    Suggestion: based on the principle of consumer hardware only, 771 should be allowed but only the Skulltrail D5400XS with QX9775s
  2. GG finding a way to OC the GL, awesome work, pity about the HBM voltage

    Same for Titan Z?

    Sounds like a good name for a competition running january-march with the same stages as team cup but 1 sub per stage rather than 3 More seriously - where does the Fiji-based Radeon Pro Duo sit for the dual-GPU stage? It was released with a choice between gaming and workstation drivers and certainly was sold at retail but I'm not sure about global availability - IMO it's the same kind of rare half-retail as the Titan Z. There was also a Polaris-based pro duo which I'd argue is a pure workstation card.

    oof I do find it quite flattering that MLG borrowed our spreadsheet 😁

    Assuming that titans, RTX, fiji radeon pro duo, HEDT are all allowed, all being retail and not server or ES hardware?

    Since I guess it might be relevant again - IDK if it's gonna be optimal hardware this time but at some point can it be acknowledged that Vega M is PCIe 3.0 x8 and not an IGP?

    Beautiful. Just beautiful. Guess we'll need to find out if there's any way at all to get XP working on ryzen.

  10. So there's this bug with locked FM1 chips where if you set a higher multi than they allow the chip still accepts it and loads it into the appropriate register, it just ignores it and runs at the multi *it* wants. CPU-Z, bios etc report the multi the chip is being told to run. I'm not sure what the 'real' max multi is for the 3800 but this definitely isn't really running 6.7 However the benchmark here isn't cpu speed so the result, before anyone starts wondering, is fine. If it can be worked out what speed the CPU was really running, the hardware info should probably be updated with the correct speed.

    While we're asking for stages with stuff we have good hardware for, can I have an Atom 330 stage? Maybe DDR4 limited to Micron ICs?

    Benefits of allowing Titan/RTX: Might get top global scores set in the comp Won't have to put up with complaining from people who bought those cards and want to use them Benefits of banning Titan/RTX: Incentive to still bench hard for countries that don't have people with >$1k hardware Won't have to put up with complaining from people who didn't buy those cards and don't want to be disadvantaged Neutral: Stages with newer midrange hardware would help fill out the database for those cards, but it'd also make them literally near-pointless to bench on ambient I propose a compromise, have a full out 3D stage with any GPU allowed but make it something like Sky Diver where top cards won't really help, then everyone will complain 😀
