The ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions receive a completely revamped cooling system that delivers superior cooling performance with reduced noise levels.

The revamped cooling system features a heatsink made of a pure copper base and heat pipes attached to pure aluminum fins for maximum cooling performance that delivers class-leading air-cooled performance on the ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions. A pair of 92mm high-performance fans delivers optimum airflow while minimizing noise levels for a perfect balance of noise and performance with the ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions.

“ZOTAC is always on the forefront of technology when it comes to our graphics cards. The latest ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions are the result of our outstanding engineering capabilities,” Mr. Berger added.

The ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions receive an exclusive look that matches the performance. Both ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 480 AMP!® Edition and GTX 470 AMP!® Edition receive unique black heatsink covers with orange fans for a stylish look that shows off the high-performance nature of the AMP!® Editions.

The ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 400 series AMP!® Editions receive supercharged clock speeds for an extra performance boost.
