GIGABYTE AORUS X299 Motherboards Top 7.5GHz and Smash 4 World Records

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., continues to solidify its position as the top enthusiast hardware manufacturer in the world. Last week GIGABYTE hosted an X299 OC gathering which broke numerous launch day world records on the latest Intel® X299 platform.

With overclockers from around the world, led by the Senior GIGABYTE overclocker HiCookie, this team of 5 gathered at the GIGABYTE OC Lab. Sofos, GIGABYTE’s veteran overclocker and Team AU’s: Dinos22, Youngpro, and SniperOZ worked throughout Computex to produce four new 3DMark world records and a global first.

In order to push past the 7.5GHz barrier, the team of overclockers employed liquid helium to drop temperatures to a mind numbingly low -250° Celsius. GIGABYTE now dominates the world record in 3DMark03, 3DMark06, and Aquamark. The 3DMark06 world record was broken not once but twice over the past week, using different hardware configurations, subsequently making one of those scores a global first. Each of the 3DMark records were broken using the latest GIGABYTE X299 AORUS motherboards, AORUS graphics cards and G.Skill memory.

From these scores its obvious to see that the GIGABYTE X299 AORUS Motherboards excel in pushing the limits of performance. With their commitment to overclocking, GIGABYTE has continued to develop motherboards that can satisfy the needs of overclockers, gamers, and enthusiasts alike.
