Zotac is stepping up its mini-PC game with a new Zbox, the MA760, which is based on AMD's FX-7600P APU. The Kaveri-based mobile chip has quad cores clocked up to 3.6GHz, plus Radeon R7 graphics with 512 shader cores running at up to 686MHz. The onboard GPU drives quad (yes, four!) DisplayPort outputs.
The old-school serial port may seem like a strange addition, but given the complement of graphics and network ports, we're guessing this Zbox is aimed at business users and digital signage. Other features include 802.11ac wireless connectivity via a protruding antenna, room for a 2.5" drive and two DDR3 SO-DIMMs, two USB 3.0 ports at the back plus one on the side, and a card reader with an integrated USB port.
At 7.4" x 7.4" x 2" (18.8 x 18.8 x 5.1 cm), the Zbox is smaller than most PCs but larger than the average NUC. Zotac includes a VESA monitor mount, so you can tuck the beast away, lest it bite someone.
The MA760 will be available in a barebones config and as a Plus variant with a 500GB mechanical hard drive and single 4GB SO-DIMM.
