Here is an interesting offering for those looking for a particular all-in-one approach. Chinese professional design and manufacturing company Zeal has created a unique motherboard. The folks over at Tom’s spotted this one on Zeal’s website the other day. Zeal has been manufacturing embedded solutions since 2012. It tends to focus on custom sizes such as Mini-ITX and Nano-ITX form factors. Its primary customer bases are usually point of sales, network security, banking, and industrial applications. On its company profile page, it proclaims “wisdom, innovation, integrity, quality” as its enterprise spirit. This latest embedded solution is not the first combination of Intel and NVIDIA, either.

Meet the ZA-KB1650 motherboard. It is a bit unusual but offers a lot in terms of enterprise and, perhaps, modest gaming needs. The size is listed as 234.95 mm x 197.48, putting it at around a Micro ATX form factor. By using the Intel H310C chipset, it is able to use Intel 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th generation processors ranging from i3 to i7 designs. You could also pair up to 32 GB of DDR4 2133 MHz memory. Factor in the 4 GB, Turing-based GTX 1650 that supports three-way display output, and this little board can pack a punch. You could even include an M.2 SSD for fast storage.

Zeal has made something like this before. Previously, it had embedded an NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti. The GPUs are soldered to the board, so upgrading is not an option. Overclocking anything is unlikely as well due to the limited power delivery. However, by offering such solutions, a wide array of potential uses becomes available. While many look to other micro-sized based integrations using Raspberry Pi boards, something like this can allow a more conventional application for more powerful hardware.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
