Kingpin Overclocks GeForce RTX 2080 Ti To A Whopping 2.4 GHz
Kingpin is certainly one of the most legendary overclockers on the planet and has broken world records on multiple occasions, and the introduction of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti was more than enough reason for the overclocker to put the new cards to the test.
He managed to bring the RTX 2080 Ti to a whopping 2415 MHz – a vast improvement over the standard card’s base clock speed of 1350 MHz. Of course, liquid nitrogen cooling was used to keep the temperatures to a minimum, and the card was also outfitted with volt mods to increase the voltage and power consumption. The 2.4 GHz achieved is far better than even the boost speed seen on reference cards of 1545 MHz.
As expected, world records were shattered. The overclocked flagship graphics card was able to achieve a stunning 18925 points in the 3DMark Timespy benchmark, taking the crown for best performance with a single GPU. For comparison: a regular RTX 2080 Ti is able to reach a very respectable score of a little under 13,000 points. The world record of 16827 points with an overclocked Titan V is no more.
Kingpin used a high-end system with a Core i9 7980 XE CPU, 32 GB of RAM and an EVGA X299 Dark mainboard.
