ZOTAC Unveils Custom-Design GeForce GTX 680 AMP! Edition and 4 GB Edition
ZOTAC unveiled two new GeForce GTX 680-based graphics card products, the first is a custom-design AMP! Edition 2 GB (part#: ZTGTX680-2GD5AMPR001), and the other is one that sticks to NVIDIA reference design cooler and PCB, but packs double the memory amount (part#: ZTGTX680-4GD5R001). The ZOTAC GTX 680 AMP! Edition uses a swanky-looking triple-slot cooling solution which packs a large aluminum fin stack to which heat is conveyed by four copper heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by two 90 mm PWM-controlled fans. The AMP! Edition comes with clock speeds of 1,110 MHz (core base), 1,176 MHz (core boost), and 6008 MHz memory, against NVIDIA reference speeds of 1,006/1,058/6008 MHz.

The GeForce GTX 680 OC 4 GB Edition, on the other hand, retains NVIDIA reference board design augmented by ZOTAC's swanky orange stickers. The card packs double the memory amount (4 GB vs. 2 GB reference), which could come handy with 3D Vision Surround setups. This card sticks to NVIDIA reference clock speeds, with 1,006 MHz (core base), 1,058 MHz (core boost), and 6008 MHz (memory). Both cards feature the same display output layout, of two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort, and 2x 6-pin PCIe power inputs. Both cards include Assassin's Creed 3-game packs. In Japan, both cards are priced the same, at 60,000 JPY (US $750).

Why would you swap the fan? The whole purpose of this card ( and a large part of the price ) is the third party cooler.

You'd have to be pretty thick to pay the extra cost for this card and take the cooler off, considering that's why it costs more.

Heavy AA can also eat a few hundred megs on top of it, especially for nVidia cards which have so many options because of nVidia Inspector. 4GB is no longer a waste.

I'd buy a 4GB GTX 680 if they didn't cost their own weight in gold.

The Price for a 4GB Model is really acceptable here in Holland. Between 575 - 615.

Ludicrous pricing in UK. Hell even the vanilla 680 is ridiculously priced.

Once the 7950 hits 250 I will bite there, but 500-550 for this.

NV can ram it.
