EVGA, K|NGP|N and TiN Break New Records with EVGA GeForce GTX 980

- September 19, 2014 — EVGA, K|NGP|N and TiN have once again broken new records with the new EVGA GeForce GTX 980. Armed with liquid nitrogen, the latest EVGA hardware including an EVGA X99 FTW motherboard, 1600W power supplies and an EVGA GeForce GTX 980 running at over 2050MHz, K|NGP|N was able to set new records on 3DMark Fire Strike and Fire Strike Extreme, breaking 19,000 and 9,000 barrier in each benchmark.

“The Maxwell GPU in the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 is an overclocking monster,” said Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido. “There is a ton of headroom on the GPU and Memory clocks, and performance scaling is some of the highest I have ever seen. Internally we have hit the highest clocks ever achieved on a GPU.”

“The power efficiency of the new GPUs allow for higher overclocking with lower power consumption, even on air cooling,” said Illya “TiN” Tsemenko. “The fact that it is not so demanding on power consumption, allows you to achieve clockspeeds that were not possible before on a reference power design.”
