Greek OC lord OGS reclaiming the 3DMark11 RTX 2080 ti record with a mere 23 points. HiCookie from Gigabyte closing in nicely on some top scores too. Surprisingly still nothing from Team MSI...

AMD AM4 Submissions Cleanup

  • article
  • 0

Due to the numerous submissions still being done on Windows 8/8.1 and 10, the time has come to remove these subs. Just a quick recap: thanks to the timer skew or RTC bug still being present when benching the AMD platform in combination with the aforementioned Microsoft OSses, scores can become bugged or even tricked by the end-user. Therefore the previous HWBot staff only allowed to bench AMD on Win8/8.1/10 and alike Server versions IF the end-user disabled their points.

The GPU Flashback Archive: NVIDIA GeForce 500 Series and the GeForce GTX 580


This week the GPU Flashback Archive sets its sights on the GeForce 500 series from NVIDIA. Arriving in late 2010, the 500 Series was the second round of graphics cards based on the Fermi architecture which had limped over the line in the previous generation, ostensibly due to fabrication and yield issues. The new flagship GTX 580 arrived with a more polished take on the Fermi design that help NVIDIA combat the threat from AMD and their popular Radeon 5000 and 6000 series cards. As ever, let’s take a look at the new GPU, the new flagship card and a few of the outstanding scores that have been submitted to HWBOT.

This week’s trip down GPU memory lane is all about the NVIDIA 8 series of graphics cards, a series that marks the arrival of DirectX 10 and a wholly new GPU architecture. Arriving in late 2006, the NVIDIA 8 series remains a fondly remembered era for many enthusiasts and of course overclockers, especially the GeForce 8800 GTX a card that is still a topic of conversation with some retro-minded HWBOT members today. Let’s take a look at the hardware associated with the GeForce 8 series era, the technology and features that arrived at that time, and some of the scores and submissions that were made using popular GeForce 8800 GTX card.

The GPU Flashback Archive: NVIDIA GeForce 7 and the GeForce 7600 GT Card


Today’s trip down GPU memory lane is all about the NVIDIA 7 series that arrived on the scene in June 2005. Where previous GPU designs had heralded major innovations and the introduction of entirely new technologies, the 7 series was more of an update by comparison. The new GPU arrived with a change in nomenclature and notably a change in the way that NVIDIA graphics cards were actually launched - NVIDIA and AIB partners had products shelves on the very same day that the press embargo was lifted. Let’s look at the GPUs and cards that arrived as part of the new 7 series launch, the cards that have since proved to be popular with overclockers on HWBOT and of course, the notable scores that grace our database to this day.

The GPU Flashback Archive: NVIDIA GeForce 6 and the GeForce 6600 GT Card


Welcome back to another episode in our GPU Flashback Archive series. Following on from last week’s look at the GeForce FX series, we turn our attention to its successor, the NVIDIA GeForce 6 series. After rising to a position of relative dominance in the early years of GPU design, the GeForce 4 and subsequent FX series had seen NVIDIA lose ground to ATI who had stolen a march with their highly popular Radeon 9000 series. The stage was set for a return with the launch of a new GPU design and a series of cards that required more space in your rig and additional power to deliver a truly next generation gaming experience. Let turn our minds back to 2004 and check out the technologies and features that debuted with the GeForce 6 series, plus the most popular cards of the era and the most notable scores that have been submitted here on HWBOT.

The GPU Flashback Archive: Nvidia GeForce 3 and the GeForce 3 Ti 200 64MB Card


This week’s GPU Flashback Archive article is all about the GeForce 3 series of graphics cards from NVIDIA, a company that by this stage in history was recognized as industry leader in GPU development and innovation. The third iteration of its GeForce brand launched with a hiccup or two in early 2001 and enjoyed status as the company’s top tier offering for around a year before it was usurped by its successor, the mighty GeForce 4 series. Let’s take a peek at the new technologies and innovations that arrived with GeForce 3, the cards that proved to be most popular with overclockers on HWBOT and of course, the notable scores and benchmarks that it spawned.

The GPU Flashback Archive: Nvidia RIVA Series and the Riva TNT2 M64 AGP Card


The Nvidia RIVA 128 graphics chip (codenamed the NV3) was the first version of the RIVA GPU series. It arrived on the scene in April of 1997 and was arguably the company’s first ever commercially successful graphics processing unit. The RIVA 128 was actually a departure from the very first Nvidia GPU series, the ST-G-2000 (NV1) being the first GPU on the market from Nvidia that could manage both 2D and 3D video acceleration. Unlike its predecessor the Nvidia RIVA was designed specifically to accelerate rendering of Direct3D 5.0 and OpenGL 1.0 API workloads.
