Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 AMP Review: Cooler Than Nvidia’s Founders Edition

Performance Results: 2560x1440

The GeForce RTX 2080 has no trouble at 2560x1440. If you own a high refresh rate QHD monitor, expect Zotac’s implementation to serve up blistering frame rates in today’s games at their most taxing quality settings.

The Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 AMP is only rated for 30 MHz more than Nvidia’s Founders Edition card, so it’s no surprise to see both 2080s fare similarly across our benchmark suite. At stock clock rates, there’s very little difference to report.

    "Just buy it", right? Nevermind that it's essentially the same performance as a card that costs hundreds less...

    Hey John Nemesh, when your whole life flashes before your eyes, how much of it do you want to spend trolling every Tom's Hardware article with "Just buy it"? Not everyone shares the same opinion as Avram Piltch; you don't have to be a sheep and spread the toxicity.

    I just picked up a refurb GTX 1080 a few days ago for $430, I couldn't wait, my 1060 6GB was giving me issues and the warranty was about to expire at microcenter (so it was $250ish with the trade up, including a new 2 year microcenter warranty). After reviewing these benchmarks I feel good knowing I made the right decision. Saving $400+ while only losing 5-25 FPS is an easy decision for me.

    Lol ' prices change rapidly '. No, no they don't, not for consumers buying thru normal channels, including online. Wish they didn't spread misinformation like that, smh.

    Price did change rapidly for 2080Tis. Keep the ''Lol'' to yourself because pretty sure it's not possible for you to follow stores from different countries to check availability of some of these AIB cards. Maybe you aren't even a potential buyer!
