Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Omega Core Edition Graphics Card Review



Starting with the input and output panel, you can see that the Zotac GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Omega Core Edition features a HDMI (4K @ 60 Hz), three DisplayPorts (4K @ 60 Hz), DVI port (2560×1600) for your convenience.


Opposite of the PCI Express 3.0 x16 connector, you will find two 6-Pin PCIe power connector ports, as well as two SLI slots for up to 4-way SLI support. zotac_gtx970-amp_fans-fullAt the top of the graphics card we can see Zotac’s custom IceStorm cooling system, which features three 80mm fans, a large aluminium heatsink, which spans the entire length of the card and is complete with 3 large copper heat-pipes for increased heat dissipation.
