Greek overlocker Sofos1990 has been a very busy chap in the last week or so, claiming a Global 1st Place ranking for a 4x CPU run in GPUPI for CPU 1B, a World Record score for PiFast (twice) and also the World Record score for SuperPi 32M. You could definitely say this guy is in a rich vein of form.
Last week we noted how Greece’s No.1 Overclocker had managed to nail his the World Record for the fastest ever PiFast run hitting a score of 9sec 170ms using a very handy i7 6700K processor clocked at 6,850MHz which is an incredible +71.25% beyond stock settings. Today he just went one better. Or perhaps I should say 10 milliseconds better as he submitted a new World Record breaking score of 9sec 160ms with Sofos1990 managing to squeeze an additional 25MHz out of his Skylake chip, pushing it to 6,875MHz (+71.88%).
Sofos will be pleased with this run which keeps World No.1 Dancop at bay for the time being at least. In fact Dancop did actually manage to equal the original 9sec 170ms record from last week. It will be interesting to see if that extra 10 milliseconds can help keep the World Record in Greek hands for the near future.
Let’s not forget also that with a run of just 4min 25sec and 578ms Sofos1990 is currently the holder of the SuperPi 32M World Record, ousting previous record holder, who is non-other than Dancop, by a margin of 156ms. The score was made using the same i7 6700K pushed to 6,834MHz, a solid +70.85% beyond stock settings. Other notable hardware includes a GIGABYTE Z170X-OC Force LN2 motherboard and a G.SKILL Trident Z DD4 memory kit (3600 C17).
Will we see a response from Dancop in the coming days? It’s very possible that we will. In the meantime however the standing ovation belongs to the Greeks. Congrats to Sofos1990! You can check out his World Record score for Super Pi 32M here as well as his World Record Pifast submission here.
