Keep all current benches and add GPUpi v3.3 (or 4.0 when it comes out) and Time Spy Extreme. Remove some or all of Catzilla because the vendor support is flaky to nonexistent.

While Catzilla used to be my thing (and probably gives a decent portion of my current points - Yup, 4/15 globals, and 1/40 of my hardware apparently), it's been a bug ridden mess since 3.3.  Removing points from Catzilla and giving GPU Pi v3.3 as well as Time Spy Extreme such would be a nice move that provides good balance for points (3 removed, 3 gained) AND show more support to those companies that are actually willing to improve their products...  They also have a reasonable amount of support for various generations of graphics cards.

 

Also, GPU Pi only has annoying cheesy dubstep EDM if you put on a playlist for such, while Catzilla you're forced to have audio drivers to get max points, and forced to listen if you want to hear cues a run is having a problem before graphics glitches (or a system lockup) hit.

Hi, sorry but are you saying am3*has a score boost with audio driver ?

I've barely run AquaMark3 and never made mention of that bench, so no idea where you'd get the impression I was talking about it...

You are right, i have confused it with catzilla, sorry

Thanks all for casting your votes. All Catzilla benchmarks will be disabled for hardware points, and GPUPI v3.3 - 1B, GPUPI v3.3 - 32B and 3DMark - Time Spy Extreme will be eligible for points in the next update. ETA this week.

If we are removing Catzilla's points on the basis of being buggy and lack of dev support, then every single legacy GPU bench should lose points. Or you can get someone to create a wrapper. But this is beyond ridiculous to completely scrap a bench's points because of 3 people's opinion.

I thought GPUPi V3.3 was going to be soon obselete when Mat releases V4 with new GUI?

Not obsoleted but renamed / merged

for GPUPI 3.3 -> 4 all we need to do is make sure when 4 is available, its publicised that there will be a cut off for old score submissions, then when thats up, only v4 can be uploaded, its been done with numerous benchmarks before.

Please MAKE sure that the legacy version is also counted. It blows BIG chunks when you see XX video card with 25 points but the current version no longer supports THAT video card.

IE- NVidia GTX-2xx - GTX-5xx/6xx IIRC :)

Agreed - Legacy pieces should be supported and perhaps as it is with the two versions themselves to simply have a normal and legacy heading in the rankings for each once the update is completed.

Ooooh, does this mean CPU runs of GPU Pi v3.3 will also get points?

I don't think so, only GPU runs will be eligible for points.

Seems kind of silly to give JUST the GPU's points for v3.3.  If you're going to have a bench that can do CPU and GPU, and it's already listed in the benches you can run why not give points to both?

You speculate.

I see nothing anywhere that leans toward this.

Think just that this is the 3D thread and there's no mention of 3.3 gaining points in the 2D thread.

2D/3D GPUPI 3.3 will be replaced anyway by 4.0 soon according the designer... Since their outputs are totally not compatible with the 3.2 or lower scores we decided to keep the points for the numerous 3.2 or older versions.
