Just broke 17K 3D Marks with Innovision 6800 Ultra and Dual Cascade cooling. 17182 3D marks with 603 Core 1250 Memory: Ran with 61.11 drivers and fastest card on the ORB right now. Had quite a bit of trouble trying to get the card to stop throttling when the GPU gets too cold. I really
We had a chance to take a peek at IWILL’s next generation server technology in Computex 2004. Two servers caught the eye, the 8P Operton and the 48 HDD quad Operton server. 5U8P: 8 way Operton 5U Sata Server - Supports up to 8 Operton 800 series processors - Supports up to 64 GB of
An NVIDIA NV45 Ultra card was spotted at Computex today with core clock running at 350Mhz and memory clock at 1Ghz. The core clock should be higher than 350Mhz when launched and the memory used is 2ns Samsung GDDR3. The whole architecture is similar to the NV40 but it has PCI Express interface through the
