Argentina’s No.1 Elite overclocker nacho_arroyo made submission last Friday that catapulted him to the top of the 3DMark06 2x GPU world rankings with a score of 62,609 marks, a new Global 1st Place. The score narrowly edges out Russia’s Smoke who had been in possession of the 1st place ranking since early February of this year with a score of 62,577 marks.
Nacho_arroyo’s submission was made with a pair of GTX 980 Ti cards tuned to perfection under the influence of LN2. GPU clocks were pushed to 1,366MHz which is +27.06% beyond stock, while memory frequency was pushed to 2,100MHz (+19.79%). These settings indicate a tactically different approach from nacho_arroyo compared to Smoke who had his cards configured with higher GPU clocks and lower memory clocks; 1,480MHz (+37.55%) and 1,950MHz (+11.24%).
Other components used by nacho_arroyo include an i7 6700K clocked at 6,403.8MHz, an ASUS Maximus VII Gene motherboard, a HyperX DDR4 Predator kit clocked at 3,576.8MHz, plus a HyperX Savage SSD and a Seasonic Platinum 1200 Watt power supply. The new Global 1st Place submission means that nacho_arroyo earned 75.2 points for the 2x GPU ranking and 5.2 points for the GTX 980 Ti card.
