I confess, I watched for this like a 'hawk' as to get a first shot at running it
AMD style [what I figured as my only shot at 'a crown' .. lol] drat .. I missed

Nodens
01-27-2014, 08:17 PM
That score was made on the stripped Win8.1 Pro I'm making. It still has room to strip it more though :) (Plus a million OS level optimizations heheh).

EDIT: Oh and I almost forgot, the clock has been raised to 4.7 during the run and reduced back to 4.5 on the Heavy Multi test as that one was crashing on anything above 4.5. So the 4.5 recorded by RB at the end is misleading. On a last note some secondary and tertiary timings are pushed with Memtweakit after boot because I couldn't boot with them (eg tREFI) :) Only way I could achieve anything higher than that is by stripping 8.1 even more. The system is at its limit (or slightly above that to be precise).

HiVizMan
01-27-2014, 08:27 PM
Same one you sent me or a reworked version?

Nodens
01-27-2014, 08:30 PM
The one I sent you was Win8. This is the 8.1 I'm working on. It's further stripped than that 8 I had sent you but still has a lot of work to be done and at this point of stripping it needs some other way of installation (probably imaging) or heavy post install script in order to share it. Lots of quirks on that department to solve. You know you'll get it first when I'm done with it Viz ;)


EDIT: And Arne, stop being lazy and go above me already :p Or did you stop there just to let me stay at that spot for an hour? :p

Feel free to add it. EFS is the encryption feature of NTFS. It has overhead. Even if you are not encrypting stuff with it. So unless you're actually using EFS, disabling it will save a few cycles that add up to the rest of the tweaks:)


EDIT: Do not try this if you've enabled encryption (eg the User directory) as it will render the encrypted files inaccessible.

Hi ROG Team,

I really like the ROG Realbench software and I would like to modify it for my own personal testing purposes. Where can I download the source code?

Thank!

- David

(ps: before anyone shoots me down, I'm asking for the source code because both GIMP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GIMP) is produced under the and Blender (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blender_%28software%29) are open source under the GPLv3(+) license. This license requires any modified public versions of the software to be open source too (source: "But if you release the modified version to the public in some way, the GPL requires you to make the modified source code available to the program's users, under the GPL." (https://gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLRequireSourcePostedPublic))

You've already been told twice that you won't be getting it. Nodens has already stated that only one component was modified and he included the link to where his modified source code is stored. Nothing else has been modified, only included and linked to...so there's no need to share the source code.

Run the benchmark with High Performance power profile so that you CPU does not downclock.(You should be doing this anyway as that profile is faster).


hello, why You not delete cheater from first place? or his 987543256278935628 result it is true points? :D

Because it takes some time to get it deleted. It's deleted now and new version that fixes the issue will be up soon (it was ready the moment it happened..just has to get onto the rog servers).

Hi Nodens, MarshallR, HiVizMan,

I love your RB software, thanks to you & Asus for providing it.

What I'm wondering is have you seen some sort of issue where the CPU indication in RB would be "0" while either a bench or stress was running? I was experimenting with changing VCCIO and/or VCCSA, with an eye on increasing stability.(I've encountered a number of different BSOD, freezes, Nvidia crashes, etc. when pushing my OC) As I was testing this, I noticed that the CPU indication in RB would be "0". That happened when the test was going, when the 'puter was idle, and even during both bench and stress testing.

Once I started doing "auto" again, after my testing was done, I noticed the CPU indicator was working again in RB. Could it have been the voltage that caused it, or the executable or DLL was corrupted from my 'puter crashing (and having to rebuild RAID and scan disk for errors)?

Also, as a feature request, I'd like there to be a checkbox on the initial GUI, before starting a bench or stress test, which lets us leave a log entry in an event log. I'd like this as I'd not have to write down when a test started, with what parameters (i.e. duration/memory/stress or bench) so I can see how long it ran before it died or the 'puter BSOD'ed.

It might also be useful if the app would look for this entry in the event log, and report the next time it started "last run was a stress test that requested 8GB memory, and 8 hour duration. It ran for 6 hrs 35 minutes until the system crashed or was reset." (after looking for the proper boot and "system shutdown unexpected" events) If the run was successful and/or produced a score, these could be reported on the next run.

Again thanks for the software!

Cheers,

-Ambi

System instability can cause this. What kind of system instability it's impossible to know unless someone is examining the system with a kernel debugger in real time. And even then that would just narrow it down. It wouldn't pinpoint anything. Use some logic though. If resetting values to auto fixes it then it means there is no corruption of the files and it was induced by the settings.



Also, as a feature request, I'd like there to be a checkbox on the initial GUI, before starting a bench or stress test, which lets us leave a log entry in an event log. I'd like this as I'd not have to write down when a test started, with what parameters (i.e. duration/memory/stress or bench) so I can see how long it ran before it died or the 'puter BSOD'ed.

It might also be useful if the app would look for this entry in the event log, and report the next time it started "last run was a stress test that requested 8GB memory, and 8 hour duration. It ran for 6 hrs 35 minutes until the system crashed or was reset." (after looking for the proper boot and "system shutdown unexpected" events) If the run was successful and/or produced a score, these could be reported on the next run.


Accessing the event log is not a good idea for a multitude of reasons. To list a couple:
a) Implementation is different on each Windows version and would need catering for all.
b) Instability could cause the event log to get corrupted in a way that could be hard to recover.

This could be done with a text file instead in RB's directory BUT instability could also cause this to be corrupted and useless. Also there is no chance of having the granularity you suggest, if you write every second to the file updating it with the current timing value then it's 100% certain that the file would get corrupted on unstable systems making it again useless and possibly creating problems with RB itself because it can not account for every possible way it could get corrupted or parse randomly garbled data.
So in the case of a freeze you can already see the timer on RB. In the case of a stop error, you would get a corrupted file that showed nothing or the last time RB wrote to it. Assuming a 5-10 minute interval you may get something useful as there's less of a chance for a crash to happen during a write but there's still the chance of memory corruption that would cause the file to be written with gibberish multiple times before a crash actually happens so again that defeats the purprose.
So to sum it up. This is a feature that would only be useful in the case of system instability but due to the nature of system instability there's 95% chance that it won't provide any useful data (in case it's a blind write..if there's also reading of the file it can also cause issues). With this in mind it is not worth the time required to implement it.

Ambidexter
02-13-2014, 12:07 AM
My thought is really a start record in a log, not necessarily the event log, and a stop record when stopped by hand or upon completion. Showing something on the start page displaying the last few runs or something is just a way to use those data easier than looking in the text file. The "log" checkbox just makes it easier than changing a settings file.

BTW, I think I've fixed my Nvidia driver crashing issue. I relates to upgrades not uninstalling completely and not installing all related software, like 3D, Experience, etc. just graphics and physx drivers. I'll document when testing is finished.

Cheers,

RB enumerates the adapters then matches them in the registry and gets their names. So whatever is in the registry is whatever it will show. And that is whatever is in the driver INF files that also shows in the Device Manager. It has nothing to do with ROG or the benchmark. It's what I get from the system and that is outside my control. It's OS+driver land.

I mean its be nice and right :) Matrix 7970 be Matrix 7970, Matrix 280X be Matrix 280X, Poseidon be Poseidon, thanks. Just i wanna select ROG hardware from the rest. (sorry for my bad english)

I could but it's a full time job maintaining a full database of cards and hardware ids, would need lots of work and very frequent updates to add new cards etc. AIDA64 is a general system information tool that is not free. That work is justified on their side. It's not for RB though.

Nice score meankeys!....hmm have to get back to this bench...

Menthol! you got another monster 3930K? Have you been binning or is this just par for the course with your skill annd the chiller....what temp is the water in your loop for these.....

I am thinking I need a chiller or phase change or something here...just not cold enough for ambient cooling most of the year...which chiller do you and Zka have...like what capacity....

Menthol
02-22-2014, 01:33 PM
Good morning Arne, or probably evening for you, I am embarrassed to say how many CPU's I have purchased this last month, this one is not quite as good as the last chip but I got a little tired of binning one at a time. the chiller is a 1/2 hp model, I turn it on let it get to as low temp as it will go, about 4 degrees then run one or two benchmarks and turn it off and let the chiller catch back up again, It's not like any - temps, but I'm not setting outside in a blizzard freezing my cahonnes off

Arne Saknussemm
02-22-2014, 01:45 PM
OK thanks Menthol...I was wondering...it's just the few days of cold we had here I went to 5.2 GHz nice and easy so I was wondering if I just get some cooling sorted...but of course binning will help...good on you! looks like you have a good result. Looking forward to more nice scores there.

You got a link to the make and model of the cooler so I can get an idea of price..?

I am running 4.7 GHz at 1.45 volts. I'm actually stable at 1.43 volts for most stress tests, but crashed on the Real Bench 2.1, so had to bump it up a little to get the score. That is as far as I am going to push it. I'm going back down to 4.6 GHz at 1.35 volts for my every day use.

Slamms and Dew_Audigy very nice. way to raise the bar.
Menthol way to push it.

Nodens
03-08-2014, 05:50 PM
The top scores are very interesting. See the IB-E chip at 5068.6 tops Menthol's excellent SB-E sample at 5398.7. The RAM difference between the scores is in favor of Menthol as well (Menthol is running much tighter so RAM is actually faster although the clock is higher by 160Mhz on the IB-E). This proves what I was saying that IB-E chips are good for benchmarking regardless of the average lower clocks. I am just saying that cause some people were insisting on saying that SB-E is the way to go for benchmarking..

slamms 4960X is a beastly chip. But the run is entirely unoptimized. On a properly stripped and tweaked OS it would go waaaaay higher..

Menthol
03-09-2014, 06:37 AM
Nodens you are so right, I would like to see slamms tweak his OS and run again, an IV-E at 5.0 or higher is hard to beat

Nodens

Yeah slamms could break 125K easily with that chip.

Hi Nodens

On my RB run it reads triple channel memory not quad channel? Just thought I would mention that.

Nodens
03-09-2014, 05:24 PM
That's what CPU-Z detects then. Which could mean RAM is not really stable and on boot the board disables a DIMM slot.

Are you using adaptive ? If so, what kind of Vcore boost do you wind up at under OpenCL test ? I always see 0.1 but been talking with a fella on OCN who reports miniscule voltage boosts and I can't understand how that might be possible.



QUESTION: On another topic

Looked at the thread and didn't see anything since the Ver 2.1 release date however......

I have two 256 GB SSDs (C for OS and D for Games)
I have two Seagate 2TB SSHDs (one is used for all my SOHO files over 6 partitions (2 for family use / 4 for office use with share access permitted by partition)

-When I try and run off the SSHDs version 2.0b10R6 runs just fine....
-When I try and run (as administrator) off the SSHDs version 2.1 says "Real Bench does not have write access in this directory. Please move the application elsewhere on your drives.

If it was an OS issue, then why does the earlier version work ?

When I move it to the C:\ Drive (SSD), same result

When I put it in Program Files directory, I get a Real Bench can not be placed here message.

No matter where I put 2.1 it doesn't run whereas wherever I put the older version it runs just fine. And yes, I turned off the firewall / AV / malware programs

Your 2.1 version is bad. Redownload and extract.There is no difference at all at that part of the code since version 1. If yuo're getting that message it's probably Output directory missing or something.

That score is not legit. Either he hit some kind of bug or it's an exploit. I'm leaning towards the later because a bug would produce an unbelievable score, with certainty. And I do think I know how it was made. Something I thought about a while ago but didn't manage to safeguard against in 2.1.

It could be legit on subzero but that would reflect on the other scores as well. We should get it removed from the db.

The driver not responding upon stopping the ST is a driver issue when the OpenCL load is halting on-the-spot. It is nothing to worry about, the driver restarts itself. You should only worry about this, if it happens while the test is running because it means GPU OC failure or PSU failure.

Any idea when testing:

1. Sometimes I don't see any system info in the upper right box when benchmarking..... noticed an error (see below) so was watching it .... had a crash during oc testing,m and when came back, no data.

2. When it was there it was misreporting the CPU speed at 4400 ..... BIOS HWiNFO and CPU_z all said 46

EDIT: Upgrading to 2.2 has the CPU speed at 3499.2 while HWiNFO64 and CPU_z have it at 4600, nest time it was 0800 Mhz.

3. What's different in 2.2 ? I was 8 hours stable at 16GB yet the benchmark made me crash in 2.2

4. Suggestions on Stress Test ? I figured 2 hours @ 16GB is more strain than the box would ever see .... not enough time .... too much RAM ?

I normally end up checking with CPUZ first that i have the data coming up so i can do benchmarking with realbench or 3dmark. If Either of those 3 cant read the information it means the benchmark will just fail or be invalid.. Timing error as reported in 3dmark. However the error seems to come after the system has crashed a few times due to pushing the cpu and mb a bit too hard.

1. Sometimes I don't see any system info in the upper right box when benchmarking..... noticed an error (see below) so was watching it .... had a crash during oc testing,m and when came back, no data.


System information, apart from the GPUs, are mined with CPU-Z. So if you're not getting system spec on the top right box it means CPU-Z is failing so there's something wrong with the system. It's either unstable or the OS is corrupted. Nothing I or anyone else, other than yourself, can do anything about either of those 2 cases.



2. When it was there it was misreporting the CPU speed at 4400 ..... BIOS HWiNFO and CPU_z all said 46

EDIT: Upgrading to 2.2 has the CPU speed at 3499.2 while HWiNFO64 and CPU_z have it at 4600, nest time it was 0800 Mhz.


If you are sure that you are running High Performance profile (you're not getting downlocked by EIST) then you should PM me with a CPU-Z text report taken with the version that is bundled with RB.

This definately looks like EIST though. You're just getting downclocked at the moment the spec snapshot is taken because you're benching with Balanced power profile.



3. What's different in 2.2 ? I was 8 hours stable at 16GB yet the benchmark made me crash in 2.2


There is absolutely nothing changed with regards to the benchmark or anything else. 2.2 just adds the extra RAM options to the Stress Test and fixes a cosmetic issue. So version is irrelevant to your stability. You either changed something else or there's something wrong with your OS installation or you have some kind of hardware issue.



4. Suggestions on Stress Test ? I figured 2 hours @ 16GB is more strain than the box would ever see .... not enough time .... too much RAM ?

I guess the 4 hour option. The 8 hour option is overkill.

2. CPU-Z reads correctly, HWinFO64 reads correctly, RoG Real Bench is in error. RB stays static and reads the 44 multiplier..... the other two as well as AISuite go up and down from 0800 to 4500. I usually don't open any 2 of them of them at the same time for obvious reasons, but when I do and just stare at the screen in idle, AISuite, CPU_z, and HWiNFOO64 all go up and down and RB stays stuck at 44. See image attached. I will try PM'ing you two CPU-Z reports also

One from Rog CPU_z
One from RB CPU_z

Both say 46 multi

3. I'm in High Performance Mode.

5. Here's an odd one ..... I have tries to keep my cache as close as possible to cpu multiplier as read here and elsewhere that anything more than 3 impacts performance. In various forums, peeps are adamant that it has no effect. So being someone who "just has to know" and having observed in RB that the image editing portion varies with cache setting. I had previously done a series of 3 tests at 45 cache (45 CPU multi) and repeated with 42 and 39 cache settings ..... was a consistent difference (2.8%) between 45 and 39 but 45 and 42 were close.

So when the results were challenged as statistically insignificant, I did 20 runs each way ..... this time with 46 CPU multiplier. The 46 cache setting tests were all tight between 126k and 129k. I then went to 39 ans the 1st 12 tests were 132k - 133k, and the next 20, were 126k to 128k.

6. What's the thing w/ Image editing anyway ? The first run delays a long time before starting and gives a score of 96k-ish and all subsequent runs all start up fine and do 126 - 133k.

Hello

2. RealBench will only display the speed of the processor when the initial query is made. Unlike the other utilities you mention there is no live monitoring of the speed.

3. This contradicts what you wrote in point #2. If the power plan is set to high performance you should not see the CPU speed varying from 800MHz to 4500MHz.

5. Both sides of this are correct. Cache speed will make a noticeable difference in some benchmarks but I have found no actual programs or games where an increase speed over stock shows a tangible benefit.

JackNaylorPE
06-04-2014, 02:12 PM
Damn.... my response is gone.

2. I figured it out. Interference

a) RB displays 800 MHz being the only utility open
b) RB displays 800 MHz with HWiNFO64 open but following their advice not to display the results of the Asus EC Chip
c) RB displays 4400 MHz with HWiNFO64 open w/ HWiNFO64 displaying the results of the Asus EC Chip

Is there any way I can make RB more useful by tweaking it to gran the data during the test ? That is when running a benchmark like that, it would be more useful if it displayed the actual conditions during the test. Based upon what you have said, the data does not reflect the state of the CPU during the test but after the test.

3. I thought you were asking about Asus EPU setting which is set to high performance (see pic). Windows is set to balanced mode as my SSDs seemed to insist on it and of course I want the CPU to power down when idle.

5. My testing with different cache settings has been challenging. Initially it proved out exactly as per Asus recommendation that cache not be set more than 3 less the CPU so as not to affect performance.

With BIOS 0804 my RoG Image Editing results were:

45 CPU / 39 cache = 116,754
45 CPU / 42 cache = 119,431
45 CPU / 45 cache = 119,457

pretty much echoing what Asus OC videos and guides say.

Now w/ 1402 I tried again.

46/46 averaged 128,167 (129,368 high - 127,096 low)
46/39 averaged 131,896 (132,673 high - 129,982 low) for the 1st 12 runs
46/39 averaged 127,753 (128,336 high - 126,563 low) for the next 20 runs

It is interesting that:

a) In each of those last two groupings at the same cache ratio not one test eeked over the line to be within the range of the other, eliminating "statistical variation" from a consideration) .... whatever it is that got me 12 readings above 130 (well one missed 130k by 18 points I have not been able to repeat ever since.

b) 46/39 was able to substantially top (2.9%) 46/46 for those 12 runs.

c) The 2.3% advantage I saw when testing under 0804 disappears under 1402.

BTW, Praz....thanks so much for the education.

OOh one more thing....what's the significance of "LuxMark-X64.exe stopped working"..... the Logging window is still going like a bat outta you kno where, CPU usage meter says 100% and it sure doesn't seem like it stopped working :) ..... I know what what to do with a 0124 but stopped working I don't kno what to do with

Ok everyone,
Newbie on the block and have little to any idea what I am doing. I rand the stress test twice and the numbers are as follows.
Image edit 114.976 time 74.624
Encoding 84476 time 141.909
open cl 34412 669
Heavy multi tasking 77355 126.429
system score 70922
This was ran at stock speed for a starting number but have no Idea if it is good or bad.
Also ran the other test and got Results Hash Match
Then below it said in red passed stress test.
System 4770K, 16 GB 2400 ddr3
Any insight would be appreciated.

Morgan1952 .. Welcome to ROG.
A good place to start is to go to the Leaderboard (http://rog.asus.com/rog-pro/realbench-v2-leaderboard/?ipage=1&CPU=intel&view=1) and
click on the score of one of the entrants > Sample: 127120 slamms (http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=1802)
This will give you alot of information of the type of equipment they are using and some of the settings.
Then you can compare it to what you are using.
You do not say what motherboard or
if by default you mean the memory isn't even set to its advertised speed or GPU(s) ??
A couple of cpuZ screenshots--cpu tab and memory tab showing and the list of your hardware would be most
helpful for 'us' to help you.
Best of Luck .. Nice start, but I suspect you have barely turned it on. Your in for a treat. .c.

The results of my system benchmark are posted at http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=3503 (http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=3503)I noticed the OpenCL score was very low compared to others with similar systems using AMD video cards such as the one at this other link http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=1443 (http://rog.asus.com/realbench/show_comment.php?id=1443)so naturally I was concerned about my nVidia investment, maybe not configured optimally or maybe having a bug in the nVidia driver that has not yet been reported. Looking at many of the leaderboard score results and comparing the OpenCL scores reveals this seems to be an epidemic where a lot of nVidia cards score much much lower in this area than AMD cards. So there maybe is an issue which is why I am bringing this concern to your attention.

Nvidia makes its investment in CUDA rather than OpenCL so performance is lower. If you specifically choose an Nvidia benchmark it will be tailored to Nvidia cards through special programming. Whether that actually represents the software you use depends on the software you use, but LuxMark is just based on standard OpenCL programming - so all OpenCL apps will perform in the same manor as this.

If you are dependent on OpenCL through work or apps you use regularly, then currently AMD is the better option, however if you aren't and just worry about the benchmark score then don't worry about that portion :)

Whether that actually represents the software you use depends on the software you use, but LuxMark is just based on standard OpenCL programming - so all OpenCL apps will perform in the same manor as this. We don't tailor the benchmark to a specific outcome for anyone - not even ASUS/ROG products. It simply scripts off-the-shelf software.

OpenCL doesn't represent 3D or gaming at all - we are developing a 3D benchmark for future RB.

I will simply state the obvious question then. Since ROG stands for Republic of Gamers, and Republic of Gamers is a brand used by Asus since 2006, encompassing a range of computer hardware, personal computers, peripherals, and accessories oriented primarily toward PC gaming, then why does ROG RealBench v2.2 test OpenCL anyway? Why does it not test 3D or gaming instead of OpenCL? I thought ROG RealBench would score my PC's gaming performance, specifically.

HiVizMan
07-09-2014, 07:28 PM
The purpose is not to test or compare gaming systems - however running the benchmark will certainly indicate where your system is as a gaming rig - it was designed to provide real world (Real part of RealBench) environment to properly stress and test a system. The guy who wrote the benchmark is a member here by the way and used non licence software in the benchmark. His name is Nodens, worth going and having a read at his thread about developing the benchmark.

Now if you purely want a gaming benchmark, please tell me which graphic card you use. I ask this because most benchmarks (well all) will favour one brand of graphic card manufacture of another. Just as some games which are in part sponsored by one team or another will favour those particular graphic cards. Futuremark have a few great benchmarks that you can use to test your gaming system against, so to Heaven and Catzilla just to name a few. But all of those are biased if you will excuse the term towards one graphic card or another.

Hope that helps explain a bit about what this RealBench is all about.

I think realbench needs to run the same version of the component programs for consistent, comparable scores. I don't get that message about outdated because I don't have any update service active. Ignorance is bliss in this case.

The suggestion is to reinstall Realbench with the included version of VLC, then ignore the outdatedness.

Yes the program checks to see if there are any file modifications to ensure no cheating.

It's usually security fixes that don't really apply to the benchmark. Major software updates would have to wipe the scoreboard, or, provide multiple scoreboards.

WillyK
08-08-2014, 05:58 AM
Yes. It's a dilemma. However, I'm not sure if multiple scoreboards are really needed. The impact probably would be marginal, and those interested to stay current on the board can simply rerun the newest RB version. No big deal, really.

The security fixes, however, is a big deal in my book. Any SW containing security holes is no-go on my system (especially nowadays). So with all respect, I disagree that security fixes can be ignored just because they don't apply to the benchmark. When someone has spent money and time to fix something, there's usually a good rationale behind.

MatsGlobetrotter
08-08-2014, 07:31 AM
Hmm WillyK,

To run any of the Benchmarks you find on HWbot would yield exactly the same result in terms of outdated services and then potentially a security threat. I have had to install old Mediaplayers, media encoders just to be able to run a benchmarker software. If you are afraid of the security loopholes to that extent then its simply not possible to use any benchmark software on your production machine. Every single change in a package will change the scores uncontrollably and thus not be comparable. claiming it has little effect is wrong. otherwise why is everyone turning of even a simple service in the taskmanager even if it is 5kb. large.. simply because it takes space in the processor slowing down the time for the benchmark.

I would offer two solutions to your dilemma.

1. install the realbench only when you intend to run it meanwhile turn off internet. Then de-install it fully afterwards. You seem to have good software to do the cleanup and checks so the disk should be clean afterwards.
2. Get a separate HDD or SSD and install Win7 for example only to run the benchmark softwares that then is completely isolated from your normal production system.

I also run some benchmark software on my production machine but that wont give you neither good results nor good safety for your normal files simply due to the potential crashes if you overclock and run into multiple crashes which are common. in that scenario external viruses would be the least of your problems. Even the smallest 64GB HDD or SSD at around 50 - 70 USD would probably do the trick unless you have an old one lying around.

That would, in addition to get you more security also make you more aware of the bloatware that might slow down you machine in general (secure or insecure) with the inclusion of automatically detecting version updaters which are serious culprits in slowing down machines. Learned this by testing myself.

You're absolutely correct Mats, updating benchmarks that work and score evenly is a no no.

Internet when benching? No go, that should be disabled from BIOS ;)

08-08-2014, 12:23 PM
Mats touched on two separate problems with the same solution. First the security of older software used for consistent, comparable benchmarks. They are vulnerable - no argument there.

The second is OS damage from overclocking. I dialed in a 4790K followed soon by a G3258 Pentium. The 4790K work was during a competition where there was much to learn. Much tweakage and crashing. Had to redo RAM timing with the Pentium since its IMC wouldn't reach 2400. In all I wrecked Windows about twice a week in that process. I did all that in the second option of a dual boot installation and I have a backup images. Recovery takes about 5 minutes including getting the backup HDD and plugging it in.

My 24/7 OS is loaded with security, nice-to-have services and gets updated regularly - manually when I have the time, nothing automatic.

The point is that risks are there and they are real. They are also worse when overclocking and benching. I don't want to compromise the benchmarks by bloating the OS nor by 'cheating' with the latest software updates. Backup image of the OS is a good solution to both risks for me.

The second is OS damage from overclocking. I dialed in a 4790K followed soon by a G3258 Pentium. The 4790K work was during a competition where there was much to learn. Much tweakage and crashing. Had to redo RAM timing with the Pentium since its IMC wouldn't reach 2400. In all I wrecked Windows about twice a week in that process. I did all that in the second option of a dual boot installation and I have a backup images. Recovery takes about 5 minutes including getting the backup HDD and plugging it in.

My 24/7 OS is loaded with security, nice-to-have services and gets updated regularly - manually when I have the time, nothing automatic.

The point is that risks are there and they are real. They are also worse when overclocking and benching. I don't want to compromise the benchmarks by bloating the OS nor by 'cheating' with the latest software updates. Backup image of the OS is a good solution to both risks for me.

Jeff

I seriously need to make image backups of my bench OS's too. It's getting really old reinstalling windows all the time. The more BSOD/Crashes you have on an OS the more unstable it gets. X79 seems more sensitive to this, a perfectly stable OC profile can be unstable as hell the next day. And X79 works in mysterious ways, SB/Ivy/Haswell is a walk in the park to OC compared to SB-E :)

I believe that as HW/SW evolves, the RB would need to be upgraded anyhow in order to stay capable of serving its purpose properly (since it's not based on some "timeless" design/code). The only question is when. Whenever it may happen, it'll trigger all the above mentioned issues regardless. So from this viewpoint it makes no difference if any RB update happens tomorrow or next year. (Actually, the sooner, the better.)
It might be wise to consider how others are maintaining their benchmarking gear (e.g. Futuremark).

To me RB is mainly useful as a real-life stability test. There already exist a myriad of widely recognized benchmarking tools out there so not sure we need yet another one. The RB's real value is precisely its real-life stress testing capability, as opposed to the synthetic tests most of the other tools are offering. But ... that's just my opinion :)

Hold on just a cotton pickin minute, you mean to tell me that updating any component of a benchmark is considered cheating? since when? and how the hell is it we're only just learning this now, after 2 years of Vizman's Challenges?

That's why 'cheat' is in quotes. Some count - Realbench checks - and some don't and some require update.

Dear WillyK,

I am referring to exactly Futuremark on my comments. We all love running 3dMark 2001 as it is representing different era in how graphics was processed in the computers. Futuremark is releasing new benchmarking tools all the time as the technologies change and people use the new ones as well as the older ones. (reminds me i still need to get a key to use PCmark 04) Even on the simple futuremark system tool you cant run the latest version with for example PCMark05, you will never get a result if you do. Thus they only last what 3 years in one version anyway.

If we need or not another tool is up to each and everyone to consider and use as they wish, I mean even as a stress tester there has been numerous ones already, there is nothing unique with Realbench in that sense. They all test and stress different areas of a computer. Infact i think it overstresses the computer as seemingly I can run anything else but Realbench on some speeds and with that I also mean my 3d live rendering architectural softwares which are a killer for both CPU, GPU as well as HDD.

Im using most softwares to test and stress various scenarios as I like seeing how my computer fare among other computers. Even my old crappy laptops sometimes do good :-)

Some test benches like Hwbot Prime allow you to use any Java version to run for example.. Well sure dont use the ones from the last 4 years as they are all bloated and slow so you have to dig up an old slim one.. Took me a week to find what to trust among all the information on internet. There was over 30% difference in the result and then i have not even tried the 32 bit version yet....

Regarding the updating of RB components.

As MarshalR said, it is not possible to allow modification of subcomponents because it can be used for cheating. If I can't verify the integrity of handbreak binaries for examples, what's to stop x-y user with programming knowledge to create a special version of handbreak that does nothing at all but return ok-encoding-done in 30 seconds and use that to cheat?

Components will be updated from time to time after I carefully test them and verify that they work properly, they offer no cheating loopholes and only increase performance. IF performance is increased then there's no issue with the leaderboards because people can bench with new version. If a component upgrade decreases performance then that would require to restrict all previous versions from uploading and also clear the entire leaderboard. Otherwise people would just stick with the old version or, in the case of only restricting uploads from older versions, it would be unfair to new people that have not had scores in the leaderboard yet.

Regarding any "security" concerns:
You can be absolutely certain that you will have no security concerns whatsoever as long as you download from an official source. Regardless of any subcomponent upgrades etc.
RB is designed to have its own ecosystem. This means that it does not rely or use any other software, media or data installed in your system. Everything it uses is what's contained in the RB folders and subfolders. Even if VLC fixed a security vulnerability (eg a buffer underrun that allows arbitrary code execution via crafting a specialized media file) IT DOES NOT AFFECT YOU IN ANY WAY (caps for emphasis). Why? Because VLC is used in RB to only play a specific video file. Nothing else. Now if you go and use the VLC player inside RB to play random files you downloaded from the internet, something it's not supposed to do, then it's not RB that poses a security hole but the user, trying to do things they should not.

Upgrades to components will happen when the new versions offer performance gains (because it's only logical), they offer no issues and when it's needed in order to support new hardware.

I've tried several times, I can login before I run the bench but after I can't. I sent you a pastebin file of the cpu-z report back in March of this year and asked if you had found anything out again in May lol. Guessing it may have gotten overlooked which isn't that big of a deal, I know your probably busy with other things. I just re-installed my OS a few days ago and haven't re-ran it yet, just stressed to check stability. And yes on start-up it does parse specs, but once it completes a run I get Unable to parse system specs in the lower area of RB window and login and upload are both unavailable.

Same issue I've been having for some time now, and at the end of the run I always get the message at bottom saying unable to parse system specs when it seems to parse them just fine prior to a run lol. Been waiting on a fix for about a year now but going to a VII Hero and 4790K in a few weeks and will see how it does after that. Good luck on getting it sorted so you can get your scores posted :cool:

Does anyone experience an issue with Realbench v2.2 crashing when starting a stress test with the exact amount of memory selected as what is installed in their system?

Running Win8.1 - Hero VII - Corsair 16Gb Dominator ram [2x8Gb sticks] + 4790K.

If I select 'up to 16Gb of RAM' the program crashes right away and pops up with the default Windows "RealBench.exe has stopped working" dialogue immediately after hitting 'Start'.

If I select a lower RAM value - It works fine???

Is it a simple case of Win8.1 resourcing..?

The moment we gather the specs the CPU is idle. Nothing we can do about that. You should not benchmark on the balanced power profile though, it will be slower anyhow. Switch to the Performance profile for the benchmark run. It does not downclock on idle so your max clock will be recorded apart from giving you higher score. ;) Benchmarking on balanced profile is just silly :p

There is no specific feature request thread but this is a good suggestion and will add it at some point on later versions. Have in mind though that if the system is really unstable it's not guaranteed that the sound will play. It may freeze, produce a stop error or reboot before doing so.
