Hello guys, Ardamir here, a novice OC'er. This will be the first competition I'm taking part in, so I have a question about the rules. All is pretty clear, except this one part. "All results are the Graphics Score not the total". Clearly this concerns the 3DMark Benchmarks, since only they give a standalone graphics score, along with the others. Now everything seems fine in 3DMark11 and 3DMark (Skydiver), until you look at 3DMark06. 3DMark06 doesn't really have a Graphics Score section since it differentiates the scores in SM2.0, HDR/SM3.0 and CPU. Ok, so we're definately not submitting the CPU one, but what about the other 2? They both express graphics scores but can't be summed up in any way by the benchmark. So, in the end, what are we submitting for 3DMark06? Can we get a mod here to clarify? Well, here's me hoping that you don't submit the total score, cause my R5 1400 can't really compete on physics with the 5GHz Intel chips.... P.S Sorry if my english is not great at some points, not my first language.
Welcome to Cheapaz Chips Season 3! (UPDATE ON RULES) This time round, the target is the AMD Cedar core, and users are expected to mod their cards to push them to the limits in the following benches: 3DM11 Entry (graphics score) Heaven Basic 3DMark Skydiver (graphics score) 3DMark 06 (Total score counts) The numbers that matter are the graphics scores (only 06 is total score), not the overall so don't worry if you don't have a beefy cpu, it's all down to the GPU. You may need to disable points for the sub so it doesn't muck up the standard rankings. The rules: Must use a single Cedar based GPU (e.g HD 5450) CPU max. core count of 4. (Disabling cores allowed) CPU Mhz cannot exceed 5003Mhz (freq monitoring via HWINFO, running in the background during the benchmark) Must use the competition background Must include a picture of the modded card and system used for the competition Screenshots should meet general hwbot rules (plus HWINFO monitoring tool showing CPU freqs during the run) All 3DMark scores must include a link with a valid score on 3dmark.com (thus no LOD and co allowed) Enjoy! (and if things don't work please let me know) Edit: Background can be found here (thanks to @Leeghoofd😞
