3DMark Vantage World Record Feat Cracks P47002

A team of overclockers Sampsa and Stummerwinter set a new world-record score for 3DMark Vantage (Performance preset). The duo set the record using a test-bed made of Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition, four ASUS ATI Radeon HD 5870 in CrossFireX mode, 6 GB of Corsair Dominator GTX2, and the upcoming ASUS Rampage III Extreme motherboard to seat it all.

The Core i7 975 XE processor sailed through to 5508.9 MHz (27 x 204 MHz @ 1.664V, HTT on), with the memory running at 2040 MHz DDR (7-8-7-21). The four ASUS Radeon HD 5870 cards were hand-picked from a batch of 18 pieces. Core/memory speeds of 1325 MHz / 1300 MHz, were set. Catalyst drivers version 9.12 were used for the record feat.

The team achieved a 3DMark Vantage score of P47002, with a GPU score of 53,911 points, and CPU score of 33,949. To cool the machine, F1 EE & Tek 9.0 liquid nitrogen evapourators were used for the GPUs and CPU. The duo credit their success (besides their skills), to Kinc and Christian from ASUS and Thomas from Intel.

Dominator GTX2 but yet run them at 2000? They can probably do 2200 with those timings :shadedshu

I know, but my point was that the score Bta has posted will most likely be superseded when the 980X is officially released.

Bah! LN2 cooling equipments are well made and methods are well researched, it's getting more and more boring these days.

I agree with pron. Its one thing to get these scores under such extreme cooling. Lets start breaking world records under conventional cooling. Then ill be impressed.

Its against the rules to use PhysX on the bot

Those scores are from hours and hours trying to find the right 5870 to run in the bench
