The fight at the top of the HWBOT World rankings continues this week with Dancop first regaining his position as number one thanks to a pair of Global 1st Place rankings, followed by a very strong return to action from Xtreme Addict who retook 1st place with a World Record submission worth 171 points. As of this moment in time XA is world No.1 by a margin of 121 points.
The new World Record Unigine Heaven (Xtreme) score of 10,669.65 was made with a pair of Galax GTX 1080 Hall of Fame cards with the Pascal GPUs tuned to 2,300MHz (+43.12%) and GDDR5 memory boosted to 1,350MHz. In terms of CPU XA used a Core i7 6700K running at 6.6HGz (+65%) – also not too shabby. Other hardware included 2x 8GB Galaxy B Die (4000C19), an ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme motherboard and CoolerMaster 1,500 watt Silent Pro PSU M2 and a whole load of Thermal Grizzly.
In terms of hardware points Xtreme Addict currently has 996.5 out a possible 1,000 which means that World Records (and to a lesser extent Global 1st Places) are the only way to push the boat out further. From Dancop’s point of view, a few World Records would also put him back at the top. Looks like we have a rare battle going on at the top of the league, not something that happens very often. I look forward to seeing how this develops.
