Last weekend saw another stage of the Pro OC 2016 contest on OC-ESPORTS come to a close. Once again World No.1 Dancop put in a dominant display to win his second stage of Round 3, a win that puts him in pole position for Round 3 and the 2016 championship as a whole.
Stage 4 of Round 3 was about 3D benching with focus on getting the highest score possible in the 3DMark Vantage (Performance) benchmark from Futuremark, a classic that hails from back in 2008. Being a GPU-centric benchmark, this stage saw Nvidia’s Titan X Pascal card become a very influential factor on how far up the leaderboard an overclocker can go.
Dancop has been thrashing GPU records with Titan X cards for several weeks now and his experience no doubt was a factor as he made a score of 103,308 marks, a global 1st place for any single GPU in 3DMark Vantage (Performance).
The score was achieved with a his Pascal GP102 chip tuned to 2,442.5MHz, a whopping +72.37% beyond stock settings. The Titan X card was joined by a Core i7 6950X processor clocked at 5,255.92MHz (+75.20%). Other key components in his rig include a G.SKILL Trident Z memory kit clocked at 1,752MHz (CL11.0 11-11-28 1T) and an ASUS Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard.
Second and third place finishers also involved Titan X Pascal cards which certainly seemed to make the contest slightly lop-sided. Switzerland’s raccoon managed to edge out World No.2 Xtreme Addict with a score of 99,313 marks compared to the Pole’s 96,924 marks.
In terms of Round 3, it means that Dancop now has a commanding lead at the top of the table with a total of 38 points. Xtreme Addict is right behind on 33 points while raccoon now sits in third place with 29 points.
