June 24, 2008: HONG KONG: ZOTAC International (MCO) Ltd., announced today massive performance gains on NVIDIA’s GTX 280 high-end graphics card. The Zotac GTX 280 AMP! Edition boasts the world’s fastest core clock speed topping a stunning 700MHz out of the box, so-far unbeaten by any other manufacturer.
“Yet again Zotac has demonstrated its exceptional ability to design and engineer the fastest card on the market” claimed Carsten Berger, Marketing Director, Zotac,“Overclocking the GTX 280’s core by almost 100MHz is a fantastic achievement, but to then mass produce it and maintain a 5 year warranty is outstanding”.
Priced around£20-30 higher than a standard GTX 280, the AMP! Edition offers over a staggering 12% performance hike1 for less than a 5% price increase2 while Zotac’s standard GTX 280 card remains one of the lowest priced in the market. Zotac is also bundling Codemaster’s Racedriver: GRID game with both the GTX 280 and GTX 280 AMP! Edition.
“As the Zotac brand is relatively new to the graphics market many people are unaware of our fantastic products” Berger continued. Zotac first launched the 8800GT in 2007 which also proved to be the highest clocked in the industry.“We are continually offering the best performance, quality, reliability, warranty and most importantly, the ultimate in value for our customers” he concluded.
Zotac is currently NVIDIA’s fastest growing AIB partner thanks to the continued support of a loyal and expanding customer base.
