GTX 480 AMP!
GTX 480 AMP! SLI
When looking at the thermal, noise and power performance of the Zotac cards we have a set of results which compare favourably to the reference design. Idle and load power barely change, despite the overclock and temperatures fall significantly from the standatd 90+ celcuis thanks to the Zalman cooler. The use of this cooler also allows Zotac to reduce noise levels by 10dBA in SLI mode when compared to a pair of reference cards.

As the AMP! Edition is already overclocked when it leaves the factory we didn't expect too much from it in this test. An increase of 20MHz core and 40MHz memory is reasonable as it takes us to 75/90MHz above stock.
