Macci is AMD guy many years. I remember him from Phenom Agena days there, if Im correct.

What about Cinebench?! At COmputex Intel demostrated huge chip with 28-core, sample of future Cascade Lake-X. The board was bigger than eATX with crazy VRM. CPU must be cooled by chiller and power consumption was still over 800W. But nice clean 5 GHz. 
Threadripper LN2 demo with normal eATX board cooled by LN2 and 5.1 GHz run.

I cant imagine it will be much different from other AMD platforms...

RTC timer, see discussion in the other thread.
IMO not very bulletproof, easily cheatable, yet another requirement for a valid screenshot and the question how long should the timer run and what we accept as tolerance.

--> in other words way too complicated for what a small moderation team can handle and not safe either.

As those monster can run on Win7 too, all Win10 results need to get moderated. But well the chaos is already there. I really give up on this.

MSI has a special bios for Win7 support, not sure if all vendors will go that far. So yes we have another issue in moderation

Ah okay, didnt knew that. IMO this doesnt change anything. We still need to stay consistent. Either we allow all platforms on Win10 or we dont.

Not sure if this will help thing along, but will doing a video verification work? (at least showing that no BCLK change is made in the OS or by a button while the benchmark is running)

Think we reached a point Timothy's overlay thing could help a lot, but video will be a big hassle for you guys as the moderation team...

yes, my shaking hands, one hand with camera, second with LN2 and brain focused to "finish the render, finish the render, no BSOD!" :)
