Detailed Look

 

ZOTAC showed off the GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition at CES 2015, and while I really enjoyed the dual-slot cooler thanks to its reduced thickness, the finish on the cooler didn't do much for me personally.

Here we have the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition in all its glory. The triple-fan cooler can be seen front and center, with its elaborate cooling system behind of those fans spotted, too.

On the back of the card, we have the metal backplate, which keeps the rear of the card much cooler during stress.

We have the usual Maxwell display output configuration here, with three DisplayPort, one HDMI 2.0 and a single DVI output.

We have SLI support, with four cards capable of being tethered together for some serious performance.

ZOTAC requires just two 6-pin PCIe power connectors, which will keep the power consumption down in smaller cases.
