MSI X99 Motherboards Break 6 World Records

The MSI X99S XPOWER AC, one of MSI's new Intel X99 based OC motherboards, just obliterated the Cinebench R15 world record for the Intel Core i7 5960X processor by scoring a staggering 2314 points while all 8 cores were running at an amazing 5931.02 MHz clock speed, which is almost 200 MHz higher than any other X99 motherboard currently on the market. MSI's complete X99 line up is capable of breaking world records with the X99S SLI PLUS already breaking 5 different records. wPrime, SuperPi and PiFast were all taken with speeds up to 6354.9 MHz. It shows that the MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard is not only packed with an arsenal of features, it also packs plenty of power for heavy workstation tasks such as rendering.

seeing as the processor is just out and the embargo on reviews etc was JUST lifted, how much of an established world record was there already to break?

:twitch: most things can, these days? That pun has kinda run its course many moons ago lol


However, on topic, this 'broken record' means, as stated earlier by another guy, very little.


More information on high-end stable OC's for 24/7 usage is needed before anyone can get excited about world record breaking OC's that mean nothing in the scheme of things.


Still waiting for TPU to have its CPU review up........................... which may be sometime near Christmas it appears.....

What this mean ???

Delivering speeds up to 32Gb/s using Gen3 x4, Turbo M.2 is more than 5 times faster than a regular SATA III connection! Enjoy a blazing fast system boot up and insanely fast loading of applications and games with MSI motherboards.

NEXT GENERATION M.2
Turbo M.2 is the successor to M.2 10 Gb/s, offering 3 times more performance up to 32 Gb/s using Gen3 x4. M.2 is packed in a small form factor and is compatible with 3 different sizes to fit most storage solutions. All latest generation Intel® based MSI motherboards feature Turbo M.2 storage.

What only MSI had so fast M.2, ASUS and other manufacturers not?
That's huge advantage then for them IF THAT IS TRUE.
But I'm completely confused with all version and dimension and compatibility of
SATA Express and M.2.

M.2 slots can be connected to 2 or 4 PCI Express 2 or PCI Express 3 lanes.

The fastest M.2 is 4-lanes of PCI Express 3, providing up to 32Gb/s. MSI calls it "Turbo" while ASRock calls it's "Ultra" and Asus calls it out specifically (i.e. PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2).

WR BS as almost everything depends from CPU in this case ... all can say that their mobo is the best and we see that every couple of days from most manufacturers that actually count on the enthusiast market. They could mention that MSI boards have problems with memory overclocking what was even pointed out in TPU review.

I can't wait for the response from Asus and Gigabyte.

ALL BOARDS have some issues with memory OC right now, as I mentioned in my review, so it's not something to hold against MSI, just something you need to be aware of if you plan on buying memory rated higher than 2666 MHz. ASUS gets an exclusion form being included in this comment, but only because it has special socket that seems to help with memory OC in a big way (and I believe this is why ASUS and Corsair are "partnered" for high-end Dominator Platinums). I am currently testing revised BIOSes for most boards I have on hand here, time will tell if memory OC is better than it was before, MSI has 2666 divider working for some time while others did not.


No Futuremark benchmark records because SystemInfo isn't updated for this platform yet. Been a bug pain for me because this causes the benches to take longer to complete, but perhaps Futuremark just released new version... as soon as my current run of PCMark8 finishes. :P

I'm keen on X99 but its so dam expensive, having second thoughts, even though I have spent that kind of money before....a few times actually. I almost bought yesterday then my local store sold out of all X99 boards except 1, and theres only one kit of DDR4 memory left out of 12 different kits. Still plenty of CPUs though...... they're getting more stock next week, I'm thinking to just get 4790K to replace the 4770K because I don't use a lot of mutli threaded software, and be done with it but then I heard the next Intel HEDT CPU is supposed to be compatible with this socket.

Cadaveca, do you know anything about Intels next HEDT CPUs??
