Country Cup 2018

Recommended Posts

Country Cup will happen... but no Aussie participation this year, IPs and accounts will be blocked... so no need for internal war

 

New rule to be added , only members who participated in Team Cup can submit to Country Cup....

As if we don't have VPNs and a dozen accounts each ;)

 

We're still getting over the emu war.

Matt's had a legitimate question that he just had a bit of a joke with, it wasn't offensive, it was light hearted

Thanks Alby for the info also

Not having too many stages with the same hw as last year would be my only suggestion

I'll agree with this, also rather enjoyed the 32B stage from last year (though I suspect I might be the only one)

Alby if you can't be fucked making a new cc (and im sure you're a busy dude  dealing with  our bullshit all day) just grab an old one, change the hw a little, easy peasy.

no Matt I want to add a rollercoaster bench so Neil can chime in 😛

Neil's speciality is the benchmark that takes 45+ mins to complete so he can watch F1 while pouring every 20mins. So a stage like that would be great? 

 

Maybe amd 32m full out?

I at least enjoyed finding obscure hw for it. Wish I'd been able to get my 8970 in time for it though.

I think I can echo what most people said which is to mix up the hardware if possible, if only to negate the effect of people who found hw for last year being able to just dust it off and run a new bench.

That said, I also wouldn't mind a 6x GCN1 stage as well, my 8970 is chomping at the bit 😁

Also as always I'd like to see an igp round, although pre-ddr4 and maybe pre-ddr3/no fm2/+ so that it's not a straight rehash of TC.

Only other thing I'd like to see personally is no titans, no 2011+ xeons, and no rtx 2000 series to keep the potential buy in price for stages from ballooning too much.

Actually I've been meaning to try and get XP working on AM4, you can get PCIe sata+usb cards that claim to support XP so it should be possible, just got better things to do for the next month.

More seriously, cheapaz-style stages would be cool - stuff that forces people to use crap hardware and mod it.  EG a 3D Dx11 stage (sky diver?) specifying a GPU that uses DDR3, a 2D stage specifying Intel G31 chipset, possibly another intel mobile stage like TC a few years ago.  A retro server/workstation hardware stage (or one where it's a viable option) would be good too - for example 3Dmark Vantage with the only restriction being that you have to use DDR2 for system memory could be really interesting.

Also pls no rtx

1030, 1050 and 1050Ti TimeSpy was very interesting last year.
