Interview: Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido Sets New 3DMark Record

That's how it goes with the real pros: break a record, give an interview about it. Too bad no classified information on the setup details (ie: voltage, gpu testing info, ...) was given.

Earlier this week, renowned extreme overclocker Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido broke yet another 3DMark record by scoring X12554 in 3DMark11. The ace up his sleeve was the "CLASSIFIED" series of graphics cards and motherboards from EVGA. We caught up with him over email and asked him how he did it.

We heard you broke the world record for 3DMark11, again. What score did you achieve? What was former record?

I was able to get a score of X12,554 in 3DMark 11X (Extreme preset) a few days ago during a lab test session trying to push the limits of 4-WAY SLI benching. The former 3d11X record on previous generation chipset(X58) that stood for over 1/2 a year was X11,474 which was done using EVGA CLASSIFIED SR-2 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 and QUAD SLI technology. When X79 launched recently, that score was broken at around X12.2k. The newest score of X12,554 that was done was on EVGA?s new E779 X79 CLASSIFIED 4-Way SLI motherboard and EVGA?s CLASSIFIED GeForce GTX 580 ULTRA. This is the current top score in 3D11 Extreme.

A push will be made for X13k though, so it probably won?t last too long.

What clock speed were you able to take the GPU and CPU?

Here is it, 4th question:

Quote:
You used EVGA's "Classified" line of motherboards and graphics cards. What has your experience been like with these products? What makes them good for overclocking?
Where is my free cookie?
