Techpowerup reports overclockers k|ngp|n and Shamino have broken the 40k barrier in 3DMark Vantage with a Core i7 965 system and GeForce GTX 295 Quad SLI graphics cards:
The LN2 cooled processor was clocked at 5110MHz and the GeForce GTX 295 cards were running with 1045MHz cores, 1252MHz memory and 1080MHz shaders.
The motherboard used was a standard EVGA X58 SLI running BIOS SZ1C combined with an LN2 cooled Core i7 965 at 5110MHz (even running on higher core speeds as you'll see down below). Memory used was a Kingston 3GB HyperX DDR3 2000MHz CL9 kit clocked at 1080MHz with timings of CL8-7-7-21. Finally, the GPUs of choice were two volt-modded EVGA GTX 295+ working in Quad-SLI, cooled by LN2 again. The new official 3DMark Vantage world record was set for the Performance segment with a properly calculated score of P40398 marks.
