    OMG, we have a new challenge! Thank you, Sir!

    Questions:
    1. Even the GeForce Titans are allowed? I haven't done 3DMark2001SE or Aquamark with them, but they're a beast!
    2. The same OS has to be used too? I know that the wPrime 1024M likes the WinXP, but the 3DMark2001SE and Aquamark may like the Win7 better (not sure as I haven't tried yet)

    Sounds good, my friend. Typo in the title though. Should be Challenge.

    3DMark2001SE and Aquamark favor Win XP too.

    If they have it then let them use it. The Nature cap will make the playing field a little more even. But there will never be parity or a perfect handicap. Such is benching.

    HiVizMan,
    Thanks for putting on these challenges, My weakest benching is 2d so this is just what I needed.
    I just made a trial run of 2001 and scored 700+ in nature, and increasing gpu frequency only lowered the score, I will have to search the internet to get some ideas on what to do as 1200 looks a long way off.
    Which background do we use?

    He-he, I did install the 3DMark2001SE on my present system and did some readings too... - man, this is a very fun benchmark! Why nobody mentioned it to me before?!

    I did manage to get a 823 nature score on Win7 64-bit - but that's way below the 1200 cap we have in this challenge... so, there is plenty of room to improvement!

    Also, my AquaMark3 score needs to be improved...

    BTW, I observed that there will be no prizes... - come on, HiVizMan, you know that the biggest prize for everyone will be the score improvements! Oh, and not talking about the fun we're gonna have!
