Nice improvement Rasparthe! Finally got my score to register after deleting the old ones and resubmitting it again. I am pretty much done with this stage as well.

Well done guys! Unless we can up the allendale or get something else in, I think that's as far as we go. I just hope there aren't too many sandbaggers out there.

The 3DMark01 IGP limits are up:

Quote:
Limitations

  • Only make submissions with a socket Integrated videocard.
  • A verification screenshot is required.
  • Please attach a picture of your overclocking rig.
  • Must use competition background: download
I'll be contributing my GF9300/E6600 ITX combo. Are LOD tweaks allowed for this competition?

edit - Yes they are. Will start playing with LOD tonight.

LOD Tweaks? I'm listening...

I'll have my 4290/965BE combo. I'll see what I can pull out of it anyways...

I'm still hoping someone else will jump in on the 3dmark11 Bench that will beat me.

This is probably the most thorough guide to tweaking 3DMark01: 3Dmark2001 school by Mr Vivi - Overclockaholics Forums

If you don't want to spend much time messing around with LOD, then +3.0 is usually a good standard. One difference between the guide and me, though, is that I run Nature first instead of last. It's just always worked out better for me that way.

edit - I should note that tweaking LOD seems to have a greater impact with lower-end GPUs than it does with faster GPUs, hence its relevance to this competition.

Looks like I have some learning to do... :P

Also have to figure out the best way to OC my IGP. Haven't really played with that much.. :P

This is probably going to need SandyBridge IGP to be competetive, I don't think I'll be too helpful here. Don't have much for IGP except for a X4500. Might be able to hijack my parents i3 computer if I get to there place in the next couple of weeks.

EDIT: Looked a little more closely and I see the king here will be the new Llano chips. Be interested to see if anyone has a new Llano setup in their HTPC that will take the crown here.

Wow - there were some pretty mental UCBench scores posted in the wee hours. I guess there were more than a few sandbaggers out there after all. Oh well. Good show in Stage 1 nonetheless!
