Nordic Hardware posted another news article about Kinc's escapades. He has now pushed NVIDIA's new GeForce 8800 GTX using a compressor cascade to over 1GHz GPU and 1200MHz memory. A world record clock at 1002MHz.

The last time we reported about Kinc's progress he had managed to push our GeForce 8800 GTX card to over 900MHz GPU frequency. A neat increase from the 575MHz, which NVIDIA limits its partners to use, simply because there's a risk of instability at higher frequencies. Kinc has now been able to reach a real milestone, namely over 1GHz clock frequency with the graphics core.
