We reported about a new world record SniperOz from TeamAU took for the single GPU in 3DMARK11. He was beaten by a handful of points by sofos1990 from Greece to up the stakes from an intense weekend of benching with the new driver. Sofos1990 writes that he switched from an Asus mainboard (17406 score link) to GIGABYTE (17886 score link) to be able to achieve the score saying GIGABYTE was faster in 3DMARK11.
Next time you’re benching 3D, give GIGABYTE Z77 boards a try. The “UP Series” of boards, like UP5 used in this score, sport a 60Amp MOSFET/CHOKE combination (called a power stage), capable of delivering the highest current (rated at 60A)and staying stable at big clocks. The Physics score is a multithreaded CPU test in 3DMARK11 in case you were not aware, so it relies heavily on CPU overclocking and performance. UP stands for Ultra Durable 5, you can read more about it over here!
Something tells me this battle between SniperOz of TeamAU and sofos1990 from HWBox Hellas OC Team isn't over yet! We’ll keep an eye on it.
Sofos1990 and his team mates also took the Unigine Heaven single card world record as well. Well done guys!
Gyrock-San from Japan is ranked second highest with the same board, GIGABYTE Z77X-UP5 TH, great scores all round!
