Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme card arrives at Bjorn3D

We have already reviewed two Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards at Bjorn3d, both from eVGA (the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked and the EVGA GTX 980 Ti SuperClocked ACX 2.0+). Both cards performed very well and earned theirBjorn3D Gold Award. We have though eagerly been awaiting our firstZotac GTX 980 Ti card to review as we have been very impressed with their earlier offerings including the Zotac GeForce GTX980 AMP Omega Edition card. And today it arrived in our office! The Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme card.

So what is so special about this card which makes us salivating at the thought of putting it in our computer? It’s all about the specifications:

Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme

 

EVGA GTX 980 Ti SC

Core Clock 1253 MHz 1102 MHz
Core Boost Clock 1355 MHz 1190 MHz
Memory Clock 7220 MHz 7010 MHz

The clockspeeds out of the box are amazing. As far as we can see this is the fastest GTX980 Ti available right now. We cannot wait for the chance to bench it and then overclock it even more.

The box looks just like any other Zotac card. On the back we get a glimpse of the cool features the card comes with including a custom 3-fan cooling system.

This is a huge and heavy card. It definitely needs a case with lots of space. Notice the sticker saying that the fans can stop spinning under low load. It will be interesting to test that since our previous tested eVGA Superclocked-card did not do this.

Take a look at the cool fins on the fan. The have their own sub-fins which help make the fans 30% more efficient in removing heat while still bein “whisper quiet”.

The whole card is encased in “Carbon ExoArmor” which should help kep vibrations down and keep the card silent.

And so the work on the review starts …

We received the card today so it will be at least another week before the review is done but if you are interested in getting some sneak peaks on the scores or images from our review, subscribe to our newsletter:

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
