Recently I started getting this message of Invalid Result at Benchmate's result: HPET TIMER/SKEWING: HPET32, 14.32Mhz, 1288344193844090.75ms Skewed What is wrong with my Ryzen 3600x?

Belgium leeghoofd says:

Nothing is wrong, it is a known issue and the reason we need to impose the usage of BenchMate, especially on AMD and legacy Intel platforms. Due to this timer variance your Geekbench result might be bugged, hence why BenchMate doesn't approve it. Sadly there has been a hickup with the cooperation with the Geekbench developper. Resulting that this bench is no longer supported by BenchMate


I'll edit the rules where AMD users must use BenchMate, I was awaiting 1.0 release which should have additional benchmarks included

Greece viper says:

So what should I do? How can I submit my score?

Belgium leeghoofd says:

Try win7 like the one Ryzen ISO  from Infrared (
