  1. You might be into the whole stability testing, but RMA processes tend to be troublesome.
  2. Sam and LGA 775 SPi efficiency - name a more iconic duo. It's obviously an outstanding result (congratulations!) and quite scary to think it's not even his strongest CPU. When I remember how impressive sub 7m 30s once was, it's kind of crazy we even consider this now. With perfect efficiency scaling 6,700 MHz would lead Sam to ~7m 0.5s. So even 6,700 MHz would likely not be enough, given efficiency tends not to scale 1:1 and it might even be necessary to ease some values on the memory side for DDR3-2144 @ 670 MHz FSB (5:8). However I don't know how much cherrypicking effort Sam has
  3. High frequency traders (if interested into the subject matter you might have a look into Flash Boys by Michael Lewis); although I'm a bit surprised they would choose i9-10980XEs. i9-9990XE or i9-9900K(S) might be superior depending on the use case. FPGAs are pretty popular now, too.
  4. Would have to lie to say I'm not surprised by the IC selection, but it's great to see more variety. Congratulations on opening the DDR4-6000 club and a remarkable result!
  5. Congratulations, awesome! Now we get a new DDR4 WR every day ... and I like it. 😀 To be honest I'm surprised about the low voltage used and would have expected 1.8V+. Obviously it wasn't necessary, but would that have been counterproductive?
  6. With the frequency of new DDR4 WRs (quite ambiguous^^) I guess we might see DDR4-6000 sooner than expected. Congratulations, very nice score!
  7. Wow, congratulations! Would have expected Samsung B-Dies as well, but just got the press release after I saw this as forum topic. According to it the used Micron E-Dies offer better temperature/voltage scaling with less hassle than other ICs ("plug & play experience" to quote OGS).
  8. Kudos to G.Skill for keeping these competitions alive with an even increased cash prize pool!
  9. Asus Maximus X Apex (UEFI 1301) + Core i7-8700K
  10. The kit was just part of a review aimed at mainly gamers for daily usage, so unfortunately not. But the kit is still here. So if I find some time for additional tests, I can add some results here.
  11. Only ambient usage here, but had the same G.Skill kit with SK Hynix H5AN8G8NCFR-TFC a few months ago. The kit was HCI-Memtest-stable e. g. @ 3866/16-20-20, 3600/15-19-19 and 3333/14-18-18 at 1.35 Volt if you care about scaling. I raised tRCD and tRP simultaneously, so maybe one can handle lower values.
  12. So you mean you don't want us to test if our antivirus software actually works, get rich in a 100 % secure Bitcoin casino, buy Viagra for the very best price and meet with all the ladies that are desperate to get to know us? How dare you, sour looser? 🖕
  13. For me it's interesting to see that Vince's run is faster for all finished batches after the first one with an advantage of up to 28 ms after batch 9 finished. From "Batch 19 finished" to "PI value output" however his system needs 114 ms, while Slinky is noticably faster with 98 ms. At first you might think that the higher-clocked 7980X with faster RAM outperformed the lower clocked 7960X with slower RAM in this phase of the benchmark in some way, but watching at the statistics segment it seems that some small hickup with Titan V #2 lead to the loss of the WR. Slinky's values are way more even
  14. It's a shame that the likely highest % overclock for any Intel CPU ever goes unnoticed for several days and is worth 2.0 hardware points and 6.1 hardware team power points. I still think a ranking/reward for OC in % would be appropriate to reward the effort and awesomeness and motivate people to push even harder. Anyway, kudos to WYTIWX. Fantastic result, very well done!
