Today at XtremeResources, overclocking Guru and 3D bencher extraordinaire OPPAINTER has posted up some incredible results with nVidia's recently introduced and released 7800GTX videocards. He has broken records in all 3 Futuremark 3DMark benches including : 48,046 in 3DMark 2001 as well as scoring 34,891 in 3DMark 2003 and 16,086 in 3DMark 2005. The power of these new generation GPU's has hardly been touched as these record breaking runs were done with the cards on straight watercooling.
His benching setup for these runs consisted of a custom PC_ICE Cascade phase change cooler cooling an AMD A64 FX55 running at 3640Mhz aboard a DFI LP UT SLI-DR mainboard. OCZ VX DDR is handling the ram duties along with power supplied via OCZ 600 watt PSU. Swiftech MCW 50 waterblocks were utilized for the straight watercooling on the 7800GTX videocards. It is to be noted that the videocards are unmodified and stock except for the cooling.
Stay tuned for future results from OPPAINTER as he will be making his next runs in the next couple of days by utilizing PC_ICE GPU cascade phase change cooling on each 7800GTX for even higher videocard overclocks - the next World records broken may be by incredible margins.
