In Week 32 of 2017, we received 3875 benchmark results from 844 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 58% of the active community. They were responsible for 36% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
Last week was pretty exciting with the launch of the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 16-core CPU and the unveiling of performance of Intels Core i9-7960X overclocked. A number of select overclockers were able to pre-test the capabilities of these processors and as a result we saw a number of World Records and Global First Places fall. First up is Hicookie from Taiwan with a World Record in the HWBOT X265 1080P benchmark. Hicookie scores 168.44 FPS with a Core i9 7960X at 5351 MHz and surpassed a 4x Xeon E7 8867 V3 system in the process. Next up is Splave from United States with a World Record in the Unigine Heaven Xtreme preset. Splave scores 11736.45 marks with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at 2550/1500 MHz and a 7.1 GHz Core i7-7740X processor. Third mention of the week is $@39@ from Greece with a Hardware First Place in the GeForce GTX 580 3DMark01 category. The Greek scored 194751 marks combining a Core i7-7700K at 7 GHz with the graphics card at 1300/1200 MHz.
Now we arrive at two entries from the non-extreme cooling classes. First up is Sonofatech from the Unites States with a Global First Place in the 88xCPU category and overall silver in Cinebench R15. Following the 5000 points by the Core i9-7960X processor, he submitted 9015 cb with no less than 4 Intel Xeon E7 8880 V4 processors. That's 176 threads of power. But during the week he was surpassed by TimmyTechTV who benchmarked a quad Xeon E7 8890 V4 system featuring 96 CPU cores and 192 threads. With the system TimmyTechTV blew the Cinebench R15 World Record out of the water with a score of 9588 cb.Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
