HONG KONG – May 8, 2013 – ZOTAC International, a global innovator and leading manufacturer of graphics cards, mainboards and mini-PCs, today supercharges the ZBOX mini-PC with desktop Intel Core i5 and i3 processors for outstanding performance that can match and outpace larger full-size desktop PCs. The new 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel Core Processors ushers in a new era of performance to the mini-PC form factor.
“Users demanded the same performance as larger desktop PCs from our ZBOX but the small size made it virtually impossible to deliver the same performance as desktop PCs. After many months of engineering and fine tuning, we came up with a solution that enables us to install desktop LGA1155 socket Intel Core i5 and i3 processors without sacrificing size, noise or power consumption that will make our end users very happy,” says Carsten Berger, senior director, ZOTAC International.
Users have two choices of processor with the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel Core Processors. Casual users seeking great performance for everyday computing can opt for the dual-core Intel Core i3 3220T-equipped ZBOX ID88 series while more demanding users can step up to the Intel Core i5 3470T-equipped ZBOX ID89 series.
The Intel Core i5 3470T processor adds Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology to intelligently increase clock speeds of individual processor cores up to 3.6 GHz depending on computing demands of the operating system and applications. Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) enhances virtualization capabilities on the Intel Core i5 3470T for superior performance for virtualization uses.
Intel HD Graphics 2500 graphics processing transforms the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel Core Processors into powerhouse HTPCs with Intel Quick Sync Video technology for lightning fast video conversions, Intel InTru 3D technology for stunning and smooth Blu-ray 3D playback with advanced audio technologies, and Intel Clear Video HD technology for hardware-accelerated high-definition video playback.
It’s time to play with the 3rd Generation ZOTAC ZBOX with Intel Core Processors.

I am in the market for a
I am in the market for a quiet small form factor PC with a decent GPU (equiv of a high end laptop).
And It dosen’t need to be very upgradeable.
The only thing that I can find is the mac mini, but it only has a hd4000 which is a little lower end than I want.
Any one know of anything…. my emphasis is on quiet..
You can read about the arctic
You can read about the arctic MC101 here
if you dont want hdd bottlenecking your system then choose barebone and equip with ssd u can add bluray if u want too.
Arctic has n app to use ur iphone r android s n remote control.
Small HTPC with good graphics

Seriously bad time to release
Seriously bad time to release this with crappy HD2500 when Haswell is about to ship. It’s 12 month old tech.
anyone else not remotely
anyone else not remotely interested in this form factor until Haswell comes out?

HD4000 is good enough for me. Although pricey I would go for the Intel NUC but stick it in the Tranquil PC case (fanless), the standard NUC is not very loud, but is noticeable
If not in a hurry then wait for Haswell
