    ZOTAC International, an award-winning manufacturer of NVIDIA-based motherboards and graphics cards, today announced its high-performance mini-ITX platform – the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi – is now shipping to retailers and distributors across the globe. The ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi made its debut during the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show and received great praise and interest. Joining the power of a NVIDIA CUDA-ready GeForce 9300 graphics with socket LGA775 Intel processors into a miniature mini-ITX form factor, the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi delivers unprecedented performance to mini-ITX small form factor systems.

    The integrated GeForce 9300 graphics processor features 16 screaming-fast stream processors for high-performance in the latest DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA CUDA based 3D games and applications. If more graphics power is desired, the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi packs a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot for high-performance graphics upgrades.

    NVIDIA Hybrid SLI technology enables the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi to work with Hybrid SLI compatible PCI Express x16 graphics cards for a mild performance boost by joining the power of the motherboard GPU with the graphics card for a single high-performance graphics solution.

    “We’ve packed a lot of performance into such a small platform with the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi. With the GeForce 9300 graphics processor, PCI Express x16 slot and Hybrid SLI technology, the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi is able to keep up with larger form factor systems,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International.

    Integrated wireless 802.11b/g enables the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi to connect to home networks wirelessly without additional USB adapters or expansion cards. The integrated wireless adapter on the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi delivers speeds of up to 54Mbps with compatible home networks.

    NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology makes the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi an ideal home theater PC solution. PureVideo HD technology decodes Blu-ray and other high-definition video formats using the graphics processor, freeing up the system processor for other tasks.

    PureVideo HD technology also enhances standard definition content to near-high-definition levels of visual quality, letting users experience their existing standard-definition video collections like never before.

    “Aside from being a high-performance mini-ITX platform, the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi is also an ideal platform for home theater PCs. Pairing the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi with a low-power 45nm Intel processor, would make a low power and cool running home theater PC with wireless network connectivity,” Mr. Berger added.

    It’s time to play with the ZOTAC GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi!

    Good news :)


    If it comes in at a pricepoint closer to their 7100 and 7150 based boards than their higher models it will be a welcome addition. There's no requirement in my mind to pay $150 to get a mini-ITX board that has a decent IGP when the traces are no different for the cheap ones in some cases.

    I don't think I can resist getting one of these as soon as they go on sale. Hope the price is fair.

    Perhaps you meant Intel CPU's?

    I mean the IGP chipsets from NVidia for intel CPUs, if you look at their chart w/ the supported features, the AMD (8200/8300) support Hybrid power, yet the Intel (9300/9400) doesn't. I would love to see it support Hybrid power since this is ITX and sparkle has a low profile 9800GT out. It would make a really nice super SSF pc.

    Hybrid Power

    Hasn't Hybrid SLI been nuked? I heard rumours that they wouldn't be bringing out new cards that supported it? Hence no GTX260 etc support.

    Although the SLI part is a waste of time, the Hybrid Power bit is amazing. It literally turns off the graphics card when not in use, the only downer is the thirsty Nvidia chipset requirement.

    Some high end cards can drink 100w at IDLE! Seems crazy to be doing that whilst writing a forum post! :p


    Edit: Oh and the software makes you choose which mode you want, if you leave it in power mode for 4 mins on the desktop it will go into powersave mode so no problem but you will have to manually select power mode before launching a game. Lets hope that gets fixed cos it sucks a bit.
