In tests the Zotac topped 700MHz straight out of the box - well, we presume the company plugged it in first - which, according to Nvidia is "so-far unbeaten by any other manufacturer."
Performance outweighs price
The new graphics card offers a massive 12 per cent performance hike over its now slower brethren, the GTX 280. But its only priced £20 to £30 higher. This equates to just a 5 per cent price rise - Nvidia's maths, not ours.
In a statement about the new graphics card, Carsten Berger, Marketing Director, Zotac, said: "Yet again Zotac has demonstrated its exceptional ability to design and engineer the fastest card on the market.
"Overclocking the GTX 280's core by almost 100MHz is a fantastic achievement, but to then mass produce it and maintain a 5 year warranty is outstanding."
The Zotac GTX 280 AMP! Edition is out now for around £450.
