Just a quick news flash to inform you we have updated the Haswell-E information threads in the forum. We updated the basic statistics on the Haswell-E overclocking hardware and updated the SuperPI 32M 4G Challenge.
On the statistics side of things, we see very little change apart from the GIGBAYTE X99-SOC Force moving up in the popularity charts. Interestingly we also see that the Core i7 5960X, the most expensive of all Haswell-E processors, is the most popular SKU for this X-series platform. This is in contrary to what we saw with Sandy Bridge-E and Ivy Bridge-E.
In the 4G low clock challenge two people entered a first score: Sskmercer from Australia and CL3P2O from the United States. The latter currently has the fastest result scoring 7 min 34.266 ms with the DDR4 memory clocked at DDR4-3000 CL12-13-14-15 2T in combination with the X99-SOC Force. Looking forward to the upcoming results!
On the BIOS side of things we updated each GIGABYTE X99 motherboard with two new BIOSes. One is the final stable version, the other a new beta. For more information you can check the threads below.
