TweakTown breaks the HWBOT GPUPI record with 2 x 16-core Xeon CPUs

If you're aware of what the HWBOT GPUPI for CPU -1B world record is, well - we beat it. Our storage editor Jon Coulter smashed it by over two seconds, powered by some truly insane hardware.


Jon used an ASUS Z10PE D8 WS dual-CPU motherboard, 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2698 V3 processors (16 cores/32 threads each), 64GB of Crucial ECC DDR-2133 RAM, a Samsung M.2 500GB 850 EVO SSD, a 1200W PC Power & Cooling PSU and the Fractal Design Define XL R2 case. The CPUs were cooled by dual Cryorig H5 Universal CPU coolers, allowing them to be thrashed around to break the world record.


The current world record.


Jon's smashing of the world record.
