    EVGA and Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido have once again dominated the 3DMark Fire Strike World Records with a brand new record for every 3DMark Fire Strike category; the newest and by far most demanding benchmark from Futuremark:
    • #1 3DMark Fire Strike (SLI) = 22,054
    • #1 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (SLI) = 11,559
    • #1 3DMark Fire Strike (Single Card) = 14,600
    • #1 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (Single Card) = 7,308
    These records were obtained using the upcoming EVGA X79 Dark motherboard and two EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN cards in SLI. EVGA Precision X 4.0 was also used to overclock the graphics cards. See the full details at the Futuremark 3DMark Hall of Fame.

    Just last week you guys posted the record of the ASUS on the Firestrike with 21k, how can this be a record?

    The sad thing is that if you try to push more than 1.35v on the reference card you'll likely end up with a dead card.

    Nothing says the Asus did it in SLI I am comparing the 21k result with the 14k result in fire strike with single GPU.. I will search into that.

    EDIT: Sorry it WAS in SLI that the 21k was achieved.. techpowerup mentioned that..

    236 points between the two (Asus vs EVGA), big whoop, but Asus got to enjoy their e-peen victory for a few days. Give it another few days, someone else will swing theirs in victory. :nutkick:

    Aren't all titans nvidia just relabeled for each seller? So it just a matter of finding the right card.
    NeoXF says thanks.

    This proves nothing but two guys having better luck with reaching a higher benchmark score on eVGA cards in Firestrike than they did on the ASUS ones which happened to be a World Record.

    Just stating a record was broken with the eVGA titans which the ASUS ones previously set.

    While luck does play a role in getting the clocks, there is also a tremendous amount of skill/knowledge involved. Even though I am an extreme overclocker that participates at Hwbot as well, if that same card was in my hands, I couldn't break the record.
    TheGoat Eater says thanks.

    Personally, I think you could. Might take a bit of practice, but without jumping in feet first, you'd never know.


    However, these cards are likely Zombified in a huge way, I think I saw Vince with dual zombie PCBs on each card, I assume one for GPU power, and one for memory power. Crazy stuff that no normal user is ever gonna get close to...hacking up a $1000 VGA isn't for the timid.

    Custom VRMs are retro-fitted for this kind of thing.

    I'm confused as to why it was possible to take the SLI record with only two cards.
