  1. https://hwbot.org/hardware/motherboard/proliant_dl360_g5/ https://hwbot.org/hardware/motherboard/ga_ep43_ds3lr/
  2. Could you contact CPU-Z authors about this bug? https://www.cpuid.com/contact.html
  3. I'm honestly not really happy with that move. Depending on who you ask, the definition of IGPs are sometimes GPU integrated in the CPU die or / and CPU and GPU die on the same package. So the Polaris GPU is on the same package with the kaby lake CPU. They are connected via a pcie bus, but it shouldn't be too surprising that they don't use something super fancy given the fact that a Intel part talks to an AMD part. Anyway I remember clarkdale having a GPU and CPU die. They were on the same package. Would anyone argue that it's not an IGP? So I fail to see what makes the difference here. Of course those parts are much faster than all before existing IGPs. But that can't be the criteria, right? If you agree, I would move them back to integrated and disallow the usage in this stage.
  4. It's good to have this clear now, before someone makes a sad face at the end of the comp.
  5. I red now through the 8 pages of the design thread. Yeah, you didn't really receive any answer to your question. So I think the intention was, to only allow non eDRAM devices. I guess Alby wanted to see a high megahertz competition between different gens of k processors, and he especially wants to see some haswell action. So that's why, no broadwell allowed because they share the same socket 1150. But Intel integrated stuff is really complicated, having tons of different IGPs with strange names and CPU sockets. I remember the the i7 4770R, which is by definition of intel a desktop CPU, but bga and quite rare and expensive. I think properly tuned this can maybe eliminate the need of a ivy bridge score. And also other high end iris plus laptop parts could possibly see an advantage over ivy. It all depends on how much you can push ivy IGP under LN2. Back to my initial question, based on my theory above, the Chinese CPU creations aren't allowed in the comp, correct?
  6. I ordered such a CPU earlier this year, cause I have friend working in China, and luckily received a non ES one. Granted half of those ordered CPUs are ES chips.
  7. I didn't read through all of this, so this may have already answered. Stage 10 is divided by CPU socket. So Mobile chips can be used. There are some fancy Chinese CPU creations, having a mobile chip on a shim for LGA socket. It's basically a form of BGA to LGA adapter. Running a mobile chip in a desktop motherboard can yield some slight advantage, especially if you plan to run them under cold. But technically those are custom creations and thus are actually falling under the retail available hardware rule. On the other hand, the CPUs itselfs where retail available. It's just the shim that was created by third party and they are available to anyone who can organize the shipping from China. I just want to double-check that, hence I ask. https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?id=601707837844&spm=a21wu.9600033.recommend.1&main_itemid=569787869219&go_item_id=601707837844&pvid=e873a56b-b808-4a4c-a86e-19b08e3f2a48&utparam={"x_object_type"%3A"item"%2C"x_object_id"%3A601707837844}&scm=1007.20269.110938.1002003000000001

    Please add HW

    Seems there are at least two of them: http://www.cpushack.com/2018/07/03/cpu-of-the-day-the-intel-everest-series/ https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/blackops_6_core_460ghz/ https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/blackops_4_core_440ghz/
  9. Never heard of a A57 chipset. Is this something special? Maybe you could take a look under the heatsink? Added as Q57 until I know more https://hwbot.org/hardware/motherboard/2aa6/
  10. Sorry for the delay: https://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/radeon_hd_6550d__plus_hd_7670_dual_graphics/ https://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/radeon_r7_512_shaders__plus_r7_250_dual_graphics/ Also fixed some things: Radeon HD 6380G was incorrectly a hybrid socket, moved to integrated. Beavercreek is now Sumo core. Renamed the added devices from leeghoofd to fit the already used name scheme, e.g. Radeon HD XXX + HD XXX Dual Graphics
  11. I promise to add this category tomorrow. Was busy because due work...
  12. I never had this combination or any other hybrid device in front of me. So why it says 4 devices? Can you collapse the device list of GPU-Z? (maybe we should make that a screenshot requirement for any SLI / crossfire / hybrid stuff anyway)
  13. If we leave the limitation to Deneb and Suzuka, the only thing which can be unlocked is the CPU Cache and that wont make a difference with wprime. There are enough CPUs to choose anyway.
  14. Seem someone added CPU Core Deneb (6M) but never matched a real CPU to it. So it was actually empty and never used. I can create cpu cores with individual cache sizes though- if it was actually intended that way, no problem. However for now, I renamed Deneb (6M) to Suzuka and matched those Opteron 13xx parts to it. I also made Phenom II X4 840 and 850 a Propus.
