When we first walked up to the Zotac booth, we noticed a large display with a few motherboards set up on the table, as well as some more motherboards posted up on the wall alongside some video cards. The motherboard that was on display on the table was its H67-ITX WiFi. This motherboard has the Intel H67 express chipset installed on it and has support for the LGA1155 socket, all on a mini-ITX form factor board. You are also going to get support for two DDR3-1066/1333 memory sticks with support for up to 16GB (2x8GB) capacity. There is one PCI-Express x16 slot on the board, as well as a mini PCI-Express slot that is used by the WiFi module. For outputs, it has HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort which are powered by the Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 with DX 10 support. On the wall behind the H67-ITX WiFi were a whole bunch of different motherboards showcased, including (from top left to right) the H67-ITX built-in GT430, H67ITX-A-E, M880G-ITX, IONITX-S-E, IONITX-P-E, and IONITX-U-E. The video cards that were displayed on the wall were the GTX580 AMP! Edition, GTX570 AMP! Edition, GTX470 AMP! Edition, GTS450 AMP! Edition, GTX460 AMP! Edition and the GTX460 2GB. The AMP! Edition cards are all factory-overclocked to give you even better performance than you would find in a stock card.
Zotac was displaying its Quadruple-Display Gaming System as well. This system has the Zotac GeForce GTX460 3DP 1GB card installed, which has three DisplayPort and one DVI connection on the back of the card and is capable of powering four Alienware 3D Monitors. The GPU is clocked in at 710MHz, has 336 CUDA cores, and has 1GB GDR5 memory clocked in at 3600MHz.
Zotac was also displaying two of its ZBOX systems, the ZBOX with Fermion, which we did not get much information about and the ZBOX DVD ID31 PLUS. The ZBOX DVD ID31 PLUS has an NVIDIA ION GPU with 512MB DDR3, the Intel Atom D525 (1.80 GHz dual-core) processor installed, an integrated 8x DVD+R/RW drive, 2GB DDR2-800, 250GB 2.5" SATA 3.0 HDD/SSD, one USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports and an eSATA port. It also has a 6-in-1 Memory Card Reader, 802.11n WiFi, and a Gigabit LAN connector.
