Zotac FireStorm and Spectra
Shortly after the release of Zotac’s GTX 10 AMP and AMP Extreme graphics cards, the company also released a new version of their FireStorm utility. The FireStorm v 2.0.0.006E supports Spectra, unlike the previous versions of FireStorm. I had a little trouble finding the latest version since the support page from Zotac’s site doesn’t give you the latest version. Well, at least at the time I was looking for the latest version. Hopefully they have updated and fix this issue on their site. For now, you can download the latest version of FireStorm here.
Aside from Spectra, you can also adjust the fan speed and clock speeds of the graphics card using FireStorm. You can also monitor the actual temperature, fan speed, clock speeds and other stats of the graphics card. However, I wish Zotac would invest and improved their utility more, to keep up with the competition. Unfortunately, the latest version of FireStorm doesn’t support the voltage/frequency curve editor which is needed if you plan to overclock the GTX 10 series graphics cards and take advantage of the GPU Boost 3.0. Currently, only the latest version of MSI’s AfterBurner and EVGA’s PrecisionX has this kind of feature.
Moving on, below are some photos of the Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme with the Spectra lighting turned on. You can set different colors depending on your preference. The four lines on the cooler shroud act as one color group, and the Zotac logo on the middle and the Push The Limit logo at the back is another color group.
