ASUS has just announced that extreme overclocker safedisk set 15 global first place scores with the ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero coupled with the AMD Ryzen 5800X, 5900X, and 5950X. These were for the 8-core, 12-core, and 16-core scores.
Safedisk used Cinebench R15 and R20, Geekbench 3 and 4, and a range of processor-intensive benchmarks like GPUPI 1B, HWBot x265, wPrime 1024M for benchmarking. The extreme overclocker also managed to set a new landmark for the single-core Geekbench4 world record.
He broke the 6 GHz barrier multiple times, including hitting 6075 MHz on all cores during the GPUPI 3.2 1B 16-core attempt. He managed to match it again while breaking the single-core record.
The overclocker complemented both the teamed power delivery circuit of ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero and the improved AMD Ryzen process.
