ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! Graphics Card Review

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! is an excellent graphics card that isn’t anything overly flashy.

Pricing for this card comes in at $449, which is actually one of the cheaper options when you are on the hunt for a GTX 980. ZOTAC’s competitors are coming in anywhere from $50-$150 more. You really can’t go wrong, especially if you are in the market for one of the latest Nvidia graphics cards.


The one thing we found to put us off ease, just a tad, was the cooling performance. This card can probably pump out some extra FPS provided the cooling method was more efficient. You could probably say that this is nit-picking, considering at times this card teetered on the edge of 200FPS, but when we see our card increase in temperature about 53C, it puts us a little off ease.

  1. Fantastic Review Chris. (btw I love the graphs)

    • Thanks for the feedback Donny! It was a great card to review and worth every minute spent on putting this data together.

      I had a couple, very knowledgable, teachers a while back give me some advice that I will never forget. I owe them much for what I know today.
