Zotac Adds ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus To Its Mini PC Lineup


Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs have become increasingly popular these days due to the fact that processors are becoming highly power-efficient. This week, Zotac introduced their latest custom-sized solution, the ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus based on the AMD E-450 1.65 GHz dual-core processor. Quite small compared to the nano-ITX, the unit’s motherboard measures 10cm x 10cm although it is somehow larger than the pico-ITX.

One of the largest barriers to PC miniaturization is the use of a 2.5-inch drive within the system. The arrival of mSATA together with the increased number of mSATA SSDs that are being put up for sale has encouraged system builders to reduce the volume and size of PCs. The ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus then features a 64GB mSATA SSD rather than a 2.5-inch hard drive for speedy boot times and overall responsiveness.

Solid-state storage debuts in the ZBOX whereas external storage expansion is made available through a USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, which can be used to charge tablets and smartphones while transferring data, along with eSATA, a memory stick, and a SDXC compatible memory card reader. High-speed wired network transfers are allowed via Ethernet whereas wireless network connectivity can be obtained through a USB 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter. Other specs and features of this mini-PC include microphone input, IR receiver, AMD Steady Video technology, AMD Perfect Picture HD technology and AMD Vision Engine.

Zotac’s ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus is now available for a price of $359.
