We're about twenty days in the HWBOT Team Cup 2013 and the Cup seems to be heading in a similar direction as last year: exciting and nerve-wracking until the end. At the moment of writing, the Canadian-based Overclock.net is leading the overall ranking with 851pts, having the US-based Classicplatforms.com trail by only a single point. The German AwardFabrik team is a close third and although fifty-one points behind the leader, still has a significant chance on winning the Cup this year.
In the top-10 we find most of the regular top overclocking teams such as Overclockers.com, but also a couple of surprising up-and-comers like the Indonesian K-Suicide Mission and the Czech HardOCzech. Just outside the top-10, we also find Tributar Forums tagging along with the pack. Nice to see a couple of new teams at the top of the ranking.
The HWBOT Team Cup 2013 ends on April 30 and features four stages:
- HWBOT Team Cup 2013 - SC1: 1M Challenge
- HWBOT Team Cup 2013 - SC2: 3DMark03 Single GPU Historical Battle
- HWBOT Team Cup 2013 - SC3: Vantage Full-out
- HWBOT Team Cup 2013 - SC4: "Live Performance"
