    I just found out that on the computex a team of specially invided guys made a new 3DMark Vantage world recored P23254pt using liquide nitrogen and a Foxconn Dreadnought mobo as well as 2x Foxconn GeForce 9800 GX2 - the guys are:
    Kingpin, the japanese Fredyama, Ducki ja New Beetle and known from XtremeSystems Giorgio Primo (also known from TPU benchmarks) and Dimas.

    That's a pretty awesome score. Looks like nvidia is working out those quad-gpu drivers as well. Almost 24k gpu score, thats just awesome. I bet it actually runs smooth there. Probably won't last out the summer though, once these new cards get rolling.

    Yeah maybe. I dunno though, 24k on the graphics, thats pretty crazy. I get 6k on the gts 512, which of course is 1/4 of the cores and the score. Thats almost like full scaling across all 4 cores, although the ln2 and the vmods I'm sure helped out. Still, I don't know if 2 x2s can hit that.

    My 9800gx2 is hitting almost 10k without a oc even. So that 24 is sure to happen.

    and nice job by them :toast:

    Giorgos th holds the record in Alcpones 3DMark06 thread for a single card with a 3870X2 even though there are Geforce 9800X2s represented too:
    ATi HD3870X2 @ 878/1098 - 24842 - QX9650 @ 5429.5Mhz - 417.7FSB <-- Highest HD3870X2

    If you notice that x2 score is w/ a qx9650 at over 5ghz, while the gx2 score is under 5ghz and dual-core 8500. Quads, especially extreme quads, make a huge difference in 3d06, where cpu score carries far more weight than in vantage. Equally clocked and core cpus that gx2 wins easily. Plus we're talking about quad gpu here, a whole nother ball game.

    No my fault.. i didnt remember that vantage is a little bit different in calculting the scores when i thought that 2 3870x2 can make a WR too.. thats why I call me a noob.. no offence taken..

    I bet this benchmark record won't last too long. Wonder what the new beefy video cards will be able to pull in this. Dual GTX280's or whatnot.

    Yeah, the new cards may show that we can get WAY HIGHER in Vantage and also 3dmark06... But, We have to start somewhere!

    I'm just thinking that dual GTX280s or 4870x2s will make vantage obsolete as quickly as it came out :p
