Here’s some news about two World Records that just got broken on HWBOT in the last 24 hours or so with HWBOT No.1 Dancop and legendary US overclocker steponz both having a busy weekend. Let’s take a quick look at the new World Record scores and the hardware used to break them.
In the 3DMark Vantage Performance benchmark we have a new World Record score of 139,523 marks. The ultimate bearded slackmeister made the score using a pair of EVGA GTX 1080 Ti KINGPIN Edition cards, each configured at a whopping 2,500MHz which is exactly 68.92% beyond stock settings. Graphics memory was also pushed to 1,639Mhz (+19.11%) while his G.SKILL DDR4 kits was configured at 1,866MHz (12-11-11-28). The rig was based around an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard which was fitted out with a Core i9 7960X pushed to a very impressive 5,698MHz which, by the way is +103.50% beyond stock. Nice work Bearded Hardware!
Having regained his status at the top of the HWBOT League Dancopo is back on song with a very nice World Record XTU score of 6,223 marks. This was made using the latest and greatest HEDT chip from Intel, the Core i9 7980XE. Dancop managed to tune this 18-core beast to a massive 5,603MHz which is a jaw dropping +115.52 beyond stock. Following the new rule that requires a screenshot of XTU and CPU-Z, we can tell you that the memory was configured at 2,000MHz using 12-11-11-28 timings using an ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard.
However, it’s not just with Skylake-X that Dancop is having fun, he’s also becoming mighty familiar with the new Coffee Lake platform. Using a Core i7 8700K processor and a pair of ROG GTX 1080 Ti STRIX OC Edition cards, he managed to bring down the Unigine Heaven benchmark with a blistering score of 12,029 DX marks. This was done with Pascal GPUs pushed to 2,265MHz (+53.04%) and graphics memory at 1,539MHz (+11.85%). The rig also included a G.SKILL Trident Z kit tuned to 2,100MHz (12-11-11-28), all mounted on an ASUS ROG Maximus X Apex board. Good work Daniel.
