Zotac is back with a bunch of new small form factor desktop computers, these ones being in the new C-series nano product lineup. The machines were debuted at Computex 2014, and bring with them both AMD and Intel Core and Celeron processor options.
Not that the mini-PC market was going anywhere, but CyberPowerPC's entry into the ranks this week just goes to show - there's more than enough room for another super-small gaming desktop machine out there. Here we're seeing the CyberPowerPC Zeus Mini, a tiny tower that still manages to jam in the likes of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 or an AMD R9 290. It'll be coming your way in black with green or red lighting, too!
With the release of HP's next-generation workstations in the HP Z230 Tower and SFF, the company brings a combination of compact bodies and energy efficient constructs to keep them current in today's business environment. The HP Z230 comes in two main configurations, both of them with a set of possible configurations therein. Both units are being pushed at the same time as a series of Z Displays that'll compliment their next-generation abilities.
Small Form Factor or "SFF" computers are a boon to businesses thanks to their low volume and power requirements. HP is hoping for some corporate dollars with the Compaq Pro 4300 model SFF PC. Its options include both 2nd and 3rd-generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core processors, a media card reader and hard drives up to a full terrabyte in size or a 256GB SSD.
VIA has pulled the covers back to show off its tiny little ARTiGO A1150 dual-core PC kit for the enthusiasts out there looking for a tiny chassis to fit on a desk or in an entertainment system. The A1150 is a sub-liter machine that uses a VIA 1GHz dual-core Eden X2 processor and has HD video support. The video outputs on the back include VGA and HDMI.
Shuttle has been around for years and years with some really cool small form factor computers that allow users to save space on their desktop and still use the normal monitor they already have. The latest computer in the SFF series from Shuttle is called the H3 6700P and this machine is aimed at professional users.
While ultra-compact nettops have been around for some time now, they're still yet to revolutionize the HTPC market as we were initially promised. Hoping to change all that is Lenovo with their new IdeaCentre Q150, packing NVIDIA's Ion 2 GPU paired with a low-power Intel Atom CPU. Lenovo say it's good for 1080p HD; does the real-world experience live up to the spec sheet? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
