marco.is.not.80 Posted June 28, 2019 Share Posted June 28, 2019 (edited) Guys/Girls, I now have a tick because of this benchmark. Can someone please share with me what the revolutionary frackin' secret is to getting some of the epic scores from this comp: https://hwbot.org/competition/Challenger 2019 Division I round 2/stage/4616_unigine_heaven_-_basic I've put in 4 days of trying everything you can imagine and I get the same score no matter what within 30 to 40 points. Realizing that this is a severely CPU limited benchmark I have tried: - maximum memory frequency all the way up to around 4700 Mhz and got the same score. - lowest possible timings at 12-12-12-28 CR1 with good subtiming configuration and got the same score. - spent an entire day on BCLK although I noticed none of the of guys I'm competing against were doing that but what the hell. 102 x 49, 105, etc. made no difference. - must be timer related, right? Windows 7, Windows 10 pre 1809 with 3 mhz TSC timer and Windows 10 post 1809 with the 10 mhz FrankenTimer - doesn't matter - same score. - maybe some 16 GB Double Sided sticks will do some magical hocus pocus - ya... no. The only thing that would move my score was upping the core of my processor past 5 ghz which is over the amount that the competition allows. So what the fuck is the magic sauce that is allowing shit like 9650.75 DX9 Marks? I tried all the LOD hacks, etc. just in case somehow they made a difference but like I said - CPU limited but literally have run out of ideas and could use some insight before I pluck my eyes out and feed them to my turtle.
