Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go

 

With an already factory overclocked GPU and RAM, we push the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition a little further, where we were able to reach 1324MHz on the Core, up from the already super-fast 1253MHz. This resulted in a Boost clock of 1425MHz, up from 1355MHz. Not too much more, but it does bump the performance up a little bit.

Power Consumption

 

Most of the aftermarket GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards are sitting at around 390-400W of power, with the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition card sitting right on 400W of power. It jumps up a little bit when we overclock it, though.

As you can see, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition uses another 30W of power when overclocked, for a total of 430W power consumption.

 

 

Sound Testing

 

With three big fans on the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, we expected the card to make quite a bit of noise when it was manually pushed to 100%, and it did. But, during all of our testing, the card was silent - which is a big plus, considering its massive performance.
