Featuring some of the highest profile graphics and processing in any “Steam Box” PC TV console, ZOTAC has a new item set to hit the market and it’s a beauty.
Having created what ZOTAC is calling the “birth of the next generation gaming platform”, the ZOTAC SN970 will unhook PC gaming from the desk, bringing the power of a PC and the flexibility of Steam to the living room. Building upon the success of the series of micro-PCs we saw at CES, as well as the ZBOX E-Series EN760, the SN970 will pack the heat with a high quality gaming experience designed for controllers. Featuring a discrete Nvidia GTX 970M graphics card and preloaded SteamOS and the brand new Steam Controller boxed in, the console is ready to go right out of the box.
