AMP! Edition for Zotac and DirectCUII TOP Edition from ASUS compared

Good: Faster than GTX 580 and HD 7800 series, and performs on par with HD 7900 series while being cheaper than them. Great SLI performance, and custom heatsinks means cool & quiet operations. Also, most cards come bundled with Borderlands 2.
Bad: Nothing, really.
Price: AED 1,200

Zotac’s entry for the GTX 660Ti comes to us in the form of their AMP! Edition series, which comes with a custom heatsink on a custom PCB and the highest clocked speeds of any Nvidia partner. The fact that the Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition comes with a free Steam code for the upcoming Borderlands 2 is just icing on the cake. According to Nvidia, a lot of partner firms will be bundling the GTX 660Ti with Borderlands 2, which is a $60 proposition, making the GTX 660Ti a sub-$200 card in essence! Indeed the Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition which costs $329 will come to $270 when you exclude the cost of the game.

The Zotac GeForce GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition measures just 7.5-inches, making it a uniquely small and powerful card. The heatsink sits directly on top of the GPU and surrounding VRM and memory chips, with three copper heatpipes spreading out into the aluminum fins. The whole setup is cooled by two 75mm fans, topped up by a metal cover.

The small size, cool heatsink, highest factory overclock, and bundled code of Borderlands 2 makes the Zotac GeForce GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition one of the most desirable mid-range cards on the market right now.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
