HWBOT Intel XTU Benchmark Validation Regulations

Allowed benchmark versions
Allowed operating systems
  • All Windows based
Allowed optimisations
  • Enabling/Disabling HyperThreading
  • Adjust priority and affinity
Disallowed tweaks/cheatsAny software or human interaction altering the perceived speed of the benchmark program, tricking it to believe it ran faster
Verification screenshot requirementsAll XTU results must now include a valid verification screenshot for a top 20 submissions.

All verification screenshots must show the settings at which the benchmark was completed. This means it is not allowed to decrease the operating frequency for screenshot purposes. In effect, the staff reserves the right to reject a submission that is deemed out of line for the stated system parameters. For XTU specifically, the data file must contain monitoring information (frequency and temperature).

Verification linkNo verification link required
Verification datafileMandatory for all submissions

Additional notesThis page contains the benchmark result regulation specifications for Intel XTU. The rules as described in our General Rules section are still applicable even if they are not specifically mentioned on this page.

It is your responsibility, and the responsibility of your team captain(s) that these rules are followed properly. Your submission may be blocked by HWBOT moderators without notice if your submission is in violation of one of these rules. Multiple infractions may lead to a warning, and eventually an account ban.

It says "No verification screenshot is required", but there is an example screenshot saying otherwise? What's the deal with that.

Christian Ney says:

The example screenshot is here because sometimes it is required for competitions.

"an error occurred while trying to upload the profile" message when hitting COMPARE ONLINE button... please include information of steps to take when this occurs

Austria _mat_ says:

The profile should have been uploaded anyway, right? I am also getting this most of the times with the latest version of XTU and the upload works in the end.

Save and then export profile after a benchmark run and then do the upload manually with the exported file. Works more reliable than the compare online button

hi guys, does anybody know what is wrong with my xtu?

UPD: save and export works fine


Hungary methall says:

Re San_Lex: I have the same problem. One solution was: After benchmarking I saved the profile on the right side. On the left side you can choose profiles on the "Profiles" section. Choose the one you've just saved and click "Upload". Now you can analyze and everything... Alternatively, you can export the profile file on you PC and upload it via your HWBOT account (https://hwbot.org/submit/benchmark/xtu/)
