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.
The Team Cup is coming! But not just yet. During March we can practice even more with another warm-up round. Just like last month's warm-up competition, we have again prepared five unique stages.
In the first stage, the objective is to achieve the highest CPU Frequency validation with an AMD Athlon K7 CPU. The record is currently in the hands of Ryba and set at 3614.08 MHz with an Athlon XP-M 2600+. For the second stage you'll need a Via CPU and run the SuperPI 1M benchmark. Borandi holds the best score for this type of setup with 1min 21sec 89ms using the Nano L2007 at 1600.1MHz.
The third stage is a bit more open, as it only requires an AMD CPU for the 3DMark01 benchmark. The current record in 3DMark01 with an AMD CPU is held by Tiborrr from Slovenia with 114100 marks. In stage four we continue with the Pentium II CPUs, but this time put it through its paces using our own HWBOT Prime benchmark. Target: Mr.Scott's 734 pps with 2x Intel Pentium 2 400Mhz at 525MHz. The last benchmark of this warm-up round is Geekbench (single core) for which you can use any CPU you like.
Good luck everyone!
