CES 2020 | Zotac Inspire Studio mini PC is a Magnus in disguise with GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics
Apparently, it's becoming a trend to take an existing black gaming laptop or mini PC, give it a coat of white paint, and then slap the word "Studio" in its name to appeal to professionals and content creators. The latest model comes from Zotac and it's called the Inspire Studio set for a launch later this year. Eagle-eyed users will notice that the chassis is essentially a Magnus E series mini PC in white instead of the usual black.
Internally, the Inspire Studio will come equipped with Windows 10 Pro, a GeForce RTX 2060 Super GPU and a 9th gen 65 W octa-core Core i7 CPU that will likely be the Core i7-9700 or 9700K. Zotac is marketing the system for video editors, animators, VR developers, and other professional projects despite it having no Xeon or Quadro options.
No word yet on how much the Inspire Studio will cost or if there will be additional SKUs with the RTX 2070 Super or RTX 2080 Super. The announcements comes alongside a handful of other new and refreshed mini PCs from Zotac including the ZBox Edge for IoT environments, Magnus Super series, ZBox Nano with AMD Ryzen 3, and the VR GO backpack PC powered by GeForce RTX graphics.
