HWBoints - Putting the fun back into Benchmark

There are quite a lot of hardware enthusiasts out there who buy the latest gear, not the play games, do heavy calculations or use it for work; their sole goal is to reach the highest scores in a wide array of benchmarks.

www.hwbot.org has been hard at work over the past year to automate the comparison, submission and validation of different benchmark results; Now richbastard, the main man at the site, has come up with a clever way to "rank" overclockers based on how good they score. Nothing new you say? Well.. it's not limited to one benchmark anymore.

Here's what the HWbot has to say about the HWBoints (what a clever name):

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.

to read more about this genius system of competition and get yourself hooked, head over to the site and register! If you choose to submit your scores for the Madshrimps team , we will stand a chance together to rise in the rankings, and maybe, one day get up to XS status? Who knows?
