Technology X made their way to the Zotac suite where they witnessed new SSD’s, both 2.5″ form factor and their new PCIe SSD, new prototype mini PC’s and smart home gadgetry!
First off on display was Zotac’s new entrance into the solid state storage industry with their 2.5″ form factor SATA f3 6 Gbps SSD’s. These feature Toshiba MLC NAND and are controlled by a Phison controller. We were also lucky enough to spot their new PCIe SSD capable of sequential read speeds of up to 2.5 GB/s and write speeds of up to 1,200 MB/s. For more information head on over to our sister website, The SSD Review.
Also being shown off in the Zotac suite was the Zotac C Series that comes equipped with Skylake processors. On display was a prototype that features an Intel i5-6300U processor packed with Intel HD Graphics 520. This also features USB 3.1 type C, dual gigabit lan, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Displayport and HDMI inputs. Pricing was not available as these are prototypes, but we can expect to see these in late Q2.
Also on display was an update to their ZBOX PICO lineup with Intel Cherry Trail T4. Again, this was another prototype featuring Intel’s Atom x7 quad-core processor with Intel HD graphics. It comes equipped with 32GB of eMMC storage, USB 3.1 Type C connector, gigabit ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card input and HDMI input. It also comes with Windows 10 pre-installed.
Zotac was also showing off their CoZee Smart Home Kit, which includes a smoke detector, sensors and video system.
