The ZOTAC 3 ZBOX PRO family is introduced as a new mini PC series with compact size and fully fanless design which is available in three different configurations. Each configuration defines a specific model, although they all have the same base since they start from a processor Intel Elkhart Lake low comsumption.
Using low-power processors in such compact equipment has important advantages, since it allows a good level of performance to be achieved while maintaining low working temperatures, and also minimizes generated heat and cooling needs. This ultimately makes it possible to mount these processors in fanless rigs.
All versions of the ZOTAC 3 ZBOX PRO series use a passive cooling system, which means that they are totally silent and that they are not affected by the classic problems that dust and dirt can cause in the fans.
