NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Breaks 3GHz Barrier Overclocked on LN2
Ron Perillo / 2 years ago
Just one week ago, NVIDIA’s latest flagship video card the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti broke the record previously held by the GTX TITAN X, reaching 2.5GHz on LN2 but now the GTX 1080 Ti has been pushed even further by the same overclocking wizard and EVGA’s resident overclocker Vince “Kingpin” Lucido. Using a Founder’s Edition GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, Kingpin was able to reach 3024 MHz, pushing the pixel fillrate throughput to 229.3 GPixel/s and Texture fillrate throughput to 583.7 GTexel/s. This not only outpaced Kingpin’s own GTX 1080 Ti records from last week, it also displaces the highest frequency record set by South African overclocker Vivi who pushed a GALAX Hall of Fame GeForce GTX 1060 video card’s core clock up to to 3,012 MHz.
That is quite impressive considering it is a reference Founder’s Edition video card, having a 7+2 phase VRM design. Custom PCB versions of the GTX 1080 Ti is due to hit soon with even more robust VRM and power delivery systems so it will be interesting where the final core clock record will land eventually. EVGA’s own GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING is reportedly equipped with a 10+2 phase power delivery design compared to the reference 7+2 on the Founder’s Edition Kingpin used to set the record. This is also putting pressure on AMD’s upcoming Vega flagship video card as the regular GTX 1080 Ti is proving to be an overclocking monster on air as well.
