We summarize thei year’s Swedish Computer Performance Championship with a preliminary list of results. Read on about the overclockign champions of 2006 and the thilling ride we had in the Price/Performance category.

2006 have been a very exciting year and when we at the start of December opened up the doors to SMPC2006 we did it with high hopes and expectations. We have seen several significant product launches during the year and seeing these being pushed to the limit in the Swedish Computer Performance Championship something many have been looking forward to. But just the competition itself is something special, SCPC 2006 is actually the fifth annual and for the fifth year in row we will crown Sweden’s best overclockers. A lot has happened since the first Championship of 2002 and the biggest difference is the serious approach we’ve seen among the contenders. Overclocking has taken a another step in the development as the time and money spent on the sport has been increasing significantly. It really is the elite of Swedish overclockers which participate in SCPC and the results reflects this.
We have during SCPC2006 also brought along a third category, namely Price/Performance. As the name implies this category is all about getting the most for your money and this year this turned out to be a really impressive year. It’s pretty clear that overclocking has become an even more serious activity, which of course still have its roots among the enthusiasts who are looking to get the most out of their hardware and thus spent money, no matter what budget.

The final results of SCPC2006 are of a truly high overall standard. Marcus ”Kinc” Hultin, the reigning champion, quickly gained control of the 3DMark category and we also experienced a world record when he published his winning result at 23,734 points. The record only stood for a few hours, but it’s still a great achievement considering all the extra work that comes with video verification and such during SCPC. Kinc has for the second year in a row been able to claim the title of Sweden’s best 3DMark overclocker and after a year filled with world records and overclocking displays he was truly a favorite who came through.

Kinc may be a two-time champion of the 3DMark category, but he still stands short in the race for most titles in a row. We namely have a historic champion in the form of Robert ”crotale” Kihlberg who managed to grab his third title in the Percentual Overclocking category and we can’t complain about how he did it. Robert kept his cool even as the Leadership battle went off and published his first result just a few days before the end. But then what a result, even if the world record at 203% from last year still stands, Robert managed to come extremely close. Robert’s 1.4GHz Intel Celeron Mobile namely stopped at 4.219GHz and a final overclock of 201%. Robert has for the third year in a row taken home the title and for the second year in a row he managed to break the dream score of 200%, impressive is the word.

Our third category has been the real attention grabber during SCPC 2006 though and using only 8000 SEK (~$1,150) to build an overall powerful computer has been proven to require skills in many areas. Tweaking both budget and hardware as much as possible. We realized quite fast that Price/Performance would become a very even event this year, but now that the preliminary results have been put together it turned to be a lot more than just even. We namely have a triple tie at the top spot. Marcus ”Kinc” Hultin, Jon ”elmor” Sandström and Marcus ”Marquzz” Ellby are all tied at 48 points, closely followed by Peter ”Incido” Nilsson at 44 points. We have a after a quick glance of the results unfortunately realized that we may have to disqualify some, none of these though, but it may still change these respective people’s results as the points will have to be recalculated in some events. We therefore can’t announce a winner of the Price/Performance category before we’ve been able to go through the results more thoroughly.

You should all keep in mind that these are preliminary winners of this year’s championship and we will start the verification process right away to be able to announce the final winners of the Swedish Computer Performance Championship 2006. You can count on more articles about SCPC2006 appearing the coming weeks, no to mention the preliminary results of the Price/Performance category.
