Hi, as country cup starts tomorrow I'd like to make sure that I know what each stage is and what is allowed before I buy any new hw. For stage 1 it 8 different intel cpu subfamilies. Does this mean i9, i7, i5, etc or is this generations like kabylake, skylake, haswell, ivy bridge, etc.? Then for stage 4 it needs 4 seperate gcn1 model gpus. So for example r9 280x, r9 280, 7970, and 7950 is good and we don't need seperate actual chips (tahiti xt, tahiti pro, tahiti le)? Also going along with that question is HD 8000 series allowed and are firepros allowed? Neither are server hw, and technically did retail although you could not buy hd 8000 outside of a prebuilt pc and firepro is enterprise workstation class even if it's not server hw. For stage 5 I assume vega is allowed. (not sure why it shouldn't be, just thought I'd make sure) The only other thing is on each of the actual stage pages they don't have any details about the stage except to list the end date, which is in December. However on the rules page everything is listed as ending in November. As well as the overview page still claiming the last stage is multi-gpu when it is not. (Copy paste FTW!) Kinda a long post with lots of questions, but I figured may as well get all this clarified early, especially if the end dates in the rules are the correct ones.
