With the AMP Performs a series Zotac graphics card series for special requirements, besides maximum overclocking performance by a sophisticated cooling system is on the agenda, with the high-end graphics cards will be defeated in the field of thermals. The Zotac GeForce GTX 680 AMP is the newest member of the AMP Family and relies on Nvidia's fastest graphics chip, in the following test, we look more closely at the graphics card once.
By the Zotac GeForce GTX 680 AMP We test our first graphics card based on Nvidia's new graphics chip GK104 in addition to its own cooler design, the GTX 680 AMP Moreover, by working from overclocked and compared to Nvidia's reference model achieves a slightly higher performance.
The GTX 680 is delivered AMP, As befits a high-end graphics card is one printed in a large cardboard box, in addition to the typical dishes such as two 6 pin power adapter, VGA adapter and driver CD are the GTX 680 AMP also equal to 3
games at. With the complete Assassins Creed series (parts 1 to 3) is fuel enough play for hours with some exciting and Assassin's Creed Revelations, a relatively recent titles an SLI bridge is not in the delivery.
Visually, the GTX 680 AMP stands produced by a highly-acting beefy cooler seen from above, first into the two orange Zotac held 80mm axial fans are installed in the fall on an aluminum plate. These two axial fans are mounted on a long heat sink mounted, extending almost over the entire length and provide in addition to the GPU also any other components through the cooling fins with fresh air.
About four solid copper heatpipes, the cooler is a copper plate using "direct touch" associated with the GK104 is the Nvidia graphics chip. Due to this construction, the waste heat out only slightly from the slot cover from the housing, the rest of the exhaust air is discharged through the open design of the housing.
This is not a problem, but is the GTX 680 AMP Here's a well-ventilated housing ahead, because this will cause the body temperature in a short time assume a significant value especially in Midi-towers should be taken to prevent thermal problems due to the limited space on an adequate case cooling.
