1080: Aorus or Zotac?

Gdourado
 Share

Hello, how are you? 

Any advice on the Aorus 1080 11gps vs the 1080 amp extreme?
With both costing the same, which is the better card?
From what I can tell, almost all 1080s cap out at 2050 core give or take, so it might be a matter of which has the better cooling solution with regards to temperature and noise, but please correct me if I am wrong.

 

The Aorus:

The Zotac:

Thank you.
Cheers

The Zotac AMP Extreme managed to do less efficient power delivery than FE despite having a lot more phases... avoid it unless it isn't significantly cheaper.

Also, you have to do a mod to the card to fix the cooler. (The cooler doesn't make contact with the VRM where it should).

A 1070 or flashed Vega 56 would be fine for that monitor, 1080 is overkill

Looking at pricing in spain 1070 is the way to go, Vega is 600 EU, not very worth it, 1070 pricing is still inflated there though.


You should have just kept that 980ti, OC'd it keeps up with pascal very well.

I guess that makes the Aorus the better one? And as a bonus it has the 11gps memory. 

Is the Aorus a good cooler?

It seems you're constantly upgrading your gpu just because of some minor performance increase. Be satisfied with your purchase, rather than constantly upgrading.

I already have a 1080.

I got a refund due to an rma and with the refund I can get either the Aorus or the amp. 

That's why I am asking between those two models.
