Updated Catzilla Verification Rules

Two weeks ago we updated the Catzilla benchmark verification rules after a series of complaints from the community. Since then we have fixed the communication bridge with the Catzilla site. Submitting from Catzilla.com will now include a verification link, so it will always be possible to see the benchmark data. Following this evolution, we have updated the verification rules accordingly.

From now forward the following rules apply:

  • For all submissions: either a verification screenshot or submission with data file via Catzilla.com
  • For top-20 global: screenshot and verification link mandatory

The benchmark rules pages have been updated already.

Enjoy the benchmark everyone!

Let us know if you experience any problems :)

Nice to have the bridge fixed :)

i registered last week for the key to be able to test 720p and tried at least 10 times to refresh so they email me that key and it has not happened. What's up with that

Belgium leeghoofd says:

you also need to pay Dino :p

Australia Dinos22 says:

you have to pay to run 720p? are you sure, never prompted me for payment

Dinos open a tread here for help on this matter http://www.catzilla.com/forum/support , the always reply to any questions within an hour:

@ Pieter thank you , I can report everything is working correctly 100% with submissions for catzilla here on hwbot , as well as Catzilla website for the links always works flawlessly.

Australia Dinos22 says:

i can't do that, the registration email won't come through!

i didn't!

Germany Dancop says:

I am not able to go on their website and I am also not able to upload my verification file!!!

United States Gunslinger says:

I can't get a bug high run! :p On serious note, scores are all over the place with low clocks and high clocks, it's pretty hard to say what's bugged and whats not. (at least for me)

Germany Moose83 says:

Lol :D I buy the Key and can upload my scores on Catzilla MP and submit it to Hwbot... But you are right, when i run Catzilla 10 times or more, 1 or 2 runs get much mor Points, so i guess they are bugged runs :p

Hi Gunslinger,

Can you elaborate what you mean by "a bugged high run". I know we've discussed this on FB but would be good to elaborate more on it here.

Dino

p.s. i will ask Catzilla people to chime in this thread so if anyone has any tested and verified issues that need looking at, it would be good to mention them here. Please try to be clear and detailed.

United States Gunslinger says:

If you look at the single card scores and compare GPU clocks, some scores are way high with clocks around 1200-1300MHz (780 Ti) I've ran LN2 on Titan at 1600 core and could barely break 30K, yet 2nd place used almost the same clocks I did. The top 15 scores or so for single card really show how the score is pretty messed up considering the card clocks.

Germany Dancop says:

Guys...My run was definetly not bugged...the low scores are bugged...there's one important thing YOU NEED to look after! In some runs the FPS drop down...more than 40% and that constantly!!! Then you must restart your computer and run again! Furthermore as Moose said...it doesn't help to run it ten times! My score is getting lower and lower! Just the first run is the best! I usually share every tweak I know, but I have nothing to share, just watch you FPS!

Germany Dancop says:

Tell me how this works???? Same clock and same everything!!!

If I would be able to upload my scores...you could watch my fps...and you would see, that there's a drop at the end of GT1...sooo everything behind that comes is much lower!

Germany BenchBros says:

I wanted to help in this issue to make sth clear, but catzilla website is totally bunnyed up!!!

I just want to upload .crs file, but result didnt appears in my profile after uploading, so I cannot link result and check FPS graph.
After uploading result again "This result has been sent already" appears - so the result must be in the system but is not visible.

Catzilla really should do their homework.
We live in year 2014 and its hard to get a registration mail or upload a data file - applause!!!! :(

Germany Dancop says:

Thumbs up!

Germany Moose83 says:

http://hwbot.org/submission/2507094_moose83_catzilla___720p_hd_graphics_4000_1019_marks?recalculate=true For me its working fine, upload result and send to Hwbot fully works.............

Germany Dancop says:

http://hwbot.org/submission/2507091_ NEXT WR! :D Simply watch your FPS!!! OK...here's the explanation: When the cats fight each other and the white big explosion comes...just compare your FPS during the runs...If it's significantly lower...stop the benchmark, restart your system. And only the first run works...after that, I always had to restart! When the frames drop...in GT1, then your Physics score is damn low in the next test! That's the entire secret...It took me six hours, and due to some jealous people...everybody knows it know!

Austria basco says:

thx dancop, i get very low scores all time(not submit worthy-like 2\3000points lower then similar hardware)-only tested with nvidia.

That is only a few hundred points difference, what I think most people are seeing is around 1-3K difference in the 720p test

Germany Dancop says:

720p is somethink totally different....almost! Cuz also in 720P sometimes the mem on gpu sucks and you'll have that weird frame drop!

United Kingdom 8 Pack says:

Catzilla is up and down. In multi card it takes 2-3 mins just to scan system info and enter the bench (AMD). A nightmare with cold bugging CPU. You run again multi card with AMD at whatever clocks score goes down. SO run one 3 290X 1200/1500 say 36K. Run 2 1250/1600 34K

Reboot 1250/1600 = 38K consistency is terrible all at 720p. 1440 is better.

Single card scanning not so long but scores inconsistent. A result was just submitted with core 125mhz less than me but beating me by many points with CPU 1000+mhz less too. Yes drivers improve but not by this much. hmmmmmm....

Germany Dancop says:

Amen...

Austria basco says:

talking about lucky runs:
this is with pt1 bios on unlock powercolor-290non-x.
first 2 test seems in line with others but then it goes off-way off.


Germany BenchBros says:

Maybe we should do the same like with UCBench :-P

Austria basco says:

i like the bench but i thought the same like benchbros. win7(no sp) no tweaks(only services disabled) and no tweaks to the bench itself-that i did on porpose-trying to dublicate it. no dat file because i only have the monthly 1,49 dollar version.(this is ment with little sarcasm). i am tired of reporting results with nothing in it-no screen no file no nada.
