Get ready for HWBOT REV3.5

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.

Notifications

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.

Notifications

Manufacturer rankings

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”!

Livestream and chat

Improved manufacturer pages

For 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!

Manufacturer pages - motherboards

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.

National rewards:

When logged into HWBOT Germany, all rankings are scoped to Germany by default:

And of course, there have been dozens of bugfixes too. :)

United Kingdom borandi says:

I'm looking forward to the Notifications :)

United Kingdom Dualist says:

Brilliant, can't wait :)
btw does this mean that pcmark05 gets some proper points now like the other benchmarks do.? ;)

Belgium Massman says:

The 3D WR points are points for ... 3D apps.

Yeah poor PCMark05 is overlooked. Such a nice bench though 3D and 2D on the same run.

Belgium Massman says:

But less competition than other benchmarks

Because of the low points :p

K404 says:

Cause and effect.... "Ah drink too maach wahne, Ah moost take a piece" (No offence meant to French members!)

Belgium Massman says:

3Dmark Vantage started at an even lower rate than PCMark has right now. If "low points" was the direct cause of "no competition", there must be an exception for Vantage as Vantage gives lots of points now.

*insert occam's razor argument*

:p

Norway knopflerbruce says:

Most of the PCMark05 submissions were from the old days, when they got more boints. It just shows that it wasn't really a very popular benchmark in the first place.

Maybe we should make some kind of PCMark competition in a few months...? That could help a bit.

Glad you mentioned Vantage, well I'm want to ask about PCMark Vantage, when is that going to get points.? Most guys in the top 100/200 have brought their licences for the futuremark benches so why the hold up on this one.? If it's a bench and it has points then we'll pay if we have to.!

I know I'm going off topic MM, so please feel free to move this to a new thread if need be mate. ;)

It's because people have to work and tweak their whole system not just one bit so in effect should be awarded more points :D

This is awesome!! all those information it's just great! Thank you very much!!!!!

Hiwa says:

another rev another great work from Hwbot staff. thanks for the hard work guys .

K404 says:

I've just scouted a few categories... I dont like the new layout. Sorry. Theres too much guff and seeing the rankings isn't quick convenient or easy. Also dont like that for GPU categories, the GPU MHz are buried in the result. It feels like the emphasis is moving away from the overclocking + competitive side! :(

kikicoco1334 says:

i think the new hwbot is a little bit harder to use
