Former HWBOT No.1 overclocker Xtreme Addict from Poland is back on the scene after a hiatus of a few months. In keeping with his reputation as one of the most feared and competitive component pushers on the planet, he announced his return with a World Record run in the Catzilla 720p benchmark. The new high score was made with a pair of GTX 1080 Ti cards and a flagship Skylake-X Core i9 CPU. Let’s take a quick look at the rig and configuration.
The new highest score in the Catzilla 720p benchmark now stands at exactly 115,609 marks. The rig pushed to its limits by XA was based around an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard fitted with an Intel Core i9 7980XE 'Skylake-X' chip clocked at a monstrous 5,700MHz - an incredible +119.23% beyond the chip’s stock settings. Most significantly however, the rig featured a pair of GALAX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Hall of Fame cards with the Pascal GP102 GPUs pushed to 2,148GHz, 45% beyond stock base frequency. GPU memory was pushed to 1,609MHz which is a decent 16.9% beyond stock. Other components include a GALAX B-die DDR4 kit configured at 1,899MHz (14-14-14-24).
The new Catzilla 720 World Record from Xtreme Addict eases past the previous best from Rauf (Sweden) who managed a score of 114,843 marks also using a pair of GTX 1080 Ti cards. The Word Record from XA earns him a few additional points which help to elevate him back into 3rd spot in the Global HWBOT rankings, just behind rsannino (Italy) and current No.1 Dancop (Germany).
