A couple of weeks ago saw the conclusion of Round 2 of the Road to Pro series here on OC-ESPORTS, the most comprehensive annual Overclocking series in existence. In this roundup article we focus on all the action from Challenger Divisions IV, V and VI which are centered exclusively around pushing hardware manufactured by AMD. Let’s take a look at the winners, the scores and the hardware used in Round 2 of the Road To Pro 2017.
orion24 (France) Wins Challenger Division IV, Round 2
For the first time, Division IV of the Road to Pro Round 2 involves the latest and greatest AMD Ryzen processor platform. Any AMD Ryzen 7-series processors as well as previous generation FX-Series processors are allowed, along with any GPUs from the AMD Radeon series. At the top of the table in Round 2 we find Frenchman orion24 with 488.1 points. Let’s have a look at all the action and see how it is that he came out on top.
Here are the stages that were devised for Round 2 of Division IV:
Division IV: Round 2 Stages
- Stage 1: SuperPI 32M
- Stage 2: Cinebench R15
- Stage 3: 3DMark Vantage Performance
- Stage 4: Geekbench 4 Single Core
- Stage 5: 3DMark Time Spy
Stage 1: SuperPI 32M
We kick off in Stage 1 with a test centered on the ultimate classic CPU and memory benchmark, SuperPi 32M. Straight away we can see that orion24 means business, taking a the win with a SuperPi 32M run of 6min 54sec 960ms, quite a good bit ahead of his nearest competitor FlanK3r from the Czech republic with a run in 7min 7sec 51ms. Orion24 used an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X pushed way out to 5,287MHz (+55.50%) using an ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero motherboard. In terms of system memory (a crucial element in any winning run with SuperPi 32M) his DDR4 kit was configured at 1,375.7MHz (11-10-10-22).
