NVIDIA released their GeForce GTX 780 last month and since then various manufacturer’s have released non-reference variants of the card. Galaxy unveiled their GeForce GTX 780 HOF edition graphics card with a sexy white colored PCB at Computex 2013, it looked great and today HKEPC’s Mr.Wong has manged to shatter records with the new card by overclocking it past the limit.
Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 HOF Breaks Records At 1900 MHz Core and 7.4 GHz Memory Clock
HKEPC managed to overclock the Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 HOF which makes use of a non-reference PCB up to a record core clock of 1894 MHz which is absolutely phenomenal and the 3 GB GDDR5 memory was overclocked to 7.4 GHz blowing past the 7 Gbps native speeds of the GeForce GTX 770 which currently features the fastest clock for memory at native frequencies. The voltage was pumped up to 1.55V with LN2 cooling which kept the temps at arctic levels of -120 C.
Talking about the card itself, The GeForce GTX 780 HOF “Hall of Fame” edition falls in Galaxy’s flagship tier branding making use of NVIDIA’s latest GK110-300 A2 core that features 2304 cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The card features a 3 GB GDDR5 memory that operates along a 384-bit interface. Clock speeds for both core and memory are not known at the moment but its confirmed that the card would make use of a factory overclock. The GeForce GTX 780 HOF is supplied power through dual 8-Pin connectors while display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI, Display port. We can also note a OC BIOS switch across the display ports which would probably make the card run at higher clocks when pressed.
The card was benchmarked at 1900 MHz and 7.4 GHz in cloud gate benchmark in which it toppled 40,933 Marks. For comparison, a GTX Titan scores around 30,000 marks while the Radeon HD 7990 runs past 35-38K so that’s a world record for single chip GPU score. Mr.Wong also tested the card in other benchmarks but unfortunately had to lower down the clocks due to instability, following are the results with their respective validations:
- GPU 1803MHz GDDR 1851MHz 1.55V -120° 3DMAKR 11- P19725 Marks
- GPU 1698MHz GDDR 1851MHz 1.55V -120° 3DMARK Fire Strlke – 13722 Marks
- GPU 1855MHz GDDR 1851MHz 1.55V -120° 3DMARK Cloud Gate – 41180 Marks
