Welcome to the latest edition of our Motherboard Memory Lane series here on HWBOT. Following on from our in-depth look at the iconic AMD Socket A platform last week, we now turn our attention to its successor, AMD Socket 754. The Socket retains a slightly odd position in the annals of technological history as it debuted with wholly new and updated 64-bit architecture processor series, yet quickly became the option of choice for budget PC builds as it was eclipsed by the Socket 939 platform. Let’s take a look at the Socket itself, the chipsets and processors that accompanied it, and of course some the landmark scores and submissions that happened during the Socket 754 era.

Introduced in September 2003, the AMD Socket 754 platform was marketed as the replacement for the long standing Socket A (or Socket 462 as was also known). It supported a new range of AMD processors based on architectures that include Newcastle, Venice, Clawhammer and Palermo - all of which come under the AMD K8 architectural umbrella, and were sold under Athlon 64 and Sempron brand names. Although Socket 754 motherboards essentially replaced Socket A motherboards, in most regions the two platforms overlapped. It’s successor, Socket 939 arrived in mid 2004 offering processors with a superior features set that essentially relegated Socket 754 to the budget PC space. This made the platform a popular choice with more affordable AMD Sempron processors.

[HWBOT X] Overclocking Workshops and Contests to be Held at Dreamhack Valencia, Spain: July 14-16

Spanish overclocking might not be quite as strong other countries around the world at the moment, but it’s great to see that HWBOT member and Extreme League overclocker ChentinoX is doing a fantastic job of help grow overclocking in the region. With the help of sponsors Antec, GIGABYTE, Corsair and HWBOT Chentino is setting up overclocking workshops and contest at Dreamhack Valencia, a great opportunity to spread the OC love to Spanish gamers and PC enthusiasts.

The workshops will take place on Thursday July 14th and feature a presentation which discusses the deeper aspects of overclocking including different cooling techniques and the technical approaches involved in pushing a modern CPU. The presentation will then cover some more esoteric topics such as delidding and voltmodding for example.

Attendees will be invited to make scores on the OC-ESPORTS platform on Friday 15th with systems available were they can compete on the XTU benchmark. On Saturday 16th the highest scorers will be invited to compete in Semi-Final and Finals. Contests from both days will be streamed live with the Finals and Sem-Finals taking place on the Dreamhack stage. Promises to be a great event, one that should really help to grow the youthful OC scene in Spain.

Dhenzjhen (Philippines) Breaks GPUPI 1B and 32B World Records with 10x Nividia Tesla GPUs

Today we bring you news of a pair of new World Record scores in the GPUPI 1B and 32B benchmarks. Both scores were submitted by Filipino overclocker Dhenzjhen who is clearly having plenty of fun with a new server build that involves ten Nvidia Tesla GPUs and a pair of deca-core Intel ‘Broadwell-EP’ Xeons processors.

The World Record score for the GPUPI 1B benchmark now stands at 1sec 458ms. The rig that Dhenzjhen used featured two Intel Xeon E5-2689 v4 processors, each of which boast ten Broadwell cores and twenty threads. That’s a total of 40 treads. Not bad. On the GPU side of things, it’s even more impressive. Each of the ten Tesla P40 GPUs in this system use Pascal architecture cores capable of 12 TeraFLOPS coupled with 24GB of GDDR5 memory and have a max power draw of up to 250 watts. That means a total power draw of close to 3,000 watts for the entire system.

The new GPUPI World Record is actually significantly faster than the next best score of 1sec 746ms. That was submitted by Russian overclocker Pijonson who harnessed the power of 8x GTX 1080 Ti cards to make his score. Dhenzjhen also did a GPUPI 32B run which also turned out to be the fastest ever, completing a run in just 1min 45sec 177ms. This is some way ahead of the next best score of 2mins 3sec 850ms which was also posted by Pijonson and his 1080Ti-based rig.

You can find the new World Record submission for GPUPI 1B here, as well as the GPUPI 32B World Record here

Most Valuable Submission of Week 25, 2017: Gold for Dhenzjhen (PH) and Ale Belo (IT)

In Week 25 of 2017, we received 3430 benchmark results from 803 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 60% of the active community. They were responsible for 37% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.

With the X299 Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X processors finally coming to the retail market this week, we can expect records being broken shortly. Last week was another quiet week with only two golden cups in the leaderboard. The first golden cup comes from Dhenzjhen from Philippines with a GPUPI 1B World Record! This feat was achieved with no less than ten (10!) NVIDIA Tesla M40 graphics cards working together. The new top score is 1.458sec which is almost 300ms faster than Pijonson's 8x GTX 1080 Ti setup. Next up is Ale Belo from Italy with a Hardware First Place in the Radeon HD 4890 Aquamark3 leaderboard. To achieve this the Italian uses a Kaby Lake Core i7 7700K at 6750 MHz paied with a Radeon HD 4890 GPU clocked at 1280/1280 MHz. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!

The most used hardware components of Week 25 are the Core i7 7700K (14.1%), GeForce GTX 1070 (11.9%) and the ROG Maximus IX Apex (3.6%).

The overclocking results submitted during Week 25 generated in total 100 World Record Points, 4100.9 Global Points, and 5713.6 Hardware Points. The distribution per League is as follows: 12% for Elite, 40% for Extreme, 8% for Apprentice, 18% for Enthusiast, 7% for Novice, and 23% for Rookie. The representation of the active community is as follows: 2% Elite, 7% Extreme, 4% Apprentice, 18% Enthusiast, 9% Novice, and 60% Rookie.

Throwback Thursday: GIGABYTE H55N-USB3 Proves That Mini-ITX is Not Bad for Memory Overclocking

Today being a Thursday, we are inclined once again to look back at a time when something really significant happened here on the HWBOT front page. This week we recall a day way back in June 2010 when the TeamAU crew used a GIGABYTE H55N-USB3 motherboard to post blistering memory and SuperPi 32M scores. How so? Well, it turns out that Mini-ITX form factor boards are pretty useful at overclocking. Who knew? This is what we wrote back on June 14th, 2010:

A few days ago, we already reported about the first overclocking results on the GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 mainboard. What made it so special is not the absolute frequency, but the size of this mainboard. Being µITX, there's a lot less room than on a, let's say, X58A-UD9 to add components to make overclocking work.

Australian overclockers Dinos22 and Youngpro are currently testing the overclocking capabilities of the board and especially the latter has shown that this board is capable of a lot more than meets the eye. Just check out the screenshots: DDR3-2420 CL7 with B2B=0 ... that's a lot of bandwidth. Also, it looks like the board's definitely doing well in terms of SuperPI 32M efficiency.

Of course, this is all very nice, but it also makes me wonder why all of us overclockers are buying the large mainboards for overclocking purposes. Talking with a lot of top overclockers, most of them say that for non-3D benching purposes a smaller sized mainboard would be more "an overclocker's board" than any of those XXL boards. Facts are facts: do you prefer a €100 board or a €500 board for SuperPI records if the efficiency is the same on both? Well, if the absolute CPU overclockability is roughly the same ... I know my answer.

Take a look at the original post from June 2010 here, if only for a peek at the comments that were made back in the day.

[Video] Buildzoid Explores AMD Ryzen P-State Overclocking

Buildzoid’s latest video tackles the subject of P-State overclocking with AMD’s latest Ryzen platform processors. It’s a topic that seems to divide opinion in certain segments of the hardcore overclocking community. The idea is that AMD Ryzen processors use power performance states, also known simply as P-States which involve different frequencies and voltages for different load conditions. This allows the system to dynamically alter voltages each core when you don’t need the power, and boost voltages when clocks when the system is under full load. That’s pretty much the theory anyway. According to Buildzoid, the reality may be somewhat different.

To quote Buildzoid himself. People want to know more about power savings. “Ok…here’s your freaking power savings!” He presents power draw data from a system based around an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor using an ASRock X370 Taichi motherboard. The power is measured at the wall in an attempt to genuinely see if a P-State configuration in BIOS actually effects what the system is pulling at various loads and frequencies. The outcome is, to again quote the man himself, that “P-State overclocking is pointless and a waste of time.”

You can catch the video from Buildzoid here on his Actually Hardcore Overclocking YouTube channel.

2017 Set to be Best Ever in Terms of Overclocking Contest Participation

The HWBOT team has really worked hard in the last few years to offer more Overclocking contests for its members. Feedback from the community has strongly indicated that the competitive nature of Overclocking is best enjoyed within the arena of a well run, well thought out contest with prizes on offer for the winners. With this in mind it’s great to see that several of our most recent contests, including the ROG OC Showdown Team Edition and the Rookie Rumble contest series are making 2017 one of the best years so far in terms of contest participation. Let’s take a moment to consider the numbers.

The ROG OC Showdown Team Edition contest ran from April 14th to June 5th and attracted 107 teams of overclockers from all around the globe. These teams involved 396 overclockers who together made a total of 1,111 scores submission to the OC-ESPORTS platform. In submission terms, only a handful of HWBOT contests such as previous Country Cup contests can boast better numbers. As a partner sponsored contest, it’s great to see the ROG OC Showdown Team Edition break all previous participation records.

Overclocking contests are an integral part of the HWBOT mission. We’ve expanded the number and type of contests that it now hosts on OC-ESPORTS. These now include the annual HWBOT Team Cup and Country Cup contests, which more recently have been joined by the Challenger Divisions, the Overclocking World Championship and the Old School is Best School contest series.

The one that really stands out is the increasingly popular Rookie Rumble series. This year we have seen some major Rookie action; Rumble #40 featured 528 rookies and 934 submissions while Rumble #41 saw 557 rookies make 1081 submissions. To top it all however, the Rookie Rumble #42 in March of this year actually marks the best attended contest ever on OC-ESPORTS with 615 Rookie overclockers making 1,328 score submissions.

Competitive, fun overclocking contests on OC-EPSORTS would not be possible without the massive contribution of all HWBOT partners. Hats off to ASUS, GIGABYTE, G.SKILL, Intel, Seasonic and Kingpin Cooling as well as contest partners Thermal Grizzly, EKWB and the Open Benchtable crew who have all made efforts to furnish the community with great contests backed by some great prizes.

Futuremark Launch Testdriver, Offers Easy Benchmark Automation

Futuremark and their parent company UL have just launched a new product called Testdriver. Targeted at hardware reviewers, system analysts, quality-control departments and IT admins, Testdriver promises to make it possible to benchmark and test hundreds of PCs at the same time from a single console. As well as supporting benchmarks from the Futuremark catalogue, it also offers support for integrating third party benchmarks apps.

Benchmarks are essential tools for testing and comparing PC performance. But manually benchmarking more than a few systems at a time quickly becomes time-consuming. And reporting is a challenge if you have to collect result files in person.

Testdriver makes benchmark automation easy. With Testdriver, you don't have to be physically present at the PCs you are testing. You can deploy and run benchmarks on any PC in your organisation from one central control console.

You can schedule benchmark runs, check the running status, and view benchmark results from any device on your network. Testdriver handles the remote installation and running of the benchmarks and automatically returns the results to a central database. With its powerful features and options, Testdriver makes it easy to benchmark hundreds, even thousands of PCs at a time.

You can learn more about Testdriver here on the UL website.
