^WOW. That looks pretty

But also, why is there only a 64 point increase over Slay's score? Surely a whole extra 480 would bump it up a little more than that?

Great job Lion. Wonderful score, though something seems to be amiss as it's only barely higher than Slay's.

I think the CPU is bottle necking? Cause guys running 980X score 5k or more. Also, I am sure the pci-e are not helping. This is the 760 EVGA X58 Classified board. 16x-8x-8x, according to GPU-z. Maybe more score with overclocking the gpu's. If anyone has any ideas....

trubritar on youtube with a 980X @ 4.4Ghz - scores P46845

*edit*
You guys hear that noise.....I think Slaymate just fired up his computer for some Vantage runs

Good news for me then
According to my supplier he'll have my cards ~10th-14th. So (fingers crossed) I should be up and running by the 17th at the latest.

Also, Running multiple GPU's requires more CPU power, since processing has to be done to manage the resources of each card at the same time, while combining the results.

Haha....yep couldn't stay away. I managed to snag 3 of these cards back on April 13th. Can't decide on next purchase....6x2 TB drives or one 980X chip.

S0ULphIRE and Apokalipse, I will be around your part of the world in Dec 2010 (if all goes according to plan). Wife and I are moving to NZ.

Gratz on breaking 20k gurusan
