    The crash during the online submission in GPUPI happens because of this problem: It should be possible to fix it on the bot side of the interface. In any case I have already improved the online submission in GPUPI 4 to avoid crashes like these.
  2. I don't know when it stopped working, but I am getting reports since January that GPUPI crashes when submitting online while data files are working. As websmile was able to submit a result with y-cruncher half an hour ago, I guess the problems are related to a specific combination of OS/hardware. I am currently working with Win10 RS5 + 9900K/Z390 and 2990WX/X399. Both platforms have the same submission problems. Do you have a detailed error log for these HTTP 400 errors? The response body is an HTML error page btw but no specific information on it. I am guessing it is triggered by the web application.
  3. Pushing this. Online submission is not working, guys! @richba5tard
  4. The submission API currently returns a 400 error. No specific error message. Doesn't work with GPUPI, y-cruncher and x265. @richba5tard @Leeghoofd

    GPUPI 4 will be equally fast on GPUs, but faster on CPU when using the native path without OpenCL. That's my goal and it's necessary to leave OpenCL behind once and for all. The 3.3 categories should then be renamed to 4.0 (or 3.3+) to host all new GPUPI versions. The whole situation kind of sucks balls, I should have never released 3.3 so early. Would have been better to release the optimizations with GPUPI 4, but we are all smarter afterwards, right?

    You misunderstood my past post. With Windows 7 GPUPI is falling back to RTC which is safe on all platforms but the EVGA SR-2 (you will be notified if it's detected). So normally no need for HPET on Windows 7 for GPUPI! On Windows 10 RS4 and before you don't need HPET if you are running Skylake or higher. All other will need HPET because RTC and RDTSC are not safe on Windows 10 Windows 10 RS5 needs HPET enabled on all platforms currently because QPC frequency was changed and GPUPI can't detect it yet!

    No HPET necessary for Intel CPUs >= Skylake. Just use GPUPI 3.2 or above with Windows 10 RS4 or below. In RS5 it is currently not working because it changes the timer frequency of QPC to 10 MHz instead of the previous bootup frequency. So GPUPI 3.2 can't detect the usage of RDTSC correctly in RS5. Also no need for bcdedit, just open GPUPI, goto menu "Tools" => "Enable HPET". Reboot and you are good. You can also switch it back there. OpenCL is the main problem right now. It's a mess. The timer restrictions are necessary and good. Won't apologize for that. 😛 Btw, GPUPI 4 already uses a driver to directly access HPET and there is not need for OpenCL for CPUs anymore. Current status:

    GPUPI - SuperPI on the GPU

    To anyone wondering why GPUPI is currently crashing with the W-3175X: I am working with Intel to fix the problem. No CPU sample of course, but they get me in touch with the benchmark guys. I sincerely hope that they deliver so GPUPI can help to prove the true value of this overpriced chip. 😛

    Very true, that's why I haven't disclosed anything meaningful to cheat with. I merely showed that it's possible to point out that there are problems that can not be neglected. So no tools and no instructions from my side, if that's what you meant. Ok, let's make XTU the exception. And I only disclosed after it has lost its global points and it's far more than a cheat manual (I hope). In Allen's case we are talking about fooling CB R15, right? It went exactly the way it should have been. Cheat discovered and rules changed for the better. If some results with this cheat slip through, it's because of the submission system, not because of Allen. Speaking of CB R15, this week I have successfully wrapped R11.5 and R15 with BenchMate; a project that I will make public later this year. If you are interested, follow me on FB and Twitter. Every now and then I am posting status updates about the project. That would be solution to a lot of the existing problems in the overclocking community.

    Can't see anything wrong with it as well. If you find a way to cheat, publish a score and disclose the details in the thread. Mods will have to pick it up from there to make it work, no other way around it. Forcing the bot's hand, so to speak.

    Intel XTU Version Library

    XTU doesn't need AVX, there are code paths inside the inner benchmark executable without AVX as well. You can also disable the AVX path via a configuration file, details in my article here.
  13. Seems like the category has to be added manually by the mods to make it work. @Leeghoofd?

    GPUPI - SuperPI on the GPU

    OpenCL support for CPUs will be deprecated in GPUPI 4 anyway, so this won't be a problem in the long run.
