GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards launched at their press conference during Computex 2014 the new extreme overclocking Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 motherboard. Since then, the SOC FORCE LN2 motherboard has broken the DDR3 Memory Word Record twice, once at launch with a 4.5GHz frequency and once again 3 days later at the Kingston HYPERX OC Takeover World Finals with a new record of 4.56GHz.
Following recent reports of several highly suspicious memory records, GIGABYTE took the matter in hand and brought out the big artillery to prove to everyone that indeed the Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 motherboard is the true #1 champion of memory overclocking. While trying to recreate its previous 4.5GHz memory score, the GIGABYTE team broke for the 3rd time the DDR3 World Record by achieving an astonishing 4.62GHz frequency on Kingston’s HyperX Predator DDR3 memory.
Submitting a score with clear pictures of your accomplishment on HWBOT.org is apparently not sufficient anymore to prove legitimate benchmark records. Making sure that nothing was left out, the process was recorded and posted on Youtube by GIGABYTE’s overclocking evangelists HiCookie and Sofos1990 and witnessed by an official HWBOT representative, showing the whole rig setup, including a top-of-the-range oscilloscope directly hooked to the memory to show its “true” live frequency.
