I was wondering why the overall score including CPU is used for TimeSpy.

Wouldn't a gpu score only category be more suitable to compare video cards? Should be no problem if we still run the cpu test and not allow custom runs.

 

The current TimeSpy scores are a system score and do not really belong into only the "videocards" or "processors" category. A 3090 paired with a 6 core could score lower than a 2080 with 16 core cpu for example.

And if we only count only the GPU score, you sure it does not scale with processor architecture? A 3D scores will only be pure GPU IF the tested GPU is fully maxed by the benchmark and/or we impose low CPU clockspeeds

Correct, this would not eliminate cpu bottlenecks and the same gpu will still perform different depending on the cpu model and tuning.

The intention is to have a clearer view of gpu performance within these two benchmarks. When going for top gpu score it is common to run 1ccx no smt and ignore cpu score.

This results in a couple extra gpu points and is the way some of the top gpu scores are achieved. This is also interesting for firestrike.

 

Would still be understandable to not add an extra category to prevent a split. Maybe adding seperate overall, cpu and gpu fields to the existing category would be more sensible. This way it would be similar to 3dmarks result page where you can choose combined/gpu/cpu.

 

OT.

probably has been discussed already, cinebench results with deactivated ccx (5900x with 6c/12t) will not be counted as 6 core cinebench result by rules or bench mate limitations? Example: https://hwbot.org/submission/4742496_sonicsalad_cinebench___r23_multi_core_with_benchmate_ryzen_9_5900x_11203_pts

No. It is a 12c/24t processor.

Not allowed to core down to fit into another category. Already in the general rules.

Thanks!

 

Is it allowed to load valid results from the autosave folder and take the screenshot some time later?

My best overall score was from before I used hwbot. The hardware is the same except a second radiator.

Smells like forging a result, but would be cool if it counts.

6800 1st

current ranking

Might be able to recreate it with older drivers etc.

Luckily this is the only result where I left info in the description, that should help. :cool:

just beat it! https://hwbot.org/submission/4745661_sonicsalad_3dmark___time_spy_radeon_rx_6800_17198_marks?recalculate=true
