Zotac GTX 580 AMP²! Review

Rating: 8.0.

Nvidia's GTX590 has been launched to a mixed reception and with the array of VRM hardware related issues many people are turning their attention to the GTX580, which could still be Nvidia's finest hour. Many 580's have won KitGuru's highest awards and rightly so because this solution still remains the fastest single GPU graphics card on the market.

We recently reviewed the Zotac GTX580 AMP! and felt that while it was a great card that the price point was all wrong, especially as it included a reference nVidia cooler. Today we look at the GTX 580 AMP²! which is supplied with a custom, dual fan cooler.

Now this is more like it!

The previous Zotac GTX580 AMP! featured a rather lame reference heatsink, which seems a poor choice for a flagship card, many months after launch.

The Zotac GTX 580 AMP²! ships with a 815mhz core clock, an increase from 772mhz on the reference card, and the 3GB of GDDR5 memory is overclocked from 1002mhz to 1026mhz.
