HWBOT does Windows 8 overclocking systems under the spell

HWBOT, one of the largest collection of overclocking results and competitions, Windows 8 excommunicated. The results achieved with Microsoft’s latest operating system, would not be reliable.

The reliability problems of benchmark results with Windows 8, the website do decide to delete. overclocking all previous records with that operating system Overclock and benchmark results that run under Windows 8, are not included in the lists. The reason for this is the probability that the results are not correct. When under clocked systems, the internal timing of Windows 8 is not correct, leading to incorrectie. This can be exploited to publish at overclocking competitions or rankings better results.

Dallas rtc-chip The problem with Windows 8 is in the real-time clock, or rtc. The system uses that clock signal as an internal reference in order to keep track of time. When the system runs at the standard clock, the internal rtc-time, true, but when the system is clocked, the rtc is also slower. If the system is not connected to the Internet, it is not detected and corrected, network connections are often disabled for a small performance gain when overclocking. At a lower internal clock can be a benchmark more frames per ‘second’ generation, because it takes a ‘second’ longer.

In one test, the base clock of Windows 8 system under clocked six percent, and showed that all benchmarks scored better, usually the same difference of six percent. It not only scored better fps benchmarks, as well as benchmarks Prime95. For this reason, no test result that Windows 8 was achieved more accepted in the HWBOT database.

For Windows 7 and earlier versions is under clocks no problem. Then the hardware rtc used. When Windows 8 is that hardware rtc not used because not all platforms are equipped with Windows 8 should run a hardware rtc. To a possible solution to the problem has been found, it is examined what the new and old results is done.
