Advanced Overclocking Championship 2008

Tomshardware reported the event in 18 pages. Nice reading for the weekend.

“The Advanced Overclocking Championship 2008, a world-class overclocking event, was held in Hong Kong on July 28 and 29. This overclocking competition, very highly regarded in Asia and sponsored principally by Asus, was open to U.S. and European teams for the first time this year. No fewer than 20 countries were represented: Australia, China, Finland, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan and Thailand.


The competition was held for two days. The first challenge for each team, made up of two overclockers, was to get the best possible performance out of their computer – which was supplied by the organizers and identical for all competitors. Three benchmarks were used to judge performance: SuperPI 8M, 3DMark01 and 3DMark Vantage. Each benchmark was only able to be run for a period of 1½ hours, for a total of 4½ hours of benchmarking. The second day was set aside for a few attempts at world records using various benchmarks. For that, each overclocker could use his own components if he so chose.”
