In Week 29 of 2016, we received 4152 benchmark results from 928 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 55% of the active community. They were responsible for 33% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
To accommodate more results we simplified the overview table to contain three types of information. The Most Valuable Submission, based on WR + Global + Hardware points, is separated in a CPU and GPU benchmark section. The top hardware points remain the same, but are not included in one table. In terms of scoring points, this week it's DrWeez's turn to join the infamous 742-club. In the 100+ point category, excluding the XTU 2xCPU results, we find Sofos1990 from Greece topping the Elite class scoring 174.3 points for his Global First Place in 3DMark03 1xGPU with a GeForce GTX 980 Ti at 2000/2200 MHz. In addition, Strong Island from United States scoring 138.1 for his Global First Place in Wprime 1024M 4xCPU with a sick 6522 MHz Core i7 6700K processor.
In the Hardware rankings bracket, we find Wizerty from France and Strong Island from United States scoring gold in their respective categories. Wizerty scores the top rank in the HWBOT Prime Core i7 3770K bracket. Strong Island chose a GPU benchmark to score more gold - his GeForce GTX 580 clocked at 1450/1275 MHz scores number one in 3DMark06. Congratulations to everyone making the table this week!
The overclocking results submitted during Week 29 generated in total 230 World Record Points, 5146.8 Global Points, and 6929.5 Hardware Points. The distribution per League is as follows: 13% for Elite, 35% for Extreme, 6% for Apprentice, 20% for Enthusiast, 10% for Novice, and 23% for Rookie. The representation of the active community is as follows: 3% Elite, 9% Extreme, 3% Apprentice, 19% Enthusiast, 12% Novice, and 55% Rookie.
