There’s no doubt about it – Fermi IS a very powerful card. Until just a few minutes ago, I thought that it would take a while before the Fermi would catch up with the most powerful Radeon HD 5870 setups, but two very special overclockers have convinced me that the Fermi era has begun.
Agreed, the used setup is pretty extreme as well as the frequencies of the hardware, so this kind of performance will not be seen on each and every Fermi-based configuration, but it still is amazing to see 4 GTX480’s clocked at 1018/1250MHz hit an ‘easy’ 60k in Vantage. Using the new SR-2 mainboard, which allows users to use two Westmere-based products on one mainboard, with two X5680’s clock at 5.6GHz, these two top-overclockers actually break the entire series of 3DMark Vantage records … priceless?
