It seems everyone and their uncle was on the hunt for a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card when it launched to retail last week, and unfortunately, there was just not enough supply to go around. Scalpers looking to make a quick buck made sure of that. Making matters worse, at least one of NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners accepted way more orders than it has inventory to fulfill, and may have to cancel some of them. That board partner is Zotac, which explained in a now-deleted Twitter post (according to Videocardz) that some unknown error resulted in it accepting close to 20,000 pre-orders for its GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity model. "Almost 20,000 pre-orders have been received and, with the best of... Read more...
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 20 Series of graphics cards have ruled the roost when it comes to PC gaming performance for roughly two years now. But with the arrival of the new GeForce RTX 30 Series (Ampere), the performance torch is about to be passed to a new breed of GPU monsters. Given that the GeForce RTX 3080 is twice as fast as the old GeForce RTX 2080 at $699, while the GeForce RTX 3070 is faster than the previous flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at less than half the price ($499), there is sure to be some reshuffling when it comes to pricing for these elder Turing-based graphics cards. Luckily, we’re seeing the first movement on the pricing front for the... Read more...
What is fast becoming the worst kept secret in tech is the pending launch of a GeForce GTX 1660 Super model. NVIDIA has not yet officially announced any such product, but the leaks keep coming. The latest one is a series of what look to be official press renders of a couple Zotac brand SKUs. We will get to those in a moment, but first let's discuss the Super brand. NVIDIA refreshed its higher end Turing cards with Super models shortly before AMD launched its Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 cards. So far there are three Super SKUs. They include... GeForce RTX 2080 Super GeForce RTX 2070 Super GeForce RTX 2060 Super There has been plenty of chatter pointing to NVIDIA refreshing other Turing... Read more...
Zotac, a company that knows a thing or three about putting big things into small packages, is upgrading its Mek Mini gaming PCs with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Super and GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics cards, both of which sit shotgun to a 9th generation Intel Core processor (or is it the other way around?). Intel and NVIDIA can debate if the processor or graphics card is the one that sits shotgun. Either way, these are high end configurations in a small package that Zotac is offering. It's Mek Mini PCs are compact systems that check in at just 9.18 liters. In terms of the footprint, the chassis measures 10.27 x 5.35 x 10.19 inches. As Zotac notes, that is small enough to "comfortably pack into... Read more...
Earlier today, we presented you with our review of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super. You can think of both cards as a preemptive strike against the yet-to-be-released Radeon RX 5700, Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition.  Although we suggest that you read our review to get a full idea of how the new Super cards perform, there should probably be some cause for concern from the AMD camp. With that being said, the first round of cards from NVIDIA's OEM partners have been announced, and should be hitting store shelves within the next few weeks. This afternoon, we have entries from EVGA, MSI and Zotac. You should already be familiar... Read more...
In case you haven't been keeping up with all things Turing, NVIDIA is reportedly set to announce a new budget graphics card this week. Called the GeForce GTX 1650, this new SKU will sit at the very bottom of NVIDIA's Turing graphics card lineup. With an official launch eminent, it should come as no surprise that retail cards are beginning to leak out of the woodwork. In this case, VideoCardz has unearthed a whole slew of new GeForce GTX 1650 cards from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and Zotac. Here's the rundown of the latest bach of cards that have been leaked: ASUS GeForce GTX 1650 Dual OC GeForce GTX 1650 Phoenix OC GeForce GTX 1650 ROG Strix OC Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Gaming OC GeForce...

At this point, there’s no question that NVIDIA is releasing a new entry-level variant of its GeForce GTX Turing family of desktop graphics cards. Earlier this year, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, and then soon followed up with the GeForce GTX 1660. The final piece to the puzzle, the GeForce GTX 1650, will be released before the end of the month. Luckily for us, we’re already getting an early glimpse at what production desktop cards will look like courtesy of a leak from Zotac. In this case, we’re seeing the Zotac Gaming GeForce GTX 1650, which comes with a total of 4GB of GDDR5 memory onboard. We see an incredibly short PCB with a single fan along with HDMI,...

The only thing getting leaked more often than Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup (which launches today) is NVIDIA's rumored GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. Well, technically it is a rumored model, but it seems pretty clear it exists at this point. Adding to the list of leaks is yet another set of press renders depicting the unannounced card. In addition to various others that we have seen so far, Zotac is also readying a couple of new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti cards, a Twin Fan edition and an Amp model. Both cards feature a Turing GPU underneath the hood, though it's presumably a new version that lacks RT cores and Tensor cores, hence the GTX designation instead of RTX. It's said the Amp edition uses a... Read more...
Zotac rarely misses an opportunity to crank out a new mini PC, and so it is no surprise that its newest model, the Magnus EC52070D, pairs an 8th generation Intel Core processor with NVIDIA's newfangled GeForce RTX 2070 based on Turing. The end result is a miniature box that punches above its weight class. We have not tested this particular model, though we have played around with several previous generation Zbox machines. It always amazes us the level of power that can be crammed into a comparatively small chassis. In this case, the Magnus measures 8.86 (L) x 7.99 (W) by 5.04 (H) inches. It's not Zotac's tiniest enclosure, but is certainly dwarfed by traditional desktop towers, even compact ones.... Read more...
Evidence is mounting that NVIDIA is getting ready add another model to its GeForce RTX series of graphics cards, and specifically the GeForce RTX 2060. While we can't say for sure if that is going to happen, it certainly seems likely at this point, based on the number of leaks and rumors. The latest bit of evidence is a leaked batch of Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 marketing materials. Image Source: Zotac via HD Tecnologia It looks as though Zotac is readying at least two versions—the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Amp and Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan. Interestingly, the leaked images look identical to each other. Both show a shortened graphics card for small form factor (SFF) builds,... Read more...
It's been a couple of weeks since NVIDIA officially launched its GeForce RTX graphics cards based on its Turing architecture with real-time ray tracing and other goodies. Since then, there have been a bunch of custom cooled variants emerge from NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners. Two of the newest ones come from Zotac. They include the GeForce RTX 2080 AMP Extreme and GeForce RTX 2080 AMP Extreme Core. In lieu of an official announcement trumpeting their arrival, Zotac went and updated its website with product pages for both cards. Unfortunately, the company is not sharing GPU clockspeeds at the moment. However, we know from past iterations that the Extreme model will be the faster of the two.... Read more...
NVIDIA just dropped a massive bombshell on the gaming community with its GeForce RTX family of products, which include the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. If you want to know more about the Turing architecture that underpins these cards and about their ray-tracing performance, we suggest you check out our two previous articles on the Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX announcements, but here's a quick refresher on what separates the three: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 CUDA cores, 1545MHz boost clock, 11GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2080:     2944 CUDA cores, 1710MHz boost clock, 8GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2070:     2304 CUDA cores, 1620MHz boost...

There's really little left for NVIDIA (and its partners) to surprise us with at Monday's special GeForce-centric Gamescom event. Over the past few days, there have been numerous leaks regarding NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 and the even more powerful GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. At this point, these are the confirmed specs that we have for the PNY versions of the two high-end gaming cards: So far, two MSI GeForce RTX families have leaked along with cards from Palit and PNY. Not to be left out, we now can bring you images and details of cards from ASUS, EVGA and Zotac. First off, here's what ASUS has to offer: ASUS has at least three confirmed... Read more...

It is very likely that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will be the final Pascal-based desktop GPU to arrive for gamers, before next-generation architectures hit the scene in the not too distant future. As most of you probably know, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti targets enthusiasts and hardcore gamers and is positioned in the narrow gap between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080. We took an extended look at NVIDIA’s Founders Edition card in our launch coverage. But here we’re turning our gaze toward a couple custom variants from Zotac and ASUS. In this piece we're pitting the Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Ti AMP Extreme Edition against the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070 Ti. Each card features the... Read more...
Zotac is arguably the king of the hill when it comes to mini PCs and small form factor (SFF) computing, especially when you throw gaming into the mix. The company offers an extensive line of potent, pint-sized setups, some of which were on full display at the Consumer Electronics Show. But Zotac also dazzled passersby with some full-fledged custom gaming PCs and a really neat Destiny 2 case mod. It was an interesting way to show off its gear, and we make sure to take plenty of photos. We are kicking things off with the Destiny 2 case mod because, quite frankly, who doesn't appreciate a modded enclosure? Granted, case modding is out of Zotac's wheel house (and so are cases in general, at least... Read more...
Now that more systems are launching with Thunderbolt 3 ports, gaming hardware companies are releasing new product to take advantage of the high-speed connection. ZOTAC is the latest prominent hardware manufacturer to enter the fray with two new external GPU (eGPU) enclosures that can accommodate the latest flagship enthusiast graphics cards from AMD and NVIDIA. The regular AMP BOX measures 5.8" x 10.1" x 10.7" (WxLxH) and can accommodate a dual-slot graphics card up to 9 inches in length with a maximum TDP of 250 watts. The AMP BOX MINI is smaller still, coming in at 3.9" x 7.2" x 9.1" (WxLxH), and can accommodate cards rated at up to 150 watts. Those specifications mean the standard AMP BOX... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on a rumor of forthcoming GT 1030 graphics cards from NVIDIA, and this week, their existence has been confirmed. Its launch creates a new battle: Radeon RX 550 vs. GeForce GT 1030, although based on the specs alone, it looks like the RX 500 is going to come ahead (but its price will scale). The rumor leading up to the launch of the GT 1030 showed that the card could come equipped with either 384 or 512 CUDA cores, but based on the models available right now, it appears that the variant with 384 CUDA cores is going to be more common. At this point, we can't find a 512 core version of the card available, so it could become exclusive for OEM use like some other... Read more...
There is a relatively new product category gaining steam. It's the gaming backpack for VR, which is essentially a desktop configuration that you strap to your back while wearing a tethered VR headset such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. These aren't wimpy systems, either. Zotac's recently announced VR Go sports a Core i7-6700T quad-core processor paired with a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, and it's now available to purchase for $2,000.Zotac unveiled its burly VR Go backpack earlier this week but neglected to mention a price or when it would be available. Well, it's now showing up on Amazon, albeit it's listed as being temporarily out of stock. We added one to our virtual cart a Prime member and... Read more...
Hot on the heels of debut of the MSI VR One gaming backpack comes a similar product from Zotac. The Zotac VR GO uses the same “PC backpack” concept as MSI, giving gamers an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA Pascal power for unencumbered virtual reality gaming. In this case, you’ll find a quad-core Core i7-6700T (Skylake) processor paired with up to 32GB of RAM (16GB is preinstalled) along with a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. Storage duties are handled by a 240GB M.2 SATA SSD and you’ll be greeted by an abundance of ports (six USB 3.0, dual GbE, three HDMI 2.0, two DisplayPort, 3-in-1 media reader). Other features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a thermal design that “directs system... Read more...
At this point, we’re sure you’re all aware of the goodness that is NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and the GeForce GTX 10 series that is built around an array of Pascal-based GPUs. If you’re not – shame on you – you’ve been slacking on your tech homework and we order you to check out our coverage of Pascal and the GeForce GTX 10 series, in enthusiast, mainstream, and mobile flavors. Heck, check out this round-up too, while you’re at it. What you’ll find, after you finish your reading assignments, is that NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GPUs are efficient and relatively power friendly, including the monstrous Titan X, so they don’t need...

Manufacturers are increasingly putting incredibly potent GPUs into smaller enclosures, as witnessed by gaming notebooks from Razer and Alienware. But that trend is also extending to small form-factor PCs as well, with Zotac announcing the first mini gaming PC with AMD Polaris courtesy of an AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card with 4GB GDDR5 memory: the MAGNUS ERX480. In addition to the virtual reality prowess made possible by the Radeon RX 480, the machine of course supports native 4K display output and can handle up to four displays at once. The processor at center stage is a quad-core Intel Skylake-based Core i5-6400T which operates at 2.2GHz and can Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz. The MAGNUS ERX480... Read more...
