NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition Breaks World Record
The card has been put through the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark test and it managed to bring in a new world record for NVIDIA. EVGA’s own Kingpin is the one who managed to overclock the chip to this speed. The previous record was also achieved by an NVIDIA card, the Titan X.
This isn’t the first time that NVIDIA manages to break a world record. The Pascal graphics processing unit lineup is the one that set several world records in stone. First off, the GTX 1060 GPU scored over 3GHz core clock while GeForce GTX 1080 scored 2.65GHz. Last but not least is Titan X which has been clocked at 2.3GHz.
The overclocker known as Kingpin took the Founders Edition of GTX 1080 Ti and managed to clock it at 2.481GHz on LN2 cooling. This is really impressive, especially since the chip actually managed to go past its 2.5GHz which is way past its base clock speed. On the other hand, the memory was boosted at 12.5GHz. This is also impressive since the memory base speed is 11GHz. Worth mentioning is that this card was paired with GDDr5X memory speed for 11GB chips.
Regarding memory clock, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition boasts with over half a terabyte of bandwidth. This is the biggest amount of memory that’s featured on reference card on GDDR5/X and HBM2 designs. The chip managed to keep a stable 484 GB/s and it could even go up to 500 GB/s with a faster boost. It looks like NVIDIA has made the right decision to launch this new card when it comes to sales percentages. The Founders Edition of GTX 1080 Ti is highly successful and retailers are always running out of stock.
