    not yet... I'm not sure if we are allowed to submit more than 1 entry so I am waiting until I am positive that I have the lowest possible score I can get. I just like posting my progress here to encourage others to keep going !! ;) If I find out any info on the submit error, I'll let ya know.

    Sometimes cranking things up is the way to go.. lower isnt always better... you need to balance the performance for: dx7 vertex shaders / dx8 vertex shaders, pixel shaders, stencil shadowing, polygon throughput / dx9 vertex shaders, pixel shader 2.0, polygon throughput.

    so basically what I'm sayin is: You may need to turn your clocks back up as to be able to lower other things ;)


    edited* I think some one might have stated this already, but I just found out that getting a 1.0 FPS on test will NOT show up in ORB :( ...... so I guess a 1.10 is what I'm shooting for !

    @W1zzard,

    Please answer;

    Do we need all the tests or only the four graphics tests?

    Please forgive me, but what text are you referring to?

    Thanks


    EDIT: Perhaps section 12 of the rules?

    That says:
    Submissions must have numeric result values on ORB for all the following fields: "3DMark Score", "GT1 - Wings of Fury", "GT2 - Battle of Proxycon", "GT3 - Troll's Lair", "GT4 - Mother Nature".

    However, it does not plainly state that those scores are the only ones required to have a valid contest entry, merely that those are required.

    If indeed the four graphics test scores are the only scores required, might I respectfully suggest the rule be further amended to reflect that fact, and also, that while the other scores may be included in the ORB, they are completely optional?

    I have a feeling that the algorithm that was posted is slightly off, therefore I think I have a chance of getting a tiny bit less. If it's possible to get below 130, I will certainly get there.
