A clever way to A clever way to "rank" overclockers
Fri, December 01 2006 | 6:25PM | PermaLink Feedback?
" The hwboint ranking algorithm is a well thought computation that hands out points to overclocking results, based on how noteworthy they are. A high rank in a very popular benchmark application like SuperPi will get you a lot more hwboints than a high rank in eg. Sisoft sandra, as there is less competition. The same counts for the specific hardware you used. You might not be ranked high in the main ranking, but if you have the fastest processor / videocard of your kind, you'll recieve a decent amount of points too. Again, the more people are using this piece of hardware, the more points you will get. Eg. you will recieve a lot more points for having the fastest 7900GT, than having the fastest Matrox Parhelia."
