Zotac's GeForce 8800 GTX AMP ReviewPosted on 2007-07-13 14:35:26 by Thomas De Maesschalck
On the whole, Zotac's first foray into our labs has been a pretty good one. Of course there is very little differentiation, aside from clockspeeds, from most other board partners out there because Nvidia’s high-end cards are all built by a third party contractor. However, what we have seen is that even a relatively new manufacturer can polish Nvidia’s now nine month old GeForce 8800 GTX and create a pretty good product. We’re a little disappointed that Zotac didn’t increase the shader clock speed, but considering the relatively small performance difference this isn’t a massive issue. Games are becoming more shader heavy and as proven by the GeForce 8800 Ultra, the higher shader clock results in ultimately higher performance even despite a lower “core” clock.
