Cheapaz Chips 3 - Rules Clarification

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, Ardamir here, a novice OC'er. This will be the first competition I'm taking part in, so I have a question about the rules. All is pretty clear, except this one part. "All results are the Graphics Score not the total". Clearly this concerns the 3DMark Benchmarks, since only they give a standalone graphics score, along with the others. Now everything seems fine in 3DMark11 and 3DMark (Skydiver), until you look at 3DMark06. 3DMark06 doesn't really have a Graphics Score section since it differentiates the scores in SM2.0, HDR/SM3.0 and CPU. Ok, so we're definately not submitting the CPU one, but what about the other 2? They both express graphics scores but can't be summed up in any way by the benchmark. So, in the end, what are we submitting for 3DMark06? Can we get a mod here to clarify? Well, here's me hoping that you don't submit the total score, cause my R5 1400 can't really compete on physics with the 5GHz Intel chips.... P.S Sorry if my english is not great at some points, not my first language.

@Leeghoofd @GeorgeStorm Are we still going with graphics score for this? I know we said that mods would just keep in mind that it's for the comp but I see that the rules have also been changed to not include the line about graphics score only. Also if it is graphics score only which GT do we want to count for 3dm06?

Only hd 5450 or all gpu based on Cedar can be used?

[/quote] All Cedar GPU's. Essentially its the same chip as the one on the 5450 though, I checked it. Here is a list of the Chedar chips. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/amd-cedar.g113

All cedar cores, although 5450 is likely the easiest to find

Until the judges clarify it seems that people are subbing the total score, you'll be at  disavantage with your 1400 but the gpu is very weak and still holds the score back a whole lot

Leeghoofd replied this to my PM and I thought I should share it here. "talked to George we go for the graphics score, only 3DMark06 is total score, due to the issues you mentioned" Thanks to everyone for helping out with that issue!
