The Zotac GeForce GeForce 780 Ti AMP! comes with a 15% Core overclock and a 3% overclock to the memory. We will later in the review see what this means for performance. A hint; it helps.

Some of the new features of the GeForce 780 Ti are: 

  • GPU Boost 2: Same feature as on the GTX 780 and the GTX Titan where the GPU is dynamically overclocked.
  • Nvidia display overclocking: the ability to push a compatible display to allow for higher refreshrate than 60 Hz
  • Video encoding: Kepler features a dedicated H.264 video encoder called NVENC.
  • Adaptive vsync: Adaptive VSync is Nvidia’s way of providing a smooth game playability even when the frame rates falls below 60 fps.
  • Game streaming: With this card in the system you can stream games to a Nvidia Shield. It also sounds like we might  see some more game streaming support in the future.
  • Shadowplay: We now can record game videos via Nvidia Shadowplay.

For more information about these features and more head over to our first GeForce 780 Ti-article.

Naturally the Zotac GeForce GeForce 780 Ti AMP! comes with its own features too.

The main feature apart from the overclock is the Triple Silencer Enhanced cooler with three fans which promises not only to be much quieter than the reference cooler but also keep the card cooler.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
