ZOTAC has come along over the last couple of years and positioned itself as a company that makes some of the best NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on the market, which it displayed in the release of its GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, which was my personal favorite of all of the GTX 980 Ti cards.
The company has fused its knowledge from the success of the GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, and together with the trio of new technologies included in NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080. Thanks to the 16nm FinFET process and Pascal architecture, we have a super-fast, but very efficient GPU. Mixed with ZOTAC's expertise in cooling and card design, we have the fastest GeForce GTX 1080 we've reviewed so far - and I have a lot of them.
ZOTAC even teases on its website that the GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme "takes performance to the maximum. ZOTAC engineering pushes the limit and AMP's performance levels to an entirely new class of performance". Yep, you're right ZOTAC.
Pricing & Availability
With NVIDIA pricing its GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition at $699, ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme can be found on Amazon for $874.99 - which is a bit high right now, but even with the higher prices applied, it's still a great value for the money card. This is thanks to its improved cooler, added performance, and better looks than the GTX 1080 Founders Edition.
