Zotac RTX 2080 Super AMP Overview
Taking a first look at the Zotac RTX 2080 Super AMP it has the familiar style and lines we know Zotac graphics cards for. You have a gunmetal grey shroud that covers the top part of the card and. For those wondering about length the card itself is only 298 mm long.
Zotac is actually using the same cooling solution that they used on the RTX 2080 Amp Maxx. This is not uncommon to see as many AIBs are using older cooling solutions and designs for their Super cards. This cooling solution is made up of two 100mm cooling fans that sit on top of heatsink fin array with 5 nickel-plated copper heatpipes. The fans can actually be controlled independently which is nice and the fans will turn off completely when there is not load on the GPU.
Looking at the card from the side we can see that this is definitely one of the thinner cards we’ve seen. It is basically a 2-slot card, many cards we’ve reviewed recently are around 2.5-slot. Looking at the card from the side you can see the die-cast metal jacket brace that covers the entire board. It not only provides structural integrity for the card, but also helps with heat dissipation. On the side of the card that will show when you have it installed there is a Zotac Gaming logo in the center which will light up with RGB lighting when you have your system powered on. Towards the end of the card are your power connections which are two 8-pin PCI-Express connections.
Flipping the card over to the back there is a full-cover metal backplate. It has the Zotac Gaming logo towards the end and says “Live to Game towards the center.
When it comes to display outputs you have three DisplayPort and one HDMI. Missing is the USB-C VirtualLink connection.
