EVGA and K|NGP|N Break New World Record with First True 2GHz on GTX 780 Ti

Extreme overclockers, Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido and Illya "Tin" Tsemenko have once again teamed up with the latest EVGA hardware to set new benchmark and frequency world records. Armed with an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card, an EVGA X79 Dark motherboard, and the latest and greatest EVGA Power Supplies, Vince was able to push the GPU clockspeed up to a staggering 2025MHz, a new world record.

This frequency also allowed for a new 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme World Record, 8793 points. These accomplishments once again prove EVGA's dedication to the enthusiast community, and why EVGA hardware is the #1 choice for gamers and extreme overclockers. See the 3DMark World Record here.

Yes this card is a beast. Even with it's stock cooler on air.

Great graphics card + great overclocker = WR

Good job! :)

Insane! Can't wait to see what they can squeeze out of Maxwell after the die-shrink.

Not that impressive unless you can play games with it.

You can't drive a dragster to the grocery store to get a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread either but that's not why we have dragsters. :)

2GHz @ only 1.15V, well done. Just shows how much overclocking potential Kepler has - if only nVIDIA didn't limit the voltage so much...

Given that the GPU OC slider is maxed out in the screenshot, I wonder if there was potential for taking the card even further?

well im sure the law prohibits you from doing it.. but you can so drive a dragster to the store. lol ^^

Software shows incorrect GPU voltage. Also, these guys have full access to guys who write graphics card BIOS and the OC tool. There is no software limit for GPU clock speed.

not a really good analogy for the situation, you are comparing a performance machine with a workhorse/every day machine.

In this case a lets say an Nvidia GT730 would be a workhorse, enough to browse the web and watch videos on, this would be your milk and loaf of bread.

This OCed 780Ti is the performance machine, the dragster, in which case we want to see it preform and games are a good thing to show that performance, a GPU oced but not stable enough to run a game is like a Dragster that can do great numbers on a Dyno but breaks on the track, aka whats the point? :P

Its a hell of a lot of transistors doing 2ghz that's impressive all on it's own.
Would be nice to see some more benches on it though.

No. Not really. No one mentioned the GT 730. What we are discussing is hardly a workhorse/everyday card. This is the GTX 780 Ti Kingpin edition. It's the creme of the crop for now. This news is that it has been overclocked to hell and back no matter what. It's a spectators sport just like quarter-miling. No it's not practical. Yes it's fun!

you called this car a dragster and then said you cant take a dragster to do grocery shopping.
im pointing out that comparing running games at high fps is not the same as grocery shopping.
Thats what the analogy you put forth does not work.

Running games is the quarter mile, putting power to practice.
Dyno runs is this synthetic benchmarking, just running tests but no point in the real world.

1.15v for the GPU is great, but oh my look at that 1.8v to get 5.6GHz on that DC CPU!

wait...your analogy doesnt even make sense.
saying the gt730 is milk and bread and the 780ti is a dragster isnt even a comparison, since food and cars are two different things, but the thing being compared, the gpus, are the same type of technology.
a better way to look at this would be that the application, such as web browsing or gaming (groceries) are what you are after. the gt730 is like a small eco car. not fast, cant do too much, but gets the job done for many people (web browsing, light gaming). the 2ghz 780ti is the dragster. super fast (gaming), but not all that useful for everyday tasks, such as web browsing and gaming (why use a dragster to go shopping), and very likely to break (how long would it actually work).
that would put something like the 770 right in the middle, as a nice v6 sedan. easily capable of handling grocery shopping (web browsing/youtube) and capable of going nice and fast as well (gaming).
the 780 would be a mustang, and the 760 would be more similar to a ford focus.

Yeah, these sponsored boring OC results are boring. Miss the old days when guys OC'd CPU's and GPU's an their homes without the companies sponsoring.

Even more boring are those CPU OC results with 1 or 2 cores instead of full cores and threads.


edit: Of course 24/7 stable air/h2o clocks are those which are interesting instead of these.

Of course it doesn't make sense in the real world. No one will be gaming at their OC. This is a record OC. That's all. It's not an everyday experience for us gamers.

I used the dragster example in an attempt to extrapolate the performance of the Kingpin OC from my perspective to an experience that most of us are familiar with.

The bottom line is that Kingpin busted all of the records to hell. Thank you for giving to us your best effort.

I really wouldn't bother explaining. This is a tech forum, how many people here do you actually think have driven a quarter (or eighth) mile in a car built for that express purpose?

Can't say I've driven a top fuel or pro stock either, but I have driven stock factory eliminator at the local dragstrip and it can be pretty much assured that even that can't readily be used for grocery runs, unless you have some damn forgiving stop lights with a sizeable run-off, no other traffic, no pedestrians, no animals, no potholes, no road works, and a pretty straight road.

There must be some truly fantastic drivers here, if they are able to navigate city streets and pull up at stoplights in a one ton vehicle doing 250+ mph. Then of course they'd also have to be a pretty decent mechanic, since every two-three stops they'd have to pull down and rebuild the sequential clutch. Presumably the same people have mastered the art of repacking braking parachutes and have worked out how to refuel in situ, since warming the engine and a quarter mile pretty much empties a 25 gallon tank....and I'm pretty sure gas stations don't sell 85% nitromethane fuel.

Given the specialized nature and the amount of effort going into a short-duration effort, I'd actually say the analogy holds up pretty well.

I've probably insulted my fellow gamers and I never meant to do that.

I ran with a '74 Camaro with a 454 engine and a hi lift cam and a Holley double pumper, Edelbrock intake and Hooker headers. When I stepped on the gas pedal my Camaro spinned all over the place like crazy. They were light in the rear end. I liked it. Fun times. :)

Nice. MOPAR fanatic here - wedge and hemi, although I do have a soft spot for the first gen Camaro and Firebird, and a friend of mine has a nice second generation 70½ RS/SS 396 (a 402 I think for 1970)

The 70 RS 396 is absolutely solid gold. There's no collector that wouldn't pay top dollar for that find.

The Hemi Roadrunner ran all the hell over anything that Chevvy could build at the time and then then they released the Dodge Charger. Chevrolet/Pontiac answered with the Camaro/Firebird and Ford kept backpedaling with the Mustang series.

Hahaha, everyone talk about the old days, but I've been into the scene since pretty much since before HWBOT started which is more than 10 years ago. There was always someone who had some kind of sponsorship, even if it's one VGA card or a motherboard (at the time only Abit was supporting enthusiasts, long before DFI even thought of motherboards. Yes when Oscar Wu was at Abit).

For the record, he is not a sponsored overclocker, he works at EVGA and for EVGA along wth TiN. They help design the products, Classified range of VGA and motherboards. Much like how others work for vendors as well (Elmor, Coolice, Andre Yang etc ASUS, Pepinorang MSI, Sofos1990, HiCookie for Gigabyte etc)

This is exactly like drag racing, most at the highest level do not do anything other than run 1/4miles maybe a standing km at most. There's absolutely no use for them other than this single purpose, but it is still worthwhile.
