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

3DMark Fitrestrike

 

3DMark Firestrike shows that the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini once again pulls a lead on the Founders Edition card to the tune of 4%.

3DMark Time Spy

Time Spy is the newest 3DMark entry being a DX12 variant. The Zotac RTX 2070 Mini once again pulls a 4% lead in the graphics score. Not too bad when you consider the price and supposed frequency delta.

VRMark

 

VRMark has 3 levels, Easiest being Orange, then heavy being Cyan and insane mode being Blue.

Here we see the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini pulling 4% on the higher level Cyan and Blue tests. The Orange test the Zotac model is ahead but only by .33%.

 

Unigine Heaven 4.0 Pro

Heaven is a long time test ion our suite. It is from Unigine and pushes tessellation and some heavy GPU loading.

While Heaven may be aging, it once again validates what we have seen with a FPS gain over the founders edition of 5.68% for the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini.

Unigine Superposition Pro

Superposition is the newest benchmark from Unigine and is better aligned with testing the newer cards we are testing today.

Here with Unigine Superposition we see the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini pull 4.99% ahead (lets call it 5%) and this is really starting to look really good for the little Zotac that could.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC

Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24GB

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.

  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.

  2. Thanks for this review. I have a 280X Corsair case and I was looking for a 2070 card that wouldn’t take over my build. I have a Strix 570 card now and the dimensions are almost identicle between these 2 cards. This looks like the perfect option for performance and size.
