    Another day, another world record broken. K|ngp|n, well known for his LN2 cooling projects and many previous world records, has become the first man to pass the 6GHz barrier with dual Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 processors (3.2GHz) and Intel Skulltrail enthusiast gaming platform. Who would of guessed that 8 cores can run at this insane speed? Here are two new wPrime world records as well, 32MB @ 3.450s and 1024M @ 1m 52s respectively. More results here.

    amazing, wonder what he is going to do with the 8 core processors, and what kind of performance we could get out of that.

    Wow he must get about .... 2 fps on the cpu test in 3dmark :eek: :roll: I wonder how fast he could encode and decode etc :p

    It's capped on 2fps :) I even get 2fps for a fraction of a second, but he might get close to 2fps avarage on the first test :twitch:

    It's not capped at 2fps. I get 2.44 in the first test, and 3.6 in the second test.

    Cool!

    I see he's warming up for 3DMark Vantage. Skulltrail would be THE top scorer's platform for quite some time since the score scales with +4 cores and there is no alternative atm that performs as good as Skulltrail for 3DMark Vantage benching.

    forget all these benchmark scores - i want REALWORLD benchmarks - try running different games on it like COD4 or Crysis even. unless you have this pc just so u can boot it up in the morning & run the same god damn benchmarks from dawn till dusk just so u "feel good" that you had a stupid amount of time/money to invest getting your CPU(s) to 6Ghz+.....

    sometimes theres more to hardware then just super Pi runs

    agreed - there is a limit to how fast you NEED to go.

    Still impressive tho and really shows the potential of the hardware.

    I see his Prime scores were run at 5708MHz and 5590MHz respectively.
    Must have been a little flakey at 6006MHz since he didn't use that speed to run the tests. (Yet).

    Regardless, that's really impressive.

    Hell Im impressed with this. I dont ever remember reading about AMD CPUs posting world record benchmarks, not saying they ever did. That truly is amazing. Id never need to go that fast but its nice to know you can get close to 3.0ghz bump on both of those procs.

    That doesn't sound like techpowerup talk at all. You don't NEED a lot of things but i would definately WANT a 6ghz quad core. I suppose you don't NEED more than 640K ram :p

    More info would be great (like superpi and 3dmark06).

    This is kingpins website: http://overclockingpin.com/

    Nothing there yet. Hopefully he will post soon.

    Here is the link to his CPUZ scores: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=346139

    Notice that kingpin is only using 2x FBDIMM.

    Doh! He missed a trick... FBDIMM on skulltrail goes quad channel... meaning that he would get much higher scores if he populated the baord with 4 sticks not 2 sticks!

    I'd second that he must change that rig everytime he doesn't get the desired oc :eek:

    There's no such water cooling that actually runs through the core except in the new IBM supercomputer. And I've never heard of liquid helium, at least being used for this purpose.

    Actually i think AMD Broke the WR for 3dmark, back in 2005, with an FX57


    EDIT: crap, didnt quote who i wanted to, oh well.
