GeForce GTX 690 passes P20000 in 3DMark 11
The GeForce GTX 690 might be expensive, but it certainly is sexy. In Taiwan there is this pro-overclocker called TIN and he applied some tender love adn care (TLC) to the card, with the result of setting a new 3DMark 11 record -- P20962 points using a single GeForce GTX 690 graphics card (well okay 2 GPUs).
TIN achived this by tweaking an EVGA GeForce GTX 690 to clock speeds of 1509 MHz on the baseclock and 1639 MHz on the GPU Boost. The memory was clocked at an effecitve datarate of 7336 MHz. To be able to do that you will need subzero cooling and as such ... liquid nitrogen was used.
Processor wise there was nothing extreme going on, an Intel Core i7-3960X processor was overclocked towards 4.50 GHz. The setup used 16 GB quad-channel DDR3-2133 MHz memory and EVGA's X79 Classified motherboard.
