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. If this overclock is an indication of things to come, then we are looking at a series of overclocking and benchmarking records coming up in next few weeks.

This is amazing. EVGA has also enabled software overvolting on this card.

No way that will wind up being an average OC on that card. More like if you get one of the top 1% binned chips of the already binned chips for the Classified.

What I'm curious to see is rather the Classified or the Lightning will OC better on LN2. My money is on the Lightning.

I'm having serious trouble to keep myself from ordering this card right now.

Whoa. Whilst I concur with BigMack, it's probably good publicity to cherry-pick cards to be sent out for engineering samples, this is impressive none-the-less. Hopefully all the waiting is going to pay off. Still checking EVGA/online vendors daily to snap up one of these.

Surprised Nvidia would allow that.

I hope they do... but I imagine this could be like the 680 where you need to get one of the initial batch of cards before Nvidia gets their panties all bunched up and shuts the fun down.

Yeah the 780 pretty definitively passes the Titan around the 1100 MHz mark, so at 1410 MHz it wouldn't even be a contest. A 1400 MHz 780 would probably beat most manually OC'd Titans.

I really doubt that kingpin benched a random production card

Well, Kingpin says that its a retail card picked randomly. However, I wouldnt be surprised if it is binned.

If I have to purchase an EVBot I might as well save money and buy a 780 Lightning instead

Benchmarks are one thing (this I assume being a rare one) but game stable is another.
