Road to Pro, Round 1: Gunslinger (US) Wins Pro OC Division

The Road to Pro contest series just came to the end of Round 1 a few days ago. The pinnacle of the series, in purely performance and hardware terms is the Pro OC Division. This due to the fact that it includes (almost) no restrictions regarding what hardware may be used. Overclockers with access to plenty of LN2, high-end GPUs and the most expensive CPUs and motherboards are invited to compete in a no-holds-barred contest where the fastest wins. Let?s take a look at all the scores, the submissions, the winners and the also-rans in this round up article.

Pro OC Division: Round 1 - Febuary 1st - March 31st 2017

Here are the benchmarks involved in Round 1 of the Road to Pro Pro OC Division:

  • Stage 1: wPrime 32M
  • Stage 2: SuperPi 32M
  • Stage 3: 3DMark03
  • Stage 4: HWBOT x265 4K
  • Stage 5: 3DMark Time Spy
  • Stage 1: wPrime - Stage 1 was all about pushing CPUs and tweaking memory, benching on the classic wPrime 32M benchmark. At the top of the table we find Splave from the US showing his talent with a wPrime 32M run of just 1sec 718ms. This score was done with an Intel Core i7 6950X pushed to 5,206MHz, a very impressive +73.53% beyond stock settings. In terms of memory Splave configured his G.SKILL Trident Z kit to 1,334MHz (19-18-18-44) using an ASRock X99M Killer motherboard.

    You can find the full roundup article for the Pro OC Division here on OC-ESPORTS.
