Gigabyte Crowns An Overclocking Champion For 2010

Difficulty Focusing On Overclocking

14:20:20 - A welcome diversion, at least for the legions of photographers at the event: four Chinese beauties clad only in bikini tops and skimpy shorts, took the stage to introduce themselves.

14:41:13 - Matose finally lost his PiFast crown. However, the Romanian was a picture of consistency. While none of his benchmarks (PiFast: 13.920, SuperPI: 32.609, wPrime: 2.827, and MaxxMEM: 26105) ranked the highest, his scores were still high enough for him to maintain the overall lead. Yu Meng Yao of China (speedtime.wing) inherited top-dog PiFast status with 13.910. e-Killer grabbed the SuperPI crown with a 6:27.750 score. stephenyeong and American Michael Graf (mikeguava) were tied for first in the wPrime race with 2.749, while Belgium’s Pieter-Jan Plaisier (Massman) held the MaxxMEM fort with 26,741. With the competition more than halfway done, more benchmarks appeared on the scoreboard.

    Checks are old. XD ATI's logo is still on it, AMD took over the logo too. Should be AMD radeon now.

    Why don't they ever show what I really want to see: Clock rate! It's an overclocking competition!

    Welcome to the world of multi-core computing.

    I personally could care less about the clock rate. All about the overall speed of the entire system as a whole for me.

    So you don't care if you hit 3.8 ghz or 4.0 with your cpu? You must not overclock.

    I rather have a 24/7 stable machine than having to stay awake pouring L2N 24/7 until the system dies from condensation. Fun to see the limits thoo!

    You seem to be looking at this from the wrong perspective. When reading a video card review are you more concerned with the GPU's clock rate or the Frames per second it delivers? Of course what matters most is the performance. 3.8 or 4.0 Ghz is really just an e-peen contest if you can't get ram your timings right.

    Excellent job Gigabyte! No sour grape losers. No complaints. Just a bunch of tough but happy competitors.
