Today we present another mini PC / NUC from Zotac powered by Intel Celeron J1900 Bay Trail processor. The Zotac ZBOX CI322 nano looks identical to the company’s CI321 and CI320 models, but features a different chipset under the hood.
The ZBOX CI322 nano comes in barebones and “Plus” models. The Plus version includes 8GB of RAM and a 64GB solid state drive, while the barebones version has neither. You’ll need to supply your own operating system. Both models feature DisplayPort and HDMI ports, four USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, mic and headphone jacks, a microSD card slot, and an external, adjustable antenna, support VESA mount.
Zotac ZBOX CI322 nano is a small desktop that measure about 5″ x 5″ x 1.8″ and which have low-power processor and ventilated case. Zotac’s C-series PCs to use passive cooling instead of a noisy fan.
The new ZBOX CI322 nano features Intel’s Celeron J1900 Bay Trail chip. The 10 watt quad-core processor has a higher clock-speed than the 11.5 watt dual-core Celeron 2961Y (this year the company launched a newer CI321 model with a more powerful Intel Celeron 2961Y Haswell chip), but it’s based on a different architecture.
Brad Linder writes:” Benchmarks suggest the Celeron J1900 comes out on top in tests that involve multitasking, while the Celeron 2961Y is a better chip for graphics performance. They’re both relatively low-cost, low-power chips though, so if you’re looking for bleeding edge performance, you’ll need to look elsewhere.”
