  1. 8x128GB LRDIMMs. Yeah, LRDIMMs timing is bad because of additional buffer chips. But it's a server board, I didn't expect anything more.
  2. No client version given, required version: 0.9.6 ?! Using, submit through the interface.
  3. High DPI: It's one of those things everyone is trying to get right. Perhaps offer two versions of the interface, one that fits nicely into a 4K screen Screenshot: Awesome, thanks Time left/time taken: Also, thanks! CLI: I ask for this in the sense that say I'm testing a bunch of CPUs at stock for a review, and I want to automate the process but still have the results applicable for comparison. So you can disable HWBot submissions with CLI mode, but just so I could get a score out without having to babysit my benchmarking routine. 8K: Do it. Do it. Do it. If you can find an appropriate video to add to the download (1GB?). You'll be surprised and how the x265 algorithm deals with small frames and big frames, where L3 cache / eDRAM matters and whether it can exploit IPC. That's when the step ups to larger L3/core might be more significant. MultiCoreWare: Like I said, I only discussed it as part of an IDF meeting and they hadn't given it much thought at that point so you wouldn't have seen any basic benchmark online from them yet. But we did discuss and they were keen - they'd work with anyone who is/was willing to develop one and spread it out.
  4. My input: Doesn't display properly on HiDPI displays - allow for 150% / 200% scaling. The submit 'take a screenshot' takes a long time when running high resolution displays. If you're going to implement a result submission that relies on a checksum, I'd suggested limiting the screenshot to an ALT+PRTSCN application that just captures the benchmark window. Show the time taken to process the benchmark at the end Show the estimated time to complete during the benchmark Allow a command line interface to run the benchmark which screenshots the result, saves the HWBOT file, and quits out automatically. That way someone could script up 50 runs and just choose to submit the best. Automatically generate a result text file with a verbose output, or in the log include the benchmark result. Include 8K. For LOLz. Out of interest, have you spoken at all to MultiCoreWare in preparing this benchmark? They develop the x265 algorithm which is meant to be the toughest and most efficient in the business. I had a good long chat with their VP of product management about our own x265 encoding tests at AnandTech, relating to overclocked stability while transcoding, last week at IDF. We even discussed the potential of an open benchmark, like x264 HD 5.0 and the like. Looks like you're already ahead here, albeit with Java in tow. But it might be interesting if you did a cross collaboration on this. I can make intros where necessary, hit me up.
  5. Submitted to wrong benchmark. This is a 3DPM-MT score, you subbed to 3DPM-ST
  6. Ticket ID: 1920 Priority: Medium Bascially I need all of these added:\r\n\r\nhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#Xeon_E5-2xxx_v3_.28dual-processor.29\r\n\r\nAll the way up to the 14/16/18 cores
  7. Wrong benchmark. You ran the multi-threaded version, which is 3DPM-MT. You need to resubmit in the right benchmark.
  8. From https://twitter.com/Sneblot/status/467590789707878400/photo/1 That's Roy Taylor, AMD VP Sales. Francois responded with:
  9. OK, I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. Working now. For some reason it didn't show up as a new build version on the play store.
  10. Looks my device is in the database, and the CPU, but it won't upload. Might be worth adding a file dump option that we can submit to you guys for debugging?
  11. Can't submit on HTC One Max. Is there meant to be a submit button somewhere?
  12. You might be confusing the science here. Here is the phase diagram of pure water: In order to get below 0C with pure, regular liquid water, you would need atmospheric pressure around 100 MPa (or 1000 atmospheres). Supercooling is a process that allows liquid water to be below zero, but any presence of turbulence (i.e. a pump or a heat source) or nucleation site (water cooling tubes) will cause the liquid water to form water ice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercooling Using a commercial walk-in fridge to increase the localised air pressure will have minimal effect. The act of opening the door creates the slush - movement creating nucleation sites. Of course when you start using blends (water/ethanol, antifreeze), then the freezing point can be lower than 0C due to the prevalence of hydrogen bonding in the mixture. Add in a multi-alcohol chained compound into water and away you go. But as we have mentioned, introducing a blend means you should be moving on up. Is there a way to check if someone has used a blend? No, but therein lies a small amount of trust within the community (just like everyone trusts you won't murder someone in the street).
  13. This topic has been discussed AT LENGTH before on the forum (I'm sure even I've told you Lewis!). Using a water chiller with WATER: OK for Enthusiast League Using a water chiller with a blend: Not OK, move on up. It's also the only way regular enthusiast users can compete with sub-zero climates of mountain benchers. I have a Hailea chiller, just need to get the rest of the loop. These chillers are built to have 3C to 20C selectable - the only way to go lower is by modding the thing.
  14. Is it me or does using his face make the game easier?
  15. Dude if you're offered DTF in Taiwan, go along Perhaps not enough protein for you, but it won't ruin your diet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Din_Tai_Fung
  16. I'll be there. G.Skill and Galaxy/HKEPC will both probably be doing something on their booths, no? Yes, everyone the Monday of Computex Week is a national holiday. So arriving on that day might not be fun. Get there the day before, recover from lag, and enjoy the Dragon Boat festival. DTF would be awesome, but if you go with more than 4 people at a time good luck. With three it took 45 minutes to get a table.
