Particularly interested in the last period in combining power and portability, the Chinese brand Zotac, after the announcement of the VR Go 4.0 backpack-pc, also presented the ZBOX QTG7A4500 workstation which, in dimensions equal to those of an Xbox Series S, includes a professional-grade GPU.

Suitable for graphic design, video editing, gaming and 3D viewing applications, the compact ZBOX QTG7A4500 computer – albeit very compact (at a size of 210.82 × 203.2 × 63.5 mm, for 2.65 liters of volume) does not give up on anything: on the sides and back (but not in front) there are ventilation grilles that interact with a fan and a heat sink. The ports are also by no means few.

In this sense, the manufacturer has prepared a Type-C for Thunderbolt 4, two 3.5 mm jacks (microphone input and audio output), two DisplayPort 1.4a and two HDMI 2.1 to connect 4 monitors (in 4K @ 120Hz or 8K @ 60Hz), one SDXC mnemonic card reader, two RJ45s (Gigabit and 2.5 Gbps), and 5 USB 3.2 1st generation.

There is no lack of space for the two antennas, which interact with the AX1650 wireless connectivity card (Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax / 6). A processor of the Tiger Lake family (compared to the more recent Alder Lake) of the 11th generation Intel, from 45W of TDP, the octacore (4.6 GHz maximum) to 16 threads i7-11800H interacts, via 320 bit bus, with a card dedicated graphics from Nvidia, the RTX A4500 with 56 RT cores, 7,164 CUDA cores, 7,164 CUDA cores, 16 GB of GDDR6 memory.

For RAM (DDR4-3200) two SODIMM slots are available, for a total of 64 GB, while the storage can count on a PCIe 4.0 x4 slot for an M.2 SSD, on an M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 slot for an Intel Optane memory accelerator or SSD, and on a 2.5-inch bay. For the miniPC ZBOX QTG7A4500, equipped with external power supply, the manufacturer has not communicated the terms of distribution (markets and date of availability) nor the price which, presumably, will not be cheap.
