We've broken 10,000 in 3DMark05! news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Over the past week we've been playing around with various SLI setups in our labs and just this morning we managed to break the 10,000 mark in 3DMark05 (3DMark05 Project Comparison here). We did it with an ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe board (nVidia nForce4 SLI of course), OCZ PC3200 memory (low latency stuff), two BFG GeForce 6800 Ultra's (overclocked a bit - still experimenting with overclocking while in SLI) with some non-WHQL beta drivers and AMD Athlon 64 3800+ @ 2558MHz (12 x 213).


We are currently at 10313 which makes it a pretty damn good setup and we are pushing the system harder to try and ramp up the score some more but it's proving a little hard in our hot Aussie summer.



Over the remainder of this month we'll have a couple SLI performance articles (6600GT and 6800 Ultra in SLI) along with our bi-yearly Performance PC article which looks at building the fastest computer system we can. Stay tuned - it's going to be fun!
