Zotac VS EVGA Card differences

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I bought an EVGA GeForce GTX 550Ti a while ago Its a great card. and Durable. I had a guy just give me a Zotac version of the card. I don't know how to tell if its the AMPed version or not. I can OC it to the same as the EVGA card but it seems to handle Games better than the EVGA card. So far I cant tell any difference between the two cards. Just that the Zotac Card is just barely 1/2 inch shorter. they both get just as hot during gaming. but The Zotac card just seems to handle games better by almost 10 Frames. Do any of you know the difference?

I would guess either you have the AMP! edition or the Zotac card did better in the silicone lottery.
What is the GPU clock reported in GPU-Z?
AMP! = 1000Mhz
Non-Amp = 900Mhz


Either way, time to SLI them jokers.
