Back in July of this year Xtreme Addict managed to live out his ultimate dream, edging past Dancop in the rankings to take the mantle of the World’s No.1 overclocker on HWBOT. It was really great to see as Dancop replied with a few sandbagged scores and we then treated a real battle on at the top of the table – not something that tends to happen too often. Dancop eventually regained his position at the top of the table, largely helped by his acquisition of a few Nvidia Titan X cards – a big help seeing as it is the best performing consumer GPU on the market today.
This week we have seen a true revival of that battle with Xtreme Addict putting in some great work to once again climb to the summit of the HWBOT World Rankings. The really interesting thing is however, he managed to do it without using an Nvidia Titan X Pascal card.
You could argue that the Polish master’s ascent to the top of the rankings kicked off when he paid a visit to the ASUS OC Summit meet up in Moscow last week. Running throughout the week it culminated in XA making a total of five benchmark submissions on HWBOT, each of which resulted a Global 1st Place Ranking. In one major session he claimed the top 4x CPU rankings for Cinebench R15, Cinebench R11.5, Geekbench3 Multi-core, GPUPI for CPU -1B and wPrime – 1024M.
XA didn’t give up there however, as of two days ago he managed to use a GTX 1080 to take down the World Record for 3DMark05 with a score of 85,525 marks (beating his bench partner Smoke in the process). The same setup also brought home an Aquamark score of 635,931 marks… yet another Global 1st Place ranking.
On the same day he also managed to break the World Record in 3DMark03 with a score of 327,155 marks using a pair of GTX card 1080 cards. Using the same rig he then followed up with a World Record score of 10,770.17 DX11 Marks in Unigine Heaven Xtreme.
Wow. Insane stuff. What a week XA has had. I feel exhausted just writing about it. Huge respect to a worthy World No.1.
