Exclusive pictures of Fugger in action

 

Charles Wirth, AKA “Fugger,” the owner of Xtremesystems.org /forums has been helping Intel development for some time. His latest venture included a live demo during the Opening Forum keynote speech from Anand Chandrasekher, the Senior VP/GM of the Ultra Mobility Group. Charles was first up and it was reported about here.

Since then, we have gotten our hands on some photos from the scene to give you an idea of the hardware that Fugger was using to break the world records. We also have exclusive photos of those world records while they were on the screen. Check it out:

First up we have Charles Wirth (Fugger) standing next to his system.

A close-up picture of the actual 3.2 GHz QX9770 Yorkfield processor inside an ASUS  P5E3 Deluxe motherboard. The BIOS did not recognize the CPU, and came out with random speeds ranging from 5.6GHz CPU to 2.6 GHz. This will definitely have to be addressed by the ASUS BIOS team.

Image

Smoking fast, this processor seemed to increase in speed, faster and faster with an increase in voltage, Fugger told Fudzilla that if you can keep it cold and stable enough, the processor is able to go higher and it seems like the other hardware limits the processor. This is good news for Intel who are investing heavily into making sure they are the enthusiast choice for the next few years at least.

Centon DDR3 memory was the memory of choice at the time Fugger benched for these photos.

The timings were tight, although on a T2 command rate. While I was there, he tightened them up a bit further.

Take a look at the new Super Pi world record. 8.422 Seconds. With the latest that technology has to offer, and with a lot of hard work, Fugger is showing the world what it means to be an Xtreme legend. Well done, Fugger!
