Zotac MEK MINI and MEK Ultra Gaming Desktop PC

Following in the footstep of last year’s success with the premier gaming desktop MEK1, ZOTAC GAMING introduces two groundbreaking newcomers of the gaming PC series – MEK MINI and MEK ULTRA.

At half the size and lighter in weight than the MEK1 gaming desktop, MEK MINI brings even more gaming performance. Its ultra-compact design makes the mini desktop a powerful portable gaming system for eSports and intense gaming. The 8th Gen Intel® processor and the discrete ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics card inside it are in isolated zones to keep a low temperature for optimized performance. Adding in the fact that the desktop is equipped with gaming-grade Killer networking hardware, a fast 32GB Intel Optane memory and stunning SPECTRA with ARGB Lighting, MEK MINI is one of the most potent compact gaming desktops available today.

For the ultimate in gaming performance, MEK ULTRA is the highest caliber addition to the MEK Gaming PC Series. The gaming machine houses top-tier hardware that can run today’s and future’s games at their highest possible performance. MEK ULTRA also features the next-gen SPECTRA Lighting with ARGB.
