3DMark's world record shattered

Swedes take the home run using AMD, DFI, GigaByte, and Corsair...

IF YOU FEEL that your spanking new AMD powered gaming rig is the best one in the world, think again.
Swedish hard-core overclockers, daily residents of site kindly named "Hardware Asylum" broke a 3Dmark world record. Which one, you might ask? The answer is - all of them.

Kinc scored 50,614 3Dmarks in eternal 3D Mark2001SE, 40,061 3Dmarks in 3DMark03 and sadly, Kinc couldn't manage over 20K in 3DMark05, so his score is a mere 17,560.

In terms of hardware, this luna... enthusiast used AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 cooled with proprietary "MMouse" Mousepot Dry Ice cooler. This helped CPU to reach skyrocketing clocks for AMD processors - all the way to 3.92GHz, lying on a board that seems to be overclocker's favourite board - the LANParty NF4-SLI-D.

The graphics part consisted out of a single GigaByte's 7800GTX (256MB version, not the upcoming one), clocked to 675MHz for the GPU and 792MHz DDR (that's 1.58 GHz). The memory in place was Corsair XMS, killing all those nasty rumours that you can't overclock LANParty motherboard if Corsair was used.

However, the party will not last long, since nVIDIA's upcoming baby features a highly tweaked PCB, which could aid overclockers in their target to reach the holy grail, a 1GHz/1GHz clock for the GPU/RAM on nVIDIA's side as well. Well, who said you can't clock 110nm chips? Wasn't me.

Yeah, I saw this .....amazing stuff lol
Now I wish that my blimming 3500+ would even do 2.4 / 2.5ghz let alone all that.

Yep seen that aswell .. simply amazing! i wonder what he's going to achieve with a 512MB GTX :D

If they would of taken a dual core CPU with the latest drivers, with a massive OC, they would have gotten an even higher score.

Hmm i dont think dual cores overclock massively like single ones ... i could be mistaken though.

a 3.9 GHZ A64? most P4's can't even do that.

A hell of alot of P4's can break 4GHz even the Pentium D 2.8 can with good cooling.

About the drivers, for World Record attempts/runs they have to use Futuremark Approved Drivers.

Even if he had a DC, you can't go wrong with a 3.9Ghz A64!

Look how long the 77.72's been out. Nearly 5 months and futuremark said they only do WHQL drivers from their site. There has been 4 WHQL drivers since the 77.72 came out from their site for downloading. But thing is that they approve ATI drivers in less than 2 weeks when they are on their site when they come out each month. :rolleyes:

ATI probably pays them money :P

One would think that frost would be bad for it... :\ Im sure if you did that enough you would eventually crack the PCB or something from constant extreme cooling and heating.

That is INSANE! A SINGLE card got 3 1\2 times my 05 score! I wonder how much effect the CPU actually had in 05, I know mine only increased about 500 going from an Athlon XP 2Ghz to my current A64 at 2.5.

Hmm if thats a single card record then why there are 2 GTXs in the pics :confused:

It was definitely an SLI record.........

Those scores imposible with a single card......

quote.....

"HWA's very own Kinc has reached an incredible milestone.

Kinc has reached 40,000 points in 3DMark '03, a feat that has never before been reached.

Not only did Kinc reach 40,000 in 3DMark '03, but he also reached 50,000 points in 3DMark 2001SE.

On top of both of these milestones, Kinc has also set the Futuremark 3DMark '05 world record.

Kinc was using a DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-D, AMD Athlon FX-57, GeForce 7800GTX's, and Corsair DDR memory.

Kinc also holds the highest AMD cpu clocks on the ORB to date. He was using HWA's very own mmouse's (MickeyMouse's) Mousepot Dry Ice / LN2 container.

Below you can see screenshots of his results on the ORB:

First we'll start with Kinc's amazing 50,614 points in 3DMark 2001SE:"


Note the use of the plural of 7800gtx

This officially makes this Kinc fellow the l33test man on the face of the planet. And to quote someone else online:

That's like some kind of crazy Batman supervillain level of overclocking...he has to steal diamonds and stuff to keep it going.
