Remembering Turrican: Bench for a good cause (and buy a T-shirt)

Recommended Posts

ES allowed in Stage 1 ? :)

 

EDIT:

Can i use GPU for bench and what will be count for age, system CPU age or GPU age ?

EDIT2: Or if used CPU for calculation count CPU age if GPU used count GPU age and in both case better is oldest CPU or GPU ?

I guess that ES is allowed, at least from 3770k generation or lower...

 

If you use GPU for calculation, only counts the lower time..not matter the GPU generation that your use. If you use CPU for calculation, the age of it counts for the ranking.

I am not sure you understand me right because:

"In the first stage, "Turrican's Choice", the oldest hardware wins"

 

If i use gpu to calculate the Stage 1 bench what age will be taken gpu or cpu ? ;)

 

Edit: I gues i can't use GPU for calculations, i see at submision it says "GPUPI for CPU - 1B" and for stage 2 is GPUPI - 1B. Can someone confirm i cant use VGA to calculatgein stage 1

On 1st stage only counts CPU, the calculation should be done with CPU.

 

Check this on the discussion thread:

 

" The first stage is called "Turrican's choice" and focuses on old hardware. Run GPUPI in 1B on the oldest CPU possible and overclock the hell out of it afterwards. The oldest chip with the fastest run wins! Yes, you know you wouldn't stand a chance if Karl could participate.*"

I always bench for fun first.;)

Karl was a hardware hero, an icon to me. Incredible amount of knowledge.

Alex (Antinomy) is much the same. Now don't go gettin a big head or anything buddy. :D

Frontpage news finally! Thanks for your support tiborrr, it's very much appreciated. :)

 

Regarding the prizes, we have separated stage 1 and stage 2 so all the oldschool benchers won't need R9 290's to grab some loot (and the other way round). Without further ado, lets bench!

 

Btw, the first shirts are being printed as we speak and will very soon be shipped.

Can't get this Bench to run on Win7 x64.

Installed the Lastest Catalyst Driver & vcredist_x64.exe still get the MSVCP120.dll error.

 

Was I supposed to install anything else.?

Help Please....

vcredist_x86.exe and AMD APP SDK v2.7 here worked fine for the FX-55

vcredist_x86.exe is the right one for the bench (and for any other 32 bit application running on 32 bit or 64 bit OS!).

Thanks guys.

Installing vcredist_x32.exe fixed it.

 

 

Although @_mat_ I think you should clarify on the FAQ page that even just trying to run GPUPI requires both vcredist instead of just 64 bit one.

Atleast that's how it was for me.

TASOS, yes, my processor Intel® Celeron® Processor 2.00 GHz, 128K Cache, 400 MHz FSB revision D1. What prevents him take the appropriate rating?

There is not enough data , in hwbot database about certain cpu's.

So , somebody has to add them manually ... and that takes time.

 

It's not only your result , there are more.

 

They will fix it soon.

Thanks for pointing that out. I have clarified this much butter (and in aggressive red ;)) now.
