[Computex 2023] GSKill OC World Cup 2023 Final: the results


Last February, we learned that after a three-year absence, G.SKill would be organizing a new edition of itsoverclocking competition: the “GSKill OC World Cup 2023”. The first part of this competition was organized on Hwbot to determine the 9 best overclockers qualified to go to Computex 2023. Yesterday and the day before were the qualifying rounds and then the finals.

The 9 overclockers who took part in this qualification phase were Rauf, Seby9123, CENS, snakeeyes, biso biso, Luumi, Micka, sergmann and ZeR0_Dan. They competed on six benchmarks: DDR5 Memory Frequency, Geekbench6 – Multi Core, HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 1080p, 3DMark11 Physics, y-cruncher – Pi-2.5b and SuperPi – 32M. In this game, the top three finishers were Sweden’s Rauf, America’s Seby9123 and Germany’s CENS.

In the final, it was the American Seby9123, aged just 20, who took first place despite being the only “amateur” in the competition. Congratulations to him! As a reminder, GSKill had a cashprize of $40000 US, with an envelope of $10000 for first place, $6500 for second place and $5000 for third place. The other qualifiers also received part of the cash prize.

It’s great to see these overclocking competitions starting up again after the pandemic. Let’s hope it will give ideas to other brands who also organized competitions a few years ago. All photos of the competition can be found on the GSKill website.
