ASRock has announced its FM2 A10 OC Competition by HWBOT, which is a website committed to the display of achievements in the field of overclocking. The competition will look into two benchmarks of the performances of CPU-Z and the 3DMark11 and the competing brands will try to score the highest numbers in those two fields for HWBOT. The competitors entering into this competition, which is expected to start from the 23rd of this month, will have the motherboards of ASRock FM2 or FM2+ series and the AMD A10 series APUs. The FM2+ series are equipped with the latest chipset from AMD; the A88X.
Earlier we experienced PC’s running Windows 8 were having trouble handling RTC (real clock time), bechmarking website HWBOT banned the entire submissions from Windows 8 OS. Later we got to know that PC’s having Intel processors were the worst affected, while the AMD ones were less affected. The bug was intelligently fixed by an overclocker Christian Ney from Ocaholic who determined the actual root cause to it.
Are you overclocking using Windows 8? Well we have some bad news for you, HWBOT will no longer be accepting Windows 8 benchmark results and they have invalidated all benchmark records that were recorded using Windows 8.
