    Flashing a different GPU BIOS

    Ok. I'll delete it and submit it as an RX Vega 64 score. Thanks for your replies. 🙂
  2. So...I'm able to flash a Vega Frontier Edition 8GB BIOS on my RX Vega 64 reference card. Which works and allows me to use the Radeon Pro drivers. Which lets me score like 4x higher in the SPECviewperf 12 Creo Subtest 11, than when running an RX Vega 64 BIOS and using the Radeon Gaming drivers. Is my score legit? Yes/no? Why/why not? If it is legit, am I supposed to submit it as a Vega Frontier Edition score, or an RX Vega 64 score? I've read the rules and I really don't understand how to interpret them. What exactly is "emulating" another model? Is it exactly what I've done? Is it that as long as it's just for more cores/shaders, higher power limits, tighter memory timings, and such it's fine to use a different(or modded) BIOS? But it's not fine for other purposes(like to be able to use different drivers)? Where's the line being drawn exactly? And again...why? I don't get it. At all. Please explain. Thanks!

    HWBOT 3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Validation Regulations

    I just found a patch that fixes the "3DMark2001 SE was not able to detect 128MB of memory" problem and automatically sets the CPU affinity to 1. Making running this app quite a bit easier on modern systems. Here's a link to the post on VOGONS.org where I found it: http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=33579&start=20#p411805 Here's the download link to the install.bat: http://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?id=17360 Here's the link to the uninstaller for the patch(if you have problems uninstalling "3DM2001SE Compatibility Fix" with Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features): http://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?id=17928 I've tested the patch and the uninstaller and both worked perfectly. Enjoy!

    HWBOT Aquamark3 Benchmark Validation Regulations

    Ok...I figured out what the problem is. Disabling System Info DOES NOT fix it. The problem is with the size of the verification file being too big. The way you make sure it isn't too big is by NOT ADJUSTING THE SCREENSHOT QUALITY TOO HIGH...UNLESS YOU ARE GOING TO SAVE IT AS A JPG. IF YOU ARE SAVING IT AS A PNG YOU NEED TO HAVE THE QUALITY SET AT LEAST 2 DOTS BELOW HIGHEST. Having the screenshot quality set too high while saving it as a PNG causes the verification file to be too big. If you save it as a JPG you can max out the screenshot quality setting. Again...having System Info enabled does not cause a problem. For proof see the verification screenshot of my score saved as a PNG(@ 2 dots below max quality) with System Info enabled. ashttp://hwbot.org/submission/3613535_mrgenius_aquamark_radeon_r9_280x_366793_marks
