Titan Takes Down 3DMark11 Record (with a bit of help from K|ngp|n)

It was obvious, inevitable and only a matter of time: the GeForce GTX Titan would take down the 3DMark11 Performance record. K|ngp|n, probably the only person on this planet who actually has four of these beastly cards, is not surprisingly the man who did it; tons of experience with Nvidia based graphics cards, a lab full of liquid nitrogen and the dedication and persistence of a teenage boy trying to get, ehr, a hug from a beautiful lady.

Combining the monster GPU configuratino with a Core i7 3930K at 5.7GHz, the counter stopped at 35210 points. Note that the cards are only clocked at 1.4GHz core frequency - something that makes us believe this man from Detroit has a couple of backups up his sleeve. In any case, this result is now the score to beat. Who takes up that challenge?

Only 300pts higher than the previous record, though. Backups! :D

One can only slightly imagine how hard it must have been to sit on the "hot seat" or "do not push the red button" for Vince while waiting or testing the last weeks :D
The series he released shows how much of a bump these cards are, unfortunatly they come at their price :(
