Hold on to your panties as somewhere this week HWBOT Engine revision 3.5 will be released. It will include a few long awaited features like manufacturer rankings (eg. AMD rankings), integration with youtube and livestream, team rankings, world record bonus points, notifications and much more.
You’ll be informed when your submissions change rank or points, or when you gain achievements. Small (eg +0.1 points) or irrelevant changes (rank changed from 269 to 270) are not shown.
Want to check the 3DMark 06 rankings with an AMD processor? Or SuperPi with G.Skill memory? Or the 3DMark 03 ranking with Nvidia 8800 GT in Europe? Any ranking you can think of is available in rev3.5, and just a click away.

Inner team rankings
On popular demand, an extra tab on your team profile page will show the inner team rankings for each popular benchmark.
Youtube and livestream integration
Link a youtube and livestream account to your profile and you’ll notify other hwbot members when you are doing a benchmark session. When using livestream, “live” streams will be shown on the front page. You will also be able to link a specific youtube movie to a submission. Don’t forget to tag your youtube movie with “HWBOT”!
Improved manufacturer pages
me the stat junkies amongst us, the manufacturer pages have undergone a major overhaul to include tons of usefull stats and all manufacturer products. Want to know which memory kit G.Skill produces for DDR3 and which one performs the best? No problem!
Intel Core i5 products:
Improved hardware specification pages
The processor, videocard, memory, motherboard and motherboard chipset pages have been polished to show more and better info. The gallery has also been vastly improved.
HWBOINTS addition: World record points
While revision 2.0 unjustly rewarded people benching with 4 videocards at stock speed, revision 3.0 punishes some world records because the 4 videocards ranking is not that rewarding. For these people, world record points has been introduced. People will gain an additional 100 points for achieving a world record, even if they have a better score in a different ranking (eg 2x videocard GPU) for the same benchmark. The top 10 world records will be awarded, from 100 to 5 bonus points. Please note this only applies to 3D rankings.
HWBOT revision 3.6
Revision 3.5 will be short lived as we intend to release 3.6 shortly after. Revision 3.6 will include all internationalisation features, and provide you with HWBOT in your own language with localised news and competitions.
When logged into HWBOT Germany, all rankings are scoped to Germany by default:
And of course, there have been dozens of bugfixes too. :)
