ZOTAC GeForce GTX 480 AMP! Edition Review 41

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 480 AMP! Edition Review

Packaging & Contents »



It has been two months since NVIDIA launched their GeForce GTX 480 Series. Now, ZOTAC has unveiled their GTX 480 Amp! Edition that uses a non-reference air cooling solution. At this time the PCB design remains unchanged, but ZOTAC has increased the clock speeds to 756 MHz GPU and 950 MHz memory. This change should bring a healthy performance increase. ZOTAC also claims to use a special binning process which selects better overclocking cards to be used as AMP! Edition. Together with the customized Zalman VF3000 cooler the triple slot card promises to handle the increased heat without issues - has Zotac tamed the GeForce GTX 480 with an equally beastly cooler?
