Default Team Cup 2015 - Congrats Team HWC! Finished 6th out of 95 teams!

One of the great things about the Team Cup is that there are so many different competition categories that you're almost guaranteed to have the kind of hardware needed to participate. So here's a brief overview of all the different events in this year's Team Cup...

Please feel free to use this thread to discuss. Hardware Canucks has always been the little team that could in this competition. So hopefully we can cobble together enough scores again this year to Crack the Top 10!

- Stage 2 = Lowest clockspeed on an AMD processor using CPU-Z ~ trodas @ 75 Mhz = 10th
- Stage 3 = Multithreaded performance on an LGA775 processor using Cinebench R15 ~ Dead Things @ 488 CB (using a QX9770) = 8th
- Stage 4 = SuperPi 1M on a 486 ~ Dead Things @ 27m 10.845s (using an Am5x86-P75) = 1st

- Stage 9 = Aquamark V2.1 using an AMD K6 processor and any GPU ~ Dead Things @ 19.7 fps (using a K6-2+ 550) = 5th
- Stage 10 = Best 3DMark03 score using any AGP videocard ~ Dead Things @ 25,340 marks (using an HD 4670) = 8th

Category 3: Memory Benchmarks
- Stage 1 = Lowest possible memory clock while using a Sandy Bridge processor ~ Dead Things @ 399.8 MHz (using an ASUS P8B WS with an i7 2600K) = 18th

- Stage 5 = HWBOT Prime on a Raspberry Pi ~ Dead Things @ 745.83 pps (using a RPi1) = 3rd

I'll keep track of submissions in this post to make it easier to see where the team could use your help. Happy benching!

Sorry trodas, I'm going to knock off your Category 2, Stage 10 3DMark 03 score today or tomorrow. Nothing personal, it's just my 4CoreDual-SATA2 board just happened to be on the top of my pile.

Interesting, I have a few things that could contribute to this. Will see how much time I have on the weekend.

Raspberry Pi
Q45 IGP

Awesome zoob! While the Raspberry Pi score would certainly be nice to have, the Q45 IGP would be a real coup; I don't think there's too many of those out there any more. I'm rootin' for ya!

Not sure wth is going on with Catzilla. It takes forever to load and runs a black screen for one scene with audio.

Q9400 / 4GB DDR3 / Q45 chipset / Windows 7 64bit

I downloaded the "newest" drivers for Q45 graphics...

EDIT: Ah. it's crashing. EAccessViolation in module catzilla.dll....

If I wasn't so busy, I'd be in there 100%. I have so much old hardware....

I could take any old hardware you got and do it in your honor, id love to play with some retro gear again.

Sorry Trodas lol.

Once im not being lazy and decide to clear my cmos (fast boot enabled, cant get into the bios without clearing it) I could probably up that score substantially, but it seems like it will do for now.

I tried some ramcaching software, but it appears to be useless unless I register it.

I get that! Was a time I could do all these myself. Now, I gotta pick my battles. But hey - think you could find time to squeeze in just one?
