An email from Zotac just arrived in our inbox announcing its newest graphics card, the GeForce 9800 GTX AMP! Edition.


It comes with all the usual 9800 GTX features except of course the AMP! Edition part means that it comes with a boost in performance via some factory overclocking.


A regular 9800 GTX reference cards includes a core clock speed of 675MHz, shader clock speed of 1688MHz and memory speed of 2200MHz DDR.


The AMP! Edition from Zotac features a core clock speed of 750MHz, shader clock speed of 1890MHz and memory speed of 2300MHz DDR. Zotac also throw in a free full version game for good measure, too. It's a little slower than the overclock Shane managed to achieve in our latest article but still good increase.


HONG KONG - Apr. 8, 2008 - ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd., an award-winning NVIDIA AIC, today announced it has raised the single GPU performance bar even higher with the new ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX AMP! Edition. Based on NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GTX graphics processor, the ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX AMP! Edition gives the GPU an extra shot of performance with supercharged core, memory and shader clock speeds.


The ZOTAC GeForce 9800 GTX AMP! Edition increases the core clock by 11-percent to 750 MHz for a healthy performance boost in DirectX 10 and OpenGL 2.1 based 3D games and applications. Memory performance also receives a 5-percent increase to 2.3 GHz to assist the increased graphics power.
