Zotac has shown it's latest incarnation of the Magnus Z-Box measuring in at just 2.65L. These Z-Box models use laptop components in a mini-desktop format to create some of the smallest and quietest performance PCs we've reviewed. This time, Zotac has shown the MAGNUS EN173080C with both an Intel i7-11800H 8-core CPU, and an RTX 3080 mobile GPU. That's a substantial amount of power in such a small form factor case though it does require a power brick. Regardless, it makes it a compelling option for anyone who needs a portable machine, or wants to keep their setup minimal.

Additional specs include HDMI 2.1, Thunderbolt 40Gbs, 2X PCIe NVME M.2 slots, one 2.5 inch drive pay, five USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, WiFi 6, and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

Here is the full stats:

Aren't these things basically a laptop without a screen?

It looks cool, but if it's all proprietary parts, with screw holes behind warranty-voiding tape...
