Intel’s Yorkfield breaks seven world records
According to a slide displayed during the live demo, he broke the highest quad-core frequency, the highest 3DMark 06 and 3DMark 05 CPU scores, as well as PCMark 2005 too. On stage, he broke the record for SuperPI 1M, which he achieved in eight seconds, followed by Aquamark 3 and Cinebench 10. He set scores of 273,000 for Aquamark 3 and over 20,000 for Cinebench 10. We spoke to Charles after the keynote and he said that he’s actually hit well over 23,000 in Cinebench 10 in the last few days. He also said that he hasn’t hit his chip’s maximum core speed yet.
