" 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."
