Country Cup 2021 Planning Thread


Recommended Posts

Now that TC is over its a good time for the community to start suggesting stages for country cup. Should help keep us occupied while leeg is busy moderating scores. 

Anyways for my suggestions I think some basics, should be a 32m stage, igp stage, ycruncher stage at minimum. Also should keep it to newer hardware as is tradition for cc

 

Comment below your thoughts and whatever you're thinking

As we are now finally moving on from Skylake I'd like to see a "bye bye Skylake" stage one sub per generation 6th - 11th gen. Ideally something fun that really shows the singlecore IPC differences like Pifast or SP1M but SP32M would fit the bill as well imo.

Cinebench single core, maybe? Like R15

Also, y-cruncher was fun to bench. Wanna see more of it 😋

For gpu, TSE would be a good addition

^Everything above is only about modern stuff, please, dont force us to run TSE on 775/am2🙏

Probably make all stages BenchMate-enabled? I don't really like BM but as it should be our future, let CC2021 be another testdrive for benchmate. I suppose it will limit hardware to 478+/754+ but I don't think many are interested in too old hardware anyway.

Yes, cc is usually new. Tbh I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't any stages that ddr4 wasn't allowed.

Wouldn't 11th gen need to be excluded since it's not based on Skylake?

If Benchmate is required, I'm out. F that noise.

We will do XTU 2 only

I'm back in, baby!

I know it's a joke but I like XTU 2 more than Benchmate.

Ain't a joke to me.

Sounds like comp needs to be all benchmate ;)

Would be nice & easy for newbies, and pretty comfortable to bench in general, that's for sure. However when it comes to maximum like LN2 - it puts spokes in wheels...

 

How about some junkie stages, like "Only 6GHz+ submissions", restore "DOGPILE", or maybe do "Slowest GPUPI, or SuperPi"? Sounds like fun :D

If there is no place for that - how about "only motherboard IGP" stage? Can be fun to tweak & mod.

I like the idea of Gma, but honestly I think cc should stay ddr3+

6+ would be cool but I think being able to sub on ambient is nice. Slowest score is interesting 

Dog pile I'd enjoy cause always nice to bring out collection but again idk about in the comp...

CC 2021: dogpile XTU 2? 😁

Slowest score is not CC IMO. Some of us have summer holidays with friends and beer to be drank when CC is happening.

Maybe a stage on ambient is good, but also need things to the extreme.

GPU GpuPi is always a fresh change from normal 2D or 3D also.

I've always enjoyed benches that consisted of stages like:

5x Highest BenchX score, using 1/2/3/4/5/6/8 etc. cores

5x Highest BenchX score, using 4 core cpus, different sockets only.

5x Highest BenchX score, using different chipsets/GPU familes....


Oh, I just thought of this one.

Fastest Spi32M score, using 9-9-9-20 4000MHZ memory (ie, dictate the timings and maybe frequency)

 

Just don't go too wild this time. Covid has ruined logistics, so getting last minute hardware is going to be a pain.
