3DMark Vantage record broken with Core i7

Nordic Hardware noticed ASUS is running an ad that one of its upcoming X58 motherboards and a Intel Core i7 processor have broken the 3DMark Vantage record. There's not much information available though.
ASUS has namely posted a banner that speaks of the most extreme overclocking motherboards on the market and that it has achieved a new 3DMark Vantage world record. The result is presented as 31,389 points and can be compared to the current world record of 30,529 points.

Even if ASUS reveals nothing surrounding the record result but has actually posted a P5Q Premium in the animation we can guarantee you that this is not a result with any platform available today. First of all it's a bit too good for 3DMark Vantage with today's hardware, at the same time ASUS has shared nothing about the hardware, something it would if it could.
