This is very interesting, but try techspy.

It kinda fits both sides. This affects the gaming world heavily seeing its true.

I am going to kill HWBot if this affects future PC Halo Games -......-

malokevi1674d ago

I can't make sense of this. Anyone...?

codelyoko1674d ago

Apparently the benchmark thinks that Windows 8 PC has done X amount of work in 5 minutes when in actuality 10 minutes has passed - for underclock and vice versa.

Doesn't overclocking void the warranty... so its basically illegit anyways? Why would MS design their OS around overclocking websites? Maybe I'm missing something.

No, overclocking isn't illegal.

You can even BUY overclocking protection from Intel.

malokevi1674d ago

Not "illegal"... just not legitimate as far as licensing and warranty protection...

@malokevi Sadly they cant, sites such as HWBot are essential to Microsofts PR. Overclocking, Benchmarks and Gaming are the core to any good PC Company. Because of this they will loose a lot and the Windows 8 Only Games will suffer too.

I'd say the majority of overclockers use the multiplier without touching the BCLK anyway.
