Zotac GeForce 580 AMP! Edition 1.5GB GDDR5 PCIe
Includes copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
Overclocked out of the box.
Quieter than other cards in this performance class.
Better overclocking potential than reference design.
Reduced power consumption.
CHiL voltage regulator with I2C voltage control support.
Native HDMI output.
Overclocking speeds show good performance bump.
No temperature changes from stock speed.
Uses reference design cooler.
Still not as power efficient as AMD's designs.
Power draw limiter could complicate advanced overclocking.
Still limited to two active display outputs per card.
DirectX 11 relevance limited at this time.
Performance increase barely justifies the level of price increase.
