More GTX 1080 TI Models To Choose From

We praised the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 TI well enough on our Founders Edition review, but its performance is truly limited by its thermal solution. That being said, optimal performance under full load could be better especially under prolonged period of gaming. Sure, you could ramp up the fan speed but  by doing so, the balance between cooling performance and noise output is at stake. Now with Nvidia’s AIB partners around, specifically ZOTAC – it seems that our prayers are answered.

ZOTAC’s trinity of GTX 1080 TI cards are built with 3 rule sets. Basic, Performance, and Extreme. Basic is where the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti slots in, featuring a cooling solution that is similar to the Founders Edition – although we can say that it should be less intimidating when it comes to price point. PCB appears to be in-line with the Founders Edition too, so enthusiasts who’d like to slap in a water block designed for the card are pretty much welcome.

Next up would be the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP Edition. Clock speed and other GPU related specification are unknown at the moment, but this one is rocking a DVI output, a dual 8-pin power connector and dual 100mm fans for the cooling solution. The shroud design is dubbed as the ExoArmor.

ZOTAC-GTX-1080-TI-Models-6

If you really want the best, then the GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme should be up your alley. This thing is the most expensive card in the line up but it has the cooling solution and looks to back up the price tag. The graphics card also appears to feature a revamped RGB lighting, over the older AMP! Extreme cards. This one rocks dual 8-pin power connectors too, and has a custom PCB to accommodate the non reference cooling and 16+2 phase VRM unit. The new shroud design is dubbed as the Metallic ExoArmor.

ZOTAC included back plates on the higher tier models, while the reference one had nothing to cover its PCB.
