Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido has entered the record books once again, using four of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 GPUs, all set at 2GHz. He broke the 3DMark FireStrike world records with the 4-way SLI setup, using four of EVGA’s GeForce GTX 980 Classified ACX 2.0 4GB cards.
Each of the four EVGA cards were overclocked to 2GHz on the Core, while the memory was hovering at an insane 8.4GHz – all of this, was cooled using LN2 (liquid nitrogen), as well as the test bed used which consisted of an Intel Core i7-5960X processor at 5.6GHz, an EVGA X99 motherboard, and 16GB of DDR4 clocked at 3.3GHz.
K|NGP|N managed to not only take down the following benchmarks:
- 3DMark Fire Strike (4-way) = 40,338
- 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (4-way) = 28,059
- 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra (4-way) = 16,243
But he also smashed the single-GPU benchmarks, with these results:
- 3DMark Fire Strike (single card) = 19,811
- 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (single card) = 9,617
- 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra (single card) = 5,007
K|NGP|N said “The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified is an overclockers dream. The improved VRM and memory design really let Nvidia’s GTX 980 GPU stretch its wings. This card has achieved clock-speeds of 2200MHz core and 8500MHz memory single card and nearly 2100MHz core in 4-way SLI, it’s really amazing.”
