Zotac GTX680 AMP! Edition Review
Published: 8th May 2012 | Source: Zotac | Price: |
These are great times to be someone who loves hardware. With the release of the HD7970 AMD stole the Fastest Single GPU Crown from nVidia, who swiftly responded with the GTX680 and now, much like the UK Government, we have both companies sharing the title.
On test today is our first of the factory overclocked variants of the GTX680, the Zotac GTX680 AMP! Edition.
As many of you know from previous versions, the AMP! has always been one of the better hardcore cards around, with an excellent cooler and usually a pretty decent overclock too. So of course we have to see if the GTX680 keeps up this trend.
The first thing you notice is the 105MHz overclock on the GPU, and effective 600MHz overclock on the GDDR5. Considering that the GTX680 is no slouch anyway, this should really kick the performance up another notch.
