Asus' ROG Set Four 3DMark Records with Modified GTX Titans

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 13 comments

Republic of Gamers’ overclocking experts Andre Yang and Shamino have set new world records in 3DMark 11 and 3DMark Fire Strike using modified GTX Titans in four and two-way SLI configurations.

Using overclocked, volt-modded and liquid nitrogen cooled GeForce GTX Titans paired with a Rampage IV motherboard and Intel i7-3870X processor, Asus' in-house overclocking experts Andre Yang and Shamino broke multiple records in 3DMark 11 and 3DMark Fire Strike.

Andre Yang used a staggering four GTX Titans to set scores of 36,658 marks in the Entry preset, 37,263 marks in the Performance preset, and 22,076 marks in the Extreme preset on 3DMark 11, whilst Shamino used 'just' two GTX Titans to set a score of 21,818 in 3DMark Fire Strike, FutureMark’s most recent and demanding  benchmark.

Though setting these world records is certainly impressive, they have very limited real-world value since we first can’t think of any game that could justify a $4,000 base investment in graphics cards alone. Additionally, as the ROG members’ technical specifications make clear, there are no and probably never will be any GTX Titan on sale from that can deliver comparable performance without extensive and expensive modifications.

In sum, this is an excellent accomplishment, but ultimately something not applicable to the average enthusiast.

    "Wat" is unclear? Average enthusiast = averagely deep/shallow pockets.

    It states the source as Tom's Hardware US, so it should be.

    would 4-way SLI titans and a dedicated physX titan yield better results?

    "Additionally, as the ROG members’ technical specifications make clear, there are no and probably never will be any GTX Titan on sale from that can deliver comparable performance without extensive and expensive modifications."

    remove the 'from' and it makes perfect sense.

    ...there are no and probably never will be any GTX Titan on sale that can deliver comparable performance without extensive and expensive modifications.
