ZOTAC GTX 580 Amp! Edition

Established in 2006, ZOTAC is relatively new to the industry. The company manufactures graphics cards, motherboards, and mini-PCs. It derives its name from two words, zone and tact. On the graphics side, they are an exclusive NVIDIA AIB partner and regularly offer pre-overclocked Amp! Edition models.

ZOTAC makes a couple of GTX 580 variations.There's the basic reference design card, clocked at 772MHz, and their Amp! Edition which is set to 815MHz. Like the MSI M2D15D5/OC, the Amp! Edition is physically identical to every other stock GTX 580 available. The biggest advantage it has over the other two cards in this round up is the lifetime warranty it provides its owners once they register the product. Both Gigabyte and MSI offer only 3 years of coverage.


The bundle includes user guides, utilities disk, two PCIe power adapters, a DVI to VGA adapter, and the Prince of Persia game. The disk provides several programs such as the Firestorm OC utility, vReveal 2.0, Nero Vision Xtra, Cooliris, XBMC, and Kylo.
