Gigabyte Crowns An Overclocking Champion For 2010

Romania Set The Pace

12:08:48 - Mihatoiu Costin Matel from Romania (Matose) set the pace. His wPrime time of 2.827 seconds gave him a clear lead over Juan Sebastian Campos of Colombia (e-Killer; 2.969) and Nikočević Dušan from Serbia (Perica_barii; 3.000). They were the only three who posted times at this point, leaving the scoreboard mostly blank. Shortly after, Yeong Tak Kin from Hong Kong (stephenyeong) slotted into second by virtue of his 2.828 wPrime score.

12:41:03 - As other competitors started posting times, it became clear that Matose was the man to beat. By the time he ranked first in two benchmarks (PiFast: 14.080 seconds and MaxxMEM: 23,653 MB/s), stephenyeong maintained his placing with a 14.130 PiFast value, while Jeremy Clifton from the United States (sno.Icn) placed third (PiFast: 15.160, wPrime: 2.906, and MaxxMEM: 21, 720).

13:45:26 - Matose maintained his first-place ranking even as he lost a crown to Shahriar Barani from Iran. Shahryar_NEO set the MaxxMEM bar at 26,576.

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

    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.
