Hardcore gamers spend thousands of dollars on powerful, premium systems and there are many great choices for games with high-quality graphics. In the past year, less known computer hardware manufacturers have focused on mini PCs that pack Polaris graphics. Zotan goes another route in releasing a new device named Magnus ERX480 that’s VR ready and equipped with an AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card.

The price of the Magnus ERX480 hasn’t been announced yet, but it is known that the mini PC measures 8.27 x 7.99 x 2.45 inches, as big as a standard Intel NUC system. The box is very light and has enough space inside to house Polaris’ AMD Radeon RX480 graphics card backed by 256-bit 4GB GDDR5, which won’t get very hot because Zotac has two powerful radial fans along with a smart thermal design that doesn’t take too much space. Also, the Magnus ERX480 is powered by an Intel Core i5-6400T (quad-core, 2.2 GHz, up to 2.8 GHz) processor, supports VR gaming and up to four displays (4K output at 60Hz via DisplayPort 1.3 and HDMI 2.0). In addition, it connects via Bluetooth 4.2/802.11ac/b/g/n/Dual Gigabit LA.

There is also a Windows 10 variant and a Plus model with 8GB DDR4 RAM, 120GB M.2 SSD, and 1TB of storage. Both of them are powered by the same processor and offer two SO-DIMM slots with up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 memory, 2.5-inch SATA 6Gbps and M.2 SATA slots, as well as a 3-in-1 memory card slot.

The Magnus ERX480 offers separate microphone and headphone ports, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 3.1 ports for Type-C and Type-A, two USB 2.0 ports and dual GbE LAN. It isn’t known how much it will cost, but it will be relatively more expensive than the Magnus EN1060 with a GeForce GTX 1060 GPU and Core i5-6400T processor that’s available for $1,000.
