Two renowned overclocking expects – Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido and Illya “Tin” Tsemenko – have managed to overclock Nvidia Corp.’s code-named GK110 graphics processing unit to 2025MHz, which is the highest frequency ever reached by a graphics chip.

The overclockers used EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card, an EVGA X79 Dark motherboard, an EVGA power supply unit as well as liquid nitrogen cooling. The record-setting overclocking was supported by EVGA, so K|NGP|N and Tin could probably cherry pick the components with the highest overclocking potential.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card was designed for record-setting overclocking from the ground up. The board was co-engineered by Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido and Illya “TiN” Tsemenko and EVGA developers. The graphics adapter features enhanced PLL circuitry, improved GPU power plane, 10CM fans, a special backplate, preinstalled dedicated PWM baseplate, voltage regulation enhancements and more. In a bid to remove all potential limitations, the graphics card is equipped with two 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe power connectors that can supply (together with the PCIe x16 slot) up to 450W of power to the board. The graphics card is currently available for $849 in the U.S.

“In order to break world records these days you need some serious hardware,” said Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido. “This card was engineered to serve one purpose… be the world’s best overclocking graphics card. Expect GPU clockspeeds at over 1.85GHz with extreme cooling.”

The default clock-rate of the GK110 graphics processing unit with 2880 stream processors on the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card is 1072MHz. Thanks to extraordinary design of the printed circuit board and liquid cooling, the overclockers managed to increase it to 2025MHz and even set a new 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme world record, 8793 points, reports TechPowerUp.

It is especially noteworthy that Nvidia’s GK110 graphics processor is the most complex and one of the largest GPUs ever made. It features 7.1 billion of transistors and is sports 551mm2 die size. The graphics chip was designed primarily with high-performance computing in mind and was never supposed to run at 2.0GHz.
