    I have observed that sometimes even if the number of frames rendered is more than the length of the test (in seconds) and the Details will show 1.0, the ORB will still not give a result.

    F- that.

    You know, that really pisses me off, working for over two weeks trying to get 129, and now I have to start all over to try to get 0.

    What bugs me, though I can understand why it's happening, is that the already submitted <10 scores I have don't show the values. I don't even remember the settings I used to get my lowest score. I'm going to have to do a few more overnight runs to get it right.

    Based on my previous submissions, my personal theoretical lowest should be 4 or 5.

    Yes, zero was an exaggeration.

    Using the formula, and if all four tests give a 0.01FPS result, without any rounding, I get a possible score of 1.301.

    That is pretty nuts and the less than 1 frame per second one..Well this is kind of bad considering we were working on getting exactly 1 fps.. oh well I suppose.

    Hi, I have a question regarding rule #14 which states:

    "The benchmark must have been made during the competition period and must have "PowerColor PIMP MY RIG 2011" in the title (for registered users)."

    So my question would be what exactly does the "registered users" mean? It means registered users of the benchmark, the registered users of this forum, the registered users of this forum with forum user name matching the user name of the benchmark, or...........

    :confused:

    It means registered users on ORB ( Futuremark Online Result Browser ) can edit title/name of benchmark.

    Hy guy`s ^^

    hmm, it seems that the 6 Points from Maban don`t have any valid GT FPS, or is it possible to online hide these values ?

    would be really interesting what the current valid lowest score is.

    :rolleyes: mfg Chri

    My current valid lowest is 10. Working to get 5 right now. Started the bench last night, should be done by the time I get home.

    I don't think it matters kereta, you can just re-post.

    yeah.. but a 7 isnt going to win the contest.. unfortunately with ORB showing >1 fps now, we will most likely get a lot of people with the lowest valid score and they will end up pulling a name out of a hat ;) .. but its still alot of fun doin this! ;)
