New 3DMark 11 World Record
Futuremark® announced the winners of its latest overclocking contest, sponsored by MSI, Kingston, Enermax and Cougar. Singaporean overclocker Spyboy48 emerged with the best score that is now the official world record for 3DMark 11 Physics score.
The new record score, 19 090, set with an Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition processor and MSI X79A-GD65 motherboard is a great achievement in overclocking skill. At stock settings, a similar system would get a score of about 11 000, so Spyboy48 improved the CPU performance of his system by almost 75%.
