The world’s fastest single GPU is Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X, based on the Pascal architecture. This $1200 beast of a GPU is insanely fast. It is 60% faster than the Maxwell-based GTX Titan X, according to Nvidia. But this guy, to smash the world record of 3DMark FireStrike Extreme, used four of these monstrosities and a $1650 Intel Extreme Edition Core i7-6950X. Absolutely crazy, eh?
3DMark FireStrike Extreme World Record Broken by Overclocker “Kingpin”, Using 4x GTX Titan X Pascal GPUs
If you’re a follower of the PC Gaming community, you may know about Vince Lucido a.k.a “K|ngp|n”. He’s an overclocking legend. He broke 3DMark FireStrike Extreme’s record score, using his insanely fast and expensive configuration.
K|ngp|n managed to score 40,115 points, making him the first person ever to cross the 40,000 points mark in 3DMark FireStrike Extreme. Anyways, I must say that scoring this much points isn’t easy. K|ngp|n’s configuration is one of the fastest on the whole planet, if not the fastest. Here’s the ridiculous setup he used:
- Processor: Intel Extreme Edition Core i7-6950X @ 5227MHz, Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) cooled.
- GPUs: 4x Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X (Pascal) in SLI – All at 2.2GHz, Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) cooled.
- Motherboard: EVGA X99 FTW K.
- RAM: 32GB G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 RAM.
- Power Supply Unit: EVGA SuperNova NEX 1600W.
