Introduction



NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti was released this June. Built on the same GM200 GPU as the GeForce Titan X, it has fewer shaders (2816 vs 3072). While the GTX 980 Ti's GPU is still produced on a 28 nanometer process at TSMC in Taiwan, it comes with the fantastic power efficiency optimizations of the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, which promises lower power draw, higher performance, and reduced fan noise all at the same time.

Our review of the reference design GTX 980 Ti revealed that it is barely slower than the Titan X, which means custom designs could surpass Titan X performance at a much lower price point.



Today, we are reviewing Zotac's flagship GeForce GTX 980 Ti using the "Amp! Extreme" branding. The card comes with a nice triple-slot all-metal cooler, large GPU overclock out of the box, and overclocked memory.

With a retail price of $680, the ZOTAC GTX 980 Ti Amp! Extreme is also cheaper than competing models, like the MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning for a whopping $100 more.
