Intel pulled the NDA up on their new Core i9-7980XE processor, with our review on it right here, but now EVGA along with their resident OC champion K|NGP|N have broken 4 world records in 3DMark.




K|NGP|N used the new Core i9-7980XE and put it under LN2 cooling to reach 5.7GHz, using 4 x EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N graphics cards @ 2.3GHz GPU clocks each, blowing the doors off of previous 3DMark world records.




K|NGP|N said: "Using the new Intel Core i9 7980XE CPU at over 5.7GHz on an EVGA X299 Dark and 4x EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N's at over 2.3GHz, allowed me to annihilate the existing 3DMark Time Spy World Record at 37,596 points! The new Intel Core i9 7980XE CPU, EVGA X299 Dark and EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti K|NGP|N are incredible!".




Here's the screenshot that shows the 3DMark Time Spy run with 37,596 total score with the GDDR5X on the GPUs hitting a huge 6399MHz (that is INSANE), which is 12.8Gbps.
