Zotac is announcing two new additions to their line of mini PCs: the ZBOX Pico PI225 and the ZBOX Pico PI335. There’s not a whole lot of information about specifications and other details, but they are both passively cooled.
The smaller PI225
The main difference between the two that one is smaller, but the other has more video connectivity. The ZBOX Pico PI225 is listed as the thinnest ZBOX that has ever been made, and it is capable of powering a single display at up to 4K resolution. Judging by the photos, it looks about SSD sized. The ZBOX Pico PI335 is bigger, but it has the ability to power two displays at up to 4K resolution.

Zotac has not yet released pricing or availability info.
I was skimming down the page
I was skimming down the page and thought ‘oh, Zotac is making SSDs now’. Looks like a pair of type-C connectors, so would that be one for power and the other for Displayport over thunderbolt/type C?
Did they also not announce
Did they also not announce any specifications regarding the internals, or did you think that aspect of them wasn’t important enough to mention?
Nope, they didn’t provide
Nope, they didn't provide that information to us. They just that it was passively cooled, the 225 is the thinnest yet, and what displays they each could power.
Would the Intel N3350 & HD
Would the Intel N3350 & HD Graphics 500 be up for some light Plex media transcoding duties? It’d be handy to put one of these next to my switch to run a Plex server with media served from my NAS.
