  • For David(Passmark) re Top 20 Fastest Desktops

    David, What happened to the Top 20 Fastest Desktops? The same person with AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and X570 AORUS ULTRA motherboard uploaded and occupied top 6 spots. Will you only accept the best scores? Why will not allow us to even upload scores if it was within 5% of the last score?

    I've excluded the similar benchmark from the user and have regenerated the Top lists.

    The 5% difference before allowing uploads is a quick check to cut down on volume uploads. I won't document the methods to circumvent the check, but there are ways to get around it. Likely this user figure it out or they simply just did a wipe/reinstall or maybe it is an internet café/computer lab with similar spec'd machines.

      Hi, Richard, thanks for looking into it. But It happened again. No.1 and No.2 are the same person. No. 4 and No.7 are the same person. No. 5 and No. 6 are the same PC.

          Hi Oz,

          It happened again. #4, #11 and #12 are same person. #8, #9, #13, #15 and #20 are the same PC. #6, #16, #17 and #19 are the same person.

            We try to prevent the same PC from appearing in the charts, however, we don't prevent the people with multiple computer setups or upgrades to their PC from submitting benchmarks. For example

            #4, #11 and #12
            There are some slight hardware variations (11900K vs 11900KF, RTX 3070/3080/3090), but nothing indicating they are trying to juice the charts.

            #8, #9, #13, #15 and #20 are the same PC
            The hardware seem to be similar, we will look into them and clean some of these up if necessary.

              HI Richard, Can you update the list? Top PCs have about 5~6 duplicates on the top 20 list.

                We started implementing unique system hashes a while back, but that doesn't prevent an user that swap parts or upgrade different components from claiming multiple spots on the fastest CPU charts, e.g. Below is the top three fastest desktop as of Nov 23, 2021. It's possible that it could be the same user or it could be multiple users with similar components. The OS if different and the Drive is different.
