    ZOTAC today introduced the GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme with faster 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory (model: ZT-P1080I-10P). The card is nearly identical to the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme the company launched its GTX 1080 lineup with, but features 10% faster memory, which is factory-overclocked even further. The card ships with clock speeds of 1771 MHz core, 1911 MHz GPU Boost, and 11.2 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory, against NVIDIA reference speeds of 1607/1733/10008 MHz (core/boost/memory).

    The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme 11 Gbps features a custom-design PCB with a strong VRM that draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, to support the massive factory-overclock. It features a triple-slot IceStorm cooling solution by ZOTAC, which features a trio of 100 mm fans that ventilate a large dual-stack aluminium fin heatsink. The company didn't reveal pricing, although it is expected that this card replaces the older 10 Gbps memory-equipped AMP! Extreme.

    So the only difference is a memory boost from 10.8GHz - 11.2GHz. I could overclock my 10.8GHz one to more than this lol. Also, I'll bet the performance improvement for all these faster clocked cards is so small that it can only be noticed with a benchmark.

    @W1zzard you've gotta dump the BIOS from your review card into the GPU database. :)

    Well to do that memory boost it is using different memory ICs.

    I know they're higher rated, but the clock speed difference is tiny, all of 400MHz.
