Here’s something that may have escaped your attention. A week or so ago Germany’s fifth fastest overclocker Benchbros went on a rampage of sorts, making nine 3D benchmark submissions in the space of a single day. While some of the those submissions have since been beaten, two of them remain Global 1st Places; 3DMark Time Spy and Catzilla 1440p. In these two benchmarks Benchbros reigns supreme when it comes to benching with a single GPU.
The rig used to crack both of these 1st Place rankings was basically configured identically in both cases. It’s based around an Intel Core i7 6950X 'Broadwell-E' chip that has been pushed to 5,200MHz on LN2, a whopping +73.33% beyond stock. The rig not surprisingly also features a Titan X Pascal card with its GPU clocked at 2,350MHz (+65%) and graphics memory set at 1,450 (+16%).
The new fastest record for a single GPU rig running Catzilla 1440p is 28,085 marks, beating the next fastest by Swiss overclocker raccoon by 171 marks. The fastest run in 3DMark Time Spy with a single GPU now stands at 13,069 marks, a score that beats jpmboy from the US with 11,851 marks.
