The embedded Facebook post below already hinted towards this, but now it's sort of official. On their annual meetup, TeamAU set not one, not two, not and-so-on, but seven (7!) world records. The benchmark records range from 3DMark06 over 3DMark Vantage to the latest 3DMark. There are two systems used in combination with a set of four Radeon R9 290X graphics cards: a 6.1GHz Ivy Bridge-E on Rampage IV Black, and a 6.4GHz Haswell combined with the Z87X-OC motherboard.
Althought many feel the term World Record is tossed around so much these days it loses its meaning, this is a pretty impressive achievement from the boys Down Under. Not only because these are overall benchmark records, but because there are so many of them. Remember Hipro5 or Oppainter's trifecta's from back in the day? This is exactly like that!
Congratulations goes out to the entire TeamAU: Bob(nz), Fester, Dinos22, SniperOz, Moloko, and Youngpro. Awesome benching!
