"Innovatek, Gainward deliver big SLI scores"

IN ONE OF THE best designed PCs that we saw at CeBIT was a beast waiting for us to unleash its performance. At Gainward's booth, we had a chance to see an Athlon FX55 in an SLI board, overclocked to 2.7 GHz powered with two Gainward water-cooled Geforce 6800 Ultra cards.
We run the two usual suspects, 3Dmark03 and 3Dmark05, and managed to get some impressive scores. Innovatek water kit was cooling both the cards and CPU without any problems. The machine was supplied and assembled by Gainward Nordic and is a shipping unit.
We scored 24499 in 3Dmark03 and 11446 in 3Dmark05 and those are the highest scores that I saw in my life delivered by a water cooled PC. I believe that the CPU could be pushed even harder but even clocked at 2.7GHz, it was a breakthrough score.
