OSiBS season 4 design thread

I'd have a question about r5/s3: are pcie cards allowed? Not that it should make a huge difference, since the CPU should be the bottleneck in 2003 but still interresting to know :)

I read it as they were allowed.

As I mentioned in my PM, this is a very good concept. But if you want to avoid someone using a not too old school 980ti or similar card, you should limit the round 5 stage 3 to agp or make an upper card limit if pci-x is allowed :D

I think the idea behind not limitting might be to ensure, that 2003 is a pure CPU bench?

I dont think it'd be too bad using a 980ti, since the relevant factor will most likely still be CPU/RAM, which is still old hardware :)

 

On that note: are dual socket 370 boards allowed for r2/s3 ? There are plenty availible with none- Intel chipsets...

3dm03 is the vga dependent bench. If you not limited vga i'm like to see the AM3 or 3dm01 for these round.

Who told you that 3DMark 2003 is a cpu benchmark?^^ It is the legacy 3D Benchmark that scales most on GPU power. If you run a 6800GT vs a 9800GT alone you will gain more than 100% on result most likely. Limiting GPU model for this is really needed :)

I'm like to see some my ideas)))))

# ok

 

//

 

 

ROUND 5 - Socket 754 (2003)

(No adapters allowed)

My bad , here.

I had a limitation for this stage , that was lost in transfer from my notes.

 

It's up to Nvidia 7xxx series

Both AGP and PCI-E allowed.

Just one question - would we be allowed to use slockets to run Socket 370 chips on Slot 1 non-Intel boards?

 

I hope so. :o

 

My initial thought was to make an effort for pure stages.

No adapters in any stage (if possible).

 

So my proposal is for socket 370 boards and cpu's only.

 

No Slot-1 , please.

:celebration:

As long as the general rule , about server products in competitions applies.

 

I want to follow hwbot guidance on this

No server hardware at all, we always clearly says desktop hardware only unless stated otherwise. ...

I actually enjoyed the dual Socket A cb2003 Last year, anderen since wprime is multithreading dualsocket would be Fun :)

Think it looks pretty good but one thing Id love to see changed would be to change socket 423 to 478 Willamette as we have used 423 a few times last years but never seen 478 Willamette in a competition :)

I second this, especcially since 478 boards and CPUs are easily obtainable, while the 423 counterparts are not :)

OK, I am very happy for the work all invested and especially thank Tasos for getting all together and making a concept that works out of it. I will not make any changes at this concept anymore apart from one, I will level chances between agp and pcix at stage 3 of round five by limiting card to NV 6xx0 series. The ATI stage is limited anyway to fastest agp ATI card available. same chances for all on this. On the Willamette 478, depending on how the contest works we might use this for a bonus round. Thanks again.

 

P.S. To explain this, fastest NV 7000 agp card is 7800GS- it is a lot slower than 7900GTX which makes the agp worthless. On 6000 series, agp and pcix cards are at same level. On ATI, we are limited to agp anyway, this means find fastest agp card and go, no messing around

We had socket 478 last year , that's why i chose socket 423 for this competition (socket 423 has the same Willamette core cpu's ... to be exact , it has only Willamette cores).

The concept is good, we will most likely start new year when all works like expected around 1st if 15th of january. Thanks for the awesome work especially to Tasos and all who made proposals that helped develop this :)

I think it pertains to the "Upgrade" boards that Asrock had out. Socket A to 754 I think they were.

Wish I had thought to get one. 754 in a modded NF7 might have been neat.

Mainly , to avoid Asrock "alchemies"

 

ASRock > K8Upgrade-NF3

ASRock > K8Upgrade-VM800

ASRock > K8Upgrade-1689

 

with this special card

ASRock > Products > am2cpu board

 

and also this one

ASRock > K8 Combo-Z

Hi guys.

For slot A stage allowed adapters?

 

The general idea , is to have pure stages.

We dont want ... and we dont need any kind of adapters

 

All we want is free time and a good mood ... to have fun !!!

 

No need to hunt lost unicorns.

 

Now

To be specific regarding your question.

 

I dont know of any kind of adapters from Slot-A to something else.

But if there is ... it's forbidden

:)
