  1. Isn't the whole point of this update to move away from that concept? Who cares how much better you are than 2nd etc (since that's the basis for the current system)? (I personally liked the current system, actually rewarding people improving their scores even if they don't improve their placing, worth putting the effort going from 3rd to 1st etc.)
  2. "If competing vs. high scores is frustrating or non-usefull experience than I guess one needs to look for another hobby." And if you can't manage to open a couple of cpu-z screens then..... haha.
  3. What are you trying to show here? Those are all the PMC10 scores you have on your account. Your account was made this year: 05 Apr 2021 You shouldn't really have any scores from before then really, if you do have any it's only because Leeg has been nice about it.
  4. Ok for example, from a quick search you have some scores with the 2600k: What's the issue here, missing scores? Not getting points? When your old account was deactivated the scores went with it I believe, if the user doesn't exist anymore why would the scores?
  5. I thought your Ximi account had been deleted? There's no grand conspiracy, the points algorithm has changed but only in a minor way really, it still uses the same basic concepts, points available are based on number of submissions and position within that group. If more and more people beat your score in general/with your hardware, then you get fewer and fewer points.
  6. Pretty sure the rough outline for points hasn't changed much in years, global points obviously go as new generations come out, and with hardware points you need to be near the top for specific hardware, different benches require different combinations, always have (I think), always will (I think). Benches that give points do change over time, if you say you have been absent for a while it makes sense that you've not been around as they have changed. Check on the benchmarks page to see what gives hardware/global points. That specific hardware combination won't be good in a lot of benches, get a newer cpu and you'll do better in 3dmarks (either bigger or quicker cpu depending on the version of 3dmark), something like gpupi doesn't care about cpu so that would be fine. GPU doesn't matter when you're benching the 6950x for 2d, so you should be able to get some hardware points with that.
  7. What are you trying to say? That score isn't worth many/any points from a quick look at the rankings? https://hwbot.org/benchmark/3dmark_-_time_spy/rankings?hardwareTypeId=videocard_3140&cores=1#start=0#interval=20
  8. Just thought I'd pop in again to say love the drama, AU guys never disappoint. One of the few times I'm agreeing with the AU side, although I didn't realise the Giga vs Asus thing, it's all luck of the draw with binning chips from intel, not about the board I think but people like to fight over stupid stuff so I say let them Also whilst I agree with 1 and 3 from pro, you could do with looking at the way you come across and maybe tweak it if you want people to take you seriously. Telling people what they're going to do, stating opinions as facts, just being plain rude etc
  9. Didn't realise this was an issue, it's been allowed for as long as I can remember, it's allowed for other benches so why wouldn't it be for this? Gives people a better chance of needing less binning, instead of 1 core holding back 7 good ones for example. If people really do care then having two categories is reasonable, but don't see any logic getting rid of the current one.
  10. It says it's not your best Sky Diver 1x GPU submission, not that it isn't your best Sky Diver 1070ti submission, for the reason Mr.Scott has pointed out
  11. Oh when I looked earlier it didn't complain when I tried 1EUR but maybe if I'd filled out my details and clicked go it would have then.
  12. You can always donate less if you don't want to give the 10EUR a month. Don't see why patreon can't be used in this fashion, allows people to more directly support something they enjoy.
  13. I'm not particularly opposed to having them public or private as long as they're all treated the same, doesn't matter who's doing them.
  14. Depending which WR you're meaning, Leeg was informed of whatever tweak(s) were used to get it, unless you're on the side of tweaks should be made public in which case there are some other WRs that I think would have the same issue
  15. If this were to be not be allowed one would have to question what about others, why was the intel opencl (I think that's the right one?) allowed for gpupi, potentially even worse are unknown tweaks such as Rauf's win7 01 tweak that gives a clear boost. I'm not necessarily against drawing a line somewhere, but you've got to know where/have a good reason for choosing it.
