SuperPi 1M under 8 seconds

Wolfdale showing huge promise

| Posted: Jan 30, 2008 11:18 pm

Another excellent achievement has just been made in the SuperPi world with a german overclocker coming forward with evidence that he's managed to bring a 1M Pi run down to less than 8 seconds using a new wolfdale based Core 2 Duo E8500 processor.

 

 

Not only did he manage an insanely high FSB of 609MHz on his trusty modified ASUS P5K motherboard, but the processor was pushed to a speed not too far off the 6GHz mark.

 

You can find out more info about his achievement over at Nordic Hardware.
