Graphics benchmarking Top 30 question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Should users that are submitting there scores for Top 30 in graphics benchmarking be allowed to change there cpus (ie: dual core to quad core) for benchmarking scores and/or be allowed to submit scores that don't use the same cpu throughout all 4 3DMark tests.

IMO I think the same cpu no matter what it is should be used throughout all 4 tests.

Coincidentally, I had this discussion with a Director yesterday. Based on what you see in the thread, obviously, using different set-ups are allowed. I'm ok with it either way but, it different cpus/gpus/overclocks, etc. are allowed, the rules (and the table) should be edited to clarify this. For example, the title should be "Top 30 Members (Graphics Benchmarking)," not "Top 30 Computers..."

Agree

I'm swinging towards no, at least how the board is laid out at the moment. Although I have no problems if the rules on the board were updated or made more clear on the matter.

So here's the thing .. if OCN members can be actually bothered to run these benchmarks and submit them in the Top 30 then why not be part of the OCN bot team?

The Top 30, whatever slant it takes (be this single CPU or different) should be for those OCN members who are also prepared to help the Bot team...

This will stop the fly bys and there are some in there still, who simply wish to take a place away from a more dedicated OCN member.

This is where the BOT team excels, it not only shows the Top results for each bench but also easily breaks it down into CPU / Card type and if a member moves team, well so their results are automatically removed allowing other OCN members to move on up.

Of course the Bot currently does not allow for an averaged score across benchmarks ... yet
