k|ngp|n is at it again. A week or so ago we noted how the world most feared GPU pusher had leveraged the performance of a GTX 1080 Ti card to break several GFP scores. Having tired of single GPU benching with the latest Pascal card he has now setup a rig using four of them. The first World Record to tumble is 3DMark Time Spy, and wow did it tumble. The new 3DMark Time Spy World Record stands at 31,550 marks, a score that busts past the 30K barrier with room to spare!
The new 3Dmark Time Spy record score was made using a deca-core Intel Core i7 6950X processor pushed to 5,200MHz, a very satisfactory +73.33% beyond stock settings. This was paired by the what is surely the most powerful consumer grade GPU array in history – x4 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founder Edition cards. Each of the Pascal-based GP102 graphics processing units were tuned under LN2 to hit 2,354MHz which is an incredible +59.05% beyond stock settings. In terms of graphics memory we find the 11GB of GDDR5X pushed to a 1,576MHz, an overclock of +14.53%. Other hardware used in the run includes a 32GB G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 kit clocked at 1,631MHz (13-13-13-28) and an EVGA X99 FTW K motherboard.
For the sake of interest, the next highest ever 3DMark Time Spy World Record was submitted by bob(nz) earlier last month. He achieved a score of 28,778 armed with 4x GeForce Titan X Pascal cards. The new score from Vince beats that score by a pretty amazing 2,772 marks. The top ten scores in the Time Spy rankings all involve either 3x or 4x Titan X Pascal cards, so it will be very interesting to see how the arrival of the GTX 1080 Ti will shake things up in the long run. For now, k|ngp|n certainly has a healthy lead.
