Yes, the race is over. Kingpin was the first to reach this clock with a single GPU. We waited few months, since ZOTAC announced that their card would reach such clocks, but they didn’t.
The first graphics card to reach such clock is EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified. Card is available for purchase since yesterday for $659.99. Thanks to EVGA’s cooperating with k|ngp|n (KingPin Cooling), by supplying him few samples earlier, he had some time to work with those samples and as a results he managed to overclock it beyond expectancy.
Card was overclocked to 2002 MHz with a voltage of 1.212. Altough GPU-Z shows different clocks, we have a prove of EVGA’s Precision X overclocking utility readings. With such clocks card has reached unimaginable 16472 points in 3DMark11 in Performance Preset. For this particular test he used Intel I7-3960X @ 5.5GHz and 16GB of DDR3 memory. Card was cooled by Tek-9 custom designed coolant containers, which were made for LN2 cooling. He did not post any pictures of the voltage-mods that were made to this card yet.
