22K points in 3dMark06

People from VR-Zone tried what is possible to do with new nVidia GeForce 8800GTX graphic card. They reported that on system containing of EVGA nForce 680i SLi motherboard, Intel Core 2 processor with 4 cores, overclocked from 2660 mhz to 4550 (incredible) and of course over voltaged, and 1 (and than 2) cards EVGA GeForce 8800GTX ACS3. Of course overclocked to incredible frequencies. Of course such trials you must do with dry ice or liquid nitrogen cooling, nothing else could handle such heat. But after all preparations one single card did more than 17000 3dMark 06 points, which is nice. Two used in sli mode were slowed down by processors, and so together they did only something under 23K points. But its still amazing, how powerfull such cards are, when somebody overclocks them to maximum.
