GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition OC'd Past 2GHz

The EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card was announced quite a while ago, and it was built to set overclocking records. It has taken a couple of months, but now a new world record has been set. This graphics card comes with a very large dual-fan cooler, which has a semi-transparent shroud. However, for serious overclocking, EVGA still recommends that you simply remove the cooler and replace it with either liquid cooling or a liquid nitrogen solution. The GPUs are hand-picked for better stability along with lower power consumption and heat output.

K|NGP|N himself, who in the real world is known as Vince Lucido, has teamed up with Illya Tsemenko and EVGA to set this new record. The overclockers have managed to pull the clock speed of the GPU aboard up to a jaw-dropping 2025 MHz. At this speed, the team managed to score 8,793 points in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, which is also a new world record. The card was already overclocked to 1933 MHz earlier, also by K|NGP|N himself.

EVGA had supplied the accompanying hardware, which consists of an EVGA X79 Dark motherboard along with an EVGA PSU, the model of which was not provided.

    For when you absolutely need that extra 5fps. To play at 200fps. On a 120hz monitor.

    Regardless of the cooling solution used, it's pretty amazing that a Kepler chip can be pushed over 2 GHz at the capped 1.15 volts. Imagine what kind of clock speeds we could have seen if Nvidia allowed for greater unlocked voltage control on these cards. I would love to see better voltage control with Maxwell but I don't think it's likely to happen.

    it's safe to say he volt modded this card to get past the 1.15v. lol

    Sheesh, at that clock speed it will have the same performance as 2 gtx 780 tis in sli.

    I wonder how well it can play at 4k?

    What cooling solution did K|NGP|N use? Liquid, air, nitrogen?

    Over clocking - powered by the human thinking called "Just because I can"
