Using speed gear (slow motion) to gain inflated 3dm scores?

Is this possible, planning to have a go at it at a reasonable down clocked speed set in speed gear enabling me to slow down the application and therefore giving the card/cpu etc more time to buffer/render etc the image being displayed and therefore giving me a higher score?

You want to cheat on a benchmark? I'm sure they have checks against being able to validate such scores if it did work.
Not really, my e-peen is satisfied with its greatness at the moment, its simply an experiment to see whether actually slowing down the picture displayed will enhance performance. I couldn't care less about how good my ranking are in reality, its just for scientific purposes.
To see what would happen and if it works, for curiosities sake.
I think the only way your going to get an answer is to try this yourself. I doubt many people have tried this.
Excellent, a world first, see theres another reason.

You can do it, but if you do it on hwbot your score gets rejected. These scores are obviously modified and are MUCH higher than normal. IE: setting a world record with a rig that would normally score 1/5 of a WR score.
