As the name implies it is a premium GPU sporting heavily oveclocked GTX 1070 core complete with ZOTAC custom cooler and various mighty options, along with a lot more. The basic GP102 layout of the AMP is identical for what you’d expect from other 1070 offerings. With 1920 CUDA Cores, 64 ROPS, 120 TMU and 8GDDR5 GB of memory. What differs is the sheer clock speed that the card runs at. With boost clock advertised to be 1855 mhz, a much higher in practice and over 260 gbps memory bandwidth, thanks to the RAM running over 8200 mhz.
Without the card with no overclocking out part boost over 2000 mhz for sustained periods of time in a closed test rig which is quite impressive. The card rear contains the usual outputs you’d expect, 3 display ports, HDMI 0.2B and the Dual-link DVI port as well.
The card cooler is a bit of a beast with the card measuring almost 13 inches long and 6 inches in height. On the top of the card it has 8-pin connectors. ZOTAC claims that this additional power capacitors and 8 phase power design with high quality and PWM controllers provides more stable clocks and it is hard to argue that all of this does mean the power delivery to the various components and the card will be smoother. And in theory will provide more good performance.
