Overview

NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ delivers the ultimate PC gaming experience. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary RTX platform, RTX graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. This is a whole new way to experience games.

AMP Extreme

Finely tuned for perfection to extract every ounce of speed. AMP Extreme is the ultimate piece of engineering set to be the strongest in its class out of the box.

ICESTORM 2.0

Our strongest cooling. A larger and thicker aluminum fin stack array in combination with five 8mm copper heat pipes, which four are straight, work in harmony to extract more heat than previous generation designs.

WRAPAROUND PROTECTION

Extending protection of the backside PCB and beyond, our signature metal wraparound backplate wraps around to the front, fusing design and protection into a single fluid union.

SPECTRA 2.0

Equipped with more powerful Addressable LEDs, lighting and color are now both more fluid and dynamic. Enable new lighting effects introduced solely for SPECTRA 2.0 hardware. Make the ZOTAC GAMING graphics card yours and personalize it to the theme of your gaming PC with just a few clicks. Easily change the color, brightness, or lighting mode to just your liking.

FREEZE

Featuring fan stop. An inspired innovation that enables your powerful graphics card to become silent while reducing the wear and tear on the fan system. Greater system stability is achieved with precision temperature gauging and wider temperature tolerance. Fans start and stop at their pre-defined threshold automatically so game on.

ACTIVE FAN CONTROL

Introducing Active Fan Control to enable smarter fans. Two individual fan controllers allow users to adjust fan rotations independently and apply increased airflow only to where and when it’s needed, reducing overall noise and increase longevity while still keeping things cool under the hood and performance going strong. It’s all done automatically so there’s nothing you need to do.

NEW FAN DESIGN

Quietly slice through the air, grab and generate wind, direct the flow, and extend the circulation. The all-new fan design performs the multi-stage sweep with each rotation with minimal effort. The multi-stage blades feature blade tips at the outer edge to generate multiple currents and a raised inner with a grooved curved path direct the flow more inwards to allow the airflow to touch and pull away more heat.

POWER BOOST

A control chip providing live electrical current regulation and instant electrical deviation responses. POWERBOOST reduces ripple noise, minimizes power fluctuations, and has a high temperature tolerance, resulting in a longer lasting AMPed graphics cards.

16+4 POWER PHASES

Spreading the load to 16 power phases means that no one power phase is overworked and building up too much heat. With more distribution of power, experience unparalleled stability operating at peak efficiency.

USB Type-C

Introducing the new standard connector that will power future Virtual Reality headsets. A single USB Type-C connection will enable future Virtual Reality experiences to be easier to set up, less cumbersome to use, and with less cables dangling about.

ALL-NEW FIRESTORM

Introducing the all-new ZOTAC GAMING FIRESTORM. Freshly designed with a more intuitive and minimal interface so you can get in and out quickly. Fine tune your ZOTAC GAMING Graphics Card with enhanced intelligence, adjust the SPECTRA lighting, or simply monitor the hardware status with the new FIRESTORM utility.

OC SCANNER

Getting more out of your ZOTAC GAMING GeForce graphics cards has never been easier. With the all-new OC SCANNER feature, we take the tedious trial and error and guesswork process out of the equation and drop it into a simple button press. Start the process, take a short break, and come back to a recommendation that is the most optimal settings for your graphics card.
