NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Overclocked To 2.8 GHz Achieving New Record

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Overclocked To 2.8 GHz

The ASUS ROG Strix Geforce RTX 3090 OC Edition graphics card was able to achieve 2.8 GHz in overclocking, breaking yet another world record.

After the launch of the Radeon RX 6800, we were particularly impressed by the high operating frequencies of the new AMD GPUs, capable of pushing beyond 2.6 GHz with the original cooling system. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 probably doesn’t have the same propensity for overclocking (for several reasons), however with the right dissipation system they have already proven to be valid anyway, especially in extreme overclocking sessions with liquid nitrogen cooling.

In confirmation of this peculiarity, comes the new record set by the GeForce RTX 3090 which, under the hands of the OGS overclocker, recorded a peak frequency of 2.8 GHz or 2880 MHz, closing the GPU-PI 1B benchmark in a short time for more than 2 seconds.

The test was validated on the HWBOT platform even if the user did not share particular technical details, limiting himself to the screenshot that confirms the clock rates of the GPU (an ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3090 OC Edition), running on an Intel Core i9-10900K machine. This new record also re-evaluates the Samsung 8nm production process of the Ampere GPUs, accused on several occasions of not being as efficient as it was believed, not only in terms of clock frequencies but also, and above all for production yield.

Always talking about GeForce RTX 3090 and top-of-the-range models, EVGA has finally added its most powerful and elaborate custom variant to the catalog, we are talking about the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N HYBRID GAMING announced at the end of September, priced at $2,000.

The graphics card is a full-custom one, characterized by a hybrid air/liquid heatsink and a completely revised design regarding PCB and cooling system. Thanks to these features, the EVGA model arrives on the market with a 1920 MHz GPU Clock Boost, 220 MHz more than the RTX 3090 Founders Edition.

The only flaw is the availability, in fact at the moment it is not possible to buy the GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N HYBRID GAMING graphics card even on the manufacturer’s website.
