ZOTAC Announces the ZBOX Pro series Embedded Computer Lineup at ISE 2019

ZOTAC Technology, a global manufacturer of innovation, is proud to expand its reach to the embedded computing market with the launch of ZBOX PRO. ZBOX PRO represents the emerging of ZOTAC's professional embedded solution that embodies high performance for commercial and industrial applications and differing business needs worldwide. The product line will make its debut appearance at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019.

ZBOX PRO re-engineers the functionality and small footprint of ZBOX Mini PCs to offer embedded product selections with more controlled tolerances. The series features a diverse range of industrial design and engineering from passive-cooled embedded computers, pint-sized display solutions to powerful workstation-class systems. Professional-grade hardware are integrated inside the durable chassis, with an array of connectivity, memory capacity and storage options provided. With up to 5 years of supply longevity, ZBOX PRO guarantees a long lifespan to provide stable and enduring service supporting your business.
"Our existing portfolio of Mini PC has made the global ZOTAC brand trusted in quality and reliability. This year we take the leap to reach another milestone with ZBOX PRO. The new product line will offer industry-leading performance and innovation for commercial and industrial applications, answering to the needs of our embedded customers around the world," says Jacky Huang, Product Director of ZOTAC Technology.

The embedded solutions of ZBOX PRO accelerate and boost efficiency in resource and data intensive applications. Professionals can optimize their workflows in a variety of scenarios; digital signage, scientific calculation, digital art creation and production, CAD rendering, CAM Engineering, retail & finance, casino and gaming, medical and healthcare, IoT gateways, AI & deep learning, video analytics, robotics and industrial control, and so much more. Available with fanless and active cooling, and a more robust design, ZBOX PRO models are ideal for varied environments.

Is it going to be a superior AMD box?
AMD doesn't have a competing CPU forthis use case.
Smaller ZBOX Pro have a frugal and cheap Celeron.
Big ZBOX has a 7700T (35W). AMD starts at 65W for desktops. Below there's just the 2500U (25W) but it's slower than that i7.

You could use a 2700u at 25W tdp (boost will be higher actual consumption but ok perf increase) and it's not even close to a contest. Laptop scores are running at 15W tdp a lot of times after thermal throttling quickly. Enough cooling to allow it to run max boost (or at least close to it) would be perfect. Double the threads at almost the same power consumption. And you get a GPU that won't suck for the applications listed.

Enough of the quad core junk, especially when the clocks aren't even good.

Well there is Ryzen 7 3750H 35W part, which should fit that perfectly. Though I'm not expecting them really use that on those higher end zbox pros, they have discrete nvidia quadro gpu in side. And I'm yet to see any Ryzen laptop/mini pc with amd Ryzen CPU/nvidia dGPU.

I may not fully understand the "not even close to a contest" part...
7700T is faster than the 2700U and the gap in single-thread performance is fairly huge.

2700U is a 4C/8T CPU just like 7700T. Just slower.

True. 3750H performance is what we're looking for. It's just a question of AMD releasing a PRO variant. We'll see.
