EVGA Scores World Record With GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N – 1933 MHz Core Clock Achieved
December seemed to be a boring month for the PC hardware industry until all graphics card manufacturers decided it was a great time to unveil their latest custom design cards. EVGA is one of NVIDIA's several vendors who will be unveiling their soon to launch GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N graphic card while AMD's partners bring in new Lightning and WindForce solutions for the Radeon R9 290X GPU.
EVGA Scores World Record With GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N
The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N has gained some attention from enthusiasts since the day it was teased but today's news shows how capable NVIDIA's flagship chip could be in the overclocking department. EVGA's in-house and world's renowned overclocker KingPin was able to shatter the previous GPU world record with a single GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified graphic card.
With some LN2 and a voltage beyond 1.5V with no additional modding, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified was able to break past the previous world record of a single GeForce GTX Titan scoring an impressive 8439 3D Marks in FireStrike benchmark. The clocks were set at an impressive 1933 MHz core and 7.8 GHz effective clock for the memory which is just shy of 2 GHz on the core. The card was pumping an impressive bandwidth of 374.4 GB/s when overclocked.
We know so far that the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified Kingpin edition as we know it features an absolutely stunning shroud design from what we have seen in the teaser shots. The whole shroud is translucent which means it has a transparent surface so you can see the heatsink below it. The shroud is covered with patches of carbon fiber where the logo’s are engraved and we can see the ACX logo at the back of the cooler which stands for Active Cooling Xtreme.
But let’s see what’s under the hood, we are looking at a extremely powerful 14+3 phase VRM design powered with an 8+8+6 Pin power configuration and placed with several V-Check Points for enthusiasts. So that’s some massive amount of power being fed to the board. Aside from that, we are also looking at an EVBOT connector that allows overclockers and enthusiasts to overclock and tune their cards as they seem fit.
The heatsink itself has three aluminum fin blocks which are inter-connected via 5 or 6 heatpipes. The front of the PCB has a red colored base plate to support it while the back has a black colored plate with a huge KingPin logo but Jacob Freeman of EVGA has mentioned that its more than a logo and said to stay tuned for more info so we are going to wait and see what secret sauce is being held inside the KingPin Edition card. Plus, the card is going to feature 3 GB VRAM as opposed to the 6 GB VRAM report from early on and Jacob mentions the possibility of a 6 GB VRAM in the foreseeable future.
