Zotac Zbox CI331 nano presented

Another mini-PC has been added to the range of Zotac. The Zbox CI331 nano is a passive cooling solution that is also interesting for its platform. 

The heart of the PC is the Intel Celeron N5100. This is a Jasper Lake generation processor based on the Tremont architecture. The most energy-efficient architecture from Intel, according to the company itself. This is a 10-nanometer processor, and the bottom line is that such CPUs have been available on the market for about six months, but there seem to be no intelligible reviews on the Web at all. Of course, these are budget solutions with corresponding performance, but these are 10nm Intel processors on a completely new architecture. At the same time, for some reason, they do not cause much interest in thematic publications, because of this, it is impossible to say something specific about the performance of one or another CPU of the Jasper Lake line. 

One way or another, the Zotac mini PC also allows you to install up to 16 GB of RAM (there will obviously be completely ready versions on the market) and one 2.5-inch drive. There is also Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and a good selection of ports: USB 3.0, USB 3.1 (x2), USB-C, USB 2.0, HDMI, DisplayPort, RJ45 (x2), an SD card slot, and even a VGA connector. All this is enclosed in a case with a volume of less than 1 liter with dimensions of 127.8 x 126.8 x 56.8 mm.  

Zotac is specifically focusing on compatibility with Windows 11, which it looks like all PC makers will be doing in the near future. No pricing yet, but a similar model on the old Gemini Lake platform cost around $ 200.
