    Phfft I was a little excited about this one but I would have to fire up/rebuild a P4 rig to even hope to "compete" and even then the lowest card I have kicking around is an X850.
    I really think this one is a very flawed contest...

    humm, i just got 56 and i submitted but i can't see the results for all game tests only GT1, i guess it is because we have less than 1 fps on the other GT's

    "Your result has the following problem(s) and will not be shown for example on leaderboards:: Processor is not recognized, Graphics driver is not approved. (What is this?)"
    What can i do to solve this, and will my result be valid?

    0 FPS with 2 frames rendered on Wings of Fury, and Battle of Proxycon has been loading for the last 20 minutes. I think I've got this one in the bag.

    Oh, and this is with a 2500K and GTX 570. I knew there was a reason I kept this old IDE controller card around.

    Edit: no frames rendered in Proxycon. Will this count as a DNF on the score screen?

    Okay noob question incoming:
    How do I add "PowerColor PIMP MY RIG 2011" in the description? My score is here but I can't find how to add it.

    What title? The score page lists the date so that shouldn't be necessary. Not to mention wouldn't that rule invalidate all prior entries? Also there's a typo on 13.

    First, I've submitted my score in gpu-z without registering at futeremark.com (and there's no "PowerColor PIMP MY RIG 2011" in the title)
    After reading rules thoroughly, I've created an account on futeremark.
    If I make another test, and submit it with the same name and e-mail, will my entry be eligible?

    That is a nice one!

    My best is 31 atm.

    I have the same problem too, since we are running it at sub 1fps the test results don't show.
    Also 3dmark2003 does not like my hardware :/ since one can only see motherboard model and gpu model. I dont know if this is a problem too.

    Dont think is valid since the Vertex one shows as N/A which means it wasnt taken

    it was taken i watched it run, it just shows as N/A when it goes under a certain point


    much like GPU-Z stops showing number when the pixel fillrates under 0.1, this must stop showing numbers when the framerates under some number, however the feature tests for some reason are not removed from the futuremark page

    i uploaded my scores on my celeron and 5200, but it says that the driver is not FM approved, is it still eligible to win?

    Are multiple entries allowed? Say from my old rig and a new one?

    We can complete all the gpu tests with 0 and get away with N/A's on the cpu stuff. And it still will give a 3d mark score...so is that technically valid? Or do we need to have these scores future mark approved?

    Heres my Entry. It all says N/A for some reason.

    http://3dmark.com/3dm03/6435352

    It says the drivers are invalid as I'm using XP drivers on a Windows 7 system.

    Edit* Can't Submit my entry due to GPUz saying I don't have a Graphics card or something

    [​IMG]

    Edit* The most my system can get from running 3dmark with the cpu @ stock settings is 150ish.


    Yes this computer is really that bad and I've had it for several years. I had to recently get it out of the attic due to my workstation dieing on me.

    One thing I have noticed;

    I am able to complete the tests, but if the score is under 1FPS, although it appears in the Details, it will not appear in the ORB results.

    [​IMG]

    As one can plainly see, Mother Nature did complete, as did Vertex Shader, and Ragdoll as well, but as the frame rates were less than 1FPS, they were not displayed in ORB.

    As completing Mother Nature is one of the requirements, I would say my score is valid, although I am sure it would not be considered so, due to the ORB link being the "official score".

    I believe some serious clarification that spells out, exactly and in perfect detail, just what is and is not acceptable and/or valid.
