NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Overclocked To 2.5GHz By Kingpin

Vincent ‘K|NGP|N’ Lucido is one of the most well known overclockers and he is constantly staying at the top by pushing his own branded cards by EVGA to the bleeding edge of what is possible at that time. Vince has been working on overclocking the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition since it was released and it appears that he has managed to break the 2.5GHz core clock barrier with LN2 cooling.

That clock speed was high enough to give him a brand new 3DMark Time Spy record of 13,291 points. Back in 2015, K|NGP|N hit 2.2GHz on the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and broke three 3DMark world records, so it just goes to show that overall GPU clock speed is increasing.

Kingpin’s setup consisted of the following hardware:

  • EVGA X99 MICRO2 Motherboard
  • Intel Core i7-6950X overclocked to 5.1 GHz
  • DRAGON F1 DARK LN2 Cooled
  • EVGA 1080TiFE
  • TEK-9 FAT LN2 Cooled
  • 32GB G.SKILL TRIDENT Z DDR4 Memory @ 3.2 GHz
  • EVGA SUPERNOVA NEX 1600 Watt Power Supply

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition was overclocked up to 2.483GHz on the base clock an increase of nearly 68% over stock and the boost clock was beyond 2.5GHz. Insane numbers and it is no wonder that he ended up with the #1 score for 3DMark Time Spy at 13,291 points.

We have a feeling that score will be broke soon by Vince again when the EVGA GeForce 1080 Ti KPE is released.
