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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
