Because of the ongoing global situation, ASUS was unable to host its traditional overclocking gathering this year, so instead a smaller session took place at the ASUS headquarters in Taiwan – with local overclockers Jon ‘Elmor’ Sandström and Pieter ‘Massman’ Plaisier working alongside internal ASUS experts. Using a liquid-helium setup, the group managed to shatter the Intel Core architecture frequency record, the single-core Geekbench 4 record, and took global first-place positions in 10-core categories for Geekbench 3, Cinebench R15, and wPrime 32M.
Throughout the testing period, ASUS also worked with pros both near and far who flexed their prowess in a variety of benchmarks. Overclocker ‘bianbao’ leveraged the combined power of G.Skill and Intel to hit a new DDR4-memory-overclocking-frequency record of 6666 MHz. Intel’s edge in gaming and graphical performance were shown off by both ‘rsannino’ and ‘Rauf’ who broke 3DMark records: ‘rsannino’ took the 3DMark06 overall world record, and ‘Rauf’ smashed the single-GPU score for version 11.

Showing the breadth of the platform, ‘keeph8n’ raked in a few records including Geekbench 4, Cinebench 2003 and GPUPI 3.2 100M. By far, the most accolades went to ‘safedisk’: four world records and seven global first place scores, including Cinebench R15, both HWBot x265 benchmarks, both wPrime scores, and both Super Pi records.
