GIGABYTE Technology (India) Pvt. Ltd invited select Power Users and PC Enthusiasts, to discover and experience the extreme performance potential of GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards, based on the Intel Z97/H97 chipsets.
At the event named GIGABYTE Power Parade 2014 held in July in Mumbai, the invitees were treated to the exclusive technology features and performance possibilities of GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards, by Colin Brix, Marketing Director, GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit, Technical Marketing Department.
A major attraction of the event was an extreme overclocking session by the seasoned Indian overclocker, Shripad Kudtarkar, who used the GA-Z97X-SOC motherboard with an Intel Corei7 4770K processor, to display his overclocking skills. As the invitees cheered on, Shripad managed to achieve a SuperPI-1M benchmark score of 6.4 GHz!
GA-Z97X-SOC is one of the three Z97-based overclocking motherboards launched by GIGABYTE, the others being Z97X-SOC FORCE and GA-Z97X-SOC Force LN2.
Incidentally, very recently, two OC world records were accomplished using GA-Z97X-SOC Force LN2. While GIGABYTE’s resident OC evangelist, Hi.Cookie achieved a memory overclocking benchmark score of 4.56GHz during Computex 2014, the record was subsequently raised to 4.62GHz by another in-house overclocker, sofos1990.
