been out for a few months now and just like pretty much every other card companies release a reference design and then they come out with an overclocked edition.

This overclocked card brings the core GPU clock up from 823 MHz to 950 MHz and the memory clock up from 1002 MHz to 1100 MHz. The card is also bundled with a free version of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Let’s take a look…

Today you see more and more home media servers and HTPC’s being sold on the market, along with the parts to build your own. I use a home media server for my PS3 and my other computers so that I can transfer and watch movies all over my house. This also gives me the ability to stream music to all of the PC’s and other wireless Devices. With all of our home electronics becoming more and more connected it’s convenient to have a media server. It allows me to control the music and movies in any of the rooms with PC’s on them with either my Android phone or my iPad. The possibilities are endless. In this review we will be taking a look at the Zotac IONITX-P-E which is an Mini-ITX motherboard with the processor embedded in to the motherboard. Mini-ITX is a very small form factor about half the size of a mATX setup.
Our friends over at Futurelooks had a great party on Wednesday night at Palms Place. Not only was it a party, but a product showcase for many of the companies that co-hosted the event. I really like these types of events because you really get one on one face time with companies and it is in a more relaxed environment. We were able to talk with Kingston, Zalman and Zotac so let’s see what they have in store for 2011.
Just about a month ago NVIDIA announced the new Fermi GF110 GPU and the GeForce GTX 580 video card. This will be NVIDIA’s new flagship card replacing the older GTX 480. The GF100 GPU was never what NVIDIA meant it to be and they went back and revised it a little bit for this new line of cards. This means they were able to achieve higher clock speeds and all 512 CUDA cores are enabled. Today we will be looking at a reference model from Zotac, the ZT-50101-10P. Let’s see how this card compares to the competition.
Throughout the years, tech heads like us often treat ourselves with latest gadgets or electronics. But, during this Valentine’s Day, we thought it might be a good idea for you to treat your special someone to something unique. Whether it’s your parent, spouse or even tech hungry teenager, they will love a brand new computer. The best part is the system will be brought to you free by Thermaltake and our awesome industry partners at ZOTAC, Western Digital and Patriot Memory. We are giving away not one, but three complete systems based on Thermaltake’s popular small form factor chassis, Element Q with 200W power supply. And, to celebrate this great occasion, each Element Q chassis has been uniquely painted to reflect your love and affection.
Zotac had a small but interesting showing, being one of the refugees from Sands, which wasn’t used during CES this year. They showed a new nettop, as well as some designs of netbooks, Nvidia graphics cards, and some small nano and mini ITX motherboards.
I spent an afternoon at the Sands this year, something which I was unable to do last year. The Sands exhibitors’ are comprised of primarily foreign exhibitors. Many are Taiwanese; in fact, there’s an entire section of the floor dedicated to Taiwanese companies. There are a few from China, a few from Japan, a few from Canada, and a few from Europe. I visited the boothes of CoolIT, Lian Li, QNAP, Seventeam, Super Talent, and Zotac.
