Germany’s top overclocker Dancop appears to have been taking some time off during these summer months, spending less time in his Overclocking den securing scores that keep him in the position as World No.1. Having lost top spot to rival Xtreme Addict (Poland) just a week or so ago, he returned to the fray last weekend to post some outstanding single GPU scores in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme and 3DMark Time Spy benchmarks. The points yielded from the two submissions in fact proved to be sufficient to propel him back into first place in the HWBOT rankings. Let’s take a quick look at the two submissions.
The fastest ever run in the 3Dmark Fire Strike Extreme benchmark using a single GPU now stands at 18,984 marks. This beats the next best score of 18,778 marks posted by k|ngp|n (US) back in March of this year using a GTX 1080 Ti card.
The new Global First Place score for a single GPU was achieved with Dancop harnessing all the performance of a volt-modded Nvidia GeForce Titan Xp card which he summarily pushed to 2,404.5MHz (+62.47%) with graphics memory also overclocked at 1,624MHz (+13.90%). Very impressive indeed. Other rig details include an Intel Core i9 7900X 'Skylake-X’ processor which was pushed to a pretty incredible 5,904MHz (+78.91%). This was mounted on an ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard accompanied by a DDR4 G.SKILL Trident Z kit configured at 1,800MHz (12-11-11-28-1T). Other details include a Seasonic 1200 watt Prime Platinum PSU.
In the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark the same rig at identical settings was used to post a score of 14,006 marks, again a Global First Place score for a single GPU. This is ahead of Vivi (South Africa) who used a GTX 1080 Ti to score 13,780 marks just a day ago.
These two submissions from Dancop mean that he now has a points tally of 2,953.5 in the HWBOT Rankings, just a few points ahead of Xtreme Addict (Poland) who has 2,875.2 points. You can check out the submissions from Dancop in the links above as well as here on his profile page.
