ZOTAC released today a new series for its ZOTAC Mini PC line called the MAGNUS E Series.

The new MAGNUS E Series Mini PC is designed for gamers, content creators and prosumers.

The MAGNUS is geared for performance while keeping a very compact size.

How compact and powerful? Let’s take a closer look.

The new MAGNUS E Series Mini PC is powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8400T. With 6-cores at 1.7Ghz which can boost up to 3.3Ghz giving the MAGNUS the power to perform.

The Intel i5-8400T however doesn’t support hyper-threading, so each core will only process a single thread.

I’d wished ZOTAC would release a version of the MAGNUS with an Intel Core i7-8700T. This would have given the MAGNUS a more powerful processor that is paired with the new RTX graphics card.

Speaking of graphics card, this mini pc will be sporting the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2070. Yes, the RTX 2070, a powerful graphics card than can play well with Ray Tracing enabled.

With such a powerful graphics card, you would have wanted to pair it up with a suitably powerful processor.

But in any case, I’d love to test this baby out and put it into a test if ZOTAC would lend me one.

Previous ZOTAC MAGNUS Series Mini PC are available also in Amazon.

And these include the ZOTAC MAGNUS EK71080, powered by an Intel i7-7700HQ and a GeForce GTX 1080.

The ZOTAC MAGNUS EN1080K, a liquid-cooled gaming mini-pc with an Intel i7-7700 and a GeForce GTX 1080.

If you’re a bit tight on budget, then the ZOTAC MAGNUS EN1070K will be your best buy. As it is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card.

Premium features

Aside from having the RTX 2070 graphics card the MAGNUS will have premium connectivity features.

The MAGNUS can support up to 4 displays through an HDMI 2.0 port, three DisplayPort 1.4, and DVi-D port. And all these thanks to the RTX 2070.

And with the MAGNUS, you’ll get six USB 3.1 Gen2 ports with one of them a USB Type-C port at the front.

Connecting online wouldn’t be a problem as the MAGNUS has two Gigabit Ethernet ports powered by the ZOTAC Killer Ethernet. For wireless connections, the MAGNUS is equipped with the dual-antenna Killer Wireless AC-1550 and Bluetooth 5.

Storage options are wide-ranged, there’s space for one 2.5 inch HDD/SSD and an M.2 NVMe PCIE port that is also compatible with the Intel Optane memory.

For its main memory, the MAGNUS can support up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 via its two SODIMM slots.

Powering this small beast of a PC is a 330W power brick and when we mean small, it really is. The MAGNUS dimensions are just 225mm x 203mm x 128mm.

No weight information but I would expect around 10 kilograms, maybe? I’ll leave that once I get a hold of it.

I’d love to have this as my main computer paired with my laptop. As I frequently travel, I would love to have this and just set it up at the hotel room.

Is the ZOTAC MAGNUS E Series Mini PC for you?

Yes, undoubtedly, as it has many uses.

It can be your home entertainment PC at your living room or game room. You can have this as your travel PC if you don’t have or want a gaming laptop.

Heck, you can even have this as your main gaming PC if your the minimalist type.

But I would wished that ZOTAC would have a version of the MAGNUS E Series that will be powered by an Intel i7-8700T.

Yes, it might need a much heftier cooling solution but I think they already have the solutions for it. As ZOTAC designs and manufactures one of the best graphics card in the market, it already has the solutions for cooling the i7-8700T.
