Zotac Zbox MA760 Has Quad Cores, Quad DisplayPorts

Zotac, well known by now for its lineup of tiny barebone PCs, has announced its Zbox MA760, wrapping AMD's latest and quickest mobile APU and a healthy amount of expandability into a 7.4 x 7.4" square. Most notable among its features are four DisplayPort video outputs, letting the thing drive four HD monitors at once if a user so desires to.

 

 

Lurking inside is AMD's FX-7600P chip, which totes four CPU cores running at up to 3.6Ghz, next to a 512-shader Radeon R7 IGP at 686Mhz. Zotac provides dual SO-DIMM memory slots, good for up to 16GB of RAM, and a 2.5" drive bay; as usual, buying the Plus variant Zbox gets you 4GB of RAM and a 500GB HDD, though you'll still have to bring your own OS.

 

 

Besides the four DisplayPorts, the Zbox MA760 offers a total of four USB 3.0 ports, dual gigabit Ethernet jacks, headphone and microphone jacks; an SDXC card reader, and, interestingly, an RS232 serial port. The Zbox also supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0; and there's a Consumer IR diode on the front.

 

 

 

The whole 7.4 x 7.4 x 2" thing is powered just by an AC adapter, and a VESA mount in-box lets you hang it on the back of a compliant monitor. It's unclear when Zotac will begin shipping to retailers, but, knowing the firm, the usual cachet of big online stores (Amazon et al) should be the ones to deliver the goods.
