The Radeon is superior in the newest game on our list. As for the GeForce series, the Zotac GTX 680 AMP! Edition is 8-9% ahead of the reference card from NVIDIA.
Cutting a long story short, the Zotac GeForce GTX 680 2GB AMP! Edition is one of the best original graphics cards with the GK104 Kepler processor. The increased GPU and memory clock rates make it 8-10% faster than the reference GTX 680 as well as the majority of original cards from other brands. The exclusive cooler, although not very quiet, ensures good protection against overheat, even if you dare overclock the card further. The attractive and robust packaging, numerous accessories, stylish exterior, cutting-edge Nvidia technologies and competitive pricing make this product the No.1 candidate for purchase among all GeForce GTX 680s.
We might criticize it for using the reference PCB but the latter fact didn’t prevent our sample from doing well in our overclocking tests whereas its long service life is promised by Zotac's extended 5-year warranty.
