Cebit 2010: Next-gen ION

Since Fermi was scarce at CeBIT show, Zotac has decided to put its main focus around its motherboard business and has showed a rather unique and quite cute ZBOX nettop which will be available as a barebone without memory and HDD.

The new ZBOX is based on Intel Pinetrail platform and next-gen ION and will be shipped without the HDD, memory or OS, as Zotac wants to give its customers as much freedom with the configuration as possible. The specs include Intel's Pineview ATOM D510 dual-core CPU paired up with a GT218 GPU with 16 cores and 512MB of DDR3 memory.

The rest of the specs include a single SO-DIMM DDR2 memory slot, a place for 2.5-inch HDD or SSD, 6-in-1 card reader, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth and HDMI and DVI outputs. As you can see from the pictures below, the system will be cooled by a single fan that should take care of both the CPU and Nvidia's ION 2.

The new ZBOX can be used with its own stand or mounted on the back via standard VESA mount. Zotac also made sure that installing or upgrading the new ZBOX is easy, so this time you just need to unscrew the two thumbscrews and open the lid which should be quite simple for pretty much anyone.

The new ZBOX will be available pretty soon with a US $209.99 price tag.
