We kick off today’s submission roundup with yet another exceptional display from the king of multi-GPU overclocking, the one only k|ngp|n (US). Returning to familiar territory, Vince managed to push the World Record for 3DMark Time Spy even further, this time hitting a score of 35,422 marks. How was it done? With no less than 4x Nvidia GeForce 1080 Ti cards, each pushed to an immaculate frequency of 2,300MHz , a whopping +55.41% beyond stock GPU frequency. Graphics memory was also pushed 1,583MHz (+15.04%) while the CPU used was a 16-core Intel Core i9 7960X clocked at 5.6GHz. Not a bad rig you have there Vince.
Another American mover and shaker, Splave (US) has also been busy with the latest (and unreleased) Core-X series CPUs from Intel. He pushed a Core i9 7960X to 5,739 MHz (an amazing +104.96% beyond stock) to make a 16-core Global First Placed score of 28sec 31ms in wPrime 1024M, ousting the previous best of 28sec 720ms from Chi-Kui Lam (Hong Kong). Using the same rig he also attacked the HWBOT x265 4K benchmark with a GFP score of 43.29 fps, this time with the 16-core chip configured at 5,629MHz (+101.04). All scores were made with the potent ASRock x299 OC Formula motherboard.
Turning his attention to the 10-core Intel Core i9 7900X, we find a few more Global First Places. In the wPrime 1024M benchmark he managed a run in just 42sec 596ms with the deca-core chip pushed to 5,945MHz (+80.15%). With the Core i9 7900X tuned slightly lighter to 5,796MHz (+74.82%) he also made a score of 121.84 fps in the HWBOT x265 1080 benchmark. In the same benchmark using the 4K test he managed a GFP score of 28.3 fps.
Most of the above scores from Splave move him past previous Global First Place scores from Sofos1990 (Greece), who has also been busy with Core i9 7960X and 7900X CPUs. However, in the six-core Core i7 7800X stakes, he laid down a new marker just a day ago. Sofos pushed his 7800X to 5,900MHz (+68.57%) to make a score of 73.09 fps in the HWBOT x265 1080 benchmark using a GIGABYTE X299 SOC Champion board.
