    Kyosen, a world famous overclocker from the land of the rising sun, has done it again. Using a Merom Core Duo chip, 2GBs of Supertalent DDR2, and a X1900 Crosfire setup, Kyosen has broken the previous world records in 3D mark 01, 05, and Aquamark 3. The CPU was clocked a little over 3.4 GHz. The CPU was cooled with dry ice, and the videocards were on water. His 3Dmark 01 score was 62,398 points, the 3Dmark 05 score was 20,672, and the new Aquamark3 record is 180,329. In addition to this, he has achieved a 14.734s 1m superpi score. While not a world record, it certainly is amazing.

    Here is his thread on XS. The most recent scores are posted on page 6.

    you might be in trouble if your 3dmark01 score is lower than the WR score for 3dmark 05... *cough* me *cough*

    kinda funny that even dual x1900s out perform quad sli... but anymore it is ati dominated. current gen cpu is owned by amd. next gen should be very iffy but im leaning to intel!
