ZOTAC Reveals Their Take on the NVLink Bridge

Last week was quite busy with news, and one thing that slipped through the cracks then was the announcement of ZOTAC's new NVLink bridging solutions. Marketed under the ZOTAC Gaming brand, these follow in line with other major NVIDIA add-in card (AIC) partners in providing an alternative to the first-party OEM offering, just in case you preferred a different aesthetic. These are available in either a 3-slot (74.5 x 75.5 x 25 mm) or a 4-slot (74.5 x 96 x 25 mm) spacing option, with backlighting support for the ZOTAC Gaming logo in the center that can be configured by their SPECTRA software lighting suite.

These NVLink bridges have not yet been made available for purchase in most regions, with expected retail availability ranging from December 14-20, but those in East Asia can already find them available for comparable prices as with other such options from MSI, ASUS, and GIGABYTE. ZOTAC also put out an unboxing video which gives a better look at the product relative to the renders below, for those interested.

NVIDIA Unveils GeForce GTX 1070 with GDDR5X Memory

It looks like NVIDIA bought itself a mountain of unsold GDDR5X memory chips, and is now refreshing its own mountain of unsold GP104 inventory, to make products more presentable to consumers in the wake of its RTX 20-series and real-time ray-tracing lure. First, it was the GP104-based GTX 1060 6 GB with GDDR5X memory, and now it's the significantly faster GeForce GTX 1070, which is receiving the newer memory, along with otherwise unchanged specifications. ZOTAC is among the first NVIDIA add-in card partners ready with one such cards, the GTX 1070 AMP Extreme Core GDDR5X (model: ZT-P10700Q-10P).

Much like the GTX 1060 6 GB GDDR5X, this otherwise factory-overclocked ZOTAC card sticks to a memory clock speed of 8.00 GHz, despite using GDDR5X memory chips that are rated for 10 Gbps. It features 8 GB of it across the chip's full 256-bit memory bus width. The GPU is factory-overclocked by ZOTAC to tick at 1607 MHz, with 1797 MHz GPU Boost, which are below the clock-speeds of the GDDR5 AMP Extreme SKU, that has not just higher 1805 MHz GPU Boost frequency, but also overclocked memory at 8.20 GHz. Out of the box, this card's performance shouldn't be distinguishable from the GDDR5 AMP Core, but the memory alone should serve up a significant overclocking headroom.

ZOTAC Intros GeForce GTX 1060 6GB G5X Destroyer Graphics Card

ZOTAC began rolling out its first refreshed GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB graphics cards that feature the more advanced GDDR5X memory, dubbed GTX 1060 6 GB G5X Destroyer. Since NVIDIA is carving out this RX 590-rivaling SKU from the larger GP104 silicon, ZOTAC appears to be using the same PCB as its GTX 1080 Mini, with 2/8 memory traces blanked out. The GP104 silicon is configured with the same 1,280 CUDA cores, 80 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and 192-bit wide memory interface as the GP106-based original, but with 6 GB of GDDR5X memory, albeit clocked at the same 8 GHz.

The card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1506 MHz core, 1708 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz memory clock, although the 10 Gbps-rated GDDR5X memory chips could come with vast overclocking headroom. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPorts, and one each HDMI and DVI-D. Although the card physically features SLI-HB fingers, ZOTAC clarifies that SLI is not supported for this SKU.

ZOTAC Intros GeForce RTX 2070 Mini Series

ZOTAC today introduced its GeForce RTX 2070 Mini series graphics cards, which could be the most compact RTX 20-series products in the market right now. With 21 cm length, and 12.9 cm height, these cards are more friendly with space-constrained cubical cases meant for micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards. ZOTAC's RTX 2070 Mini lineup consists of two variants, the base (model: ZT-T20700E-10P), and the factory-overclocked OC variant (ZT-T20700F-10P). Both cards are identical, and vary with clock speeds. The base variant offers NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1410 MHz base, and 1620 MHz GPU Boost; while the OC variant increases the boost frequency to 1650 MHz. Memory on both cards is untouched, at 14 GHz (GDDR6-effective).

On both cards, power is drawn from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. The PCB is slightly shorter than the cooler itself. The cooler consists of a dense aluminium fin-stack, to which heat drawn from the GPU is fed by copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by two fans, one of which is 90 mm, and the other 100 mm. Display connectivity curiously includes a dual-link DVI-D connector on card, in addition to three DisplayPorts and a HDMI. The VirtualLink port is MIA. The base variant is priced around $530, and the OC variant around $550.

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 Announces its GeForce RTX 20-series

ZOTAC Avoids NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti Factory Overclocking Restrictions via OC Profile

NVIDIA's decision to prohibit AIB partners from factory overclocking their GTX 1070 Ti graphics is a decision that may not sit well with hardware enthusiasts, but it's one that makes the most sense from a business perspective. As it is, it's expected that overclocked versions of the GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards, which have come to offer a more compelling NVIDIA option against AMD's Vega 56 graphics card, will offer performance that is by all accounts comparable to that offered by its more expensive (and older) GTX 1080 graphics cards. So NVIDIA is just ensuring that its introduction of the GTX 1070 Ti with its $459 MSRP doesn't cannibalize sales of their higher tier graphics card through higher out-of-the-box performance via factory overclocking.

ZOTAC Announces its GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Cards

MSI, PALIT, ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Graphics Cards Also Pictured

Videocardz does a great job on putting their hands on as-of-yet unreleased pictures of upcoming GPUs, and this time, they've brought out some more custom takes on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card from MSI, PALIT, and yet more ZOTAC models. MSI has shown their red and black color scheme yet again on their Gaming model; lower in the product stack comes the Armor model, with its black and white color scheme; and finally, there's the blower-type Aero version of the GTX 1070 Ti.

PALIT hasn't shown their hand on the blower-style GTX 1070 Ti, which they almost assuredly have; however, there are some pictures fo two of their custom models. There's a Dual-Fan model with the same name, and another, slightly higher-tier looking JetStream version, which likely brings some RGB elements and a custom PCB - likely, the GTX 1070 Ti version of their GTX 1080 JetStream graphics card.

PNY, ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Cards Pictured

Leaks and product images of NVIDIA's upcoming GTX 1070 Ti graphics card continue to surface from all manufacturers. This time, it's two PNY graphics card models, and one ZOTAC that have found themselves brought to the limelight. The PNY models don't deviate too much from the already known leaks: they follow the same engineering pattern of one blower-style cooled graphics card, marrying NVIDIA's reference design with some different aesthetics engineering from the AIB partners, and one fully custom model. PNY's particular take on the custom model features only two fans, which seems to make this design a distinct one from the fully custom, three-fan XLR8 design they had for the GTX 1070 (non Ti version).
