Zotac Announces Factory Overclocked GTX 770 Cards, AMP! Edition Is Fastest So Far
Not to be left out, GPU partner Zotac has announced its own set of graphics cards based on NVIDIA's GK-104 GTX 770 GPU called the GTX 770 and GTX 770 AMP! Edition. Both cards come with Zotac's custom dual fan cooler and have some impressive factory overclocks. In fact, the GTX 770 AMP! Edition is the fastest factory clocked GTX 770 so far, and is the only card to feature overclocked memory.
The Zotac Geforce GTX 770 features a GPU base clock of 1059 MHz and a GPU boost clock of 1098 MHz. It will be available with either 2GB or 4GB of GDDR5 memory. In either memory configuration, Zotac is keeping the GDDR5 at the stock clockspeed of 7010 MHz.
Meanwhile, the GTX 770 AMP! Edition has GPU clockspeeds of 1150 MHz base and an impressive 1202 MHz boost. However, the GTX 770 AMP! does not only feature an overclocked GPU, but overclocked memory at 7200 MHz.
The chart below compares the two Zotac graphics cards.
|Zotac GTX 770||Zotac GTX 770 AMP! Edition|
|GPU Base||1059 MHz||1150 MHz|
|GPU Boost||1098 MHz||1202 MHz|
|Memory||2GB or 4GB||2GB|

Both of the Zotac graphics cards also come with a Splinter Cell game bundle that includes three (digital download) games:
- Splinter Cell: Double Agent
- Splinter Cell: Conviction
- Splinter Cell: Blacklist (will be release later this summer)
As far as pricing and availability, the GTX 770 (ZT-70301-10P) is on sale now at Newegg for $400, but the 4GB GTX 770 and GTX 770 AMP! have not yet been released by the looks of it, and Zotac has not announced official pricing or ship dates yet. More information can be found here. The AMP! Edition has some impressive factory overclocks, and the benchmarks should be interesting.
