When the GeForce GTX Titan X was released NVIDIA did not allow its AIC (add-in card) partners from coming up with custom-designed versions. It seems that Zotac has found a way around this either by using a loophole that allows partners to use “factory fitted water blocks” or NVIDIA could be loosening its custom-design policy with the launch of the GTX 980 Ti coming next week. In any case this bring us to Zotac’s GeForce GTX Titan X ArcticStorm Edition.
The card features a hybrid cooling solution which means you can add it to your custom liquid cooling loop or run it as a conventional air-cooled graphics card. It features a very impressive IceStorm triple fan heatsink, which has been carried over from the companies AMP! Omega cards.
The fans will stay off until the GPU reaches a temperature of 65°C or when the liquid cooling loop is active. The liquid cooling block is designed to cool the CPU, 12GB of VRAM and the cards VRM. The card as a pretty cool back-plate installed as well.
The card comes with a factory overclock of 1026 MHz core and 1114 MHz GPU Boost (compared to 1000 / 1086 MHz reference), the memory remains untouched at 7.00 GHz (effective). ZOTAC will be displaying the card at Computex 2015 and will be giving the card a worldwide release.
