With NVIDIA’s new second-generation Maxwell-based graphics cards out for a few weeks we were waiting for the insane overclocks and benchmarks scores and now we have a world record 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme score by a heavily overclocked GeForce GTX 980.
The Taiwan based manufacturing company has yet again caused a stir with its record breaking speed results. The G.SKILL memory set out to test the speed limits with the latest and highest performing Intel processors and in no time achieved the highest records. The G.SKILL memory started planning this right after the official release of the Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 Extreme processors.
A Finnish group of overclockers called “The Stilt” have scored a world record overclock using AMD’s newest Richland architecture-based A10-6800K APU and ASUS’s F2A85-V Pro motherboard. Back in June the same overclocking group managed to score 8000.48 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz applying 2.008 volts to the CPU. The new world record set by the same group is 8203.01 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz, multiplier set at 63x and susprisingly a lower voltage of 1.968 volts applied to the CPU.
