Last week we noted how GPU pusher extraordinaire k|ngp|n was getting intimately acquainted with the newly launched Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card. Following up on his Global First Place scoring in 3DMark Time Spy, 3DMark Fire Strike and 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, this week he has added single GPU records for 3DMark11 Performance, Catzilla 720p and Catzilla 1440p. Nice work Vince!
In 3DMark Performance the fastest run ever by a single GPU is now represented by a score of 43,798 marks. This was achieved using an Intel Core i7 6950X 'Broadwell-E' chip pushed to 5,230MHz (+74.33%) and a GTX 1080 Ti with the Pascal GP102 graphics chip pushed to a massive 2,505MHz (+69.26%) and graphics memory at 1,601MHz (+16.35%). Other rig features include a G.SKILL Trident Z kit at 1,639.8MHz (12-12-12-28) and a EVGA X99 MICRO2 motherboard.
When it comes to the Catzilla benchmark using its 720 preset, the highest score for a single GPU is 80,958 marks. His Core i7 6950X chip was configured at a slightly lower clock speed of 5,202MHz (+73.40%) with the GTX 1080 Ti card pushed even higher to hit 2,583MHz (+74.53%) on the GPU with graphics memory at a slightly more conservative 1,576MHz (+14.53%). Interestingly the DDR4 Trident Z kit was configured at 1,632MHz with 13-13-13-28 timings. The identical hardware setup and settings were also used to complete a Catzilla 1440p run with a Global First Place ranked score of 29,476 marks.
It’s also worth noting that EVGA also posted a shot on their Facebook page showing how Vince had also broken the 3,000MHZ barrier using a GTX 1080 Ti card. It’s not the first time we’ve seen a GPU bust past 3GHz, but it’s mightily impressive all the same. You can find all the scores in the links above and also here on the k|ngp|n user page.
