ZOTAC International today announced the release of their latest GeForce GTX 580 graphics card in the form of the GTX 580 AMP! Edition. Based on the recently released NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 reference GPU, the new ZOTAC GTX 580 AMP! Edition is a factory overclocked card aimed specifically at the enthusiast market.

As one of the fastest graphics cards in the market, the GeForce GTX 580 has developed quite a fan following within days of its release. Enthusiasts and gamers the world over have been impressed by the terrific performance of the card.

As with its other graphics cards, ZOTAC has clubbed the GeForce GTX 580 AMP! Edition with a full copy of the Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands game to allow gamers to immediately check out the power of the GPU.
