Actually the i7 record was January 4th.
The AMD record was January 12th.
So they didn't beat the existing #1 score (8 days later).
lol this is pretty crazy. Probably the most extreme organized overclocking session i've ever seen. Never heard of liquid helium lol
I dunno much about 3dmark or how well the 4870x2s overclock, but couldn't they have increased their score a lot by cooling the GPUs in the same way and going for some insane overclock on them as well? They didn't even really mention the gpus in the video...
I read the story in a couple places, but I haven't seen the vid.
they've edited the video in such a way i cant really tell whats going on, but it sounds like they didn't finish the test at 6.5, so they dropped back to 6.3 and ran it, and got the record. Still, of course ridiculously impressive. And, obviously they used a DFI board... None of this Asus ROG crap.
Time for liquid hydrogen. -272C.
--also happens to be the definition of explosive.
