EVGA’s top of the line GPU, the GeForce GTX 780 Classified edition gets overclocked to 1410 MHz on air. Company’s in-house overclocker K|ngP|n just posted some benchmarks and pictures of the monster his forums revealing some exciting details. To begin with, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified comes with the latest ACX cooler but with a few changes. It has a bigger shroud to cover the extra-wide PCB of the card but the fan size stays the same.
The overclocker also reveals that EVGA has prepared a standalone voltage tuner for the GTX 780 Classified which will enable it to reach some crazy frequencies on air. As a demonstration, K|ngp|n overclocked the card to 1410 MHz on air. That’s an amazing 547 MHz over NVIDIA’s reference clocks for GTX 780 (863 MHz). He also ran 3DMark FireStrike and FireStrike Extreme on 1410 MHz resulting in 11914 and 5998 marks respectively.
