Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido and Illya “Tin” Tsemenko, two of the world’s most renowned extreme overclockers, have managed to overclock Nvidia’s GK110 graphics processing unit to over 2GHz, a new world’s record. 2025MHz is the highest clock-rate ever reached by a graphics processor.
In a bid to break the world’s record 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 EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card was co-designed by EVGA as well as Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido and Illya “Tin” Tsemenko. The graphics card has enhanced PLL circuitry, improved GPU power plane, 10CM fans, a special backplate, preinstalled dedicated PWM baseplate, voltage regulation enhancements and more. The board clocks the GPU at 1072MHz and is among the fastest GeForce GTX 780 Ti solutions on the market.
“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 2025MHz frequency allowed to set a new 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme world record, 8793 points, reports TechPowerUp.

KitGuru Says: The result of the overclocking is pretty surprising. Nvidia’s GK110 graphics processor is the world’s most complex GPU and it was never designed to run at 2GHz. Still, thanks to special design of the printed circuit board and liquid nitrogen it became possible to overclock it to whopping 2025MHz frequency.
