GIGABYTE H55/H57 IGP OC Challenge

Next to the HWBOT OC Challenge, which mainly focuses on the old-skool part of overclocking, GIGABYTE has launched an H55/H57 IGP overclocking competition. We will be competing against each other using the brand new 32nm Core i3/i5 processors which have a graphics processor integrated on the CPU package. Benchmark: 3DMark Vantage – Performance. For the winner, there’s a GA-X58A-UD7 waiting and in addition one GA-P55A-UD7 will be sent to one lucky winner.

So,

signature1.jpgGIGABYTE would like to extend a special IGP overclocking challenge on HWBOT this March for those of you who think you are up to the task. As most of you know, GIGABYTE recently launched their latest Intel based H55/H57 motherboards, which feature support for the industry’s first GPU on CPU die Intel Core i3/i5 processors. Offering excellent HD movie playback with extremely low CPU utilization and even delivering decent playability for some of the latest 3D games, the new Core i3/i5 processors are pushing the performance boundaries for IGP graphic solutions. GIGABYTE would like to see if you can push those boundaries even further. That is why we have added some overclocking tools to our entire series of H55/H57 motherboards including easily adjustable IGP clock settings including MHz, high QPI ratios, memory dividers and high BCLK ability as well as easy manageability and sharing of your overclocking profiles.

sig11.jpgSo, here is the challenge. Using any GIGABYTE H55/H57 motherboard, submit to HWBOT your 3DMark Vantage performance score in March and the highest posted scorer at the end of the competition will get to take home a shiny new GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD7 motherboard. There is a second prize category as well for anyone submitting a score with HWBOT with an included picture of their system. A single winner will be randomly selected from the submissions (only those with platform picture) at the end of the competition to win a GA-P55A-UD7. Good luck everyone, now get busy breaking some records!

Good luck! I'm eager to see how high you guys can clock the IGP!

Slovenia tiborrr says:

Thanks, I'll pass. I'm really a dedicated 3DMark2001SE IGP grinder, but there are some platforms that just aren't worth the effort :P Wake me up when you start AMD IGP challenge. You know I'm always up for it! :)

United States Chuchnit says:

I'm seriously thinking about competing in this. God, I'm gonna spend more money on the ln2 than the hardware I'm pouring it on :P

dexterdude says:

OMG the compo I have been waiting for ^^ butt damm got not the moneys for the cooling of motherbord kinda fail :P

United States Gomeler says:




I'll wait till the middle of the month to see if I can eBay style snipe this thing :D

Belgium Massman says:

Not sure if LN2 will help a lot guys! I've tested the Clarkdale IGP clocking a while ago for Madshrimps and the difference in overclockability was surprisingly low. Maybe it was just my sample, though :-)

dexterdude says:

hmm thanks in advanced than i will try to get at least a gigabyte bord in time and if i have time ill try a dice rune just for the fun and looks nice and i am adic to the sound of boiling ice in a tube 8D

Belgium Massman says:

I would recommend everyone to learn about the architecture of the Intel GMA HD as well ... there are some hidden performance gates :)

dexterdude says:

ohw by how do you meen learning?

Belgium Massman says:

Just figure out how it works exactly; what relation exists between IGP and CPU, memory, memory controller etc.

It is Vantage, CPU score will help a little bit :D

Belgium Massman says:

Now you gave away the clue :D

dexterdude says:

whahah i just saw the last score the cpu is A real key and than mem thats inportaind ass wel them please lat my money be early i so wana join the COMPO :P
