Professional overclockers have been breaking world records with Z590 motherboards and 11th Gen Intel Core processors over the past month. The latest achievements come from a group that not only beat the previous ones, but, in some cases, demolished them. One that stands out was set by Tobias “Rauf” Bergström, who beat the Super PI single-threaded 32M benchmark by over 20 seconds. An ASUS ROG Maximus motherboard set the last one five years ago. From processor and memory speeds to top scores in GPU benchmarks, the teams beat many records.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
