Final Thoughts

ZOTAC, you've done it again: you've mastered the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti with the best GTX 1080 Ti that I've tested so far. In my arsenal, is the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11G, the awesome MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G, and the ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Strix OC.

ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition has enough power to win against all of the custom GTX 1080 Ti cards I've tested so far, and especially in 4K - and our new 5K and 8K benchmarks. In the memory bandwidth starved testing that I've discovered in Unigine's new Superposition benchmark, the overclocked 11GB of GDDR5X on the ZOTAC GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition really comes into play.

I wasn't able to get the GPU past 2075MHz or so, but the GDDR5X clocked from its overclocked setting of 11.2GHz, to 12GHz - resulting in a huge 527.9GB/sec of memory bandwidth. Considering that HBM1 on the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X had 512GB/sec and the new GTX 1080 Ti has 480GB/sec - 527.9GB/sec is a massive achievement. It helps memory bandwidth starved benchmarks in 5K and 8K, which kinda blew my mind. Bring on HBM2 and the Radeon RX Vega in Superposition - but until then, ZOTAC has the Superposition benchmark champion award with the GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition.

If you want the fastest graphics card known to man, it's right here: ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition - ready for gaming now, and in the future.

The Bottom Line: ZOTAC has made the fastest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card available with the GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition. Our card hit 12Gbps overclocked on GDDR5X, up from 11.2Gbps - with some massive results in our new 5K and 8K benchmarks. Kick ass work, ZOTAC!
