ZOTAC Announces its GeForce GTX 1080 Series

ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to change the playing field of graphics cards once more with ZOTAC GeForce GTX 10 Series. The first of the new ZOTAC 10 Series is the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, the flagship card of the series. Using the advanced NVIDIA Pascal architecture, the performance has been tuned to incredible levels to provide users with an astonishing out-of-the-box experience.

"ZOTAC is pleased to be standing on the new page of gaming history. Pascal opens many doors to applications that we haven't seen before, especially in the scope of virtual reality," says Tony Wong, CEO, ZOTAC International. "Our engineering team has taken great measures to ensure our graphics cards continue to shine brightly, so that we can bring smiles to each gamer."

ZOTAC GTX 1080 AMP! and AMP! Extreme Graphics Cards Pictured

Here are the first clear pictures of ZOTAC's upcoming custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, the GTX 1080 AMP! and the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme (pictured in that order). The GTX 1080 AMP! features a simple 2-slot, dual-fan cooling solution, with a moderate factory-overclock. The GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme, on the other hand, features a meaty triple-slot, triple-fan cooling solution, a very strong VRM that draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and a heavy factory-overclock.

Both cards feature custom-design PCBs by ZOTAC, which are bound to feature more than one power connector; an identical display output layout of three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and one DVI-D; and ZOTAC Freeze Technology, which powers down the fans when the GPU is idling (or under a temperature threshold). The clock speeds of both the cards are still under the wraps. Both cards are expected to be launched on May 27th.

ZOTAC Teases its GeForce GTX 1080 PGF Graphics Card

ZOTAC teased its GeForce GTX 1080 PGF non-reference design graphics card. Built on a custom-design PCB, the card goes big on multi-color LED lighting along not just its top, but also along edges of its acrylic-based back-plate, which looks like a neon strip along its edges. These cards are expected to be factory-overclocked, and ZOTAC appears to be using a 6+8 pin PCIe power connector layout, compared to a single 8-pin on the reference "Founders Edition" card. From the looks of the tantalum multi-phase capacitor sticking out through the back-plate, ZOTAC could be giving this card a strong VRM area.

ZOTAC Announces the ZBOX PI221 and PI220 PC Sticks

ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce the dongle sized Mini PC, the ZOTAC PC Stick. Joining the lineup of pocket-sized PICO solutions, the PC Stick comes in two ready-to-go solutions: ZBOX PI220 and the award winning ZBOX PI221. With space increasingly becoming a luxury, size is a critical factor in determining the solution for your needs. Often times this means compromising between size and functionality. The PI220 and PI221 pack the functionality of a full size PC in the form of a stick. Equipped with Intel's 14nm Cherry Trail quad core processor, performance and power efficiency are improved over previous generation processors.

The PI220 and PI221 deliver the same network performance as users would expect from a full size PC. Both models come with 802.11ac WiFi capability with external antenna and a full size Ethernet port for an always-on connection. Bluetooth 4.0 also comes standard. ZOTAC is pleased to introduce the high speed USB 3.0 to the tiniest computing solution. Both PI220 and PI221 are equipped with a USB 3.0 port, so users can expand storage space or connect peripherals to augment the PC's functionality on the go. Micro SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot is also a standard feature for quick data transfer or easy storage expansion.

ZOTAC Outs a PCIe x1 GeForce 710 Graphics Card

Need a graphics card for very basic desktop usage and absolutely nothing else? ZOTAC has you covered. The company launched a new GeForce 710 based graphics card with a PCI-Express 3.0 x1 bus interface. The card is passive-cooled, and puts out the three most common display outputs. It can drive resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600, and is backed by a proper WDDM 2.0 compliant driver (the GeForce drivers). Its GPU is clocked at 954 MHz, and 1 GB of DDR3L memory at 1600 MHz.

If you have a machine with your primary x16 slots occupied with something important (think heavy-hitting fiber-channel cards, enterprise HBAs, etc.,) you can use this card on one of your obscure PCIe x1 slots and have yourself a display-head that's slightly more functional than what your IPMI chip's integrated display controller can conjure up. Or you could just use a USB DisplayLink dongle, but shush!

ZOTAC Announces the Magnus EN980 Mini PC

ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce the most powerful ZBOX Gaming Mini PC ready for virtual reality, MAGNUS EN980. This ZBOX is equipped with a 6th generation Intel Skylake processor and features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card to deliver a VR experience in the most compact form factor. MAGNUS EN980 packs the full power of a premium desktop gaming solution into a ZBOX Mini PC. The result is the most powerful ZBOX, and goes beyond the recommended specifications for VR experience.

The unit supports up to four displays via HDMI and DisplayPort, enabling other forms of entertainment that is best enjoyed with multiple displays. USB 3.0 is the standard with a USB 3.1 type-C port which delivers up to 10Gbps data transfer rate. Along with dual gigabit LAN and 802.11ac WiFi, the MAGNUS EN980 is quick across the board. While the Intel Skylake CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 provides the power that pushes the gaming experience further, the factory-installed water-cooling solution keeps MAGNUS cool. By lining liquid channels, heatpipes and heat fins, the heat is directed away from the source, effectively keeping the power core cool. With all the powerful hardware in the most compact of size, amazingly ZOTAC still manages to keep it whisper quiet.

Taking power and size into our engineering, we finely tuned the balance between thermals and performance while accommodating even the smallest of desktop PCs.

Explore and do more with the latest series in the Maxwell family. ZOTAC gives as much attention to design as it does for engineering. The AMP! Edition boasts a dual 90mm IceStorm system finished with Carbon ExoArmor. The durable exterior with wraparound backplate is complete with an immense factory overclocked GPU that will push performance.

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.

ZOTAC Announces its GeForce GTX 980 Ti Series

ZOTAC International, a global innovator and manufacturer of graphics card and ZBOX mini PCs, sets loose the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti series. Engineered to game, ZOTAC has taken the reference GeForce GTX 980 Ti and amped it with more power.
