TeamAU's Tour de Force - 7x World Record! (and one silver)

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!

3DMark06 56366 marks GeForce GTX Titan Australia TeamAU

Default I would call the 3DMark entries suspect

No SystemInfo at all, no way to check for a number of potential "tweaks".

* Time measurement data not available. The validity of the result cannot be determined.
* SystemInfo scanning was not enabled for this benchmark run. Please enable SystemInfo from benchmark settings and re-run the benchmark.
* Processor is not recognized
* Graphics card is not recognized
* Graphics driver is not approved


..your call if you call a result like this a record, but I wouldn't.

The irony. I got accused of being a cheater and threatened with a 12 month ban for posting a result with time measurement issues, yet the accuser posts a WR result with the same issue and even more.

I randomly had sh*t like "Time measurement data not available. The validity of the result cannot be determined." for no reason even tho I know everything was 100% legit.

So no, just no.

Oh thank goodness somebody else has spoken up about that! I get it randomly at times, too.
Yet Mike gets a score yanked because of it.buuuuuu
I think it might be tied to FSB OCing.
As for card not recognized and drivers and all that..Futuremark hasn't gotten around to adding the newer cards/drivers to their database.
also pretty weaksauce.

I don't see the relevance of having the driver approved. IMO any driver is approved until it's showing signs of being bugged. We can't approve all drivers, can we? There are hundreds of older nvidia drivers, just the 169.xx series alone has like 20 I think.
