Top overclockers set new records in 3DMark ray tracing benchmark

December 12, 2018

3DMark Port Royal is the world’s first dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers, and it's coming to 3DMark on January 8.  

Last weekend, we gave some of the world's top overclockers a chance to try Port Royal at the GALAX GOC 2018 contest in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Armed with a plentiful supply of liquid nitrogen, the overclockers competed to set the highest 3DMark Port Royal score for real-time ray tracing performance.

On the day, Tobias "Rauf" Bergström from Sweden took first place with a 3DMark Port Royal score of 11,069. With a heavily overclocked NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card and Intel Core i9-9900K processor, Tobias achieved an average of 51 frames per second in the Port Royal Graphics test.
