Verification screenshot requirements

All Global Top-20 benchmark results must now include a valid verification screenshot and a system picture showing the benchmarked system in action.

All verification screenshots must show the settings at which the benchmark was completed. This means it is not allowed to decrease the operating frequency for screenshot purposes. In effect, the staff reserves the right to reject a submission that is deemed out of line for the stated system parameters. For XTU specifically, the data file must contain monitoring information (frequency and temperature).

Verification linkNo verification link required

Additional notesThis page contains the benchmark result regulation specifications for Intel XTU. The rules as described in our General Rules section are still applicable even if they are not specifically mentioned on this page.

It is your responsibility, and the responsibility of your team captain(s) that these rules are followed properly. Your submission may be blocked by HWBOT moderators without notice if your submission is in violation of one of these rules. Multiple infractions may lead to a warning, and eventually an account ban.

Denmark valvet says:

It says "No verification screenshot is required", but there is an example screenshot saying otherwise? What's the deal with that.

Christian Ney says:

The example screenshot is here because sometimes it is required for competitions.
