ZOTAC has six products based on the GeForce GTX 970, with two of them being the Core Edition. The two Core Edition products are the one we have here today, the GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition, and the GTX 970 AMP! Omega Core Edition.
The big difference between them is that the Extreme Core Edition is the bigger brother, while the Omega Core Edition is the little brother. The Omega Core Edition features a more military themed cooler, while the Extreme Core Edition features a cooler that we'll give you a closer look at in a few moments. The big difference between the two Core cards is in their Core Clocks. Here's the difference between the two:
- Extreme Core Edition: 1228MHz / 1380MHz (Base/Boost Clocks)
- Omega Core Edition: 1152MHz / 1304MHz (Base/Boost Clocks)
So as you can see, we have 76MHz additional Base Clock applied to the Extreme Core Edition, which results in an increased Boost Clock of 1380MHz, versus 1304MHz.
ZOTAC has used the triple-fan IceStorm cooler with Carbon ExoArmor on the GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition. This cooler is thin enough to allow ZOTAC to cram the card into a dual-slot design, but it's also unbelievably quiet.
The cooling technology used is nearly identical to that found on the GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Edition card we reviewed not too long ago, but without the OC+ and LIGHT.id technologies.
