In Week 46 of 2017, we received 3881 benchmark results from 1052 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 60% of the active community. They were responsible for 40% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
During Week 46 of 2017, five overclockers made the leaderboard with a golden cup. It's almost a tradition we kick off the weekly global cup overview with the current leader of the Overclockers league, Dancop from Germany. His Global First Place in the XTU 6xCPU category scores him not only a golden cup, but also over 200 points. The new top score of 3845 marks is achieved with an Intel Core i7-8700K processor clocked at 6873 MHz. Next up is another regular of this news series. K|ngp|n from the United States is the first to break 15,000 marks with a single GPU in 3DMark Time Spy. The powerful system is powered by an Intel Core i9-7980XE processor clocked at 5630 MHz and paired with the top model of the NVIDIA GeForce series; the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The GPU is clocked to 2708 MHz and the graphics card memory is clocked up to 1658 MHz. Another regular face of the MVS news articles is Hideo from Japan. He achieved a Global First Place in the Aquamark 1xGPU benchmark with a GeForce GTX 980 Ti and a near-7GHz (!) Core i7-8700K. Sticking to the Extreme League, our next golden cup winner is Traktor from Russia. He achieved a new best score in the 3DMark11 Performance 2x Radeon HD 7970 category. The system specifications include a pair of water cooled HD 7970 Graphics cards clocked at 1244/1691 MHz and an Intel Core i9-7900X processor clocked at 5GHz. Last but not least we have another Germany overclocking making this table this week: g_trud. He achieved a Hardware First Place in the 3DMark05 1x Radeon HD 3870 GDDR4 category. The score of 38540 marks was achieved with a dry ice cooled Core i7-7700K at 6GHz and a dry ice cooled graphics card at 1229/1296 MHz. Congratulations everyone!
