Equipped with the CoolIT liquid cooling system, a pair of ATI 2900XT video cards has scored over 20K in 3DMark06! Here's a video of the cooler in action.
i want that pc...
thats impressive. has anyone done a test with two 8800 in sli?
The record is 24,000 with 8800 GTX Ultra SLI.
ati doesnt have SLI. its called Crossfire
no one has said it was called SLI
The 2x00 series is relatively unimpressive compared to the 8800s. I got 13000 in 3D Mark 2006 with 7900 GTs Voltmodded in SLI. [It's the ORB record, you can check.]
i wonder how it feels when console owners beleive their CPU's and GPU's are better then a PC. (I own a 360) lol i love when someone tells me that the Cell is more powerful then my quadcore CPU
Has always been a little dumb IMO. While a mid to high end PC can outperform a console they are usually 2 times as much at least. Hell the video cards themselves are as much as consoles. A person with decent computer knowledge can rig a system to blow consoles away. But with drivers and OS issues, graphics settings and so forth it can be a little hit and miss. With consoles you put the game in and you know your going to get the best possible graphics you can without really tweaking. Is PC better you bet. Is console more convenient I think so.
Still the 8800 has a higher score. But I heard the "Ultra" isn't as Ultra as all and that the GTX is actually better...
