Last night we posted a news update in the official G.SKILL OC World Cup 2014 Qualifier discussion thread concerning the rules and competition structure of the live competition finals of the G.SKILL OC World Cup 2014 in June at Computex. The live qualifier competition starts on the first day of Computex on June 3 at 9.30AM and ends on June 5 at 5.30PM. The contestants each get two 4-hour time slots to compete in four different benchmarks. The best two proceed to the final, where two of the three benchmarks are chosen by the finalists themselves.
Additional note: the time-slots can be picked by the competition participants. The winner of the online competition has first pick, then the runner-up, then the second runner-up, and so on.
Ultimately, everyone is aiming for the big USD $10,000 cash prize for the winner. Luckily there is also a cash prize for the first and second runner-up, respectively USD $1,500 and USD $1,000. The two runner-ups also receive memory kits and for each of the six qualified overclockers there is a G.SKILL DDR4 sponsorship. That is an awesome set of prizes!
The stages for the live qualifier are,
- SuperPI 32M 5G
- Aquamark3 Full Out
- Memory Clock
- Catzilla 720P (with GTX 750 Ti)
