Final Thoughts and Conclusion
There are many things I can say about the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP, none of which are negative. Starting first with the aesthetics. The Zotac RTX 2060 AMP is a compact card for sure. Its size makes the Zotac 2060 AMP the ideal card for small form factor builds. Zotac advertises that the 2060 AMP will fit into 99% of cases, and I fully believe it. With its neutral colors of black, gray and silver, the 2060 AMP can easily fit into any build that has a specific color scheme in mind. The back plate looks great and I love that it wraps around the rear of the card This gives the PCB and the heat sink 360° of protection. It also adds to the already great look of the card. Although RGB lighting has started to grow on me, I still prefer non-RGB lighting. So, the fact the Zotac 2060 AMP has only a white LED may be a negative for some, its a huge plus for me. Again, this goes well with the neutral color scheme of the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP.
The performance of the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP was great and far exceeded my personal expectations. Where its considered a budget or mid-ranged card, I had expected it to perform as a solid card for 1080p gaming, on high to very high settings. With the exception of Battlefield V, I tested all games on their highest presets. The Zotac 2060 AMP destroyed all games at 1080p and turned out to be a solid card for 1440p gaming, even with games at their highest presets. If you’re ok with gaming at 30 frames per second, the 2060 AMP could even handle light 4k gaming. However, if you’re anything like me, you’d prefer higher frame rates at lower resolutions.
Overall, I was very impressed with the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP. I love the size of the card, especially with the performance the card put out. The combination of form factor and performance makes the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP the perfect card for a home theater PC that doubles as a very capable gaming PC. As the VR Mark results show, the 2060 AMP is also a very capable card for VR gaming. I’ve heard several people say that the 2060 is a pointless card because you can get a 1070 TI cheaper. However, our results show the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP steadily beat out the 1070 TI FTW2 which launched at a higher price than the 2060 in general. Even at the time of this review, the average 1070 ti is selling for about $350 USD, used on eBay. This is only about $20 cheaper than the $369.99 USD the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP is selling for on Amazon when this review was written. Top that off with the fact you get ray-tracing features and the newer GDDR6 memory with the RTX 2060 AMP, and its a not really a hard decision. The Zotac RTX 2060 AMP is an amazing card and how Turing should have originally launched.
