Just For Fun

One of my coworkers built the fastest machine he could, and then tried to set a 'world record' Compiz benchmark. :)

The specs:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 3.33Ghz Overclocked to 3.7Ghz
Ram: 4GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer
Video Card: BFG 9800GTX+ 512MB
Drives: Dual LG DVD+/-RW, Dual 500GB 7200RPM drives
Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Black Steel ATX Full Tower (3x 230mm Fans, 1x 140mm Fan)

Xubuntu 8.10 running kernel 2.6.27-9, Compiz 0.7.8, Nvidia Driver Version 177.80 running @ 1680x1050 24bit color

And the results:

Looks like I'll have to overclock my dual-8800 machine further

Excuse me. TWO THOUSAND FPS? I have the SAME VIDEO CARD (but the 256 MB edition) and I only get to about 150 FPS with the speed limiter disabled! What is WRONG with my gear?

Rudd-O, you don't have the same card. The GTX doesn't come in 256mb, so you must have a 9600 or 8800 GT.
