The HWBOT World Tour 2017 featured overclocking events spanning ten countries around the world. These included the US, Brazil, France, Taiwan, South Africa, Russia, Indonesia and Australia. At each stop, an Overclocking World Championship 2017 Qualifier contest was held – an extreme overclocking contest where the region’s most talented overclockers competed for a ticket to the OCWC Final.
Calling all members! Here’s your chance to do a little bench-marking and help the Overclockers.com benching team push for first. You may think ,”I’m not a bencher” or “my hardware is too old” but that doesn’t apply here. The team cup has such a large variety of hardware that just about anyone can help, no liquid nitrogen required.
HWbot hosts a yearly competition called the Team Cup. This competition calls for a wide variety of hardware ranging from antique to modern, even cellphones and tablets can be used. This is great but also in a way makes it very difficult. Having all the necessary hardware is nearly impossible for our team, so I’m calling on all members of Overclockers.com to help out if you can. I’ll include the list of benches and hardware in this article. Take some time and have a look there might be something here for you.
Today we will take a high-level look into the world of benchmarking: CPU and GPU benchmarks, benchmarking tools and much more. Specifically, we will be looking at thirteen point-scoring benchmarks listed at HWBOT.org as well as the more common utilities used for overclocking and submitting scores to their system.
Today we will take a high-level look into the world of benchmarking: CPU benchmarks, benchmark tools and much more. Specifically, we will be looking at 12 point scoring benchmarks plus a new addition listed at hwbot.org as well as the more common utilities used for overclocking and submitting scores to their system. We also touch on system information and monitoring programs.
A hot topic on the benchmarking scene has developed in the form of a HWBOT forum poll created by BenchZowner to discuss whether or not to continue to allow Engineering Sample CPUs as boint scoring hardware. For those that may not know, an ES chip is one that is not released to the public, cannot be sold (legally), and can be coveted for its potential overclocking performance over retail chips. A lot of the sponsored overclockers use these chips and can potentially score more boints than an average joe that is using an unbinned retail chip, which is essentially the heart of the matter.
