Memory maximum frequency

Is there a percentage we can work with from valid to screenshot ( I forget what is normally used )

yes sir ASRock, 2% btn screenie and validation file (the latter counts ofc) was the standard, but with current memory speeds 1% might be more relastic. Wha t do you guys think

Any ideas for extreme r15. There is no way to avoid covering the render. This is at 1920x1080

With AMD/Nvidia new cards you can upscale the resolution of your monitor.

Nvidia DSR and I don't remember for AMD.

VSR on AMD. 260X and newer.

Other than that, you need a 4K monitor.

we have to double the screenies than, one full screen with the score and rendered scene, add a 2nd with required CPUz and the CB screen bit moved to the right..

Wasnt the idea of having to show the full render to stop cheats modifying it to get a boost in the score.

How the hell can that be legal the right side and bottom half of the render is off the screen in both shots bring on the cheats.

Hence why it is a beta, we just want to see how it performs, so sad that immediately we think of cheating...

Alby I dont admire your job of moderating scores and making sure everything is above board I was just pointing out the obvious.

I myself wont be submitting it until I have a monitor for it.

Two screens as you laid out seems like a perfectly acceptable workaround to test this bench for the compo :)

rendered scene is not full. we had a discussion on our forums  and full image can be fit only in 2k resolution. for cpu-z tabs little space is needed. so 2715*1527 fits evrything comfortably. now i am using 2880*1620.

all new nvidia cards starting from gtx 970 onwards  support it.(DSR) and all amd cards starting from r7 260 series.(VSR).

most subs (almost 70% )should go either because image blocked or rendered image not full. how about having a rule, what to be accepted.

another way is just to ignore everything since it's beta bench.......

Tested as suggested with DSR on a GT 710 (fish),looks the way to go.
