We need more active users
I think the same, but no one wants to be our bench friends
Its tough here.. the benching mentality is just not there at this site, but it certainly could be.
What you guys should do if I may, is to get a leader... an ACTIVE, and more importantly, KNOWLEDGEABLE about benchmarking and hwbot leader. With respect, the blind leading the blind doesnt exactly scream "JOIN ME!", ya know? Having a good bencher as a leader and talking head will help all the others to bench well, with team purpose, and mostly to have fun as that is what this hobby is all about to me.
I like your zeal, keep it up and see if you can reach out to those TPU's that know what they are talking about benchmarking and hwbot wise and see if you can grow and get some shape to the TPU Hwbot team.
Ill be your friends.
I know what you mean, I started doing this as a bit of fun. Trying to get a few others to join in, try and re-light some benching fun. I didn't realise how redundant the TPU hwbot team had become, the team captains haven't been active for a long time.
Im not the wisest or that knowledgeable enough to lead, I think someone would need to be a pro overclocker or similar to get a good team on the go and give advice on all platforms and benchmarks. I'd suggest a pair of captains. But not many have the time or patience for that.
The comment about blind leading the blind, no one is leading anyone atm. It purely is for fun to be fair. There are people who like overclocking/benching and Im obsessed, so wanted to give back to TPU instead of submitting scores just for myself.
I just created this thread/club to see where it goes. I'd love to see someone step and take this forward, take over the TPU hwbot site, get a group of active members, post challenges/competitions, have a points leaderboard on OP, and help everyone enjoy this.
You sound so mature when everyone can see you .
Anyways here is the best 1M Record that i actually screenshot.
My very best was 14.396. Mind you this was done on air.
Been a while since I updated mine I think it might be under xs anyway...
i am glad that is the case
Get to it man! As far as "KNOWLEDGEABLE" goes, it's not like it's some secret information or anything. All it takes is some reading, trial and error.
If you want TPU to be hwbot competitors, you, the community need to get to work. People can give opinions on what they think this should all be, but it really only comes down to benching benching benching and posting the results.
I just don't have the time to be a part of such things anymore... Perhaps in the future at some time.
Anyways, just keep pluggin' at it and more people will join in... Maybe. Because afterall most of it comes down to how much money you can throw at hardware.
erocker brings a valid point, benching is not a cheap hobby if you want to go chasing points on hwbot as mobo, cpu and gpu all cost. that being said you can get older am2 and 775 stuff for next to nothing these days too.
you could just bench your own system but unless you have a spare harddrive to boot from i am not sure i would bother either. as most people on there do use stripped down windows versions to make the smallest footprint on the hardware to begin with.
that being said you can just bench what you have and see how it stacks up. what makes hwbot the best site for benching imo is the fact that you are only ranked against other people with the same kit. so your amd chip only goes against amd chips of the same type. your brand new 1 k cpu might get some world ranking points right now but they dont last, its the hardware masters who keep their points for being the best with each in its class.
i am not activley benching right now but as tpu was where i joined hwb for i have parked my boints back in the team.
Does hwbot accept the latest AMD beta drivers?
Well.. It doesn't accept Windows 8 currently, so even doing a couple quick runs is out of the question for me.
afaik they take all drivers but you're right about win8 as it has overclocking issues.
Come on, you gotta push those a bit. Cant your 7970 clock higher? I know the 8320-50 can go higher than 4.5. GOGO! For high physics i suggest 2000-2133 with tight timings. That seems to be the sweetspot.
remember to disable all settings in CCC.
No tessellation is the norm and will net you around 500points or more and maybe a better overclock on same voltage.
Are you blind the CPU is at 4.8GHz. And I'm working on the GPU.
Im sorry that i offended your self-worth when i mentioned the 4.5GHz oc.
Durvelle, do you recognize me from OCn? Did i ever HURT your feelings or annoy you?
No & no
wow that's a shock! ranger never annoyed anyone lol
I wasnt even talking about your rig (Misread clocks), it was that benchmark i was talking about. Not sure why you got so defensive.
