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.
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!
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!
IMPORTANT MESSAGE due to DATA Restore point
Due to a glitch, that we discovered early this morning, we had to urgently restore the database back to our last backup point which was Sunday the 28th around 14:00UTC.
This means that all scores from yesterday and even some of Sunday (after we took the backup) are not taken into account on the current HWBot page.
- If you still have the scores on USB or SSD feel free to resubmit.
- If you lost them, we are copying the database from 01/12 09:00 to a test server to reclaim the missing scores. If you have a score that needs to be resubmitted plz contact leeghoofd via the forum!
This restore prcedure will affect your current ranking/points total. Don't worry, these points need a bit of time to be recalculated.
For those competing in the G.Skill competition plz mail your final subs to email@example.com. The scores will be be manually inserted to finalize the ranking.
