ZOTAC Technology, a global manufacturer of innovation, today announced the launch of the super-compact gaming desktop, MEK MINI. Boasting a mere 9.18 liter, MEK MINI packs an Intel Core i7 processor, a discrete ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX graphics card, and SPECTRA 2.0 lighting system.

Utilizing over 12 years of design and engineering expertise, ZOTAC has been pioneering its way with many things MINI. First with the ZBOX Mini PC ranging from impossibly small to ones capable of rivaling desktops, secondly with MINI graphics cards that still retain the potent power and performance of larger sized ones, and now ZOTAC has set its sight on the Gaming PC segment with the small and strong MEK MINI.



MEK MINI measures at a super compact 10.27in x 5.35in x 10.19in (260.8mm x 136mm x 258.8mm). A user can comfortably pack it into a backpack with room to spare and transform its next destination into an all-out battle station. The light weight and travel-friendly design allows it to be used in incredibly diverse environments - in LAN parties, eSports competitions, public demonstrations, at work or at home - perfect for gamers who want to enjoy high-end gaming no matter where they are. And MEK MINI is ready to go with its bundled* ten-keyless (TKL) LED-lit mechanical gaming keyboard and LED-lit optical gaming mouse with an adjustable DPI setting for the perfect mouse control.

MEK MINI packs in a six-core Intel Core i7 processor to command in gaming, game creation, or diving into new realities. The system is further equipped with future fast technologies including 16GB DDR4 dual-channel memory, a fast 240GB NVMe M.2 SSD backed by an additional 2TB HDD, and fast Killer Gigabit Ethernet and Killer Wireless technology to deliver the fastest and most reliable connection on both wires and wireless in which gaming, video, and audio take priority.

MEK MINI taps into the power of the all-new ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards powered by the NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture. With the 8GB of GDDR6 ultra-fast memory and revolutionary RTX platform, the advanced graphics engine powers through the most demanding games today while supporting games featuring real-time ray-tracing and DLSS AI enhanced graphics.

ZOTAC takes noise and temperatures seriously. MEK MINI is designed with 360 degrees of ventilation, a whisper quiet cooling profile and a bottom up airflow design to ensure a balance of powerful performance, controlled temperatures, and low noise.

MEK MINI packs on the RGB with a full front fascia equipped with powerful addressable LEDs. Utilize the SPECTRA software to customize the lighting effects with 13 provided lighting modes and support for a wide spectrum of colors.

Why make a compact case and then add a crapload of useless plastic shroud all around it?!

Meh, indeed.

Also, they really gotta stop giving us 'renders' instead of actual product pictures. Its misleading.

They have to make sure you overlook the fact that the machine is, in reality, not that great for anything other than general everyday stuff :fear:

Good lord that's an ugly case. If they had just stuck to a regular rectangular box with some LED highlights, this could have been a cool product. I wouldn't wish that case on my worst enemy.
