Here at HWBOT we try our best to deliver a fair and enjoyable playing field for all those who participate in the rankings and competition. To be able to provide this kind of service we have tried to design some submission and general rules to help remove any doubts about whether something is allowed or not. Based on continued experience these rules will be updated, expanded and completed as time goes by. Please check back for any updates.
A couple of weeks ago, we published our Raspberry PI overclocking guide. This guide included a hands-on guide for overclocking the Raspberry Pi as well as an introduction to HWBOT Prime. HWBOT Prime is a Java-based benchmark developed in-house that supports other platforms than X86-64. During September and October, we are organizing the (world's first?) ARM overclocking competition, featuring three stages. The stages differentiate by CPU core count - a single core ARM unit will compete only against other single core devices.
Participating is very easy. Just run the HWBOT Prime benchmark, save the benchmark score, and use that file to upload to the competition. Alternatively, you can also submit your benchmark from the benchmark application, and later submit the score via the HWBOT website.
It is very possible that the SoC used for your ARM device has not been added to our hardware database. If that is the case, please do not hesitate to contact us in our forums. We will be happy to add your SoC to our database!
Just like any overclocking competition, enjoy and have fun. Good luck!
