With 58.47FPS the US-based overclocker is 0.29FPS faster than Bigblock990. Next up is the inevitable K|ngp|n also from the USA. His 3DMark Time Spy 1xGPU Global First Place lists both in the 3D as well as the Hardware spot this week. For an overall score of 14507 marks, the 3D superpower uses a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at 2607/1665 MHz paired with the 18-core Core i9 7980XE processor at 5600 MHz.
