Xeon lga771 processors are allowed but only on lga771 motherboards. quite right?

Well you are not the first one asking this, this could be valid for the last two stages that we can open it to single S771 too. (iniitally I wanted to avoid different sockets)

Maybe that could make some peeps happy. Let me make a poll and see what the outcome is. (tbh I don't like changing stuff during the competition, but it is early days:)

Poll thread is here: https://community.hwbot.org/topic/185231-xeon-s771-cpus-allowed-in-ddr2-for-stage-6-7/

In your DDR3/DDR4 benches, YOU have specified 1 card/1 GPU. Is the 9800 GX2 allowed as an SLI enabled card??

TAGG's score vs mllr's vs yours from OCN all show different settings on the links, not sure if that's what he means.

 

From looking at some other scores it looks like you ran at stock, but both TAGG and mllr changed settings, along with other users from other teams.

But I've never run 3dm11 physics so I could be wrong :)

the mandatory links display score is valid or default settings have been changed

then by comparing what is shown in the score details / settings details, you can see what was changed apparently.

i assumed the benchrun had all to run @ preset except tesselation and LOD, but I see that anisotropy and display resolution may have been changed (1280 x 720 seems default but you see 1280 x 960, 640 x 480, 1024 x 600). not sure if that concerns graphic benchmarks only or the physics as well ?

if an admin can clarify what is legit or not before I rebench...

thanks

test first if these have an impact on the physx score... even as soon as you run just the Physx test the benchmark will already tell you you have altered it...

There are no rules which state how this bench must be run, none that I have seen.  I tried all the presets and I toggled many of the different settings which are available...all made literally no difference.  I didn't find any of those settings which changed the benchmark result more than 1 or 2 points (which is the same variance you can get run to run anyway). 

Perhaps on a different generation platform the presets/settings would make a difference, but on 775 there was no gain for me.  Maybe we need to clarify the rules and specify how this should be run...

tried here, entry, perf or extreme, sliding pins have 0 impact.

seems locked indeed. well, makes life easier then !

thanks for confirming it
