Right off the bat, I didn't expect the card to be consuming too much power. We know that virtually all of the GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards will have our total system power consumption numbers at under 250W, but with two 6-pin PCIe power connectors, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition should be quite low.
While the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition was using around 300W of power during our testing, in some games and benchmarks it was hovering at around 250-280W. For the most part, your entire system will chew through less than 300W thanks to NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture.
With a triple-fan cooler, I thought the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition would be a louder card than usual. Not too loud, but something that I would have to write about, but that's not the case. As you can see below, it's actually the quietest card we've tested thus far.
Anyone who purchases a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition, or any ZOTAC card for that matter, can use the company's FireStorm.
We took a deeper in our ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition review.
