Mini PC manufacturers are starting to offer customized systems for a large variety of tasks. Gaming and media center mini PCs are usually the most popular, but new models aimed at content creators and video editors are also trending these days. As one of the premiere mini PC makers on the market, Zotac is updating its Magnus E mini PC series with more powerful CPUs and GPUs to meet the increasing demands of media creators.
The new Magnus E series comes with slightly smaller cases and includes a more affordable EN52060V model powered by the Intel Core i5-9300H quad-core CPU coupled with an RTX 2060 GPU from Nvidia, whereas the more expensive EN72070V model integrates a Core i7-9750H hexa-core CPU coupled with an RTX 2070 GPU. Zotac offers both models as barebone kits without RAM and storage, letting users add up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM via 2 SODIMM slots and customize the storage combo with one 2.5-inch HDD and an M.2 PCIe Gen 3 X4 NVMe SSD.
