    Some of you may already noticed that for some sockets the possibility to submit with more than one CPU disappeared. The background is that we had a lot of subs with incorrect core count. Some users probably got confused by the field and thought they have to enter their core count in the first field. Of course our Hardware Database already knows which core count your CPU has (except the maintainer made a mistake), so you dont have to do this. This resulted in dual cores appeared in quad core ranking or quad cores appeared in 16 core ranking. Like a Core i7 4770k entered as 4x was suddenly making a appearance in the sixteen core Global Points ranking for Cinebench R15 and of course, scored a gold cup for the hardware ranking. To solve this we implemented a function to prevent selecting multiple CPUs once you choose a CPU which only works with single socket systems. The only exceptions are sockets like LGA2011, LGA2011-3 which can host single Desktop CPUs as well as Dual Xeons. If you spot such submissions please report. Frederik ran a query to automatically move all wrong results back to their actually meant ranking, which affected almost 10k results. Unfortunately due to a bug not all subs got catched. I still see a lot of XTU results appearing in the wrong ranking. But I think its still a step in the right direction.

    Replicated the efficiency, this is a full stock 3870K with minimal OS tuning kicking the crap out of every other 3870K score on the board GPUPI_for CPU_100M_01m-18.433s-NOSS.result System is using an A75-UD4H, 4x1GB SS D9JN sticks, Intel X25-M SSD and HD 6450. Steps taken to reproduce: Place motherboard on OBT Install CPU, RAM and GPU Connect all cables and peripherals Install Windows 7 SP1 (in my case from a disc image that includes .net 4.5) Set visual elements to max performance, power plan to max performance, disable UAC (this really shouldn't matter much...) Install HD 6450 series GPU drivers (15.7.1 WHQL) Download GPUPI 3.2 (NOT legacy version) from https://www.overclockers.at/news/gpupi-international-support-thread Run benchmark There are slower scores out there with a UD4H so I seriously doubt it's related to the board but I have an asrock A55 board I can try if people want, more likely it's the openCL version though. This is my first time running GPUPI on this platform and I didn't do anything I wouldn't have done anyway so from this first test I'm not sure how other people are so slow. EDIT: For my own satisfaction I threw the asrock board on the bench with the X4 631 and random ram it happened to have in it, hooked up the same OS and... 2m42s. Probably shouldn't have opened that can of worms at nearly 1am, I'll have to look into it tomorrow. EDIT2: Speedup is on bios versions F2-F4 on the A75-UD4H. F5, which updates AGESA to, loses the speedup (1m20s to 2m16s full stock 3870K). I'm not sure what the mechanism behind it is but it's not timer, and I'd hope the work is getting done because if it's not then GPUPI 3.2 is badly broken. EDIT3: Similar speedups happen on GPUPI 3.0.1 and 3.3.2 legacy.
