Zotac GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme Tear-Down

Posted on June 30, 2017

With hours to spare until our Vega shipment arrives from a retailer, we put together a review of the Zotac 1080 Ti Amp Extreme – it’s in editing now, and still pending completion – and tore-down the card. The tear-down is live now on YouTube, and is embedded below.

As for the reference to the rubber bumper not making contact, that’s shown in the above photo. Note also that this bumper isn’t over the inductors, so it’s not going to impact coil whine, and it’s not making contact to the VRM heatsink. We already tested this and have data for it in the review.


Anyway, here’s the video:

We’ve got work to do on Vega and the Titan Xp, so this post is being kept brief. Stay tuned for the Amp Extreme review.
