Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN1080K Compact Gaming PC Review


Gaming systems and small form-factor (SFF) PCs have emerged as bright spots in the desktop PC market that has been subject to severe challenges recently. Many vendors have tried to combine the two, but space constraints and power concerns have ended up limiting the gaming performance of such systems. Zotac, in particular, has been very active in this space with their ZBOX MAGNUS series. Starting with the EN980 (Intel Core i5-6400 / GTX 980), they have been on a regular release cadence – the EN1080 with an updated Pascal GPU came last year, while we are seeing the CPU upgrade to Kaby Lake in the EN1080K this year. On paper, this has resulted in a premium Kaby Lake PC that can handle the latest and greatest workloads thrown at it. Read on to find out how the unit performs in our rigorous benchmarking and evaluation process.
