View Full Version : wPrime - hwbot edition launched

12-19-2006, 01:36 AM

We are happy to announce that wPrime, an new benchmark application that takes full benefit of having a multiplecore processor, has been added to the hwbot benchmark suite.

wPrime has the same ease of use as SuperPi, but has 4 key benefits:

multithreaded: take full use of your dual / quad core processor
simplified: click 32M for a quick test, 1024M for a stability test. No 10 different methods to choose from.
hwbot integration / one click comparison: no need to manually enter your result on hwbot, or post it in a bot monitored forum. Just click ’submit’ and you can compare your result to ten thousands of other overclockers. If you belong to a team which uses a bot to monitor your forum, the bot will will update your forum ranking too.
hardware recognition: in contrary to superpi, wPrime dedects your hardware automatically.

The current version is v1.28. Previously submitted results by beta testers with a client < 1.27 will be deleted.
