Concluding thoughts…

50 MHz bump is not really a big deal. But the card’s GPU cooler ensures good cooling performance in case you plan on overclocking this card manually. Zotac only has two variants of the GTX 1060. The other one is the mini version with a single 90mm fan and the stock base/boost clock. The 3GB variant is only of the mini version.

You should also note that Zotac has extended warranty for which you can retain it while registering the card online. It’s hard to say point out the absence of LED lighting and backplate as a con since they don’t make any difference. But seeing that there is some cost cutting measure such as the absence of an installation disc and their case badge, maybe asking for a backplate isn’t too much. As always, if the cons don’t affect you then it’s as good as nil.

The card has a copper heatbase for the core along with two copper heatpipes running through it. It’s a compact design true to what GTX 1060 should be but with dual 90mm fan design. This is all the more reason Zotac could have provided a much higher core clock. Even MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X’s gaming mode has a base/boost clock speed of 1569/1784 MHz, while its OC mode is 1594/ 1809 MHz.

  1. “This is a good overclock” Yeah if you don’t know how others overclock.

  2. We didn’t say its the best overclocker either. To be fair, I also pointed out that MSI has higher factory overclocks in the conclusion as well.

    Cheers.
