ZOTAC Unleashes GeForce 9800 GTX+

ZOTAC International, a leading NVIDIA partner, today unleashes two new high-performance graphics card based on NVIDIA’s GeForce 9800 graphics architecture – the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition. The new ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series graphics cards are the result of extensive tweaking and tuning to extract superior clock speeds and performance from NVIDIA’s GeForce 9800 architecture.
Powering the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition is a new NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics processor with 128 screaming-fast processor cores. Each individual processor core features an ultra-fast clock speed of 1836 MHz on the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and 1890 MHz on the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition; ready to take on all 3D related tasks from gaming to high-definition video playback.

“With the latest generation of ZOTAC GeForce 9-series graphics cards, the clock speed and performance of each individual processor core has become an important performance aspect,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International. “The highly clocked processor cores in our ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition deliver higher performance in gaming as well as NVIDIA CUDA compiled applications, resulting in a graphics card that delivers phenomenal performance for work and play.”

The NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics processor in the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ is also highly clocked at 738 MHz and paired with 512MB of blazing-fast 2200 MHz GDDR3 memory for high-resolution gaming. Stepping up to the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition yields even higher 750 MHz core and 2300 MHz memory clock speeds for even higher frame-rates and performance.

Featuring NVIDIA’s Unified Architecture, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series deliver support for DirectX 10 with Shader Model 4.0 and OpenGL 2.1 enabled 3D games and applications for brilliant visuals and phenomenal frame rates.

The ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series are ready for immersive gaming with NVIDIA PhysX technology. NVIDIA PhysX technology allows compatible games to offload physics processor to the graphics processor, allowing for more fluid and dynamic in-game physics such as more realistic weather and explosion effects.

“Environmental interaction and effects have always lagged behind life-like 3D visuals. With NVIDIA PhysX technology, environmental physics now catch up to visuals to deliver a fully immersive gaming experience that blurs the line between reality and the virtual world,” Mr. Berger added.
When more graphics power is desired, up to three ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series graphics cards can be installed in a single 3-way SLI ready platform. NVIDIA 3-way SLI technology delivers up to 2.8x higher frame rates for smoother game play.

NVIDIA HybridPower technology empowers the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series with power savings technology. When installed in NVIDIA HybridPower compatible platforms, the system can turn off the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ or GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition when it’s not in use to reduce power consumption for mundane desktop tasks.
Enhanced with NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology and hardware decode acceleration technology, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ series is ready to deliver high-definition video playback with virtually no CPU utilization. PureVideo HD technology also enhances standard definition content to make standard DVDs rival Blu-ray movies for visual quality.

“Consumers are still happy with the quality of DVDs, which is why our ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition with NVIDIA PureVideo HD processing enhances and cleans up standard-definition content to look beautiful on high-definition displays,” Mr. Berger said. “However, when consumers are ready to upgrade to Blu-ray high-definition discs, our ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition will be ready to decode the content in hardware for smooth playback and brilliant visuals.”

It’s time to play with the new ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX+ and GeForce 9800 GTX+ AMP! Edition.

Not once you overclock yourself. Die shrinks usually make a significant difference in clocking ability.

and the price decreases, but I guess that's too much to ask for him to learn.
