Well AMD is shouting about a new performance world record. This time they are showing off a score of 35,698 in 3DMark06.

 

The CPU in question was the Phenom II X4 940 pushed up to an astonishing 6.1GHz under Liquid Nitrogen (-188.4c). The GPUs used were two ATi 4870X2s with 830MHz core and 950MHz memory speeds. The CPU was the only part cooled by LN, the GPUs ran on the stock coolers.

I guess we need to wait for the Intel crowd to respond, things are looking interesting.
