Mad222 Third To Break The 69K 3DMark05 Barrier

3DMark05 is a weird benchmark. Similar to Aquamark, it's a 3D benchmark that scales with pretty much everything except for the VGA. Hence, the Hall of Fame features a wide selection of all kinds of graphics cards: GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 580, Radeon HD 7970, the old Radeon HD 5970 and even the ancient Radeon HD 4870X2. Pretty much every card can be used to score high, just make sure you have the right CPU, memory kit and operating system.

And that's exactly what Hong Kong based Mad222 has: all the right gear and everything working as it should. Even though the comment in the submission states that he is not satisfied with the IMC of this particular 6.75GHz Core i7 3770K, with speeds of DDR3-2570+ C8-11-8 it's not really a bad CPU. Combining this cracker chip with a GeForce GTX 680 - just one - he pushes himself to the top three overall in 3DMark05 and second place single GPU.

Congratulations, Mad222! For more information, check out the full submission page: click
