The HWBOT No.1 ranked overclocker is back at it again, proving why he’s currently the best there is. Dancop (Germany) posted a bunch of scores at the back end of last week including new World Record scores in the 3DMark05 and 3DMark06 benchmarks and six new Global First Place scores, all the help of a very potent Core i7 8700K processor. Let’s take a look at what he’s been up to.
Last Friday Dancop pushed the World Record score in the 3DMark05 benchmark out to 92,210 marks. This was done with an ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card and its Pascal GPU pushed to 2,075MHz (+40.24%) on the GPU and 1,501MHz (+9.07%) on graphics memory. Being an older 3D benchmark however, CPU grunt is where most of the magic happens, which why he pushed his Core i7 8700K to a massive 7,204.01MHz, a pretty insane +94.70% beyond stock settings. The rig he used also featured an ASUS ROG Maximus X Apex board and G.SKILL Trident Z memory clocked at 2,094MHz (12-11-11-28). The same rig was used with the CPU clocked a slightly more conservative 7,125MHz (+92.59%) to push the all time World Record score in 3DMark06 to a 74,797 marks. Both new World Records stand just ahead of TeamAU in the rankings.
Generally speaking Dancop has one key rival in terms of 2D, six-core Coffee Lake overclocking – Italy’s rsannino. Last week we noted how the mercurial Italian had managed to break a bunch of 2D Global First Place six-core scores with Core i7 8700K chip. Last Friday Dancop made the ultimate retort, claiming six of them for himself. Let’s start with wPrime 32M where Dancop made a run in just 1min 0sec 632ms with his Core i7 8700K pushed to 6,975.83MHz (+88.54%). In the XTU benchmark he pushed his six-core Coffee Lake chip to 6,873.03MHz (+85.76%) to score 3,845 marks, the highest ever with a hexa-core chip. In Cinebench R11.5 he managed a new GFP score of 25.74 points while in Cinebench R15, the new six-core record now stands at 2,340 cb points. In Geekbench3 Multi-core he hit a new GFP score of 43,306 points while in GPUPI for CPU 1B he managed to get the CPU humming along at 7,100.8MHz (+91.91%) to make a run in just 2min 27sec 396ms, another GFP.
You can find all the scores and submissions in the links above, as well as here on the Dancop profile page. In terms of the rivalry between rsannino and Dancop, we find the Italian just behind Dancop in the HWBOT rankings with 2,807 points to his 3,163 points. In terms of competitions so far this year on OC-ESPORTS rankings however, rsannino is ahead by some distance. It will be very interesting to see these two Coffee Lake heavyweights take part in the Overclocking World Championship in few weeks time, just to see how they compete in a live OC contest.
