Zotac announces GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme, GTX 1060 6GB AMP+ with Faster Memory

by Donny StanleyApril 20, 2017

Today, ZOTAC has announced refreshed versions of their GeForce GTX 1080 AMP Extreme, and GeForce GTX 1060 AMP+. The new cards will feature NVIDIA’s new, faster 11 Gbps and 9.0 Gbps memory for the two GPUs.

Starting with the higher-end of the two, we have the ZOTAC GeForced GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme. This card is virtually identical to the previous version of the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme which the company debuted alongside the GeForce 10 series last year. However, this new model features faster 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, compared to the 10Gbps memory of the previous version.

Other specifications remain much the same, with factory clock speeds of 1771MHz core and 1911MHz boost. The faster 11Gbps memory chips have also been slightly factory overclocked speeds bringing the total memory speed to 11.2GHz. The card features a completely custom PCB with a solid VRM which is powered by a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The company also introduced a faster version of their GeForce GTX 1060 AMP, the aptly named GeForce GTX 1060 AMP+. This new card features the same overall design as the previous version but with faster clock speeds across the board. The card comes equipped with factory-overclock speeds of 1607 MHz core, 1835MHz boost and 9.0GHz (GDDR5) memory.

The card features a custom, short-length PCB and draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

 

There’s no word on pricing for either the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme or the GTX 1060 AMP+. Although, we’d expect them to be in line with the pricing of the current models, if not a bit higher.
