Traditionally, September is the worst month for any youngster. It means the end of the summer vacation and back to the books. Luckily, it's not just the students who hate the nineth month of the year, but of course also the teachers! To give both a good excuse not having to spend time on homework, GIGABYTE has prepared another Classic Challenge for you!
There are two stages: 3DMark01 and SuperPI 32M. For SuperPI 32M there are no limitations; a perfect way for chemistry student/teachers to set up camp in the lab and waste the school's liquid nitrogen supply. 3DMark01 has a CPU MHz cap set at 5GHz (=< 5000.00 MHz) as well as a Nature subtest limitation of 1340FPS (=<1340.99FPS), which means LN2 is (although recommended) not a requirement to play.
In case 'back to school' hasn't given you enough motivation (lazy students!), check out the prizes. Yes, that's right: Z77X-UP7 for the winner! Z77X-UP7! Motivation enough now?!
Last-minute update: the team at GIGABYTE also announced they'll be giving away another Z77X-UP7 mainboard as a lucky draw amongst those who didn't win. Submit a result, learn how to improve your efficiency in these epic classic benchmarks and you might as well end up with one of these Z77X-UP7 boards!
Good luck to all!
