Small update,

I talked to Pasi from UL,

usage of the latest Timespy version 2.6.6174 dating from October 8, 2018. Usage of the Systeminfo 5.13, dating from September 28, 2018

There might be an updated Systeminfo later down the road, but not for the upcoming weeks

Take note that all suspicious scores will be screened by the crew of UL Benchmarks via the datafile

 

Happy benching!

Hi,

Just wanna ask about memory restrictions rule, which is "Galax HOF OC Lab Edition DDR4 4600 CL 19 only". So i assume with this rule, all submission to this competition must use the Galax HOF OC Lab Edition DDR4 4600 CL 19 only?

Or can I use another GALAX memory for 3D submmision?

 

- For 2D benchmarks can we use another brand / GALAX VGA? Like GT 730?!

- For TS & TSE is it total score / graphics score only? If graphics score only, can I run as a custom run?!

I talked to Uncle MAd and he allows any Galax videocard for the 2D benchmarks based on CPU speed (stage 1 and 2)

Rules state:

Galax 4600CL19 and 2080 Ti as hardware restriction:  this means no other gpus or Galax memory versions, no matter the bench.

It is GPU score only so you can select custom, but no alteration in the benchmark settings.

Ah OK.
1 more question to making sure the things.., I must include GPUz window in 2D benchmark submission to verify we are using the Galax RTX 2080Ti ?!
Because i think there's no Windows XP driver for RTX at the moment (if someone use Windows XP capable boards for 2D benchmarks). Thus, GPUz will show Generic 'Microsoft Basic Display Adapter' detection.

Thanks for the answer. 😃😄

On all benches VGA understands that Galax HOF OC Lab Edition 2080 ti can be used
Stage 1: SuperPI 32 m
Stage 2: Memory Frequency
Do I have to use Galax HOF OC Lab Edition 2080 ti on this bench?

I'm curious if anyone else has had their hardware delayed from Galax. Theres been some sort of production delay on my GPU pot, (GPU backplate as well, but obviously not necessary for benching). I spoke with Gary from Galax via email and he stated that if there's enough request by those affected that they would consider extending the contest deadline. Just looking to get a headcount on people who are still waiting on hardware.

  • Stage 4: 3DMark TimeSpy Extreme, GPU score only
  • Stage 5: 3DMark TimeSpy, GPU score only

We just need run GT1 and GT2 or need  complete the entire test?

Hi,

" Screenshot must contain CPU-Z CPU, memory and SPD tab and GPU-Z for 3D stages "
For 3D stage only main GPU-Z or also sensor TAB ?

I'm still waiting my pot and backplate to start benching... as I don't have any other galax video card.... 
I hope to get it soon, less than 10 day for this high level contest, with work, family... and as we all spent 2000$ on galax hardware I guess we all hope to have enough time to bench it properly.

By the way, the OCer who got practice in GALAX OC LAB are alowed to join the qualification ? are the qualified already for final ?

GL to everyone.

Still waiting for GPU and Mems here :D 
I assume SPD should be shown on all stages as we got to use the same kit on all of them.

As far as I know, the only people that qualified are the winners from previous years + Rauf for winning the qualifier in 2017.

Maybe one week extension would not hurt anyone i guess. Btw you can use ekwb gpu pot with g92 mounting and longer screws for rtx 2080ti :) Raptor 3 and 4 should work as well, tek 9 fat needs new bracket...

Should be 50-48-46 like previous years

...

For GPU-Z also include sensor tab for verification

...

I'll extend the qualifier one week

I I think many people have bought more than two kits,Why limit their use?

My bad; meant that we got to use the new mems for all stages and that older ones are not allowed.
