Two overclockers have managed to reach absolute world’s clock-speed record for graphics chip using Asustek Computer’s ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card. Never before has a graphics processing unit (GPU) reached 1525MHz clock-speed.

With the help of liquid nitrogen and the recently launched Asus Radeon HD 5870 Matrix 2GB graphics board, well-known overclockers Kinc and Elmor from XtremeSystems forums have managed to push the frequency of ATI Cypress graphics processor to the absolute world’s record. Other hardware used on the same test bench included Core i7 980X processor (4492MHz), Asustek Rampage III Extreme motherboard, Corsair Dominator GTX memory modules, Antec 1200W power supply unit and so on.

The graphics board could work fine at 1.525GHz core clock-speed and 5200MHz memory clock-speed. Even though the overclockers did not manage to speed up memory speed considerably, improving clock-speed by nearly 85% is a spectacular result.

The overclocked Asus HD 5870 Matrix 2GB graphics board scores 29 342 points in 3DMark Vantage benchmark, the GPU score was 26 691.

All that for a synthetic benchmark that doesn't use any popular 3D engines. What a waste.

Well its using liquid nitrogen, so its nothing more than a 'what can we achieve' run anyway. Its not like you could game with it, unless you're happy to stop and pour more liquid N2 into it every 10 minute.
