GTX 1080 Ti hits 3GHz on LN2, all on reference PCB

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition overclocked past an insane 3GHz on LN2 cooling

Well... I don't even know what to say. The previous world record on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti saw the GPU hitting speeds of over 2.5GHz - but now, legendary overclocker Kingpin - who seems to not sleep, or at least overclocks GPUs in his sleep - has hit a mind blowing 3GHz on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition.


Kingpin used LN2 to keep the GPU cool enough for it to clock past 3GHz, hitting 3024MHz on the dot - the pixel fillrate throughput reaches 229.3 GPixel/s and texture fillrate throughput of 583.7 GTexel/s.


The new 3024MHz GPU clock on the overclocked GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition also marks a new record for the Pascal architecture, which had previously been pushed to 3012MHz on the GTX 1060.
