HWBOT Geekbench 3 - Multi-Core Benchmark Validation Regulations

Recommended Posts

The Ugly Truth of GeekBench 3:

 

GB3 is available for free only in 32-bit version.

One has to pay for 64-bit version.

Results between 32-bit and 64-bit versions differs greatly.

 

HWBOT Submission Engine doesn't recognize those versions types.

 

Outcome: people who bought Geekbench 3 and are able to run 64-bit versions are outperforming better systems of people who didn't buy the licence.

 

And that means the score is directly corresponding to licence type: Trial or Purchased.

 

Having this kind of rules at HWBOT means HWBOT is promoting buying GB 3 licenses.

So what's your solution? Only thing to solve this (without having to buy a key) is to create a 32 and 64bit ranking.

 

My two cents on the matter: people benching at a serious level will buy a key as they want to avoid the hassle of having to validate only via webbrowser and other stuff that are annoying to most of us. Usually the options that are unlocked by having a valid key is a plus for most competitive benchers.

I also dont see whats wrong with having to pay for a benchmark, these developers do have to put time and money into these benchmarks, I think we would see a lot more and a lot better benchmarks if people were willing to pay a little bit every once in a while. Why not support something you like using?

I have no problem with paying for the licence it was very cheap too cheaper than Futuremark licences.

They are Benchmarks not written by HWBot so HWBot has no control over the cost.

If you want to play you have to pay a small fee.

The cost is not prohibitive if it is you should find yourself a cheaper pastime.

Yep, I paid the $10 or whatever when I was a Novice for the Geek-Bench and I actually like this benchmrk as it scales well with the right timings of course. Now for Futuremark I wait for sales, bought Timespy about a month ago and still haven't used or installed it yet

Buy nothing. It's all free. Let me spell this out...if you missed it. 1. Download free/Tryout version of Geekbench 3 2. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Geekbench 3 3. Rename geekbench_x86_64.exe to geekbench_x86_32.exe 4. Open Geekbench 3 and Run Benchmarks 5. Get scores for the 64-bit benchmarks you just ran

Still need networking enabled, still worth buying the key to be able to strip windows
