    every tryed to make your own special freeware linux OS build that you could update and reuse for free and rewrite and adapt as you see fit? just wonder if you ever thought of that? or make a pc that runs only freeware software. like linux as example. that also could run games,edit videos and make 3d movies and games... yes there are pretty strong freeware software. that can do all that.

    Thanks for showing us how unskillful actually you are. More pricey GPUs doesn't mean they are good for games.
    If you really want to beat score, use: (4x SLI) msi geforce® rtx 2080 ti gaming x trio 11gb gddr6

    I dont know if you noticed it but I noticed that the fan on top of the cards on the second bench kept slowing down. At one point it stopped and started up again. That could mean over heating could be causing the drop in performance or lack or a power problem could be causing a problem with the fan, that is causing the over heating.
