ASUS GTX 980 vs MSI GTX 980 vs Gigabyte GTX 980 vs zotac gtx 980 Comparison, Which one is better?

The latest released flagship graphics card of GeForce GTX 980 by NVIDIA, with Maxwell architecture, has the biggest feature that it completely breaks the record of the performance per watt of the flagship graphics card. With the emergence of these two cards, the structure and competition mode of the traditional flagship graphics card market will change, the era of players focusing only on the performance rather than the experience of the game may have come to an end, and the era that the graphics card again becomes a tool of enjoying games is coming.

The performance per watt means a lot for graphics cards, higher performance per watt represents not only a lower threshold of the use and maximized unit performance, but also means that players do not need to care about such negative factors as noise, high temperature, high power consumption, game lag and even game settings and so on, which are complicated but seen as certain symbols by part of the traditional DIY players, so that they can pay more energy and attention to the process of the game.

Haswell is now also present in the ZOTAC ZBOX nano

The smallest models from Zotac now feature the fourth generation of Intel Core processors.

Last November, the PC ZBOX from Zotac were given Intel Haswell processors, and now it’s time for the smallest ZBOX Nano, specifically the ID68 and the ID69, which will feature Intel Core i5 4200U and los Intel Core i7 4500U processors respectively.

Fight of Titans: Zotac GTX 780 Amp! vs ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU OC Comparison

Two GTX 780 GPUs that leave the reference model way behind to offer proprietary designs with better frequencies, improved cooling systems and more effective noise reduction.

Introduction

Nvidia has done a great job with their reference models, but there is always room for improvement and the two models we’ll review today will demonstrate just that. These two graphics cards are a dream come true for those who want the absolute best; to improve the performance to the maximum level, they have high-end noise and temperature control systems. These models are the dream of every gamer, and today we will not only review them, but also pit them against each other and compare them.

ASUS Geforce GTX 780

ASUS Geforce GTX 780 DirectCU OC.

The design of this GPU is simply amazing. It’s quite bigger than the average graphics card, and the cooling system uses big nickel-plated copper heat pipes that transport the heat from the components through a massive aluminum-made radiation system.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti Destroyer TSI.

This is the uncommonly long name of a graphics card based on one of the most balanced chips from Nvidia’s GTX 600, which features over clock and a cooling system with two fans.

Nvidia’s GTX 700 series has been on the market for a while now, however, there’s still not a model of this series to substitute the 650 series or its “TI” variant, and the GTX 760 is just one step above in performance and Price. Zotac has released a new graphics cards with this improved version of the GPU GTX 650 Ti.

GeForce GTX 650 Ti

At first sight, we can notice its cooling system is quite uncommon, as it features two 70-mm fans and an aluminum-made heat sink right next to the chip and memories –in other words, it doesn’t have heatpipes-. The size of the card is also slightly bigger than the conventional GTX 650. The speed of its GPU reaches 1033 MHz, an improvement over the 928 MHz of the reference model. The 2 GB GDDR5 memory also offers a better performance, surpassing the 5.400 MHz of the base model with a 6.000 MHz speed.

It only needs one 6-pin PCIe connector, two HDMI 1.4a ports, and two DVI ports, protected from electromagnetic interference.

For now, the release of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti Destroyer TSI has only been confirmed for China.

ZOTAC H87-ITX WiFi, mini-ITX format mother board with H87 chipset.

ZOTAC’s new motherboard arrives to the market with its mini-ITX format and H87 express chipset from Intel. It offers support for Intel Core Haswell processors, and provides all the features and connectivity you need.

ZOTAC H87-ITX

It features a WiFi card with double antenna and support for Bluetooth 4.0 integrated on the board, 4 6 Gbps SATA ports with support for various kinds of RAID, 6 USB 3.0 ports in the front and 6 USB 2.0 in the back

It also features a PCI Express 16x port for graphics cards and a 6 Gbps mSATA. It also has an integrated sound card with 8 channels, with analog and digital S/PDIF y HDMI outputs. And in regards to video ports, it features HDMI 1.4a, DVI and DisplayPort.

To accompany the CPU, it has two DDR3 1600 MHz memory slots and a maximum of 16 GB. The Price is still unknown, but since the model with H77 chipset is around 100 USD, we can expect a similar price.
