About the competition

A little later than usual, but here it is after all: the monthly HWBOT OC Challenge. This month, we'll go easy on the hardware limitations and go for a hardware category that is already quite competitive (read: many teams should have cards): the Nvidia GeForce 8800 series. All cards are allowed to be used, although I can imagine some will stand out in terms of performance per clock. There are three stages: 3DMark01 single GPU, 3DMark03 single GPU and (this wouldn't be HWBOT if we didn't do something strange) 3DMark06 'Full throttle'. This last stage has no limitation on the amount of GPUs that can be used, so you'll have to figure out how to get multiple cards running!

The scoring algoritm is the same as last month's challenge: 25-18-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

The competition background for this month is just a nice wallpaper I've found on the interwebs. Click to download: http://hwbot.org/blog/wp-content//nvidia-chip-is-on-fire-1920x12001.jpg (source: http://thehdwallpapers.net/nvidia-chip-is-on-fire-wallpapers)

A list of all applicable VGA cards:

GeForce 8800 GS 384 Mb
GeForce 8800 GS 768 Mb
GeForce 8800 GT 1024 Mb
GeForce 8800 GT 256 Mb
GeForce 8800 GT 512 Mb
GeForce 8800 GTS 320 Mb
GeForce 8800 GTS 512 Mb
GeForce 8800 GTS 640 Mb
GeForce 8800 GTX
GeForce 8800 Ultra
GeForce 8800M GTS
GeForce 8800M GTX

Good luck to all teams!


You guys got this or what? biggrin.gif

Which card out of that list is the best to use? I think I have a GTX and a GT 512 around here.

Thanks for helping a lazy ass out! I see they are both up there, I guess it comes down to which is easier to mod. thinking.gif

I have two GTXs and a GT 512 all modded and ready to go. Just no time, motivation, LN2 or team.

I have 3 GTX's that I think still work. I'll see if I can find time for them.
