Huh?

 

Someone else already submitted a result, so the competition should be open. Can you try again and if it doesn't work make a screenshot of the error ?

So this competition is limited to Intel processors only? With XTU and all, and no 4 core AMD processor will match a 4 core intel. Sorry, but im a proud owner of a six core amd processor. Can't compete limited 4 core only.

I can't join because I have a 3960X.

 

I don't understand the answer on the twitter.

 

"we don't allow disabling of cores. There is a technical reason for that as our engine doesn't support that."

 

What engine. the HWbot prime thing? I am pretty sure everything would go perfectly well if I disable two cores in the bios. hell I wouldn't even win anything in terms of heat(which I tested).

 

So now because I spend abit more money on the processor it means that I have to play with the big boys? This sucks.

The technical reason is that the HWBOT engine (the name for our backend code) doesn't support disabling of cores properly. It's related to the way we organize multi-threaded benchmark rankings.

 

I feel your pain though, let me check with the development team if there's something we can do about this!

The next Cup will feature scoring based on "score / cores". So the restriction for quad core has been removed :)
