New SuperPi 32M world record thanks to Intel's 6-core i7

Inevitable we'd see it overshadow all else

| Tweaking & Overclocking News | Posted: Apr 6, 2010 11:08 am

We all knew it wouldn't be long before Intel's latest top dog processor, the hexa-core powered Core i7-980X would start to rise above all else in the benchmark realm.

 

Sure enough, the CPU-sucking SuperPi tool has been spun up faster than anything recorded before with one of these processors by world reknowned overclocker Jon "Elmor" Sandstrom. He dished up a world record 32M result of 5 mins and 41.48 seconds, quicker by 0.094 seconds than a previous record that was also achieved using this hexa-core monster of a processor.

The new world record result was accomplished thanks to a huge liquid nitrogen assisted overclock that allowed the CPU to operate at 6.431GHz for the test on GIGABYTEs yet to be released GA-X58A-UD9. This is a board we all want to know more about, but is tightly bounded by a media embargo for the time being.
