Zotac ZBOX Magnus EN1070K Gaming Mini PC Review

Box and Packaging

The Box and Packaging is almost identical to the original EN1070, except of course the specs … nothing special to say about it really, apart from it’s a EN1070K model.


A Closer Look

On the front of the unit, you’ll find a built-in SD Card reader, microphone-in, audio out and 2 x USB 3.1 (one Type-A and the other Type-C). The unit is extremely compact and small (just like the original EN1070) and measures just 210mm (width) x 203mm (depth) x 62.2mm (height).

On the rear, you’ll find more USB ports … 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0 and then there’s dual Gigabit LAN, WiFi antenna connector, 2 x HDMI 2.0 and 2 x Displayport 1.3.


The Internals

Looking inside, you’ll find 2 SO-DIMM slots for DDR4-2133/2400 memory modules, M.2 connector and a standard SATA3 slot for 2.5″ hard drives.

There a couple of labels on the PCB showing the CPU type and graphics card model. In this case, we have a Core i5-7500T and a GeForce GTX 1070.

For our test, we  installed 2 x ADATA DDR4-2133 SO DIMM modules, along with a Hynix 512GB M.2 SSD of our own.


Here’s a photo of the GeForce GTX 1070 (MXM) module. It contains the actual GPU and 8 GB of GDDR5 ram.
