- September 23, 2011 — Extreme Overclockers Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido and Illya "TiN" Tsemenko are not satisfied with the overclocking capabilities of current generation graphics cards. They want overclocking capabilities and performance that exists beyond what is traditionally considered enthusiast level. To overcome this, they began to work with EVGA on designing a new card from the ground up that is 100% focused on being the single fastest and greatest overclocking card on the block. This was accomplished with the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified.

"I wanted a graphics card that overclocked to hell and back without limits," said Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido. "With the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified, we were able to reach GPU clockspeeds at over 1.6GHz."

"With the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified, we focused on the key elements that the GPU and Memory need when overclocking. Power, stability, noise ripple reduction and extreme OC mode without limits. The design was created with overclocking in mind." Said Illya "TiN" Tsemenko.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified is engineered and designed to perform for everyone, from gamers to the top overclocking enthusiasts in the world. The dual slot top cooled design means that you do not need to worry about space or motherboard layout limitations, and this card supports everything from single card up to 4-way SLI out of the box....

So these are on the egg, am I interpreting that report correctly? You can potentially overclock the core to twice its stock clock?
