Kinc, Elmor bust 3DMark 06 record with CrossFireX
Elmor and Kinc have been spending the weekend benching with ASUS’ latest hardware and with the help of some exotic cooling, they were been able to move the bar another notch. With two ASUS EAH3870X2 TOP, which sports two AMD RV670 circuits on one PCB, they had four graphics cores working together to break the world record. In the end they were able to reach 32,601 points. They used ASUS recently launched P5E64 WS Pro motherboard along with an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650, C1 stepping, cooled by some liquid nitrogen.
The processor was overclocked to a mere 5.719GHz, which is 100MHz less than the previous world record, but still enough for them to break it. The graphics cards were overclocked to 990MHz, while the real key was the memory overclock that reached 1125MHz, much thanks to the 0.8ns Qimonda chips using ASUS’ in-house design. The cards were air-cooled.
It’s only a matter of time until Kingpin or perhaps Fugger return the title to Nvidia – then again they may also steal the crown using AMD’s boards.
