Gaming PCs are largely known for being huge, garish LED-studded machines. But as Zotac's new Zbox Magnus EN1070K shows, that doesn’t have to be the case.

Announced earlier this month at CES 2017 and reported by AnandTech, the Magnus EN1070K is the latest entry in the Zotac E-series of miniature desktop computers, and measures in with a tiny footprint of 8.27 x 7.9 inches (or a little bigger than a Mac Mini). But it packs some serious firepower into the small size, offering a current-generation Intel Kaby Lake Core i5 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, up to 32GB of RAM, and both an M.2 SSD slot and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay for internal storage.

The Magnus EN1070K is no slouch when it comes to ports either, somehow cramming two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, a USB-C port, an SD card slot, two Ethernet ports, two HDMI ports, and two DisplayPorts into the diminutive form factor.

Zotac isn't listing an exact price or release date for the Magnus EN1070K, but based on the previous $1,500 Skylake-equipped model, it'll likely cost somewhere in a similar price range (depending on hard drive, SSD, and RAM configuration, of course).
