ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm Video Card Review

Final Thoughts

 

ZOTAC has one of the best GTX 980 Ti lineups on the market, with a card that hits the stock GPU clock levels right up to the AMP! Extreme and ArcticStorm variants. I still think the AMP! Extreme is the best of the lot, but the ArcticStorm is something that stands out on its own because it is just so different.

Hybrid cards are not anything new, but it is great to see ZOTAC doing this and standing out from the crowd. If you have a system that is already cooled under water, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm is going to be something you will have your eye on.

 

 

You are not going to buy another card if you have water cooling ready to go unless you grab another card and then secure a water block for it and do all of the installation and hassle yourself. This is a video card that sits in between that, where it is ready for stock cooling, or you can throw your water cooling on top and start driving those clock speeds up.

 

ZOTAC, please don't stop pushing the boundaries like this - just as you said on the back of the card: "PUSH THE LIMIT".

The Bottom Line: ZOTAC has one of the most unique GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards on the market, where you can use the stock cooling or go water very easily. The GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm has some great OC headroom, too.
