A few week ago we announced the official rules for the forthcoming G.SKILL OC World Cup 2017 contest. The contest will take place during Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan and will feature six of the world’s most feared and respected extreme overclockers. Get a load of this lineup; rsaninno (Italy), Dancop (Germany) RULE (Italy), Xtreme Addict (Poland) Alex@ro (Romania) and Splave (US).
In that post we announce three of the benchmarks that have been selected for contest, those were DDR4 Frequency, Geekbench3 Multi Core 6.5 GHz and 3DMark11 Physics 6.5 GHz. An additional 4th benchmark was also required, but just to make things a little more interesting, we decided to leave the final decision to the HWBOT community with a poll were you guys got to vote for which benchmark you preferred.
HWBOT members were asked to choose from the following three benchmarks; Cinebench R11.5 at 6.5GHz, Cinebench R15 at 6.5Ghz or Intel XTU at 6.5Ghz. After a few weeks on the from page we have the following results:
- - Cinebench R11.5 at 6.5GHz – 38 Votes (14.3%)
- - Cinebench R15 at 6.5Ghz – 137 Votes (51.5%)
- - Intel XTU at 6.5Ghz – 91 Votes (34.2%)
With more than half of all votes, Cinebench R15 at 6.5GHz will be the forth benchmark used at the G.SKILL World Cup 2017 contest. Don’t forget that this year the G.SKILL World Cup winner will also collect the additional accolade of being the HWBOT World Championship – Taipei Qualifier, which means he will have a place in the HWBOT World Championship at the end of the year.
