HWBOT Articles


HWBOT goes Patreon. Those that regularly visit the HWBOT community forum or for those that are on the LN2 Haven Discord channel are already aware that Der8auer has announced that HWBOT now has its own Patreon Page.


HWBOT is going through some major changes and 2021 will be a transition year to a non buggy, more responsive and easier to understand website, entirely dedicated to our passion; Overclocking. This ofcourse goes along with extra development costs on top of the monthly Amazon server hosting fee. Therefore you can voluntarily become a HWBOT Patron, just to give us that extra push to move forward.


You can find more info on how to become a Patron at the HWBOT Patreon page


To reward those that support HWBOT by being a Patron, it has already been decided to host an exclusive Patron Member Competition with prizes. Competition specifics on the date and such have not been decided yet, but we are aiming around October/November. You only need to be a Standard Patron Member for at least 6 months to be eligible to participate in this exclusive competition.


To avoid any confusion, donating does not provide you extra HWBOT Boints, additional decision rights, shares nor other extras at the HWBOT site.

Remember that HWBOT will remain a free to use website. So it is entirely up to you, to decide to step into this Patreon Project and to help us cover the extra development costs we are currently facing. Now if you can't spare the money or you just simply don't want to donate, you all will still be welcome to submit your overclocking scores and to engage on the Community Forum. Those that donate, thank you for your support, it is highly appreciated!

  HWBOT 2021 NEW STYLE RULES  

Another small step has been taken after the redistribution of the Global points last week. The New Style HWBOT rules are up in the benchmark list:

2D Benchmark list (click to open)

3D Benchmark list (click to open)

Memory (click to open)

Reference Frequency (click to open)

Disk Benchmark list (click to open)

Major goal was to simplify the rules, so they would be more accessible from Rookie to Elite level Overclockers.

    • No more distinction will be made between bus clockable or non bus clockable setups. 
    • Each benchmark has now properly listed OSses which are allowed, in regards of the hardware used
    • Most rules include the Benchmark download links wherever possible
    • Some benchmark require newer versions of the software: eg X265 Benchmark has been updated to v2.3 (HPET only)
    • New screenshots have been made according the latest rules
    • ...


HWBOT 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme

Version:

Latest version & Systeminfo 5.32+ (enabled)

Windows Limitations:

No Windows OS limitation

Verification required:
Via verification link & screenshot (click for example)
Verification screenshot
contains:

Benchmark window and result details visible
CPUZ tab for CPU and memory (V1.94+)
GPUZ tab for GPU and Sensor (boost clocks)
Windows taskbar must be visible
No screenshot clipping or cropping

Verification link:

Verification link required

Changelog/restrictions:

Nov 30, 2020: initial release

Benchmarks which don't have the new Rules will be phased out as there is no more support or a newer version was released that completely messes up the existing ranking, a perfect example is Maxxmem.Other Benchmarks like the "with BenchMate" will be merged in the future.It is clear we are running out of memory specific benchmarks. We already highlighted the Maxmem issue, also AIDA64 is a nitemare, as the developers change the output with each new release version. So any ideas of a proper memory benchmark are welcome.

Similar benchmark is lacking for Storage. We will release the AS SSD 2.0 version, but there must be be other quality storage benchmarks out there, with of course proper support from its developers.I opened a forum thead to discuss the new rules, chime in if you have any tips, spot errors (yes I'm only human too) or want some stuff to be added/removed.

The old rules are still visible via the benchmark itself, this in case there should be a debate or you want to crosscheck stuff. End of next week this link will be updated to the new rule set.


BenchMate version 10.6.8 officially released

  • review
  • 0

We got heads up from BenchMate's godfather Matt Zronek that he officially released the 10.6.8 version of his BenchMate secure benchmarking tool. Featuring a cool installer function and even an updater to keep your benchmarks in true Steam style up to date.

In the meantime BenchMate.org also has been revamped with a brand new website. For those that are unware what BenchMate is all about, here are some simple basic keywords for you: Security, Validity, Reliability and an Auto submission function.

Changelog for this version can be read here.

In the pipeline for future version are ofcourse adding more benchmarks, but also game benchmarks. Especially the latter could be very interesting to grab the attention from another target audience, which have sometimes a love/hate relationship with the Overclocking community. 

Keep an eye on the new rules (scheduled for next week) regarding proper BenchMate usage for specific benchmarks ;)

Luumi breaching 2900MHz GPU core with the eVGA RTX 3090 KIngpIn

  • review
  • 0

eVGA GeForce RTX 3090 KINGPIN claims top spots in UL Benchmarks Port Royal and Matt's GPUPI 1B in the hands of Finish OverClocker Luumi.

The last few days it was neck to neck for top spot with Greek OverClocked Gaming Systems in the GPUPI 1B Benchmark category. Today Luumi manged as first to crack the 2900MHz barrier with a nVIDIA RTX3090 graphics card. Stavros' ASUS ROG STRIX was just 5MHz short of doing the same. That battle for the top spot is far from over. Currently Luumi is leading with a mere 12ms.

UL Benchmarks' Port Royal now also has the Finish Overclocker topping their Hall of Fame charts in the single GPU category. With a new high score of 18496 he comfortably in the lead over his nearest rivals. The KINGPIN card was clocked at 2760MHz for the harsh Port Royal Ray Tracing benchmark.

Big congratz to Luumi. Enjoy the glory and the fame, but be aware the competitors are working hard to get back that gold!

It's over 100K!!! Rauf sets a new World Record for 3DMark05 with an RTX 2080 Ti

  • review

WorldRecord week at HWBOT. Swedish overclocker RAUF has busted the 100K barrier in Futuremark's 3DMark05. Another legendary milestone has been reached. Surprisingly enough Intel was the preferred platform for Die Hard Overclockers for a long, long time. Today it seems the new AMD Zen 3 Vermeer Processor has some cards up its sleeve, not only in the 2D multi-threaded scenarios, but also for some legacy 3D benchmarks.

The setup Tobias used consisted of:

Over 40K in UL Benchmarks Time Spy

  • review

Greek OC Team OGS raises the bar and sets a new World Record in the gruelling 3D benchmark: Time Spy from UL benchmarks. Two liquid nitrogen cooled ASUS RTX3090 Strix OC cards pushed the total score just over 40K. A new milestone has been (b)reached for Time Spy. Other overclocked components: an Intel Core I9-9980XE@5900MHz, 32GB of Quad Channel GALAX memory@3600C12 on an ASUS Rampage XI Extreme motherboard.

An average of 2.5liters of Liquid nitrogen was required for each run.

Verification link mandatory for 3DMark and VRMark benchmarks

New Validation rules for the 3DMark and VR Mark benchmarks from Benchmarks.UL.com.

Recently UL has changed the output interface of their renown 3DMark and VR Mark benchmarks.

Users with a 1080P resolution will have hard time to be able to fit everything on the screen as you can see on the below example screenshot:

Therefore we are obliged to impose a verification UL for any future submissions with 3Dmark and VR Mark. So the moderation team can check any anomaly with the present detailed data at the UL website.

KeepH8n and Skullbringer are the winners of the first G.Skill Tweakers Contest

G.Skill Tweakers contest winners announcement.

The winner of both the Ambient and Extreme Tweakers contest are official.

For the ambient class, out of a total of 16 participants, the winner is Skullbringer from Germany. Pushing his G.Skill RipjawsV kit through Geekbench 3 at a whopping 2602.7Mhz. Closely followed by Midnight703 (USA) and Luakri (POR).

The Extreme class was very tight, until the last score by KeepH8n (USA) was dropped. Clocking his TridentZ Royals through the Geekbench 4 benchmark at 2854.7MHz. Sergmann (GER) and Rauf (SWE) closed the top 3.

Congratz to al participants we saw some very nice scores from all over the world. The two winners will be contacted for further shipping details.

Thanks Team G.Skill for the support in 2020!








Who will be the first to reach 50.000 points in FireStrike before the end of 2020?

Chinese Overclocker Takukou nearly breached 49K in Futuremark's FireStrike 3D benchmark by pushing his liquid nitrogen cooled AMD 6800XT to a whopping core speed of 2800MHz. More is definite to come as there are still limits imposed by current drivers. Probably with a faster clocking AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU the 50K is already doable. If not, Big brother Navi is inbound to break that magic 50K barrier with ease.

Gongratz on the Global first place sir!
