ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan Review

We would like to thank ZOTAC for providing us with a review sample of their ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan while attending CES. Without their on the spot generosity, this graphics card review would not be possible. With CES 2019 behind us and having just recently reviewed ZOTAC’s GeForce RTX 2070 Mini, we’re very pleased to get our hands on the new ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan. In our RTX 2070 Mini review, we reported that the $530 card was a far better price:performance option than the $1200 RTX 2080 TI (reviewed here) and while it was true then, it’s …

CES 2019: Zotac

First up at CES 2019, we visited Zotac! Well known for their Mini series of cards, as well as some impressively powerful SFF systems, let’s see what they had on display this year. Most of the products shown below will be available Q1 2019. The Magnus range has been updated with the new 2000 series NVIDIA GPUs. This beasty in particular holds within a RTX 2070 8GB GPU. Nice.   The bigger brother. Same GPU, but a faster processor.   And for the pros, a Quadro P5000 + Xeon variant!   The strong silent type, according to Zotac.   The …

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 Mini Review

We would like to thank ZOTAC for providing us with a review sample of their ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 Mini. Without their generosity, this graphics card review would not be possible. Fresh off the heels of our NVIDIA 2080 Ti review, ZOTAC has provided us with their ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 Mini. This GPU is perfect for those who don’t need as much horsepower, are using something like an HDPlex PSU, desire a short(er) length GPU, or perhaps want to buy something with a much better price to performance ratio. Below are a few resources that ZOTAC was kind enough to provide for …

Zotac at CES 2018

After perusing the Silverstone booth, our team at CES 2018 made their way to the booth of another one of the core SFF proponents in the industry – Zotac. Long time Mini PC manufacturer, Zotac is one of those companies we like to keep an eye on.   Calipers handy, let’s go! The AMP Box Mini is an eGPU enclosure for “ITX” sized graphics cards as well as a PCIe SSD. More my style, the P3000 Workstation is a tiny system aimed at professional use, with an NVIDIA Quadro GPU and an Intel i5-7500T CPu. The P5000, the big brother …

ZOTAC at Computex 2017 – Small Prebuilts and VR Galore!

ZOTAC, one of the originators in the Mini-ITX and SFF world, was present at Computex 2017 showing off a few small PCs, a small(ish) eGPU case, some VR stuff, and the next iteration of the GTX 1080 Mini that Drew reviewed earlier this year – the ZOTAC GTX 1080 Ti! Yes, that is the exact cooler as on the GTX 1080 Mini that Drew guessed was possibly capable of handling the GTX 1080 Ti! Underneath the identical shroud sits a different PCB though – with beefier VRMs to cope with the more powerful GPU. Dual 8-pin power connectors are a hint …

ZOTAC announces two GTX 1080 Ti Mini’s!

Not that long ago we reviewed ZOTAC’s GTX 1080 Mini, which set a new bar for SFF GPU horsepower, yet now they’ve outdone themselves by cramming the even beefier GTX 1080 Ti into the same form factor! TechPowerUP has more details, but from the renders we can glean that this new model uses the same heatsink and shroud as the GTX 1080 Mini, so the overall dimensions should be the same at 211mm x 125mm. If the renders are accurate (keep in mind the renders should be taken with a grain of salt), the PCB extends a bit farther on the GTX 1080 …

An In Depth Review of the ZOTAC 1080 Mini

We would like to thank ZOTAC for providing us with a review sample of their ZOTAC 1080 Mini. Without their generosity, this graphics card review would not be possible. Originally announced back in December of 2016, showcased at CES, and then released in January, the ZOTAC 1080 Mini is the veritable King of graphics cards among SFF enthusiasts. At present, there doesn’t exist a single more powerful GPU capable of fitting into the some of the smallest chassis around.

Spotted: Zotac GTX 1050 Mini and GTX 1050 TI Mini

Keeping a low profile is important for keeping the people watching me from seeing everything… No wait, we’re talking about low profile graphics here. Sent in through our tipline, one of our observant readers has spotted that Zotac is readying two new LP ‘Mini’ cards – a GTX 1050 and a GTX 1050 TI. Both cards are bus powered, are rated at 75w, and feature the same dual-40mm cooling design, based on an extruded aluminium heatsink. The Zotac GTX 1050 TI Mini features a base clock of 1290MHz, with boost to 1392MHz. 4GB GDDR5 is specified, on a 128 bit …

Zotac GTX 1080 Mini now in stock!

Zotac announced the first short GTX 1080 video card at the end of last year and it’s been one of the most discussed video cards on the forum since then, but now it’s here! Amazon has it listed for $720, and shows in stock, with 2 left as of this writing. The price is a bit high, but presumably there’s a bit of price gouging going on since stock is so limited, and it’s being sold via a third-party seller and not Amazon themselves. But that’s the price you pay for having the latest and greatest, right this minute. Hopefully the price will come down …

ZOTAC announces the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini

A new king has been crowned! All hail the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini (ZT-P10800H-10P), based on the GP104 (Pascal) architecture. Complete with 8GB of GDDR5X and 2560 CUDA cores, this fully configured card packs a wallop! The dual-slot Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini consumes up to 180watts, just 30 Watts more than a GTX 1070. The 8-pin PCIe power plug is located on the top and is not recessed so be sure to account for that additional clearance when planning your next build. To help dissipate this increased heat while keeping the board incredibly small, this card will be equipped with 3 thick copper heatpipes (the 1070 …
