Combining the monster GPU configuratino with a Core i7 3930K at 5.7GHz, the counter stopped at 35210 points. Note that the cards are only clocked at 1.4GHz core frequency - something that makes us believe this man from Detroit has a couple of backups up his sleeve. In any case, this result is now the score to beat. Who takes up that challenge?

Does not impress me at all. Out-of-reach hardware that only hardware reps can get a hold of or afford.

What? The only "out-of-reach" bit is the price. He hasn't got anything special there. Anybody can buy the EVGA power board, it just down to fitting it.

I don't see any epower boards in those pics? Looks like normal vmods without making the card a zombie.

As many as he needs. He is THE most recognized overclocker and this is THE fastest single GPU card. This card isn't cheap for Nvidia, they will be sure to make the biggest splash possible for the enthusiast market.

Well yes but you can specifically disable the tess/lower tess levels from AMD drivers and get quite a big boost. LOD tweaking is more like fine tuning and you need to find the proper values for the card you're benching.

I remember when they were discussing the tessellation way back on hwbot. Finally they said its only fair since Nv guys have been using their driver hacks and getting away with it for years!

But how much of a boost is it? I thought the GTX Titan was competing with a 690 which is almost the performance of 2 680's, where the 7970 is a bit better than 1 680. Shouldn't the Titan be scoring a lot better?
