With the current new cards and new performance, it seems that the current categories for different range of cards are no more relevant. While 256-bit cards may compete with 128-bit cards, it seems that it is not fair eventhough both of 'em had 12-pipelines. Heck, some 4-pipeline cards may even spot DDR3s on 'em which is unfair to the others with their DDR and DDR2. Wait.... even DDR is competing with DDR2.

How about SLI/crossfire? Even entry cards like 7300GT can mate themselves.

So, I came up with a diplomatic way to sort out the problem, via poll and discussions with everyone.

Option 1 & 2 : We will have high-end, midrange, and low-end as usual... but with revised requirements. Either we sort them according to card's memory bandwidth or according to the number of pipelines. How much justice will it do? I don't really know.

Option 3 : Ignore all the cards spec, just unite 'em all! Sounds rock huh? The idea was to separate different benchies into different threads. Cards are ranked together...the only matter is the score. Maybe we can divide between ATI and nVidia. Crossfire and SLI would still be separated into different group each under their respective brands. No more top-10, top-20 or top-whatsoever.

Option 4 : No change. I think this will need no further explanation.

Option 5 : Oh well... it's the boss' decision anyway.

I was thinking of like:

3dmark01se/03/05/06 : all different threads

In each threads we will have:
- 1 group for crossfire/sli
- 1 group for nvidia single cards
- 1 group for ati single cards
- no top ranks... all card can enter regardless low marks

With this..there is no need to categorize the cards based on pipelines, bandwidth or such.... NO DISCRIMINATION! LOL! laugh.gif

Imagine how long the list gonna be .
And it hard for moderator to keep track with the latest score if they didnt open the thread frequently. One day 2 pages of result.  rclxms.gif If they go vacation 1 weeks..balik time, habis.  laugh.gif
no need to put numbers.... just sort everything according to 3dmark points biggrin.gif

No wanting to drag this issue too long... I'll go for our third option. Seems that XS forum is using a kinda similar style, so it should be okay for everyone.

Besides, the database is no more limited to Top20, so everybody will have the chance of posting their screenies. Some rules and requirements will be revised as well, so stay tuned.

The old ranking threads will be archived. For now.... they're still open for discussions.

UPDATE:

Need volunteers for 3Dmark03, 3Dmark05 and 3DMark06. Need guys that have the time and some commitment for updating the thread.

Pattern of database will follow the same style as 3DMark2001SE database which has been opened recently.
