ZOTAC GTX 760 Zalman VF3000
ASK Inc. Japan has announced its latest graphics card called ZOTAC GeForce GTX 760 ZALMAN with VF3000 cooling solution. ZOTAC is one of the best manufacturer and supplier of low end to high-end graphics card solution for gaming and this card is just one of their creation. On the other hand, Zalman is a well-known company for creating cooling devices for processor, low noise power supplies and cooling options for video cards.
This card is one of my target graphics card last year to match with my orange/black theme rig, although I wasn’t able to wait for it any longer and bought a different card instead. I was really happy when I’ve seen this particular model of GTX 760 that is was already available in the Philippines as I really didn’t expect that this particular version will be released here in our country because it was released by a Japanese company.
