Zotac GTX 750 ZONE Edition Review: The original Maxwell is still around
  • PROS
  • Passive cooling
  • Better power management
  • CONS
  • Average performance

Verdict

Performance-wise, it’s average, it’s not better than the cards from other manufacturers and at this price bracket pretty much every card does the same amount of number crunching so it comes down to which card is the cheapest. Maxwell’s flagship, the GTX 980 was recently launched and with that there are price cuts expected throughout NVIDIA’s Kepler lineup which will make alternatives like the GTX 660 much more afford-able and it’d even make for a sensible purchase compared to the 750 Ti and the 750.

Zotac GTX 750 ZONE Edition detailed review

ZOTAC’s ZONE edition cards are those that only feature passive cooling. With the GTX 750 being a low TDP card having a passive cooler means you can take the power which would generally be consumed by the fan and channel it to the GPU and get more performance. The cooler present on this particular card has a wide array of fins which are held together by two copper heatpipes that go and terminate onto the GPU.


At peak loads we saw that the card heated up all the way to 65 degrees Celsius which is comparable to the 60 degrees Celsius which we saw on the 750 Ti and that SKU had two fans and one heat pipe. These temperatures were obtained with as little incidental airflow as we could manage.

Performance-wise, it’s average, it’s not better than the cards from other manufacturers and at this price bracket pretty much every card does the same amount of number crunching so it comes down to which card is the cheapest. Maxwell’s flagship, the GTX 980 was recently launched and with that there are price cuts expected throughout NVIDIA’s Kepler lineup which will make alternatives like the GTX 660 much more afford-able and it’d even make for a sensible purchase compared to the 750 Ti and the 750.
