I need a 980 X for this contest :-/

So the top 2 will get to compete in Quakecon.

Does this include airfare , hotel , Quakecon tickets etc ?

I just ran it on my system I have now and got 9.793. Going to throw that Rampage 3 Extreme I won last weekend in and see what it can do.

Brian@ASUS
07-26-2010, 04:59 PM
quakecon tickets yes, travel, accommodations and additional expenses no, but ill buy you guys drinks :p

if you win the quakecon tournament, you will be invited to the OC summit where all expenses for travel and hotel are paid for.

just to clarify, since there will be 2 teams and each team has 2 people, then the top 4 scores will get to go to quakecon?

just to clarify, since there will be 2 teams and each team has 2 people, then the top 4 scores will get to go to quakecon?

so the people that rank #1 and #2 will get to bring their own friend, team member, partner in crime, to help assist and bench with them at quakecon. the way we had it at oc summit was 3 teams of 3. each team had to try and get as many records and hold their ground for who had the most records. it will be similar but scaled down a bit. the team of 2 will try and set records within the event and whoever has the most records wins. its very strategic because you can be in first place at one point and last place by the end of the day. we are supporting the teams with 2 of everything so that you can either use one as a back up or have 2 people benching the same or different benchmarks to increase the chances of breaking records. it really has a lot of strategy to be played. if you see the 3x3 oc summit videos, you can see how strategy helped or hurt a team.

Quick question Brian, if I have multiple ROG boards (different platform) can I submit on different board and only the best one will count?

Brian@ASUS
07-27-2010, 12:34 AM
yes you can submit as many times as you want on as many boards to achieve the best score. but you can only win once. your highest score is the only one that counts :cool:

Brian@ASUS

If this was all expense paid I would totally be into this or if I lived in Dallas :-/ .... I'll still enter a score here soon when I get my new board setup.

Brian@ASUS
07-27-2010, 07:19 AM
anthony, yea a lot of people have requested for the expense but we have close to $13k in prizes being offered to compensate the travel expense. for the OC summit, we will have expenses paid.

I made a submission to the Asus mb thread and noticed a couple issues which may need to be amended, unless I'm reading it wrong.
I realize the same text was used for both threads, but it could be misconstrued.

The first is the OP of the Asus mb thread. It states that the winners are going to Quakecon.

The second is page 6 of the rule book. It deals with single gpu submissions and the example uses a GTX295.

Also, what bios should I use for this P6T Deluxe with Gulftown ?

chew*
07-30-2010, 05:06 AM
Will point this out to Brian. I believe the mentions of vid cards have to do with just some general guidelines.

As far as the P6T i do not have one in my posession I do however have a P6X58D Premium. I would imagine the best bios for that most likely the "release dates" will be similar. I will give it a test run to see what works best.

Brian@ASUS
07-30-2010, 04:35 PM
FIXED, the asus thread is elligible of only winning an ROG board.

in regards to the example, i tried to come up with 3 different scenarios incase in an event we were to be challenged with a similar scenario. so it states in the example that any geforce 200 series is ok to use. this lets any user with a 200 series eligible or you will need to go out and purchase a 200 series card. but for this competition, it is open to any gpu any cpu

our latest bios in our support site should support gulftown in the p6t

Good luck and have fun at QuakeCon. I'll be tuning in to watch the action, for sure.

Big thanks to ASUS, Brian and the crew here at the ROG forums for hosting this terrific contest.
