  1. Start date will be the 5th of August till the 31st of October. Verification rules will be expanded versus the regular standard offical HWBot rules: CPU-Z tabs for CPU, Mainboard and Memory (+SPD for the memory stage) Verification Screenshots are always full screen, no removal of taskbar, no clipping,... Retail hardware only (also for motherboards) Competition Background must be visible To avoid the drama of last year, picture(s) of the RUNNING OC setup has to be added with each submission For all 3DMark benchmarks the latest Systeminfo has to be installed (have verification files at hand) If required don't forget to add the verification link!

    Gonna split up over the 4 different memory types, once TC starts and you have an issue plz comment in the appropriate thread. thanks and have fun or at least try to have fun

    no more Asana Matt, didn't liek it anyway 😛

    Deadline ? I think most are aware that a good programmer can break any benchmark out there. Even the wrapper equipped ones. However does that lead to any responsability affiliated to HWBOT? HWBot needs to do a post on benchmark security or integrity? Really? Honestly no idea what some people have been drinking but I want a jerrycan of that moonshine to keep me trying to run this place... IF everybody runs the benchmarks as they are designed to be without e.g. any downclocking, pulling cables or changing the benchmarks settings we would not have all these rules and bugged scores. I would even dare to claim that the users are more to blame than the site that hosts the scores in it's "special way" If Matt can design a wrapper for eg the Cinebenches/Wprimes that would be cool and I would be happy to donate to make these 2D benchmarks more bulletproof. XP is going down anyway, so if you can make it compatible from Win7 and up, it would be perfectly fine for futureproofing these legacy benchmarks

    if you can use them in only 1 stage out of 8 how would it rule DDR4?
  9. Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    If we want to attract new people we should have bulletproof benchmarks that work on the latest OSses.. sadly we are limited to a handfull that are RTC bug free... Thanks for Intel for adressing it, no thanks to AMD for not giving a fuck. Nothing evolving in this hobby besides the hardware, hence why we need 6 different OSses to get the best performance per benchmark. This alone frustrates new users, as they all bench on 8.1 or 10. Only Futuremark moves on , the rest is... About the hardware cost, things are getting ridicilous and I even suggested a 10 core limit on the newer gens of CPUs. Many 3D benchmarks have become in fact 2D benchmarks. No more LN2 on GPUs as the CPU takes control of the total output. Is that benching ? Maybe it is in your book, in mine things have become way too easy. Do you need to pull out a soldering iron each time? nope but grabbing points and winning certain competitiions have never been easier. If we would allow 7980XE and Titan GPUs to rule in the DDR4 stage , would that attract new blood? I beg to differ from many of the haters in this thread. Open up to cheaper and more challenging hardware... it is not just about points and WRs.... I can assure you Country Cup will be a similar format as it was too easy to claim the victory, since you only needed a few recently modern good CPUs to trash the rest. Unless you want to design the competition with me. Ex-admins approved of the current format as it is versatile and it will be challenging to hit the top spots in each stage. Thanks Yousarianlives for a nice recap on what Team Cup should be.

    The logic is to avoid that the 4K setups get an easy win... By not allowing them to be used in multiple stages you can make it more fair for the other ones... not ?
  11. Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    correct
  12. Why is the 1070ti allowed in Division V?

    I haven't validated all subs yet, only talking about the 1070ti ones, they remain... just do what you have to do... and what you think is your perogative...
  13. Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    Stage 7 is all out with max 2 GPUs, if your team can manage the hardware list you mentioned, good for you you might secure top spot with 50 points in the pocket. Now if you think all teams can manage it I think we would agree to disagree. Is that unfair?, Maybe or maybe not as they can only use their superexpensive gear in one stage. Now you talk of allowing them too in other stages Wow that's super contradicting to me... I don't get all this nitpicking on some stages, Team Cup is not about 1 stage to complete,
  14. Why is the 1070ti allowed in Division V?

    Look nobody cheated, they just used the error in the hardware limitation list. So I can't punish them as you would like me to do. As said above the scores and ranking stays.
