Although they have different colors and frequencies (minor factory overclocks, of course), the two new ZOTAC video cards that use the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 as foundation stay within the 170 W TDP value of the reference design. Thankfully, since these are (almost) low-end parts, finding them should not be a problem.

Finding potent video cards during the crypto mining craze that seems to be storming the planet again is very tricky, but those looking to get the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 should relax. The video cards based on this reference design should be potent enough for playing most games in decent conditions, but too weak to be taken by crypto miners into their crosshairs.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the two NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060-based designs that ZOTAC has just unveiled:

  • GAMING GeForce RTX 3060 AMP White: black PCB but an all-white coolr, fan, and backplate, with clock boost speeds of 1,837 MHz and two 8-pin power connectors
  • GAMING GeForce RTX 3060 Twin Edge: all-black design, 1,777 MHz and 1,807 MHz clock boost (basic and OC versions), but a single 8-pin power connector

The AMP White is also a bit larger, with 9.1 x 5.6 x 1.6 inches in size, while the Twin Edge cards only measure 8.8 x 4.6 x 1.5 inches. Obviously, those looking for the best overclocking potential should not bother with the Twin Edge and just aim for the AMP White.

For now, there is no availability and pricing information, but there should be plenty of RTX 3060-based boards up for sale by the end of the month.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
