ZOTAC Avoids NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti Factory Overclocking Restrictions via OC Profile

NVIDIA's decision to prohibit AIB partners from factory overclocking their GTX 1070 Ti graphics is a decision that may not sit well with hardware enthusiasts, but it's one that makes the most sense from a business perspective. As it is, it's expected that overclocked versions of the GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards, which have come to offer a more compelling NVIDIA option against AMD's Vega 56 graphics card, will offer performance that is by all accounts comparable to that offered by its more expensive (and older) GTX 1080 graphics cards. So NVIDIA is just ensuring that its introduction of the GTX 1070 Ti with its $459 MSRP doesn't cannibalize sales of their higher tier graphics card through higher out-of-the-box performance via factory overclocking.

ZOTAC Unveils the GeForce GTX 1080 Arctic Storm

ZOTAC unveiled the GeForce GTX 1080 Arctic Storm graphics card (model: ZT-P10800F-30P). Built for liquid-cooled builds, the card comes with a factory-fitted, full-coverage water-block, paired with a strong VRM setup for the PCB, which shares its design with the GTX 1080 AMP Extreme. This block enables a factory-overclock of 1632 MHz core, 1771 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 10 GHz memory, compared to NVIDIA-reference clocks of 1607 MHz core, 1733 MHz GPU Boost.

The block's clear-acrylic top is studded with RGB LEDs, letting you use the ZOTAC FireStorm app to set color and lighting schemes. The block comes with G 1/4 fittings, with bundled 10 mm barbs supporting inner-diameter tubing. Finishing the package is a back-plate that runs the entire length of the PCB, and some more. The company didn't announce pricing, although one can expect this card to be priced above the GTX 1080 AMP Extreme.
