Zotac RTX 2070 Mini – Zotac Puts RTX 2070 on an Even Smaller Form Factor and Smaller Price!

For the test platform, we went with the Intel 8700K on the Asus Maximus X Formula with Corsair Vengeance running at 3200MHz CL 15. We are running a Thermaltake Triple Radiator cooling solution on the CPU to make sure we don’t get any throttling on the CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro X64 with updates disabled. We make three runs at each test then average those three runs and report the results here. If we hit a run that we consider being far away from the norm we dismiss that result and run a 4th test. The 8700K has been delidded and liquid metal applied to be sure we get as low of temps as possible to ensure we do not have any thermal throttling issues.

  1. It seems that the Zotac LAGS the reference card in every single chart?

    • Yes, it does at stock speeds. This is because as explained in the review the “reference” or “Founders Edition” is a pre-overclocked card whereas this GPU uses a non A-die GPU which Nvidia spec’s as not designed for out of teh box overclocked card models. As you can see from my overclock testing it overclocks just fine so, im not really sure what the non A designator reasoning is or if its lower yield and possibly may have some that do not overclock as well.

      This allows Zotac to price the card competitively while still being able to overclock to meet and even exceed the overclock of the FE model.

      I hope this helps clear things up.
