Traditional Nvidia add in board (AIB) video card manufacturing partner, well-known company Zotac is officially launching today its own implementations of the new GK106 GPU that features 960 CUDA cores and it’s being manufactured in TSMC’s 28nm technology.
The company’s “basic” GK106 card is the Zotac GeForce GTX 660 and this card has a slightly GPU overclock as the base frequency is rated at 993 MHz while the Boost option can up it to a high 1059 MHz.
The second card launched today is the Zotac GeForce GTX 660 AMP! Edition that has its GPU clocked at high 1046 MHz base frequency right from the box.
Zotac’s AMP! Edition features a custom cooling system that will certainly help when the card’s Boost option is activated and the GPU clock is risen at 1111 MHz.
The 2 GB of GDDR5 memory on both cards is unfortunately running at the default 6008 MHz effective frequency.
