Kaby Lake ZBOX official

First, we saw them at CES, now ZOTAC's passively-cooled Kaby Lake ZBOXes are indeed coming soon. Rocking an i3-7100U or i5-7200U, the diminutive barebones feature possibly the best connectivity on nano PCs ever, with no less than five USB 3.0, two USB 3.1, DisplayPort, HDMI, and a SD card reader. Note that both models now feature dual LAN ports, which is extremely nice.

PLUS versions of the CI527 and CI547 will also be available with 4GB DDR4, a 120GB SSD, and Windows 10.

But a key question remains unanswered: what about thermals? The previous generation was clearly disappointing temperature-wise.
