3DMark Triple Crown Achieved by Hardware Asylum

Posted on Saturday, Nov 05 2005 @ 01:08 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Team Hardware Asylum has broken all three Futuremark 3DMark world records. We have set the world records in 3DMark 2001SE, 3DMark ’03, and 3DMark ’05. They have also reached a few milestones with these records. They are the first to ever reach 50,000 points in 3DMark 2001SE, and the first to ever reach 40,000 points in 3DMark ’03. They also hold the world record of 17,560 points in 3DMark ’05.

To obtain these results thet were using an AMD Athlon FX-57 which was liquid nitrogen cooled to 3.9GHz (3900MHz) benchmarking stable. They were also using voltage modified Gigabyte GeForce 7800GTX video cards in SLI. The video cards were cooled by dry ice.

They also set the record for the highest AMD clock speed on the Futuremark ORB (Online Result Browser) in history with an amazing clock of 3939MHz.

This is one of the few times that a single team has held all three Futuremark 3DMark records. They reached two of the largest milestones in history with 3DMark 2001SE and ’03, and they claim they are now pushing to obtain even higher scores.
