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.

As have you.

TBF, my post is pretty cryptic, but this one that we've both linked to isn't officially accepted and therefore doesn't count, but my point is - as soon as the 980X is officially released then we'll see new records broken - interesting that a nearly 6GHz hexa-core CPU is almost beaten by a current quad.

Dominator GTX2 but yet run them at 2000? They can probably do 2200 with those timings :shadedshu
Not worth it if it hinders cpu clocks.

Then i say break records with i5 :p We can do 2400mhz ram clocks and still rock the cpu :rockout:

Yeah, but i5/ 1156 NEEDS the high clocks for bandwidth, 1366 doesn't. ;)

Touche` but then again 3dmark dosent really take full advantage of all trichannel bandwidth. Speed is where its at and timings in a bench war. Which is why i bought i5.

Speed=bandwidth. Tri channel just doesn't need the clocks that dual channel does to get the same performance. Although tighter timings are always better, bandwidth hits a point of no return eventually.

Its like the difference between DDR2 and DDR3. 775 in the old days couldnt take advantage of the speed of DDR3 but i7 can. Other parts bottleneck trichannel. I personally think they shoulda skipped the confusion of tri and went quad.

Whats sad is that screen shot wouldn't be enough proof for our very own Vantage benchmark thread. Wheres the time stamp?! Nope, Sorry no time stamp no record.

"GTFO! No time-stamp or it didn't happen!"
