  1. System might be unstable. But according to the FAQ it can be many things. "My computer is completely stable. But I keep getting errors such as, "Redundancy Check Failed: Coefficient is too large." The notorious "Coefficient is too large" error is a common error that can be caused by many things. A full technical explanation is here. Because of the nature of error, it can be caused by literally anything. But below are the two most common causes" http://www.numberworld.org/y-cruncher/faq.html
  2. I looked into swap and would have liked to integrate it, but if I remember correctly it is not (completely?) configurable over command line. An additional config file seems to be necessary to set up the swap disk in detail. I might add this possibility later on if it can be ensured that the configuration file does not override the command line parameters. @Mysticial Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  3. Starting with BenchMate 0.10.6 you can install and run old versions next to it. For example BM 0.9.3 and 0.10.6 can coexist on the same OS and even be open at the same time, although I do not recommend it for benchmarking.
  4. I will send you the full changelog. The one above is really crude, I had zero time today sadly.
  5. Yes. There is no security issue with GPUPI 2.3 anymore if it uses BenchMate, so technically there is no reason the exclude it. @Leeghoofd Can we adapt the rules to include GPUPI 2.3.4+ if it's guarded by BenchMate? This way the old records with GPUPI 2 can be contested again.
  6. You are right, there is no need to let people wait longer for the release version of BenchMate 0.10.6. It is ready since Monday and just waiting for the new website. But I was too short on time to finish it and it probably won't be done until tomorrow. Here it is: https://benchmate.org/?v= Rough changelog: New minimum requirement for CPUs is SSE2. So it should work on all CPUs back to Pentium 4, where SSE2 was introduced. Introducing y-cruncher and CINEBENCH R23. Online and Offline Installer, so you can customize what benchmarks, tools and prerequisites are
  7. BM 0.10.5 doesn't support Ampere. Latest Patreon betas do: https://www.patreon.com/benchmate If you can wait a few hours, we will release the public version today.
  8. 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
  9. Only BenchMate 0.9.3 supports Geekbench 3, 4 and 5. BenchMate 0.10.5 is the latest stable release, but too old for Ampere. Ampere and Vermeer are properly supported with the latest version, BenchMate 0.10.6, currently in beta. It also reintroduces Geekbench 3 with an additional legal disclaimer. It will be released very soon, but if you want to grab it today, it's available for all supporters: https://www.patreon.com/benchmate
  10. When you run the bench, are both CPUs used? What Xeons are those? What OpenCL Runtime are you using?
  11. Thanks for the support! ❤️ I'm currently ironing out some kinks. If you find anything, just let me know!
  12. Thanks for the donation! Very much appreciated! Beta3 with lots of improvements, y-cruncher integration and working CB R20 and R23 integration is nearly done. If the testing goes smooth, it should be available for Patreons tomorrow. ❤️ (I will send you the link)
  13. Right click on SuperPi in BenchMate's launchpad and set affinity to any core you want. Or don't change the setting and let the OS decide. On modern OSes this will automatically use the best core communicated by the CPU. On Win 7 with unsupported CPU gens you will need to set this manually.
  14. This rule makes no sense when used with BenchMate. File integrity check would block the score if you touch the rendering file. I also checked that the image swap cheat is still not possible on BM and indeed it still works.
  15. Will release a new stable version tomorrow. SuperPi should work fine with it and lots of other bugs fixed. Edit: As a workaround I think you just need to make the SuperPi window bigger so it fits all text for 32M. And don't minimize it during the run. That was especially buggy with 0.9.3.
  16. It doesn't work with the latest Geekbench version, you have to use an earlier version. Geekbench dev changed something, probably not by accident. Some version do perform better, so check other results what they are using.
  17. A VM/hypervisor can emulate all register calls. So the concept of CPU models or actually any reference to real hardware is lost. Also time can be skewed freely. Therefore I chose to disallow VMs for BenchMate.
  18. To clarify and make myself look bad again and again, over and over: You can easily find a way to circumvent the current screenshot rule. The only technique mitigating this vulnerability is the validation of all files that are used for the workload. There is no other way. It also avoids real renderings of the workload with slightly decreased image quality. For CB R11.5 and R15 you can edit and put your own logic in there, basically just setting the result value you want. This also goes away if file integrity is always checked. Sorry to bring the bad news. There are more vulnerabiliti
  19. Benchmarks or at least associated points should change more often anyways. Yearly basis for example, so even the pros have to step up their game once in a while. I also think it's a good idea to move on from R20 directly to R23. Would only make sense with the custom R23 version though.
  20. To get the ball rolling here as well: While analyzing CINEBENCH R23 I had an idea. It seems like none of us want to embrace a new benchmark that brings nearly the same workload and result image as its predecessor. So why don't we customize a workload to our needs? Ladies and gentlemen, this could be the CINEBENCH R23 - HWBOT Edition: Let's make the workload HWBOT themed. There are these great renderings from somebody here for various competitions! We can roughly define the length of the benchmark, its memory consumption (for better tweaking with MAXMEM) and its heat productio
  21. Please use the result dialog (Save Result or F5 in BenchMate), it has additional logic to validate the result. For example the benchmark's file integrity is shown, which is not on the screen right now.
