ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 Blower Style NVIDIA GPU Review


ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Blower Software

ZOTAC uses its Firestorm software to overclock the RTX 2070 Blower graphics card.

Firestorm does not come with any preset OC profiles which would have been nice and simple for ZOTAC to do. It does include the OC Scanner button; this feature takes a few minutes to run while it finds the highest OC the card can handle. We ran OC Scanner but found the final settings to be unstable.

We could have spent a great deal of time to find the top end OC for the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Blower. For our users, most will utilize stock clock speeds. Some will use a conservative overclock that will work across multiple servers and workstations. We ended up just using a conservative increase of 100 MHz to the core speed and hit apply.
