Zotac GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Extreme Review

Up Close

Whilst Corsair might have adopted yellow as the colour scheme for their gaming range of peripherals, and the MSI Lightning often comes with yellow accents, Zotac have been the yellow brand for as long as we can remember and it's nice to see them sticking with it even in this modern age of RGB lighting.

The front of the cooler looks the business with a combination of some very trick fans, carbon effect background and plenty of real estate for the RGB Lighting to do its thing. The AMP! Extreme is by no means the first cooler to experiment with fans that aren't shaped in the manner you might expect, so we look forward to discovering if this particular solution provides cooler temperatures without increasing the noise level.

The backplate will probably divide opinion amongst you in the same way it has in the OC3D Office. Even now we can't quite decide if it looks cool like the type of warning you'd see near the exhausts of a military jet or whether it just looks a little tacky. We're sure you'll let us know in our forums.

The heatsink part of the cooler if extremely deep and thick. We can't remember seeing a card with quite this much metal underneath the shroud. As you can see from the later shots though once the card is installed everything is well covered, so it looks really good. Either way this is a beefy bit of hardware that promises good cooling performance.

The inputs and outputs of the AMP! Extreme follow the standard nVidia pattern of 8+8pin PCIe power inputs and the usual selection of HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort outputs.

I don't understand why you mentioned the 1070Ti beating the 1080 in your conclusion when it's clear drivers are at play. Look at Hitman for instance. It's absurd that the AMP! Extreme 1070Ti can beat the 1080 Strix by around 7%. Seriously, take one of your non-reference GTX 1080's (maybe if you still have the 1080 Strix, or even use your own 1080), benchmark it with new drivers and put it up against this 1070Ti. If the 1070Ti still beats the 1080, then your graphs and reviews are accurate. If it doesn't, your graphs are wrong and your conclusion is wrong and you are giving your viewers the wrong impression. That's not acceptable in my books. But that's just me.Quote

Say what you mean man

That aside (I agree with you BTW, once drivers change everything does need re-benching) Are you watching XFX? are you wat-ching etc.

That's how to make a nice looking GPU.Quote

I've said this before so I'm going to sound an angry soccermom, but nothing was done about it. I wouldn't have minded much if it wasn't mentioned in the conclusion, but TTL actually said, "Its ability to trump the GTX 1080 on a regular basis has to be something to make everyone sit up and take notice." You're right. It makes people sit up and notice, but not for the reasons he's suggesting. That's not cool. Sorry, but I don't trust these reviews. Prove me wrong.Quote

We are overclocking the 1070 Ti's because Nvidia wont let the vendors do it - the 1080's we didnt - its weird but its just our way of showing our dislike to Nvidia because they wont let the vendors sell overclocked cardsQuote
