ZOTAC GAMING redefines our ultimate graphics card with the new flagship model – AMP Extreme AIRO. It is the go-to solution for enthusiasts who desire top-tier performance. Refined in every aspect and utilizing an Air-Optimized design, the AMP Extreme AIRO provides blazing speed and outstanding thermal efficiency that is second to none.

New and exclusive capabilities featured only on the AMP Extreme AIRO include the counter-rotating fan design that enables smooth airflow, extreme power phase design for stable power delivery, and a strong metal die-cast backplate to ensure maximum durability. The AMP Extreme AIRO also elevates the gaming setup with its all-around RGB lighting with 5 customizable zones for extraordinary visibility.

Zotac RTX 40 Trinity (OC) – The Balanced Trinity

Using cutting-edge cooling technologies derived from the flagship model, the Trinity model and its OC variant are built upon a powerful engineering foundation. Both models encompass a trio of powerful cooling fans, a large heatsink that fills the card’s footprint, noise-reducing enhancements, durability reinforcement, and addressable RGB elements. The result is a balanced embodiment of power, performance, cooling, and durability that packs the punch to offer gamers the needed blistering FPS in the latest titles.

The Coolest IceStorm

The ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 40 Series introduces IceStorm 3.0 – our most powerful cooling system ever built. Mounted on the AMP Extreme AIRO are triple large fans that feature twice the height and blade width of the previous generation to enable optimal airflow. All models come equipped with a colossal aluminum fin stack spanning the full length of the card, paired with a vapor chamber and up to 9 composite copper heatpipes to take on the most intense thermal challenges. Additionally, airflow can exhaust more freely through ventilation paths from every side to boost cooling efficiency.

Quiter Acoustic Profile

New noise-reducing features are brought to the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 40 Series to enhance gaming immersion. The AMP Extreme AIRO is equipped with a counter-rotating center fan to reduce air turbulence, minimizing noise with a smoother airflow. All models feature anti-vibration pads and automatic fan stop control, resulting in lower noise levels and extended fan longevity. In addition, users can adjust fan rotations independently or switch between two distinct BIOS modes via a physical switch or through the ZOTAC GAMING FireStorm Utility.

Designed For Durability

Built to last and perform, the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 40 Series boasts a strong foundation for peak performance. The overall rigidity of AMP Extreme AIRO is enhanced with a solid die-cast metal backplate and a rear retention bracket. The 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO graphics card spreads the load between 24+4 power phases for more power stability and improved temperatures. The cooling fans on all models feature durable dual ball fan bearings that reduce rotational friction and further prolong fan lifespan. The ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 40 Series also comes with a bundled metal GPU support stand for additional reinforcement.

Zotac SPECTRA 2.0 Lighting System

The dedicated SPECTRA 2.0 lighting system of ZOTAC GAMING enables vibrant colored lighting with unique animated effects powered by addressable RGB LEDs. On the AMP Extreme AIRO graphics card, users can customize different modes and colors for 5 lighting zones at the top, front, side, and rear, or synchronize the whole to function as one. The beauty of the RGB presence on top is enhanced by an iridescent and translucent coating that allows lighting paths underneath to shine through. All models feature a 3-pin RGB header and a bundled cable, enabling the lighting of the ZOTAC GAMING graphics cards and a compatible RGB LED strip perfectly in sync.
