TechPowerUP Zotac GeForce 9800 GT Amp! Edition
Yesterday NVIDIA launched their “new” GeForce 9800 GT Series. You wonder why the new is in quotation marks? This time NVIDIA really went with the easy way. The GeForce 9800 GT is the same card with the same specifications as the GeForce 8800 GT. With GeForce 9 you get a few added features though, which are Purevideo HD and support for Hybrid SLI and Hybrid Power, the latter two working only on supported motherboards with chipsets from NVIDIA.
At least Zotac had a little bit of creativity up their sleeves and created an Amp! Edition card which comes with a cool orange PCB and higher clocks than the NVIDIA reference design.
