    Socket 603/604 Hall of Fame

    I think he meant that the first post of this page needs an update. @richba5tard Could you fix the first post? (and hopefully take this forum thread on someday to the main page)

    please add video card

    Its already there. Even it might be a little bit hidden. https://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/radeon_r5_m330__m430__radeon_520/

    Please Add CPU to database

    Damn I could swear I catched all of those K10 CPUs. But hey, there was also the 615e missing. https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/athlon_ii_x4_610e/ https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/athlon_ii_x4_615e/

    Which socket 370 motherboard?

    I was always looking at this list: http://holicho.lib.net/wcpuidv3/wcpuidv3.htm I saw some special made boards and they used TurboPLLs on Tusl/Cusl and ST6. https://web.archive.org/web/20020613021345/http://isweb32.infoseek.co.jp/computer/atomoc/mb_st6.htm https://web.archive.org/web/20030829142535/http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/ha/id25302/cusl2.html https://web.archive.org/web/20021016083001/http://holicho.lib.net/ But youre correct. Using this on boards which cant run bus speeds asynchronous just dont make sense. So after looking into this today, I think the only fixed input from the pll is for the clock / system time and they used the pll ic to remove the limit of the onboard pll ic. And some have fixed frequency for usb an ps/2. I think I got this wrong for some years now. So today I really learned something. Now you and other achieved over 260 Mhz without any pll mods. So this makes me wonder why the japanese boys were so keen on those turbo plls if its actually possible without.

    Which socket 370 motherboard?

    Didn't some of them did a pll mod for their boards? I guess that should completely take out the problems with the PCI/agp bus. Thanks for your suggestions. Wish I had time to overclock those systems again.

    I used many IDE drives in the past and every of them managed to let me achieve over 200 MHz FSB. If you struggle at 155 MHz, it's most likely your CPU. Only a few CPUs manage over 200 MHz on air. Most need at least SS to achieve this. But for some it's just impossible. I appreciate all those great tips in this thread. I really never thought that those cheap IDE to SATA adapters are able to handle the high PCI clocks very well. Even though I own such things, I was always too lazy to try out.

    HWBOT Rev8 going live now.

    Ah now I see this. Yes this is an old bug. Appeared already multiple times in the past. IMO it's a problem how the bot handles name strings. For some reason the bot isn't able to handle exact strings. If there is something similar, it just chooses this It's like the search engine had always a bug if you search for users. Like you search for submissions from user "blablabla". If there is also a user "Blabla". The bot just shows subs from him. But the are no results from the actual "blablabla" query.

    HWBOT Rev8 going live now.

    This is correct. Raven CPUs are Zen gen1. AMDs Marketing Team decided to give them 2000er numbers. Zen+ aka Zen gen 2 will have 3000er numbers BTW.

    hwbot "classic" rev8

    Well the problem of global and wr points is that they are really big. While you just can get maximum 50 hardware points, it is possible to receive over 160 points for globals and 170 points for worldrecord points. In other words an active bencher which posts some high quality scores with big points can be #1 in career ranking and in seasonal ranking at the same time and he can achieve this in some months (hypothetical). I think the career ranking should reflect the effort made over some longer time and not just some months. Currently those 30 slots for hardware / global / WR fill up too quickly with current made results because global / WR points have a so much bigger influence. Regarding comp points: I think its sad that the effort made in previous years diminishes. Seasonal ranking gives the chance to see the current level of a bencher while career shows what he did over the time. Its 10 slots for those points. If we shift up hardware point slots it should not have a too big impact anymore.

    Well the point is that I didnt see too much constructive criticism in this thread. Just complaints. If you want that Frederik does change something in your direction you have to give him something he can work with. I mean it should be clear if Frederik just receives negative feedback of his work, he probably doesnt see the point to spend time on hwbot. Which ultimately means that hwbot close his doors forever.

    What is a Vega 56 Nano?

    Well I think AMD had actually the intention to release it. At least it was rumored and I really thought it gets released. However, I think AMD did not introduce another marketing name for it when the powercolor nano got released, so I guess it can be deleted from our db.

    So the culprit is just the seasonal team ranking? I think this can be easily changed back to an all time ranking again. I dont see why this needs to be seasonal. Actually first I thought the seasonal ranking just add more complexity but the more I think about it the more I like the idea. The seasonal ranking idea has the advantage to attract new benchers to easily climb up. I mean hwbot is over 10 years old, if the ranking would be static for all times, newcomers see those thousand and thousands of points and give up early. Cause it makes a difference if you had 10 years time to bench those gazillion hardware / benchmark combinations or just some months. However the current approach to calculate the career points needs to get tweaked. As currently, if you have benched a lot of current gen hardware, you are way too good in the career ranking which pisses people who are here for a long time. As we all know, there is a new hardware generation coming each year, and each year world records gets beaten by new hardware. If I take a look at the profile of splave http://uat.hwbot.org/user/splave/#Points I see that his seasonal ranking doesnt differ much from his career ranking which leaves the question why having two rankings if it acutally doesnt look much different. So my proposal is to remove global points from career ranking and increase the submissions taken into account for the ranking, maybe to 50 hardware and 30 competition. Just to make a difference between one year and 10 years contribution to the bot. The seasonal ranking is a nice idea. But you also have to see that points get zeroed every year. So it might be also a good idea to create new achievements like best overclocker 2017 or something. And introduce rankings or leader boards for the last years. So we all could see who was the best of 2010 or something.

    Please add old IIT 3c87 FPU processor

    Well that is something unique for sure. However if I understand correctly, those Co processors can just work with a main CPU. Is any program able to detect those combos? I mean, I dont know if it makes sense to add co processors at all to the db, probably need another opinion from Antinomy here.

    Dead links on uat. Is anywhere else a description how those points come together (for the users)?

    Okay misunderstood the focus then. As no one replied after your RFC, I should say that it was just my personal impression that we should make the point algorithm easier. As I thought that the many broken rankings are because of this too complex algorithm. My personal motivation has been always the points I got in a ranking. I never cared too much about my ranking in a league. So thats the reason my focus seems to be different from the other guys. If rankings could get fixed and work more reliably, plus the socket ranking pages, I would be very satisfied.
