Liliputing reports that Zotac has released two new ultra-thin PCs, the ZBOX Edge MI648 and MI668, both equipped with Raptor Lake-P chips. The ZBOX Edge MI668 is a compact computer measuring 149.5 x 149.5 x 28.5mm and features a 28-watt Intel Core i7-1360P processor with support for up to 64GB of DDR5 memory. The ZBOX Edge MI648, on the other hand, comes with an Intel Core i5-1340P processor and offers similar features.
Both models include two SODIMM slots for DDR5 5200 MHz or 4800 MHz memory and two M.2 slots for storage. The ports available on the PCs include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The computers feature a fan for active cooling, but the chassis has a honeycomb-style vent for heat dissipation, making them “whisper quiet.” The 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports could make it interesting for a variety of networking applications.
Zotac has not yet announced pricing and availability details for both models. For those looking for a silent computer, Zotac has also introduced the ZBOX Edge CI343, a fanless PC with an Intel Processor N100 chip, although it offers lower performance compared to the MI648 and MI668 models.
