ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 Ti Extreme Graphics Card Detailed

To the rest of the world, ZOTAC's fastest GeForce GTX 660 Ti offering is the AMP! Edition, but select markets in the Greater China region have access to the good stuff, the GTX 660 Ti Extreme. Built for competitive overclocking, the GTX 660 Ti Extreme from ZOTAC features in the same GamerForce series as the GTX 670 Extreme and GTX 680 Extreme. Except the change in color scheme of the cooler shroud (which is now black+gold), and the narrower memory bus interface, the card is virtually identical to the GTX 670 Extreme.

The GTX 660 Ti Extreme features the same exact PCB design as the one used on the GTX 670 and GTX 680 Extreme graphics cards. With the exception of two empty 32-bit wide memory pads, the PCB designs are identical. The PCB retains the 13-phase VRM that draws power from 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors, OC+ module support, and the beastly dual 92 mm fan-heatsink. The cooler uses five 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat-pipes to convey heat to a dense aluminum fin array, which is then ventilated by the two fans.

ZOTAC Gives GeForce GTX 670 Extreme Edition Treatment

ZOTAC seems to have a 2-pronged approach to the GeForce GTX 670, depending on the region it's being sold in. While it took advantage of the compact reference PCB by NVIDIA to come up with the space-saving GTX 670 TwinCooler (ZTGTX670-2GD5TCR001), it did the exact with the GTX 670 Extreme Edition. The card is based on the same exact design as the GTX 680 Extreme Edition, down to its lavish voltage regulation circuitry, with just the GTX 670 ASIC taking the place of the GTX 680.

The card ships with out of the box clock speeds of 1111 MHz (GPU base), 1202 MHz (GPU Boost), and 1652 MHz (memory actual), or 6.60 GHz (memory effective). It draws power from 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and conditions power using a 13-phase VRM that consists of noise-free chokes and PowIRstage DrMOS chips by International Rectifier. Power is further conditioned by a trio of multi-phase FPCAPs, and tantalum capacitors. Like the GTX 680 Extreme Edition, the card features the entire overclocker-friendly feature-set, including OC+ Module, dual-BIOS with LN2-friendly BIOS, voltage measurement points, temperature and phase loading LEDs.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 670 TwinCooler Graphics Card Detailed

One aspect of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 670 that blew us away, was its unusually short PCB for a high-performance GPU. NVIDIA's reference board still ended up being of average length, because NVIDIA's lateral-flow cooling assembly protruded beyond the PCB's length. AIC partners such as ZOTAC realised that custom-design graphics cards with short PCBs can be made to stay short, by opting for top-flow cooling solutions, something it materialised with the new GTX 670 TwinCooler (model: ZTGTX670-2GD5TCR001/ZT-60305-10P).

Pictured below, the GTX 670 TwinCooler from ZOTAC is short (about 60 mm shorter than NVIDIA reference design card). It uses a dense aluminum fin heatsink to cool the GK104 GPU, memory, and VRM. The heatsink is ventilated by two 80 mm fans. The card needs just a tiny bit more than two expansion slots in your system, it appears like it won't block the third expansion card slot. Despite its diminutive form, the card is factory-overclocked, with 954 MHz GPU clock, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6208 MHz memory (against reference speeds of 915/980/6008 MHz). It draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors, outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. It will be launched on the 20th of June.

ZOTAC Unveils Custom-Design GeForce GTX 680 AMP! Edition and 4 GB Edition

ZOTAC unveiled two new GeForce GTX 680-based graphics card products, the first is a custom-design AMP! Edition 2 GB (part#: ZTGTX680-2GD5AMPR001), and the other is one that sticks to NVIDIA reference design cooler and PCB, but packs double the memory amount (part#: ZTGTX680-4GD5R001). The ZOTAC GTX 680 AMP! Edition uses a swanky-looking triple-slot cooling solution which packs a large aluminum fin stack to which heat is conveyed by four copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by two 90 mm PWM-controlled fans. The AMP! Edition comes with clock speeds of 1,110 MHz (core base), 1,176 MHz (core boost), and 6008 MHz memory, against NVIDIA reference speeds of 1,006/1,058/6008 MHz.

The GeForce GTX 680 OC 4 GB Edition, on the other hand, retains NVIDIA reference board design augmented by ZOTAC's swanky orange stickers. The card packs double the memory amount (4 GB vs. 2 GB reference), which could come handy with 3D Vision Surround setups. This card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds, with 1,006 MHz (core base), 1,058 MHz (core boost), and 6008 MHz (memory). Both cards feature the same display output layout, of two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort, and 2x 6-pin PCIe power inputs. Both cards include Assassin's Creed 3-game packs. In Japan, both cards are priced the same, at 60,000 JPY (US $750).

ZOTAC Launches its GeForce GTX 690 Graphics Card, Includes Assassin's Creed Pack

ZOTAC launched its GeForce GTX 690 graphics card. Like every other GTX 690 launched till now, ZOTAC's card sticks to NVIDIA reference board design. It is an indication that NVIDIA imposed restrictions on the AIC partners to modify its design, even placing AIC brand stickers seems to be disallowed, which is a good thing because NVIDIA's design is too good to be spoiled by gaudy stickers. It is likely that ZOTAC sticks to the NVIDIA-suggested price of US $999, but to sweeten the deal, it added a bundle called Assassin's Creed 3-Game Pack, which includes Steam coupons for games from the franchise.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 Launched

NVIDIA today announced the GeForce GTX 690, the world's fastest consumer graphics card -- with a bold industrial design to match.

ZOTAC Unveils ZT-Z77-U1D SuperOverclock High-End Motherboard

ZOTAC unveiled a monster LGA1155 motherboard aimed at professional overclockers, and based on the new Intel Z77 Express chipset, the ZT-Z77-U1D. Pictured below, the designers' focus was evidently on giving the motherboard a very strong VRM, apart from just enough expansion and connectivity features for 2-way multi-GPU setups. To begin with, the LGA1155 socket is powered by a 27-phase VRM, which consists of AIO ferrite-core solid-state chokes, DrMOS, tantalum capacitors, and a super-ML multiphase capacitor to condition power. The VRM is controlled by a VRD12-compliant controller.

The LGA1155 socket is wired to four DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting dual-channel DDR3-2133+ MHz memory, and two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (x8/x8, when both are populated). Other expansion slots include four PCI-Express 2.0 x1, wired to the Z77 PCH. All six SATA ports from the PCH are assigned as internal ports, that's two SATA 6 Gb/s, and four SATA 3 Gb/s. Display connectivity includes DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Other connectivity includes 8+2 channel HD audio, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, gigabit Ethernet, six USB 3.0 ports (two on the rear panel, four via headers), and a number of USB 2.0 ports.

ZOTAC GTX 680 Extreme Edition Clocked at 1.20 GHz

ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 680 Extreme Edition is shaping up to be a monster. A preview by Expreview points out its clock speeds out of the box to be 1.20 GHz (base and boost), with memory staying at 1.50 GHz (6.00 GHz GDDR5 effective). The default core voltage is 1.212V. ZOTAC also told the source that the card is capable of delivering 1.5V core voltage to assist in extreme-overclocking. It also goes on to claim that 2.00 GHz core clock speed might just be possible, in the best case scenario (you have the best cooling, best overclocking skillset, best luck).

Apart from a strong VRM (detailed in the older article), the card is also backed by several nifty features, such voltage measurement points, extreme-cooling optimized BIOS, and adequate-looking VRM cooling. The USB mini type-B connector on the back of the card turns out to be not a connection to an OC module, but a USB connection to the motherboard. ZOTAC is routing the card's SMBUS to its Firestorm OC software over USB. Maybe they haven't figured out [how] this could be done through the NVIDIA driver interface, or they didn't trust NVIDIA. For example, NVIDIA blocks SMBUS access to components that they deem "sensitive".

More pictures, and videos follow.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 Extreme Edition Pictured

ZOTAC is flexing its engineering muscle. First, it was talk of a 2 GHz GeForce GTX 680 by one of its senior executives, and now this, ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 Extreme Edition. Pictured below, the card's design is reminiscent of the crazy engineering endeavors ZOTAC China undertakes, to come up with some extremely powerful designs, which seldom get out of the APAC region (to EMEAI and NA regions).

ZOTAC took a top-tier binned GK104 GPU, 2 GB of high-grade Hynix GDDR5 memory chips, and paired them with a 12-phase VRM power supply. Apart from bleeding-edge International Rectifier GaNpowIR driver-MOSFETs, the VRM uses server-grade tantalum capacitors, and FPCAP multi-phase capacitors. To drive it all, ZOTAC used CHiL CHL8318 VRM controller.

ZOTAC Working On GeForce GTX 680 with 2 GHz Core Clock Speed

Speaking at a conference of AIC partners, ZOTAC (China) General Manager Mr. Kwai claimed that his company was working on a "Godly" GeForce GTX 680 non-reference design graphics card, with 2 GHz core clock speed. The card will be designed to demonstrate ZOTAC's engineering potential with non-reference designs. It will be ready by mid-April, 2012. Then again, there could be a catch. ZOTAC China has, in the past, designed certain bleeding-edge graphics cards exclusively for the Chinese market, which never made it to Europe and the US. ZOTAC is an NVIDIA-exclusive brand backed by OEM Goliath PC Partner, which also holds AMD-exclusive brand Sapphire Technology.
