Old School is Best School Round 4: March 15th - April 15th 2017

The OSiBS contest is also a team contest which means that teams have to be well organized. Once a team knows who has what hardware, it’s all about deciding who has the skills to make the important winning scores. Coordination and leadership is a key factor in winning the contest. The OSiBS contest is in its third season on OC-ESPORTS and spans the Overclocking 2017 season with a series month-long contests or rounds. Each round has three stages where specific hardware and benchmarks are paired. Here are the stages we have lined up in Round 4.

  • Stage-1: CPU Frequency (OC %)
  • Stage-2: 3DMark01
  • Stage-3: Cinebench 2003

For the record, Athlon MP was for multi-processing (hence, "MP") systems. The mobile chips the article refers to were actually called Athlon XP-M. ;)
