Intel Core i9 7980XE Update: Splave (US) and K|ngp|n (US) Take Down 7 World Records

The 18-core / 36-thread Intel Core i9 7980XE processor has only been with us for just under 24 hours and already we’ve seen plenty of World Records and Global First Places tumble. After looking at some scores from rsaninno (Italy), der8auer (Germany) and Alex@ro (Romania), today we turn our attention to the work of two mighty American overclockers, Splave and K|ngp|n.

So far Splave (US) has managed to pull of three World Records using the new Core i9 7980XE chip. In the Intel XTU benchmark we find him making a new World Record score of 5,757 marks with 18-core CPU pushed to 5,800MHz (+123.08%). In wPrime 32M we find him with the fastest run ever, completing the benchmark in just 1sec 60ms. In the HWBOT x265 1080p benchmark Splave also reigns supreme currently with a score of 197.8 fps.

In terms of Global First Places Splave is also weighing in with some heavy scores. He is now credited with the fastest ever 18-core run in wPrime 1024 with a run in just 25sec 568ms. In Cinebench R11.5 he made a Global First Place score of 56.73 points, while in Cinebench R15 he has the fastest 18-core score with a run of 5,698 cb points. In GPUPI for CPU 1B he is fastest with a run of 1min 1sec 348ms while in HWBOT x265 4K, he has a score of 46.35 fps.

Master multi-GPU pusher K|ngp|n (US) has also been taking advantage to the incredible performance of the new Core i9 7980XE to break some popular 3DMark benchmark World Records. In 3DMark Fire Strike he the new World Record stands at 58,024 marks with Vince using 4x GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards clocked at 2,354MHz (+59.05%) / 1,595MHz (+15.92%) and a Core i9 7980XE pushed to 5,720MHz (+120%). Using the same rig he made a score in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme where he now holds the World Record with a score of 49,352 marks, while in 3Dmark Fire Strike Ultra he holds sway with a score of 31,946 marks. Finally, in 3DMark Time Spy he has the World Record with a score of 37,596 marks.
