Today seems to be the day for world records to be broken in the performance area and probably loads of LN2 to be consumed around the world.

Corsair just sent out an announcement that using no less than eleven new Force F200 SSD drives with an Areca 1680i RAID controller (the same one I personally use - it's impressive!) were able to smash the PCMark Vantage world record by almost 2,000 points.

The previous record holder, SteveRo from Xtreme Systems, managed to score 31,333 PCMarks also with a new Intel Core i7 980X processor, but obviously not as many SSDs. The Corsair Labs team were able to score a new record of 32,947 PCMarks to beat the former best score by around 5%. You can see the results over at this page.

Corsair used Windows 7 64-bit with a 980X CPU overclocked to 5362MHz on an EVGA X58 SLI Classified motherboard with 6GB of Dominator GTX2 memory also of course overclocked to a frequency of 2144MHz with CL7 timings. For graphics, an ATI Radeon HD 5870 video card was used.

Anyone else going to break a world record today? We'll be waiting for you here!
