Matose Wins Gigabyte GO OC 2010
[i]Matose from Romania has been crowned winner of the Gigabyte GO OC 2010 championships, at the world finals held in Taipei. The final scoreboard reveals that although Matose has not held too many top spots in individual benchmarks, his aggregate score has sailed him through to the top, thanks to maintaining a level of consistency with all the tests, importantly, not failing in any of the tests. He was trailed, rather closely at some points of the event, by stephenyeong from Hong Kong and Speedtime.wing from China (PRC).
This year’s Gigabyte GO OC event covered 33 countries over five regions: North America, Europe, Asia & Africa, and [Greater] China. Top performers of each region got a chance to participate at the world finals held today. Today’s event included a 4.5 hour run of overclockers using the same basic equipment and drivers, to use their skills and score the highest in a cocktail of CPU-intensive benchmarks. Their highest score among each tries affected their position on the scoreboard. The day’s run started with Matose gaining initial lead with an aggregate score of 68 points, later he slipped to 50 points as Speedtime.wing caught up (around 14:00 local). Matose was able to stabilize and gradually increase his aggregate. e-Killer had the highest Super Pi score, Matose for PiFast, Slamms for Maxxmem, stephenyeong and Mikeguava for wPrime 32m.[/i]
