I've reviewed a bunch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards now, where I'm finally down to one of the last ones in my near unlimited arsenal; the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm. The GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm from ZOTAC is one of the most interesting GTX 980 Ti cards I've tested, as it has the most unique cooling setup of all of the GM200-powered cards.
What does the ArcticStorm do differently? ZOTAC has included a triple-fan cooling solution with an integrated water block that can be used to water cool the card. It's an impressive change of direction from ZOTAC, something that makes the GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm easily stand out from the competition.
The GTX 980 Ti market is filled with great cards, and this is why ZOTAC needs to be different. The GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme was one of the best cards we've ever tested, but the ArcticStorm is a totally different card. While it won't be the fastest GTX 980 Ti, it has some huge overclocking headroom - and even more if you take into consideration that we have the ability to water cool the card.
The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm has the same GPU and associated technologies as the rest of the GTX 980 Ti cards on the market. We have 2816 CUDA cores, 176 TMUs, and 96 ROPS spread out on a GPU with 8 billion transistors.
We have the usual 6GB of GDDR5 clocked at 7GHz, on a 384-bit memory bus. There's a 250W TDP on the card, so you won't require some crazy 1000W+ PSU to power the GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm.
Availability & Price
ZOTAC has priced its GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm at $769.99, with the card available right now on Amazon.
