Silence, they say, is golden. Personally I'm more concerned with gaming frame rates, but when something comes around offering zero dB sound levels and decent gaming speed, I'm going to sit up and take notice. And Zotac's GT 640 Zone is certainly making me take notice. Now, I'm not saying that this is a proper gaming card on par with the likes of the HD 7770 or HD 6850, but considering its stealth credentials and bargain sticker price, it's certainly worth a look in specific circumstances. And what might those be, I hear you ask in the shadowy recesses of my head? Well, we've been checking out the power of the modern mini PC, and this would be an ideal card for a little chassis that you're keeping in the lounge. Y'know, somewhere you don't want to be filled with the sound of a jet turbine on full afterburn every time you boot up a 3D game. It's also useful if power draw is a real concern for you. With no PCIe power connectors necessary for the smooth running of this Kepler-GPU powered card, it's perfect for those with a paucity of spare power leads on their PSU. Kepler, eh?
Zotac has made a name for themselves in the SFF community with many of the Zbox systems and SFF boards. Zotac also makes GeForce graphics cards which are quite well featured and targeted at specific user demographics. Today we have the Zone Edition which is designed for the HTPC user who wants a silent system. Zotac is in need of no introduction to the HTPC crowd: with their line of SFF systems and mainboards, they have really been a powerful presence in the mini ITX market for some time now. In the graphics card market they have not quite had the presence we see from other manufacturers but with lines like their AMP series we can see them making some serious moves to be a contender in this market as well. On that note we have a new ZONE edition product based on the new Kepler architecture: the GT 640 ZONE edition. The GT 640 ZONE Edition is a passively cooled solution that is designed from the ground up to stay adequately cooled while providing zero noise output. This is huge for the HTPC crowd as their media centers are always based around low or zero noise systems for video playback and even encoding/decoding operations.
