Intel Yorkfield goes on record-breaking rampage, again
The new 3DMark 06 record was set at 5.2 (13×400) GHz while the 3DMark 05 was set with the processor running at 5.440 (13×418) GHz! The motherboard that made these overclocks possible was the ASUS Maximus Formula, paired with Mushkin’s fastest Redline DDR2 running at 4-4-4-5 timings with a 4:5 divider. The graphics cards were of course his two trusty ASUS Radeon HD 2900 XTs. However these two records was set after the SuperPi 1M record. Kinc decided to use this benchmark a bit as a stability test and after seeing how well Penryn performed in SuperPi at IDF, it seems quite feasible that he could break that record as well, and so he did.
