3DMark Vantage and 3x GeForce GTX 280 + PhysX
So with the GeForce PhysX features currently being seeded to the press, and after my initial results I figured .. if PhysX processing over the GPU shows such a big advantage in the overall 3DMark vantage score, then surely I must be able to break my personal 25.000 points barrier ?
So roughly half an hour ago I started building my test rig again, this time prepared to go heavy ... and with a nice overclock.
I took a nForce 790i Ultra SLI with 2 GB DDR3 memory. A Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processor. Slapped three GeForce GTX 280 cards on there and started overclocking a little. I got the CPU cores clocked at 4200 MHz. The three GPUs are clocked at 631 MHz on the core, Shader domain at 1409 MHz and the memory towards 2600 MHz.
Now combined with the GeForce 177.39 driver and then with the NVIDIA PhysX (8.06.12) driver installed I fired up 3DMark vantage again. Here's the new personal score folks:
