Summary: This card is powerful and other reviewers have provided feedback on that aspect of the card. So I am limiting my review to specific issues I had with this card. The #1 problem with this card is its size. You know how a regular GTX 480 is big right?
Summary: Very good card is hard to believe that this was $509 and now $309 that's a very good price drop, i went from a defective 570 gtx to this one and they perform quite the same, however this card has more video ram and i feel better having this card i will sli it later, one of the things i like the most...
Summary: This is a solid card. Very little heat is generated from this card with this size of cooler. It is more than powerful enough for any graphic needs as a stand alone card.(it takes up 3 slots) The reason I gave it a 4/5 star rating is the price has not dropped.
Summary: I wanted to revisit this post to be fair with this excellent card, below is my review rewritten to account for most recent experiences. ----------------------------------------------------- This card is great, excellent graphics very acceptable sound levels, a plus is that it already comes a bit...
Summary: amazing Card, if you want a gtx 480 i dont see any version to buy except this, i bought this after owning a gtx 480, the performance on stock clocks 700mhz isnt that much of a difference from my gtx 295 but when you oc this beast you find its real power this is the best gtx 480 version because it...
Summary: The Zotac Amp GTX 480 is one amazing card. First, the temps are insanely cooler compared to the temps on a stock GTX 480. While running Furmark, I reached only 68c degrees using xtreme burn-in mode. The funny part is that the fan speeds were only running at 44%.
Summary: I bought this one to replace my Zotac GTX260 I've been using for over a year. I had around 40% to 90% increase in frame rate depending on the game and setup. So far I was able to play Black Ops, BFBC2 and Medal of honour on maximum setting with 1920×1080 resolution flawlessly.
