Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido, one of the world’s most renowned overclockers who collaborates with EVGA these days, has set a number of world’s records when it comes to GPU frequency. He was the first to overclock a graphics processor to 2GHz and was among the first to hit 2.20GHz with Nvidia’s latest GeForce GTX 980 GPU. This week K|NGP|N did not set any clock-speed records, he broke 3DMark FireStrike recordsinstead using four GeForce GTX 980 graphics cards with 2 GHz GPUs.

Using four EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified ACX 2.0 4GB graphics cards overclocked to 2.0GHz/8400MHz (GPU/memory) and cooled-down using liquid nitrogen (LN2) as well as a test-bed equipped with an Intel Core i7-5960X processor clocked at 5.6GHz, an EVGA X99 mainboard and 16GB of 3.30GHz DDR4 memory, Vince “K|NGP|N” Lucido managed to set three absolute world records in 3DMark FireStrike benchmark:

  • 3DMark Fire Strike (4-way) = 40,338
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (4-way) = 28,059
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra (4-way) = 16,243
