After a comparatively quiet few months Germany’s Dancop has awoken to the smell of LN2 smoke and has pushed his way back to the top of the HWBOT League. His recent work with the latest Coffee Lake Core i7 8700K has so far reaped him four Global First Place scores, but first, let’s take a look at a new World Record in the 3DMark11 Performance benchmark.
Using a pair of NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti cards Dancop submitted a new World Record score of 58,507 marks. The cards in question were ROG STRIX OC Edition cards, each of which were pushed under LN2 to a pretty incredible 2,455MHz on the GPU which is +65.88% beyond stock settings. Graphics memory was also boosted to 1,552MHz (+12.83%) . The CPU used was a 12-core Skylake-X Core i9 7920X which was pushed to a very impressive 5,644.62MHz, no less than +94.64%. His motherboard of choice for this session was an ROG Rampage VI Apex with 32M of G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 memory configured at 2,016MHz (12-11-11-28).
The new 3DMark11 Performance World Record beats the previous best from slamms (Russia) who made a score of 58,179 marks back in May of last year using 4x GTX 980 Ti cards. In terms of dual GPUs, rsaninno is closest with a score of 57,983 marks about a month ago, also with two GTX 1080 Ti cards.
It seems also that Dancop has now acquired a decent Coffee Lake architecture chip. Pushing a hexa-core Intel Core i7 8700K processor he set a bunch of new Global First place records. The fastest ever six-core score in XTU now stands at 3,723 marks thanks to run with the 8700K chip pushed to 6,700MHz (+81.08%). The rig featured a G.SKILL Trident Z kit tuned at 2,001MHz (12-12-12-28) using an ROG Maximus X Apex board. The same rig was used to push the six-core GFP record for Cinebench R11.5 to 25.29 points. In Cinebench R15 he made a GFP score of 2,327 points. In Geekbench 3 he broke the six-core highest multi-core score with a score of 42,766 points. This was made with the Core i7 8700K pushed to 6,921.18MHz (+87.06%), the highest clock of the session.
All of the above means that Dancop now sits at the top of the HWBOT League rankings with a Total score of 3,094.3 points. This is just ahead of rsannino (Italy) 2895.9 points. You can find all the submissions and scores from Dancop in the links above as well as here on his profile page.
