Thanks for stopping by!

One of my first objectives as a new benchmark editor is to collaborate on a new bench competition. There has bee some talk about the possibility of vendor supported prizes, which I think we can all agree would be incredible. Regardless of vendor sponsorship or prizes in general I want the next competition to be very successful and have a wide appeal to everyone.

I created this thread because if we choose the next competition guidelines as a group then I think we can achieve a higher level of success.
There has been some discussion lately about the direction we should take the next competition in. Everyone has a different opinion and I just want to make sure everyone interests are taken into consideration. I cannot confirm that the decision we make in this thread will be the final decision, mostly because I dont have that authority, but I think it will hold weight regardless.

Personally, I like the platform of previous competitions where there are 3 stages but only 2 scores count. Here are a few suggestions to narrow down the scope of the competition:
  • Legacy 2D
  • Legacy 3D
  • Modern 2D
  • Modern 3D
  • Cross generation memory only
  • Cross generation 3D
  • Cross generation 2D
  • Mix of everything above

Please let us know what type of competition you would to see next, be as detailed or brief as you want.

I don't mind as long as as many people as possible can compete, because that's the only way to promote benching.

DDR2 Frequency 1st Place = 910.1MHz DDR (1820.2MHz) - http://hwbot.org/submission/3589779

Reference Frequency 10th Place = 711.18MHz - https://hwbot.org/submission/3978447_

always fun to enter comps with good performance brackets, that keep the scores and competition tight!

 

**Not so fun - HWBOT OC comps with rules like "compete with your best 4core". Its pretty moronic to think that people with 2500k's would ever be in the same bracket as a KBL and be able to "compete"...leave it up to HWBOT, to think that it 'encourages more people to enter'. LMAO.

 

 

OS comps are fun too !  ie - best Physics 3D11 score with locked CPU/RAM speed. *people learn a lot from comps that focus on efficiency..and scores are always tight.

 

 

 

 

 Good luck, cant wait for some new ideas and comps!

Hmm, how about HD 3000 series destruction comp?

Single card and/or crossfire with 3DMark03/3DMark05/Heaven Basic.

I was thinking along the same lines except with the HD 5000 series. That way we can use newer benches and take some importance off the cpu and onto the gpu.

If we do the HD 3000's it would probably be best to put a cap on the cpu freq to like 4.5 or 5GHz (possibly on just haswell and up and let Ivy and below run at any freq on ambient cooling) so we have to focus on the gpu more. Otherwise people with Haswell, Skylake or kaby cpu's will completely dominate it.

Personally, I love the sound of some legacy 3D biggrin.gif However, I want to make sure we set this up to have the widest audience possible. Between the two suggested I think HD5000 might be better because it is more prevalent.

If we did 3D what about having an ambient class limited to 5G CPU+ambient temps, then an all out class with no restrictions. Also, we could use benches that dont scale well with CPU (like 3D03, GPUPI)

Nobody has talked about a memory competition, or a straight up 2D war, both could be fun.

As much fun as legacy 3D can be, I really like the idea of an efficiency oriented competition.... Or at least some sort of 2D legacy. Mmmmm, 2D legacy.

With legacy 3D, we could also focus more on the graphics score instead of the overall, which would at least somewhat limit the effects a newer processor can have compared to older ones. There still will be a difference, but instead of it being a huge one, it's a smaller one.

The biggest question that comes to mind with having memory as the main focus when benching is that at the moment, there sadly aren't too many benches that focus solely on such, so if memory were to be included I would argue that it would be nice to have a mixture of memory as well as say some 2D legacies. Or there's always the fruit salad approach of a gigantic mixture of all of the above, with say 2-3 different benches available in each category, and then have your best 2D, 3D, and memory scores determine overall standing. Seems somewhat crazy/nutty of an idea though.

Totally with Wulfe and Clep here, I think an efficiency/tweaking comp, or at least one that weights it heavily, would be awesome.

If we were doing legacy 3D, HD 5000 would be cool because the Evergreen cards were awesome and Cypress/Juniper aren't too expensive right now, cards can be had for $50-ish. Plus mucho HW boints available. biggrin.gif

3DMark01 with CPU frequency cap then? :O
