Rookie Rumble #45: June 10th to July 1st, 2017
First a quick overview of what the Rookie Rumble contest series is all about. The idea is to give Rookie, Novice and Apprentice-class HWBOT members a place where they can compete against each other on a level playing field. For this reason Enthusiast, Extreme and Elite Overclockers are not eligible to compete. Round #45 of the contest was set up with three stages featuring the following benchmarks; Intel XTU, GPUPI for CPU 1B and SuperPi 1M. Let;s go ahead and look at the stages in isolation.
Stage 1: Intel XTU
The Round concluded with AmikomOC at the top of the table, posting a score of 470.75 pps per core (1,883 marks). This was done using a Kaby Lake Core i7 7700K pushed to 5,320MHz, a very decent +26.67% beyond stock settings. Other notable rig details include an ASUS ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard.
