EVGA and K|NGP|N Take GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU to New Heights – 2200MHz

EVGA and Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido have once again teamed up to achieve three new 3DMark World Records, with Vince running his EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti K|NGP|N Edition graphics card at over 2200MHz GPU clock on liquid nitrogen cooling. The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti K|NGP|N Edition graphics card has been meticulously designed from the ground up for overclocking, and feats such these new world records are further proof that EVGA products are #1 for overclocking. Vince recently had this to say about the graphics card design:

"K|NGP|N GTX 980 Ti once again represents EVGA's dedication to the enthusiast inspired hardware, bullet proof engineering and bleeding edge performance."
EVGA Hardware Used:
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti K|NGP|N Edition Graphics
  • EVGA X99 Micro2 Motherboard
  • EVGA SuperNOVA Power Supply
3DMark World Records Obtained:
  • 3DMark Fire Strike (Single Card)
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (Single Card)
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra (Single Card)

But can it run Crysis?

I'm so sorry.

It would be more interesting t take the lowest end card and overclock it to extreme, trying to match the highest end card with it in performance. Like GTX 970 trying to get as close as possible to GTX 980Ti. That would be more entertaining.

It doesn't matter how fast the core is ticking if it's bottlenecked by 224-bit vram vs 384.

I love how they have a air cooled card in the pictures...

Ok kingpin get 4 off these at 2200Mhz and destroy all the records! hope his lab is next to a power plant

That's the whole point. How much you can squeeze out of an old clunker. It was so fun overvolting and overclocking a GeForce 8400GS Passive by slaming obnoxiously loud fan to it and just going mad. If you already have a fast card it's just not the same.

When you set records you don't do it with something that wont 'win'. It's fun as a hobbyist to squeeze the extra performance out of a chip but these 'world' records are serious business and as such use top grade kit. It's irrelevant to most of us but FWIW, 2.2Ghz on a GPU core is nuts.

I actually get tired of these world records as liquid nitrogen isnt really a 24/7 viable cooling method for anyone practical if at all. Why cant we have wold records with practical cooling? Id be more impressed then.

Whoever said extreme overclocking was practical? The sheer expense and effort should have ruled that theory out from the outset - even before the first flask of LN2 was uncapped.

There are plenty of world records for practical cooling - just pick the cooling parameters from the options for whatever relevant benchmark. Frequency tends to deal in absolutes, and is fairly subjective since it is tied to the architecture and how well it clocks in general. Performance benchmarks are generally more applicable which is why they tend to be the validation criteria.

You should email Kingpin, and let him know you think his hobby sucks.

Hey, at least one GPU this year turned out to be “an overclockers dream”.

You can still pick up old stuff and set world clock records for that piece of kit though. One of the highest CPU clocks is still an old Celery. I had the highest clock on an i5 750 for a little while until somebody put one under LN2. Not all records require a 3DMark score associated with them.

The other one is an overclockers dream all right, if it's handled by the one who knows his stuff. Most people nowaday has this false notion that them learning how to press the auto tune button already classifies them under that overclocker populace.

I stand corrected I guess.

You can thank this 'useless hobby' for most, if not all of the innovations that enthusiasts can enjoy on all levels today.

On 4K? I doubt it...

He should try to get his name onto products, you know like that fragility guy.
can they sell it for 10 more o_O

still nice to see some serious BENCH marking :cool:

well, 2200mhz is huge overclock. very considerable difference between regular cooling gpu and nitrogrn
