We’re halfway through the MSI Xtreme Speeder P55 competition and world records continue to be broken. A week ago member Topalof broke the CPU-Z record of a Lynnfield-core processor with his i7 860 running at 5735Mhz on a MSI P55-GD65, breaking Hicookie’s previous record of 5720Mhz.
Benchbros scored a hattrick by breaking the CPU-Z, SuperPi 32M and wPrime world record at once with his Xeon X3460 on a MSI P55-GD80. Hazzan made a very impressive statement too, by breaking the SuperPi 32M record on Sunday with his i5 750 on a MSI P55-GD65, and entering the top 3 in wPrime 32M and CPU-Z.
The current standing after 2 weeks of competition:
If Topalof, dami1stm-florian76-jmax_oc-marmott and coolaler can keep their position for 2 more weeks, they will respectively win $2000, $1500 and $1000 USD with a bonus of $1000 for having the best SuperPi/wPrime/CPU-Z submission, and $500 bonus for breaking a world record! However, with the competition being fierce, we expect to have some movement in the rankings the coming weeks!
Remember, even if you think you will not be able to break into the top 3, it’s still a good idea to do your best and make a submission, as 6 random participants are weekly chosen to receive a MSI Big Bang Fuzion motherboard or a Big Bang Bag.
Records to break:
Best CPU-Z submission: Topalof – 5735Mhz i7 860 on MSI P55-GD65
Best SuperPi 32M submission: Topalof – 6min 53sec 740ms on MSI P55-GD65
Best wPrime 32m submission: Chaos – 4sec 710ms on MSI P55-GD80
