Windows 7: SF Benchmarking rules and general discussion.

SF Benchmarking rules and general discussion.

After some thought, I figured it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to some basic rules and general discussion of all the benchmarks here on SF.

I don't think it is fair that 1 person should be solely responsible for making all the rules so I think we should all discuss any rules that you think should/should not be in place for the benchmarks here.

Also this thread can be useful for any discussion relating to the benchmarks too.

Rules-

#1. Lucid/Virtu MVP is NOT allowed in any of the leaderboards. If you wish to run it and post a score you must make everyone aware you used it and it will be for interest only.

The first topic of discussion is Lucid MVP.

Here are my thoughts on it, please all pipe in and let me know your thoughts too.

Personally I think Lucid MVP should be allowed but obviously it must be declared that it is being used and it will be entered into the SLI/Xfire section. The GPU would be listed as (for example) GTX780/HD4000.

I don't see any reason why we could not allow an entry in both the single card and the SLI/Xfire sections per person, there is nothing stopping people who have 2 discrete cards disabling one and having a shot at the single card leaderboards, so why not allow people using Lucid to have a shot at the SLI/Xfire leaderboards if they so wish?

Paul.

Allow it just for those who aren't using Big boy cards they are the one's who benefit really from it

I am using it right now because all i have is one card it helps a little but not by leaps and bounds

Can't allow it just for certain cards solar, that would be a total nightmare. What qualifies as not a big boy card etc.

It's all or nothing on this.

Also Solar, the point was for people using Lucid to be entered into the SLI/Xfire leaderboard. I can't see how it would be a good idea to just let the lower end cards do that. If they are struggling already then they ain't gonna fair too well against 2x 780TI's are they

It was just a thought you know people with Lucid using 560 or something along that line no 280x or no 7970's anything above 760 shouldn't use it

Just trying to get the little guys onbaord either way it goes it doesn't matter once we agree it's the rules
