    Only a couple of days ago Shamino succeeded in managing to reach 25.733 using a pair of GeForce 8800 Ultras but it seems that it didn't take long for his record to be broken. Kinc took first place at the ORB and now holds both the 3Dmark 05 and 06 records. The new record is 25.867 points by using two ASUS Radeon HD2900XT's running in a CrossFire configuration alongside of an Intel QX6700 overclocked to 5029MHz. The HD2900XT's and the CPU were cooled with liquid nitrogen thus making it possible to overclock the GPU's to the awesome 1140MHz core while memories ran at 960MHz. AMD/ATI's Radeon 2900 XT now holds both the first and second place in 3DMark 05, and first and third in 3DMark 06. The thing is how long will it take for someone to use Liquid Nitrogen to cool a couple of 8800 Ultras thus beating Kinc's record ?

    Lets also take under consideration what kind of cooling they used. I'm sure that with liquid nitrogen Shamino could easily reach 30.000 points.

    I did find this but it was Nordics photo so i chose not to use it.

    And futuremark has the top 3dmark 03-05-06 scores so i wonder what you are trying to say.

    They outgunned the Ultras cause Kinc used Liquid Nitrogen which is by FAR better than dry ice. When someone tries the same as Shamino but with liquid nitrogen we will see scores far above 30.000 points.

    OK, we need a server board (multi-socket) with PCIe16 so we can multi Xeon a nice score here. Any takers?

    Ehh from what I've read it doesn't make a difference. Either way, I don't think 3d mark 06 is run at a high enough res and has enough details to saturate a x8 pci-e connection. If it was something like 1920x1200 with 8xAA then maybe.

    The thing I find amazing is he only ran the memory on the cards at 960Mhz. It's capable of much more. I run mine @ 999. I think he's actually "sandbagging". AKA: He's holding back.
