  1. The past is the past, noone wants you to forgive nor forget, I would just like all of us to move on.... Nothing me nor the new management or whatever you want to call them are affiliated with. PJ's dream was big and this resulted in some great events like Gamers Assembly in Poitiers and the ones at Computex. Some events were labelled overrated and maybe in the eyes of many not even worth to be present at all.Nevertheless it allowed people from e.g. Australia, Brazil and Indonesia to participate at the Grand OC Final in Berlin. An experience for them, that otherwise would never had been po

  2. Hey there I hope everyone is doing good so far and you had a decent start into 2021. As you've probably seen there is some movement right now with our coder understanding more and more how things work on the bot. Albrecht is in good contact with him and I'm sure we're getting there. Right now our priority is still to fix stuff which is not working and work on the most important updates. There are few things I want to address quickly: Benchmark Updates: Albrecht created a power point for us to see what kind of changes the community wants to see regarding benchmarks. Personal

  5. Hola everyone , as you already know this brand new architecture of AMD RDNA 2 has come in the form of RX 6xxx video cards. I can really say this video cards are fast and can trade blows with the rtx 3090 / rtx 3080 and rtx 3070 as i have tested myself. " Monster in all Firestrike benchmarks - FS/FSE/FSU " and nvidia cannot touch it there. In the wake of this new architecture some things have change in the amd drivers and in the rx 6xxx Bios too. As it stands right now amd has an artificial lock on the max clocks on the core and memory as you already might heard or know. This is the down

  6. This weekend we got some heavy maintenance planned on the database of HWBot. This could lead to you being unable to submit ( 500 error ) Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but it has to happen some time What are we doing: Removal of a lot of bot created accounts Releasing new benchmarks from Beta stage Alphabetically sorting the benchmarks Adjusting the global point system More functionality for the admins ... So just bench and hang onto them scores, no need to sub them now, The Bot will be back soon with improvements under the hood..

  7. HWBOT goes Patreon. Those that regularly visit the HWBOT community forum or for those that are on the LN2 Haven Discord channel are already aware that Der8auer has announced that HWBOT now has its own Patreon Page. HWBOT is going through some major changes and 2021 will be a transition year to a non buggy, more responsive and easier to understand website, entirely dedicated to our passion; Overclocking. This ofcourse goes along with extra development costs on top of the monthly Amazon server hosting fee. Therefore you can voluntarily become a HWBOT Patron, just to give us that extr

  13. This will be an eternal debate and to draw a line is impossible as you can't define it all in a rule set. Let alone control it. Take eg your PCmark05 benchmark. It was designed at a specific period for a specific available hardware/software set. Issue today is that with many of the 2D legacy benchmarks is that they do not include all the required software in their benchmark. For PCMark05 you were required to install seperately the Media encoder. So looking at the laid down rules and your software OC mindset: you can't change a dll or such inside the benchmark folder, but anywhere el

  14. Wprime Globals have been canned due to the Software Elite DLL OCers not even remotely to be considered as a tweak mindset...Those that can't let go from software tinkering, have shot themselves and all the rest once more in the foot... Uncontrollable now, unless run with Benchmate... I don't play the game as my predecessors; the disclosing or sharing is caring is good enough policy. It makes my OC heart bleed it is continuously labelled as a tweak... Logic reasoning tells me a tweak doesn't give you this kind of a performance boost, allowing you to thrash a 2D ranking with 400MHz less pr

  16. I have something to say as well. The fact that the website has new owners is indeed amazing. However we can see some issues with the patreon funding meaning people are not actually eager to support with their money the new initiative. That being said i talked with a few people and basically no one is eager to fund hwbot because of the past issues. There were years in the past when hwbot was a money-machine making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Yes, you read that correct, xxxxxx $ per year. Massman was a youngster back then and he was tricked by a few scam

  19. Tweaks are only shared, as mentioned on Discord, if the one that discovered it does so himself. A tweak will be explained to the mod but he has no obligation to share. Its like a doctor that doesn't start to blabber about the medical state of his patients. There won't be any explenation from our side about existing tweaks or whatsoever. How did Roman list it? You discover something, you inform the moderator and we will give green light or not. It can't be any easier than that too understand. Anyways an even playing field will never happen, that's pure Utopia. For your info Christian

  21. We party like we bench , together! GGs , all countries, very tough CC this year, in more ways than normal. Tough time getting the right hardware, post was a PITA and bloody slow. Some things couldn't be found for love or money . South Australian government lifted border controls end of November, giving most of us barely a week or two to book flights. Never worn a mask outside of a hospital so flying with one on was bizzare, very odd feeling. Karma as usual went out of his way to organise a trip to Barossa Valley wineries, and then invite us back to

  22. Just to clarify: I didn't add wPrime to BenchMate at first because it is not a good benchmark. Visual Basic 6 is not the right tool and therefor it was a lot of effort to support it. But I did it anyway because benchers define what is worthwhile (as in fun) and what's not. And I'm more than okay with that as long as BenchMate's security and reliability standard can be upheld. That is not the case for the x265 benchmark btw (or any other bench using Java or other interpreter languages). The above was kind of true for wPrime as I stated in my Facebook post, because the DLL changed a lot of

  25. Hey all. Trying to reduce my collection to normal proportion, i have too many stuff, some of them i never even touched. Starting with a few special items : 1. Gigabyte Z97 Soc Force Ln2 BNIB, with bartx adapter, special made to be compatible with some Aio, one of the latest batches he made upon request. Board comes in rma box, was never tested, will do that before shipping. Comes from Asus Spain to my knowledge. 400 Euro plus shipping. 2.2x2 2400c8 Psc kit,the one from Splave latest sale post. 300Euro +shipping (added complete bundle, i received them

  26. Oh wait, did i say something against what you wrote? I don't think so. No need to do censorship, you will piss more people than you will please. What, is it wrong to know the history in order not to repeat mistakes? I don't think so. And no, i was not referring to last years, i am reffering to the good years, when every vendor supported hwbot, when intel had xtu development with hwbot, there were lots of competitions etc etc. Those were good times and good money wasted as well. And stop promoting that catasthrope of World Tour, you know better than before that at Msi Moa, Gigabyt

  27. Well Iā€™m giving this initial post a little update for everyone. The server formally called LN2 Haven has been swapped over to being the Official HWBOT discord server. The server is geared towards HWBOT and itā€™s members. You will find multiple staff members inside the server along with multiple benchmark developers. we are here for you guys. Share feedback, bench reports, experience, etc. what does this mean for current members? Nothing. Same great community with just a new branding. for new members I would like to extend a huge welcome and enjoy your sta

  28. Thank you for that constructive criticism. This new lineup has been for most benches decided by the active people around here... Honestly I don't see a problem with the current lineup... I see logical shifts, especially in 3D, where the CPU importance is far less now and its more about clocking your GPU. I guess that's what a 3D benchmark is about. But opinions can differ. I guess some of us go to that specific restaurant and order the same meal time after time...

  33. Thanks for putting all the info in here! For me I get black screens on load if I'm under -66c approximately. Cold boot bug around the same. Small tip to add is try memory 2100 - 2150 in steps of 10. 2130 is very strong for me. Also use gen 3 pci for firestrikes. I am wondering if there is some differences also between 3x8 pin cards vs 2x8 pin like when you install a kp 1000w bios on a 2x8 pin card and get 666w limit. Just thinking out loud.

  36. Just in case it was not clear: It is not my intention to leak all the tweaks. It's just a rule to make moderation easier for the crew. If you want to publish your tweaks that's still up to you as usual. HWBOT Staff will never leak your information without permission.

  37. Hi Roman! Thank you for the update. 1st, will donate when possible. Maybe not often, maybe not much, but want to help! 2ndly. The small quote above. To be sure people are fully aware, ALL tweaks the moderators know about needs to be listed in the rules in each benchmark including tutorials and pictures if needed. Because this will make a fair playing field. Then the mods and benchers can know the same thing. It would be helpful to everyone. It's not just that they are tweaks, some of these tweaks are secrets of the trade. HWBot needs to be fort

  44. I'll take the bait. wPrime is only multithreaded bench around that doesn't care about memory much on most platforms. It's also the oldest one so it's scores are comparable over a variety of CPUs. It's quick to run and much more predictable than people give it credit for. Rankings integrity has been secured with the ban on the DLL tweak. So not only don't I see any obvious reason to remove it, there are also plenty to keep it.

  47. So, I ran my 6900XT on LN2 and EVC2 first time yesterday. Ended up being a pretty long session because as others have reported there are quite a few things to balance to get good efficiency. It does not get easier on LN2 For me MPT worked fine in combination with EVC2 power adjustments. Like chispy reported you have to balance volts and clocks because those two decide power, and the power limit is the biggest problem when benching these cards. But on LN2 you also have to factor in temperature, going to cold can hurt your score. But the biggest factor is voltage. You will have to play wit

  49. My guess would be aggressive error correction. 2000 is not really any more stable than 3933 or 3966 all produce whea errors when not cutting OS memory down via maxmem. 3800 and lower is perfectly fine if there is no post hole which apparently even on DARK my 5900 has at 3800 with 07 post code. 3800+ boots fine but wheas.
