Okay, by looks of things I'll be kept out the top ten, but I'm close and whilst I wanted to be able to run todays (and "tomororws" games at a decent speed), I'm not too fussed (plus I could add an extra Geforce 980 if necessary or overclock): upgrading the CPU may be a littler pricer: but we'll see in a few years.
Just got our new Vortex IV today. A huge thank you to Matthew for all his help and everyone else at PCS who got this out to us so fast knowing the critical time pressure we are under. Here is the out of the box Firestrike (windows updates installed only), browser was open and a couple of other windows but no significant load aside from the benchmark.
Received my Vortex IV SE today and just ran 3DMark on the temporary Windows that's installed by PC Specialist until I get a chance to re-install my own OS tomorrow so I'll see if there's any driver updates and if they make any difference .
Fire Strike score = 8184 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 8Gb and Intel Core i7-4810MQ Processor @ 2.8Ghz
RAM reported wrong its actually 3000mhz DDR4, guess its not in their db yet.
Small OC to new computer. Cost a bomb so id expect it to top the leader boards. Will be doing higher stress tests later, once ive had it for longer than a week . Dont want to go wrecking it in under a week haha. Will aim to stretch the score, but i will be conservative and improve the OC/score slowly to make sure i dont do any damage.
