Bug alert: Geforce 8800 Ultra, Geforce 8800M GTX and Geforce 8800M GTS are listed at the competition description as "applicable VGA cards", but not at any stage description.

 

Thanks for the report. Fixed now.

This gone be awesome, classic line for a contest is always welcome.

 

Not IB, I agree... disable cores is allowed?

Naaah. Let's not allow Ivy :).

 

Massman, we've already sold our Sandies (the last one these days -)), so you're closing the door at least for one team.

Let's allow Ivys? (anyway still have to get those somewhere) :)

We only get our retail Ivys at 29th of April... how can you include them in a competition ? :P

 

With Sam onboard this is going to be a breeze.... It will be the world against Kenny's expertise !!

I think Massman should disable Ivy from this competition :)

 

It's too new? For some teams it's too expensive i think ...

I can sense it will be fun competion :-) I'm really glad, that I recently bought 4 8800 Ultra cards ^^ They will be of use now.

I also vote for disabling Ivy.

dude I see you're writing in rhyme .. this contest is shit so I will pass it by

3D is too much about CPU .. top scores will go down way too soon

when Ivy comes out you'll see for yourself .. you'll have to rebench them all over again

Well, but to be honest it's Futuremark fault that their tests are too much CPU dependant :P

Like with the Abit compo, I wish participants didn't have to be part of a team, but there aren't many people in my boat :P

 

Only just noticed this compo. Sam prodded me. Cynical Kenny wonders if this explains some of the PMs i've had over the last couple days.....

 

 

I think I know which cards will win.....and with what mods.................

 

I'm out, I don't have any CPUs.

 

 

 

edit: Do HWB hope to have the 3DMark06 submission problem fixed so competition scores aren't screwed with?

Damn, that was my idea for another XtremeLabs.org Primus Inter Pares Challenge! -)))))

 

Lol, now you have to think in something more...or the same with different rules.

epower changes everything. the other 8800s that have lackluster vrms could probably clock 1200mhz with the epower.

@k404: I have my own batch of 8800's I plan to jump in with, and didn't know about this comp when I pm'd you. :)

 

I was starting work today, but had moisture problems... letting things dry out, and I am hoping the CPU lives at least. The mobo would be easily replaced, if the chip is dead then I am out.
