ROG Motherboards Claim Four More World Performance Records

ASUS performance brand ROG continues to empower overclocking champions worldwide. On motherboards designed for Intel and AMD processors, multiple fresh records have been clocked in CPU frequencies, SuperPi 32M, and wPrime 32M/1024M, proving ROG is at the forefront of delivering highly tunable and extra-stable motherboards.

Best platform for dedicated overclockers and new records
The superior quality of ROG boards serves as a launching point for their performance mastery. Smart engineering, the finest components, and durable materials all contribute to motherboards that can handle the duress of dedicated overclocking experimentation. Built to sustain peak performance at all times, ROG motherboard offerings further ship with numerous overclocking and tuning-focused features, making them the most favored destination for enthusiasts aiming to push the PC performance envelope. The emphasis on catering to the overclocking community extends across product ranges, and covers Intel and AMD-based models.


Four new global records set
ROG Maximus V Extreme has become a regular record-breaker since its release, this time marking a new SuperPi 32M high at the ROG Camp in Berlin. Overseen by ROG master overclocker Andre Yang, the new record stands at 4'42.656", a considerable gain compared to the previous high of 4'43". An Intel Core i7-3770K was used in attaining this record.

An ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z and an AMD FX-8350 also commanded by Andre cracked existing CPU-Z processor frequency records by pushing the CPU to an impressive 8670.22 MHz.

At the same time, Hong Kong-based overclocker John Lam of HKEPC utilized the ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z to chalk up two world records in wPrime. For the 32M benchmark, he managed 4.532", while in 1024M his new global record is 143.766". John used an AMD FX-8350 processor in setting both records.

Id like to see the chip(s) used to break that and drop it in another board like that (say for Intel, OC Formula or MPower) and see if it still hits that record...

These are getting a little feisty.

Scores and clocks will be completely different.

Times will...sure, but I was more talking max frequency... and its not like times will be THAT different.

Boards of that class like I mentioned have all the power bits and bios options needed to get there.. I almost feel that, at least frquency records, can be done on any other top notch board. Again times will vary by board of course.

Not worried about power and such. There are a ton of tertiary timings that the user has no control over. Those make a massive difference in clock speed and performance. These records we are looking at likely have a custom BIOS. One made for the wprime records and the others for the max clocks.

There are tons(tertiary) on the OC F as well and I believe the Mpower has tertiary too... but on these platforms, memory is completely sep from the corespeed for the most part in that it can easily be taken out of the equation at such high speeds so you can up the limited bclk so not sure that even matters in this context (again, talking max frequency NOT performance).

I have had tertiary timings on my CH3 which came out how many years ago? That's not the point there is a lot more that goes into the AMD board BIOS than Intel ones.

There is? :confused:

i'll have to take your word for it I guess.

These new boards feature options to enable those "better tertiary timings".

Gigabbyte does as well on many BIOSes, called "Legacy Benchmark Enhancement".

I don't think OEMs see any real value in holding back tweaks like those any more. the cost of LN2 cooling is what keep users from pushing too far, anyway, so it's not as big of a deal as it was in the past. These guys setting records are all recruited by OEMs expressly for this purpose, and they are very open about doing that now. I see no foul if they did use a custom BIOS...these sorts of PC uses really aren't intended for most people, and those that want to get into it, now, can. I have no issue with the OC scene as it is right now, other than some people with-holding tweaks.

Ahh ha! Now we are getting somewhere... EVGA has this too (again on Intel).

But but but, those boards don't have that mAd TyTe ROG logo! :roll:

Intel provides a very good base BIOS to manufacturers to use on their boards. AMD is more of hey here is a chipset figure it out.

Only one way to find out if the user drops another baord in.
