    Renowned overclockers elmor and Kinc did the unthinkable, breaching the 1500 MHz barrier for the core (geometry domain) clock speed of GeForce GTX 580. Using ASUS EN580GTX DirectCu graphics card, the duo managed to achieve 1504 MHz core, 3008 MHz CUDA cores, and 1253 MHz (5012 MHz GDDR5 effective) memory, churning out 240.6 GB/s memory bandwidth. With this in single-card configuration, the testbed consisting of Intel Core i7-990X clocked at 6.14 GHz and 6 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1750 MHz, and ASUS Rampage III Extreme motherboard, the duo achieved a 3DMark Vantage score of P45819 (performance preset), setting a new record.

    The bench was powered by a 1200W Antec HCP PSU, the graphics card ran with a whopping 1.62V vGPU, and 1.86V vMem, it is estimated that the graphics card drew 600W (12V, 50A) of power in itself. The CPU and graphics card were cooled using liquid nitrogen evaporators, the GPU VRM was directly air-cooled, using a high-flow fan. A number of hard volt-mods were employed to achieve those voltages.

    can anyone run their PC like this in real life? no. so, why bother? records should be records only if done in real life conditions. >_>

    i'm sure he tried numerous gtx 580 cards to find this one. why is gpu binning dead? if you pay more for a factory overclocked card you should get more. at least when you're talking about high end cards

    Can anyone run anything on world record level in everyday life?

    no, and that is my point! it's just like you aren't supposed to run the 100m on steroids, not even to make the world record. :D

    Looks like they're using A-DATA XPG Plus memory (=Elpida Hyper). Sad that benchers have to use EOL kits, but all the PSC-based stuff out now just won't cut it.

    I only care about what can be done in real life as well.

    Well, considering that Kinc and Elmor did. Yes.

    It's like questioning:
    ... It's because they can and they're willing to go break the limit. Kinc and Elmor just decided to go beyond breaking the limit, that's all.

    LOL, people are being pessimistic for no reason.

    I actually have more respect for people running benchmarks like this than just setting their voltages by software and throwing money at their systems. At least this guys are are putting some skill level to work by hard modding the cards. The cooling solutions... well, whatever works to keep it from catching fire and pushed the furthest. It's like one of the nitro drag races. You're pretty much expected to rebuild the engine after charging down the track at more than 300 MPH with 5,000 HP.

    Impressive.

    All the people complaining about how pointless this is i have to ask, do you complain when people set land speed records? :p

    They set the mark that everydayers (possible new word) strive to reach using more practical means. Besides most of our systems are way more powerful than what we use them for. its just in our nature to go faster, fly higher and just push everything to its limits.

    hmm surprised the MOSFET section of the 580 has no cooling.

    gotta love the kingpin pots though can't wait till i got parts to clock up again good job elmor. also very clean vmod on the 580 you can barely see the pot dangling off of it.

    100% agreed. :toast:

    How many thousand dollar chips are wasted for this kind of hobby?

    C'mon, spend your knowledge and money in something like folding@home or WCG.

    congrats to these guys for getting a GTX580 to run that damn fast, thats incredible.

    must be hugely satisfying to set a world record too, overclocking is rewarding enough without an actual reward.
