Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN970 Review - A Gaming mini-PC Done Right

 

In the course of our coverage of mini-PCs, we have seen offerings from vendors such as ASRock, GIGABYTE and Zotac targeting the gaming market. Usually, 'mini' doesn't fit the requirements of consumers in this space, but the appearance of...

Zotac Zbox Magnus EN970 Review and Ratings

 

One of the most potent mini-PCs on the graphics front, the Magnus is well-outfitted for serious play on a single 1080p monitor or HDTV, and it fits nicely in an A/V rack with your set-top boxes and consoles.

Desktop-grade graphics in a surprisingly compact chassis ; Room for three drives (two 2.5-inch, one M.2) ; Four video outputs

Pricey once fully outfitted ; Slightly underpowered CPU

The Zbox Magnus EN970 is a bit of a conundrum. You can get some pretty potent graphical performance in a small box with this unit, certainly enough to justify its premium price.

Zotac is mostly known for its wide range of Graphics cards. In this review we take a look at somethi Its a powerful Mini PC with AMD Ryzen 5 processor and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics. Worth the £699?

Small form factor but powerful.

Noisy under load.

Robust but watch the temps

 

Overall the small form factor and the surprising gaming performance makes this thing pretty awesome. And I do like the fact that you can run a RAID setup for even faster storage performance if you need. The temps it runs depends on the user if it's...

This thing is small, highly versatile, and looks great too. I primarily have it set up for use as a portable gaming PC and it handles just about anything I throw at it pretty reasonably. (Mostly LAN games like Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, League of Legends,...

Heat...this thing gets hot! I suppose technically it stays within safe temps but it gets way too hot for my liking. Typically around idle the CPU can clock up to around 40C, while the GPU sits around 45C, but under light to moderate loads things heat...

Great mini PC, great delivery service!

 

The card reader was a nice touch. I'm not sure how much use he will get out of it but at least for me it seems that I never have one or have lost mine whenever I need one… The newegg delivery driver really impressed me and boosted my review to full 5...

Bought this machine for my brother who needed a computer for college but didn’t really have the space for a full tower (dorms). I originally stumbled on this when browsing through the TwitchCon store but they were out of stock at the time so I ended up...

At this price point I wish that memory and storage would be included but I guess it’s not that big of a deal since I usually swap out the included RAM/HDD with something better.
