HWBOT OC Challenge February 2012

We're getting closer to the end of the HWBOT OC Challenge series, but until then we can still have our monthly competition. In the same spirit of all other HOC competitions, this month we're going to run various 3DMark benchmarks with old and even older hardware. The four stages are:

  • #1: Allendale/Conroe/Kentsfield Vantage
  • #2: S939 3DMark06
  • #3: Pentium4 3DMark03
  • #4: Intel and AMD-free 3DMark01

The point scheme is, again, different from the default distribution, but unlike previous competitions it's much more straightforward: 25-18-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. In other words: the only way to win is by being the best!

Four additional notes: ES is not allowed, unlocking cores (CPU) is not allowed, no limitation on amount of graphics cards and you must use the super-fancy competition background (link). Good luck!
