Using the Intel Core i9-7980XE and 4 EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN GPUs, EVGA’s overclocking champion KINGPIN was able to break 4 3DMark records. Using liquid nitrogen cooling the Intel Core i9-7980XE was overclocked to 5.7 GHz while the 4 EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN GPUs were overclocked to 2.3 GHz each. These are pretty impressive numbers.
With this configuration, the team was able to get a 3DMark Time Spy score of 37596 points. The system also scored 58024 points in 3DMark FireStrike, 49352 points in 3DMark FireStrike Extreme and 31946 points in 3DMark FireStrike Ultra. These are some impressive numbers and the system easily blows the previous record out of the water.
The configuration, as well as the benchmarks, have been included below. According to the EVGA OC champion kINGPIN:
“Using the new Intel Core i9 7980XE CPU at over 5.7GHz on an EVGA X299 Dark and 4x EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N’s at over 2.3GHz, allowed me to annihilate the existing 3DMark Time Spy World Record at 37,596 points! The new Intel Core i9 7980XE CPU, EVGA X299 Dark and EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N are incredible!”
While these numbers are very impressive and it is prestigious having your name in the world records, it is important to note that using LN2 is not something feasible for everyday use and this is not something that the everyday consumer will be able to achieve when using this hardware day in and day out.
I should also point out that the average consumer will not need more than 2 GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards and neither does Nvidia encourage users to use more than 2 at a time.
What do you think about the Intel Core i9-7980XE and EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN GPUs that have made such an impact and broken so many records? Would you be interested in buying the Intel Core i9-7980XE or the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN?
