Just a few days ago we brought you news of Romanian overclocker Alex@ro’s exploits on GPUPI for CPU 1B, setting a new Global 1st Place for quad-core CPUs with a run in just 3min 56sec 825ms. Today we have a new Global 1st Place submission with Zwitterion making a run fractionally faster run to steal the crown.
The Frenchman’s run of 3min 56sec 82ms is just a snip faster than the previous record, and was made using a Skylake i7 6700K clocked at a very handy 6,630MHz which is a healthy +65.75% beyond stock. This is a marginally higher overclock than Alex@ro’s 6,620MHz (+65.50%) using the same chip. The memory timings will also have played a crucial part with the Zwitterion using a Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 kit pushed nicely to 3,618MHz (CL12-18-18-28 1T). Other rig details include an ASUS Maximus VIII Gene motherboard, an Nvidia GT 610 card and a Corsair 860 watt PSU.
The Global 1st Place submission earned Zwitterion, the French No.2 and Extreme League No.3 a few additional points, taking 107.0 points for the x4 CPU ranking and 18.8 points for the i7 6700K ranking.
