Intel’s E8600 breaks SuperPi 1MB record, again
TaPaKah used an Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 overclocked to 6376MHz, almost 200MHz lower than the previous record. A bit surprisingly, he also had a lower system bus; 637.6 vs. 688.9MHz. What makes TaPaKaH’s achievement even more amazing is that his score is with both cores enabled, duck had only one core enabled.
He had a much higher memory frequency though, and that may very well be what tipped the scales. His Kingston HyperX 14400 DDR3 modules were working at 956MHz, while duck’s TeamXtreem 9600 DDR3 modules were only running with 1:1 divider, I.e. 688 MHz. duck did have tighter timings, but overall we would estimate that the higher frequency made up for that.
