ZOTAC Unveils its GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Graphics Cards

ZOTAC Technology, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to expand the GeForce GTX line of graphics cards with the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce GTX SUPER series featuring GDDR6 ultra-fast memory. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture, the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER series feature two super compact VR ready models and is up to 20% faster than the original GTX 1660 and up to 1.5X faster than the previous-generation GTX 1060 6 GB.

The ZOTAC GAMING GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER AMP is factory overclocked out of the box for faster performance. Featuring a full body length aluminium array heatsink, dual 90 mm fans, a dynamic layout of copper heatpipes, and a powerful design in color neutral to match any PC system color scheme. At just up to 8.3 inches or 209.6 mm, it is still a super compact design.

Confirmed: NVIDIA GTX 1660 Super to Make Use of GDDR6 Memory

Videocardz have snagged some ZOTAC box renders (for an AMP and non-AMP model), and these all but confirm some rumors that have been circulating through the interwebs: NVIDIA's GTX 1660 SUPER will make use of a GDDR6 memory subsystem to increase bandwidth and competitiveness against AMD's lineup. As GDDR6 memory pricing falls, it makes sense that NVIDIA trickles it down across its product stack as a relatively inexpensive way to improve performance - a move that is well in line with their SUPER lineup policy.

GIGABYTE Gives AMD X570 the Full Aorus Treatment: ITX to Xtreme

Motherboard vendors are betting big on the success of AMD's "Valhalla" desktop platform that combines a Ryzen 3000-series Zen 2 processor with an AMD X570 chipset motherboard, and have responded with some mighty premium board designs. GIGABYTE deployed its full spectrum of Aorus branding, including Ultra, Elite, ITX Pro, Master, and Xtreme. The X570 I Aorus Pro WiFi mini-ITX motherboard is an impressive feat of engineering despite its designers having to wrestle with the feisty new PCIe gen 4 chipset. It draws power from a combination of 24-pin and 8-pin connectors, and conditions power for the SoC with an impressive 8-phase VRM that uses high-grade PowIRstage components. A rather tall fan-heatsink cools the X570 chipset, with a 30 mm fan.

Connectivity options on the X570 I Aorus Pro WiFi are surprisingly aplenty. The sole expansion slot is a PCI-Express 4.0 x16, but the storage connectivity includes not one, but two M.2-2280 slots (reverse side of the PCB), each with PCI-Express 4.0 x4 and SATA 6 Gbps wiring. Four SATA 6 Gbps ports make for the rest of the storage connectivity. Networking options include 2.4 Gbps 802.11ax WLAN, Bluetooth 5.0 (Intel , and 1 GbE, all pulled by Intel-made controllers. USB connectivity includes six 5 Gbps USB 3.2 gen 1, and two 10 Gbps USB 3.2 gen 2 ports (of which one is type-C), and two 5 Gbps ports by headers. The onboard audio solution has 6-channel analog output, but is backed by a premium Realtek ALC1220VB Enhance CODEC (114 dBA SNR).

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1660 Ti AMP, Twin Fan Renders Leaked

As we draw closer to the launch of NVIDIA-s upcoming, RTX/less GTX 11660 Ti graphics card, which is pegged to offer performance comparable to that of their previous generation GTX 1070, more and more partner cards - with their custom designs ready to go - are popping up. This time it's ZOTAC and its AMP and Twin Fan graphics cards, though there's not much more information.

The pictures offer some, though, as do ZOTAC's previous launch decisions when it comes to their AMPD and Twin Fan graphics cards. Both SKUs for the GTX 1660 Ti offer a dual-fan, single-slot solution, with a single 8-pin connector guaranteeing enough juice for both nominal and overclocked operation. A different PCB design is seemingly used between both cards, as the leaked renders seem to point towards. The AMP series will offer somewhat overclocked values for higher performance, and sports a lighter gray on the shroud, compared to the Twin Fan solution. Expect these to launch alongside NVIDIA's announcement, coming in just a few days.

ZOTAC Launching at Least Two RTX 2060 Models

The folks over at HD Tecnología have managed to snag some renders of ZOTAC-s upcoming renditions of the RTX 2060 graphics card, which has been getting more and more significant in the rumor mill as its release date (for now thought to be around January 15th) approaches. For now, two models seem to be planned: the AMP and Twin Fan models.

Both models feature the same cooler design, with angular, jet-like contours and a non-explosive gray and silver color scheme. The power connectors seem to be of the 8-pin type, and the design is being compared with that of the RTX 2070 Mini, also from ZOTAC - which it is. And that should mean similar dimensions and, likely, the same output connectors - 1x dual-link DVI-D connector on card, 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI, with an MIA VirtualLink port.

ZOTAC Prepping Another RTX 20-Series: AMP Extreme

ZOTAC is preparing to launch another tier to its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards lineup with the AMP Extreme series. Sitting above their now historic AMP Series (at least in computer hardware terms, it's already historic), the new lineup will bring much improved factory overclocking numbers, so these are certainly part of those cherry-picked chips for maximum performance. Core clocks aren't known at the time, but memory clocks have been upped to 14.4 Gbps, some 400 MHz above the factory specifications for the RTX 2080 - the only confirmed card until now.

The rest of the design is relatively straightforward, with a metallic backplate, a tri-90 mm fan design, 2x 8-pin power connectors, a 16+4 phases power delivery system, and a much increased TDP of 280 W (over the reference 215 W). Of course, there's RGB lighting as well, but that's not the important thing here: the cherry-picked chips are. It's unclear os of yet when this series will hit the market, but expect them sooner rather than later. ZOTAC is apparently also working on a AMP Core series, which should find its differentiation over the factory overclocking specifics.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme Starts Selling

One of the fastest air-cooled GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics cards you can buy, the ZOTAC GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme (model: ZT-90505-10P), started selling. It offers some of the highest factory-overclocked speeds for the GTX 980 Ti, with 1253 MHz core, 1355 MHz GPU Boost, and 7220 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, compared to reference speeds of 1000/1076/7012 MHz.

The ZOTAC GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme features the company's in-house designed triple-slot IceStorm cooling solution, which features a massive dual fin-stack heatsink, that's ventilated by a trio of temperature-activated fans. The card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.2, and one each of HDMI 2.0 and dual-link DVI. Available now, the card is priced at US $700.

ZOTAC Gives the GeForce GTX 980 Ti a Massive 25% Factory Overclock

A 25% factory-overclock is something you usually hear with entry-level graphics cards around the $60 mark; and the bigger the silicon, the more conservative VGA makers get with factory-overclocks. ZOTAC thinks otherwise. The company's GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme graphics card ships with a massive 25% factory-overclock - something unheard of for a chip with 250W TDP, much less an 8 billion-transistor count.

The card comes with 1253 MHz core (vs. 1000 MHz reference), 1335 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1076 MHz reference), and 7210 MHz memory (vs. 7012 MHz reference). The card is cooled by a meaty triple-slot IceStorm air-based cooler by ZOTAC; and a VRM that draws power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors keep the card fed. ZOTAC could ask a $100 premium over the base price of $649, offering performance which, we reckon, could be much higher than that of the $999 GTX TITAN X.
