Very good, have a cookie

It seems a new world record has been achieved for Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD5 in the 3DMark Vantage single GPU category by overclocker HiCookie who managed to reach a 33,362 3DMark score and rank himself as No.1 on HWBot website.

While an achievement like this generally shows how good a board is at delivering a stable OC, the card itself plays a significant part too, of course.

Generally records like this get broken using the 1366 Core i7s on the x58 chipset, not the 1156 P55 boards, but it goes to show the potential of certain cheaper boards and chips.

It also probably didn't do any harm that HiCookie clocked his ATI Radeon HD 5970 to 1GHz on the core, which is what AMD has always claimed it was capable of, but which has not always been the case due to voltage regulator module (VRM) overheating.

 

 

According to the score table, HiCookie seems to have absolutely decimated the record for the single card vantage, with second place going to Smoke (Russian Overs Team), with 29,518 marks and third to BenchBrothers.de (AwardFabrik), with 29,411 marks. HiCookie achieved 33,362. Impressive.

It's even more impressive considering it appears to be the only P55 board/system in the top 20 ranking of the single card vantage.

And? 3DMark isn't a game. You can't play it. Rather pointless “record” IMO.

It's a benchmark. There's a reason it's not playable.

This is impressive, especially given the lack of PhysX score cheating (I assume - haven't read it to see if he's got hacked drivers enabling a spare card).

Overclocking is a sport - pushing hardware to the limit and then some takes dedication and skill.

There's more to PCs and graphics cards than gaming. Any moron with half a brain could work that out.

Overclockers do it for the engineering, the sponsorship, the competition, the understanding of the platform inside and out. Not to play ‘games’, whatever they are. Now I'm going to go play the ‘Borderlands’ simulation on my overclocked PC. OMG I HOPEZ IT GETZ 40 FPS LULZ

Bitter NVidia troll spotted.

Got some Fermi benchmarks yet? No? Didnt think so.

Come back in March when you have a card to run against these results.

Don't know how that works when his graphics are ATI?
