    The 100 000 point barrier in 3DMark 03 goes down thanks to Kingpin! A Core 2 Extreme CPU clocked at 5.2GHz and two GeForce 8800 Ultra cards (with frequencies for core and memory 985/1243 respectively) were used to achieve this feat.

    Hmmm. I stopped using 3DMARK03 when benching new video cards well over a year ago. Breaking the 100,000 mark is simply done for fun, since 3DMARK03 was designed for video cards produced in 2003-2004. New video cards need to be benchmarked with 3DMARK06 to get a "complete synthetic" test.

    I haven't even broken 20k yet (500 missing) and now I've lowerd OCs, 'cause it's getting warmer. 5x my power, quite nice.

    I dug up some of my last 3DMARK03 scores and wanted to comment further. Breaking 100,000 might be just for fun, but that really is a remarkable score. The best I scored a year or so ago was 12,000 with an AMD 3500+ and Radeon X850XT. One reason I stopped using 3DMARK03 was because it did not show any benefit when using dual core CPUs. In fact, my single core AMD 3500+ beat my AMD X2 3800+ by about 800 points under 3DMARK03. The opposite occured under 3DMARK06. Maybe a new patch has fixed this issue with 3DMARK03. Although... if using dual core CPUs under 3DMARK03 still offers no benefit over single core CPUs, then breaking 100,000 is that much more amazing because the video card is responsible for most of the increase. :toast:

    You have a pretty nice system, and you can't break 20k in 3Dmark03...? There is definitely something wrong with your setup. I can break 20k easily with a crappy clocking X2 4400+ and a crappy clocking 7900gt.

    get a new power supply. it would help.

    I just checked, it sayed my first core got 104 and my second core got 14 so it obviously hasn't fixed any multi core issues.

    3dMark03 seems like a more accurate test to me. My 8800GTX scored the same at stock settings 575/1800 and overclocked to 625/2000 on 3dMark06 mainly because of the CPU, but 3dMark03 the difference in scores between stock and overclocked settings is very obvious. Its still a useful bench, not just for fun.
