Champions config Russians set a record in 3DMark Vantage

    Just a few hours ago, participants of the Russian team for overclocking and benchmarking set a world record in one of the most difficult graphic disciplines to date - 3DMark Vantage. The record was set by well-known Russian overclockers - Smoke (the best overclocker in Russia according to the international competition base ) and Lex_(one of the most literate hardmod overclockers in Russia, our "technomaniac"). The record was set in the discipline of single graphics cards (1x GPU) using the "new" Radeon HD5870, clocked up to 1395/1256 MHz (core / memory frequencies, respectively) and cooled with liquid nitrogen. The result was 26,238 3DMarks. The previous record was set by American overclockers Brian Y. and was 26146 3DMarks.

    Details under the cut.


    Here it is - a test bench of champions:

    Intel Core i7 960 processor
    EVGA X58 SLI Classified
    motherboard Corsair Dominator GT 3x2Gb DDR3 2000MHz CL8
    graphics card XFX Radeon HD5870
    Enermax Revolution 1050W power supply
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 160Gb hard drive


    To obtain such a high result, the Intel Core i7 960 (3.2GHz) processor was overclocked to a frequency of 5200 MHz when cooled with liquid nitrogen to a temperature of -90 degrees Celsius. The RAM worked at a frequency of 2085 MHz with timings of 7-8-7-20 1T. The frequencies of the video card were 1395/1256, and the temperature during the test on the video card was maintained at -152 degrees. The voltage to the core was just crazy 1.58 V. Let me remind you that the nominal voltage at the core is 1.16 V. And most of the overclockers are simply afraid to supply voltages above 1.4 V. But nothing scares the Russians! The core voltmod and OCP mod did the trick. I would like to separately note the persistence of our overclockers, because they achieved such a record with great difficulty, more than one dewar with liquid nitrogen was transferred to preparation.


    In the photo, Smoke and Donny (special thanks for the organization) are happy with the result. Once again, I congratulate our guys on setting a world record and wish them further development and conquering new heights of overclocking.

    In the comments we suggest discussing the level of performance of new video cards and asking questions about overclocking your systems - we can help with what we can. The most interesting cases of dispersal with your participation will be published to replenish the general knowledge base :).
