Renowned overclocker K|NGP|N (or Kingpin, from here on out) has endorsed EVGA's latest GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, which has been "meticulously designed for the extreme overclocker." More than just lip service, this card packs a 14+3 power phase design, a new digitally controlled VRM capable of delivering up to a whopping 600A of current, and three power inputs (two 8-pin and a single 6-pin).
What crazy times we live in. Overclocking was once considered a dark art practiced by adventurous souls who ventured off largely on their own in pursuit of higher clockspeeds. And today? PC part manufacturers are increasingly happy to supply the necessary components to renowned overclockers in pursuit of new records, and then share in the glory. To wit, EVGA is ecstatic to announce that its parts were used to set a new 3DMark 11 Extreme world record.
