The competition page says open to everyone but here in the thread it says only up to enthusiast tier. Which is correct?

Will be kinda disappointed if I cant participate because I submitted a handful of ice bucket scores years ago...

it menstioned everywhere Rookie, Novice and enthusiast only. It's open to all CPUs, meaning Intel as well as AMD users can chime in...

First day of competition we have reached 5.9ghz validations.  By the time we reach the end of competition we may see subs anywhere between 6ghz to 6.2ghz, may be 6.5ghz ambient frequency validations...

One suggestion, at least for the next two stages,  keep the frequency limited to 5g or 5.2g so that this competition truly remains as ambient. There is no way cooling can be verified, BUT IF THE FREQUENCY IS LIMITED TO 5G AND ASK FOR A DIFFERENT BENCH OTHER THAN FREQENCY, this competition will remain as ambient...( we are seeing apprentice league subs now).

One more suggestion, you can have this competition in two categories LN2 & other than LN2, so that at least all guys of apprentice league will get an opportunity to compete. Because they can't compete with LN2, they are not allowed to compete in so called ambient category...

Imo fixed frequency is something you can do when everyone uses the same cpu, it doesn't make much sense to me in this case.

Also cooling has to be verified by video and photo of the system running so i think it should be fine like that.

Stage 2 will include temperature monitoring by itself due to the benchmark used. So we won't really have a problem there. As for Stage 1 we can see the CPU Temperature in most CPU-Z Validations and if there is further proof required we will ask for videos.

CPU-Z was mainly chosen as Stage 1 because we will have a lot of new people and we want to make it as easy as possible.

Pros.
Also consider limiting the operating system.

In cpu -z,temperatures are not available in the validation, if it is done private & extreme oc both selected and save the validation file. In the top 4 scores 3 scores don't show cpu temperatures. I am not pointing to any one but its difficult to check the  cpu temperature.

example: validation attached.

videos can be manipulated, edited...depends on the skill of the person.

Day 1 we are @ 5.9ghz.  Wait for few more days, what I said will definitely make sense.

Hello everyone!

Just want to ask something & clarification before it went too far, so the limitation is "Must use commercially / retail available components."

It's mean, the mobile systems (Notebook / Gaming Laptop) IS ALLOWED to participate?

 

If it allowed, maybe easier to encourage Indonesian ppl to join & participate. 😀
Considering we are here, many don't have a desktop PC lately. Due to pandemic, Crypto making all component shortage & skyrocketing prices.

Many thanks for the answer. 😃

On the positive side, never seen such a response for any competition in recent years on hwbot. Crazy response. 166 submissions already.  Probably we may see 500 submissions(cpu frequency is the easiest bench to run). It's definitely fun. I'm in.

Hello guys I need help. When I tried to submit my benchmark result it shows an error message.
The error message is "Processor is required for 2D benchmarks!"
I'm using AMD Ryzen 3 2200G.
Please guide me on how can I overcome this problem.
