EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti KINGPIN Hybrid hits 2.7 GHz core and 17 GHz memory clocks on LN2
Back in September 2018, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti smashed all 3DMark records with a 2.4 GHz/17 Gbps GPU/memory overclock. Obviously, that achievement came with the help of LN2 cooling. Now, a special edition of this graphics card — made by EVGA — has broken the 3DMark Port Royal benchmark world record by a solid margin, leaving behind the top-of-the-line MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z.
The MSI Lightning Z usually hits around 9,500 points on air cooling, but quite a few overclocked Titan RTX and RTX 2080 Ti cards managed to beat that score already. However, thanks to its 19-phase VRM and a 520-Watt TDP rating, the EVGA monster — supplied with power through triple 8-pin connectors — scored no less than 11,744 points in 3DMark Port Royal.
The 2.7 GHz frequency achieved by the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti KINGPIN Hybrid is apparently the highest recorded so far for this GPU. Those wondering about the processor used to reach the record score mentioned above should know that the KINGPIN Hybrid was paired with the Intel Core i9-9980XE processor on an EVGA X299 DARK mainboard.
