Zotac Amp! Edition GeForce GTX 480 Graphics Card

OverClock Intelligence Agency
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Up until late last year, the GeForce GTX 480 was NVIDIA's golden child. Time has since passed the 400 series by and the high-end 500 series cards now hold that title, but that doesn't mean this card should be dismissed just yet. As evident by our benchmark results here today, the GTX 480 still has plenty of life left in the tank and should be able to keep up with most new games for the foreseeable future.

Zotac GTX 480 AMP! Edition VideoCard Review

18 July 2010
  • Excerpt: By now, we all know that NVIDIA's flagship GeForce GTX 480 is a powerful graphics card. For most systems, it provides a lot more GPU muscle than is even necessary, but that's OK with us. We're sure there are many enthusiasts out there that consider overkill a good thing. Unfortunately, the card in its reference form is not perfect and has its own set of flaws that might turn off some consumers, namely excessive heat and noise.
  • Pros: Fastest GTX 480 available, Quiet, Run amazingly cool, Requires less power than reference GTX 480, Lifetime warranty
  • Cons: Expensive, Triple slot form factor

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 480 AMP! Edition

26 May 2010
  • Summary: It looks like ZOTAC did the right thing partnering up with Zalman. At about 5% faster, the GeForce GTX 480 Amp! Edition offers a solid performance improvement over NVIDIA's reference design. Thanks to the VF3000 thermal solution from Zalman this doesn't mean that the card overheats or has to be noisy like a leafblower to handle the heat. When compared to the reference design, ZOTAC's latest card is about 20°C cooler.
  • Pros: Considerably lower temperatures than reference design, Overclocked out of the box, Significantly lower power consumption thanks to lower temperatures, Reasonably priced, Good overclocking potential, Native HDMI output, GDDR5 memory, Lower power draw than reference design, Support for DirectX 11, Support for NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround, Support for CUDA, PhysX and 3D Vision
  • Cons: Very noisy fan in idle, Requires three slots in the system, DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while

  • Excerpt: Zotac have sent us along their top model GTX 480 for review. This differs from the stock GTX 480 in that it has a core clock of 756Mhz, shader of 1512Mhz, and memory speed of 3800Mhz. So it should have a nice bump in performance over the stock GTX 480.
  • Pros: Big factory overclock, Custom cooling, Quieter than stock
  • Cons: Large power requirements

Expert Review

13 October 2010
  • Summary: Einleitung Ein paar Monate nach dem Launch der DX11 Serie von ATI, hat NVIDIA nun auch die erste DX11 Generation am Markt etabliert. Dem "FERMI" getauften Chip eilt allerdings ein zweifelhafter Spitzname "Thermi" voraus. Es ist kein Geheimnis das die GTX 465/470 und GTX 480 Karten relativ heiß und laut werden können, schließlich beherbergt der 40nm Chip 3 Mrd. Transistoren die eine große Hitze erzeugen können und nicht gerade sparsam im Verbrauch sind.

Zotac GTX480 AMP

13 October 2010
  • Summary: Jeder Test geht einmal zu Ende, da macht dieser keine Ausnahme. Die Zotac GTX 480 AMP macht in der Praxis einen sehr guten Eindruck. Die Karte ist schnell, der Kühler hat nie Probleme und noch Reserven fürs Übertakten und die Lüfter bleiben immer angenehm ruhig. Einzig der Verbrauch ist zu hoch, aber diejenigen die rund 500  in eine Grafikkarte investieren, werden über diesen "Makel" hinwegsehen.

Zotac GeForce GTX 480 AMP! Limited Edition - Das Monster im Griff?

8 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Intro Als NVIDIA die GeForce GTX 480 offiziell vorstellte, erfuhr man nicht wirklich Lob. Erst sehr spät gaben die GTX-400-Grafikkarten im Markt ihr Stelldichein, traten aber bei Leistungsaufnahme und Lautstärke nicht zeitgemäß auf. Zotac schickt uns nun ihre GeForce GTX 480 AMP! Limited Edition ins Haus und verspricht einiges deutlich besser zu machen. Wir haben die Karte auf Herz und Nieren getestet.

Zotac GTX 480 AMP! : Le GTX 480 sous son vrai visage ?

14 June 2010
  • Summary: Un GeForce GTX 480 qui ne chauffe pas trop et n’explose pas les tympans en charge, c’est possible ! Nous l’avons vu dans les tests, le ventirad Zalman VF-3000 utilisé par Zotac sur sa GTX 480 AMP! offre un grand bol d’air frais au GPU haut de gamme nVIDIA qui avait été tant critiqué à son lancement. Grâce au ventirad le niveau sonore en charge est tout à fait raisonnable alors que le dégagement calorifique est inférieur à celui d’un Radeon HD 5870 !
