The Results

The results
As previously mentioned, all teams faced some significant problems throughout the contest, and some of the teams had to abandon the Crossfire setup, going for a single 4870 X2 benchmark. One of these was the Benchtec team, and they pulled a respectable 4.8Ghz clock, with a 3DMark06 score of around 28000 points. The dutch team pulled similar results with a single card too. Unfortunately, the world record wasn't going to be beaten on this event, but it wasn't through the teams efforts.The three winning teams had more luck and were able to run a bench with Crossfire, with the following scores and positions:
  • 1st Sweden - 31976
  • 2nd Poland - 31962
  • 3rd Spain - 31217
Considering the problems faced, I think these scores are very respectable and every team who competed should be applauded. When I asked Dave from the Benchtec team how he felt about the event and the problems faced, he said he was obviously disappointed, but the day was very worthwhile and enjoyable, a feeling echoed by all participants. We hope the teams enjoy more success on their next events.
