A Closer Look
ZOTAC's cooler uses two heatpipes to distribute heat generated by the GPU.
You will find two additional heatsinks on the card. One cools memory chips (memory chips on the other side of the card are not cooled), and the other cools the voltage regulation circuitry.
The card requires a single 6-pin PCI-Express power cable for operation. This power configuration is good for up to 150 W of power draw.
ZOTAC uses an OnSemi NCP5395 voltage controller. We have seen this controller on many designs before. It is a cost effective solution that does not provide any I2C, so advanced monitoring is not possible.
The GDDR5 memory chips are made by Hynix and carry the model number H5GQ2H24AFR-R0C. They are specified to run at 1500 MHz (6000 MHz GDDR5 effective).
NVIDIA's GK106 processor is produced on a 28 nm at TSMC, Taiwan. The transistor count is 2.54 billion.
