I'll mention only OSX related benches for now...
Haven't time to setup windows again just yet.

EDIT: setting up Win8 now.

There were a few D500 preorder people interested in a 3DMark bench test on the D500's but thats not OSX either.

The other question around at the moment is, has the GPU got ECC ram. Not sure if there is a tool to discover that in OSX?

Cheers

Is this a BTO or did you upgrade the RAM from a 3rd party? If it's BTO, this is the first one in the wild, right?

I added the ram. Updating to win 8.1 at the moment and then I'll run 3dmark.

3d Mark score on a vanilla version of windows 8.
This was at extreme settings at 1080.

I'm not sure how to tell, but it doesn't seem that both gpus were used even though crossfire is enabled.

Roykor,

It's great...my mari test ran at 17fps which isn't bad at all.

Everything else was put on hold until windows was installed.

Going to get back to the mac side now.

I'm not aware of a multi-core test for cinebench 11.5, but here are the results on OSX.

The performance I'm seeing on production work is wonderful for me at this point...I'll run this Sandra test and call it a night.

Ahh, you used Vantage. Can you use standard 3D Mark as that checks all the system including DirectX 11 and uses both GPU's.

For comparison, here are results for dual D700's on an 8 core

Sandra 2012 was installed but it didn't recognize the 2 cards.

2.23 tflops for a single gpu.
