Why Zotac cards are cheaper than other brands?

I was going to buy 1050ti from Zotac and found that Zotac cards are 20-30 USD cheaper than other brands. Why is this? Is this because of product quality? Will Zotac cards die faster than other brands like Gigabyte, MSI ?

I think they use cheaper VRMs.

Looking at PartPicker and such for what people have said about Zotac cards such as their GTX1060 AMP! edition and it's all generally good reviews so I can only pinpoint it to not being a known GPU manufacturer so they can only compete on the price front. On the other hand this is basing off of PartPicker so take what you will

Zotac cards are fine and you'll have the warranty if ever needed.. Save yourself the money and go with them.  I don't believe they have inferior components or build quality.

I think they just focus on designing and marketing their cards more to the budget end. From what I've seen, they appear to focus more on low profile/mini designs rather than high factory overclocks, overclockability, and pure performance that the bigger names like Asus focus on.
