Sub-3-Minute SuperPi-32M: Overclocking Milestone Achieved

Recently, SuperPi-32M has become less popular as a benchmarking tool. Modern CPUs are so fast that calculating pi to 32 million digits no longer indicates performance. Other benchmarks are preferable for evaluating contemporary CPUs.

In partnership with ASUS ROG and Intel, G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s top brand of performance overclock memory and PC components, is celebrating a significant accomplishment of breaking the world record for SuperPi-32M overclocking at an astounding 2 minutes, 59 seconds, and 919 milliseconds. This is the first time this benchmark category has been reached in under three minutes.

Using G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 memory, an ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard, and an Intel Core i9-14900KF desktop processor with liquid nitrogen cooling, SAFEDISK, the renowned extreme overclocker from South Korea, set an incredible world record. This achievement showcases the cutting-edge hardware performance of the newest computer hardware.

Peak Overclocking: SuperPi-32M at 2 minutes, 59 seconds, 919 milliseconds

A famous benchmark for CPU and memory overclockers, SuperPi-32M represents the first time a score of fewer than three minutes was attained, and this extreme overclocking milestone honors that achievement. Utilizing liquid nitrogen severe cooling, SAFEDISK was able to achieve a phenomenal 8449.2MHz CPU temperature as low as -188°C, as well as DDR5-9052 with 32-48-45-36 timings on an ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard by lowering the temperature of the G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 memory to as low as -60°C. This well-built and functioning under harsh circumstances is evidence of the astounding technological capability of contemporary computer systems.

Trident Z5 RGB is being pushed to DDR5-9052 CL32 2x16GB

SAFEDISK demonstrated the performance potential of G.SKILL memory solutions by successfully overclocking a 2x16GB kit of G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB memory to an incredibly high DDR5-9052 memory speed at a low CL32-48-45-36 timing, pushing system performance to the maximum. To reach this overclocking milestone, computation performance is enhanced by combining low timings and high memory speed.

  • Operating systems: 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10
  • Processor: Any CPU that is compatible with x86
  • Memory: A minimum of 256 MB RAM is required; however, for faster CPUs, more RAM is advised.
  • Keep in mind: To install the application, a modest quantity of hard disk space is required.


What is SuperPi?

The free benchmarking program SuperPi calculates pi to a user-specified number of digits.
It’s mostly used to measure and compare CPU single-threaded performance.

Why is SuperPi used for benchmarking?

SuperPi is a decent measure of raw CPU performance since it mostly depends on a single CPU core.
Its emphasis on single-threaded performance makes comparing various hardware setups easy.
It has long been a well-liked benchmarking tool among overclockers and enthusiasts.

What are the different versions of SuperPi?

There are other SuperPi versions available, but the “SuperPi 32M” version, which calculates 32 million digits of pi, is the most often used one.
Different versions compute between 1.5 million and 32 million digits.

What are the limitations of SuperPi?

SuperPi may not fully represent the entire performance of a contemporary CPU, which often depends significantly on multi-core processing, since it is largely focused on single-threaded performance.
It may not be an accurate representation of normal computer use since it is not a real-world workload.

From where can I get SuperPi?

You may obtain SuperPi from third-party sources even if official development has ended. Be careful while downloading from unexpected sites and make sure the material is trustworthy.

Are there alternatives to SuperPi?

Other benchmarking programs include Cinebench, which measures multi-core speed, and 3DMark, which tests CPU, GPU, and storage performance.

Does SuperPi make sense with today’s hardware?

SuperPi may still be a helpful tool for evaluating single-threaded CPU performance, particularly for older hardware, even if its popularity has decreased recently owing to the increased emphasis on multi-core performance.

Extra observations for SuperPi

Older systems can run SuperPi since it doesn’t need a lot of system resources to function.
Your SuperPi score may increase if you overclock your CPU, but you should only do it carefully and knowledgeably.

They would like to express appreciation to ASUS ROG and Intel for their excellent hardware offerings, as well as congratulate SAFEDISK on this remarkable accomplishment. This achievement marks not just a new peak in overclocking performance but also ongoing advancements in computing speed, as G.SKILL memory seeks to shatter boundaries and expand the realm of the possible.
