Today we will take a high-level look into the world of benchmarking: cpu benchmarks, benchmark tools and much more. Specifically, we will be looking at thirteen point scoring benchmarks listed at hwbot.org as well as the more common utilities used for overclocking and submitting scores to their system. We also touch on system information and monitoring programs.
For those that have not heard of HWBot, it is the premier online repository for submitting PC benchmarks and as a hardware specification resource. They also feature "the world's only non-stop overclocking competition platform known as the HWBoints rankings. 20,239 overclockers from all over the world compete in more than ten of the most popular benchmarks in thousands of hardware categories, resulting in over 340,000 benchmark results, a figure that is increasing by over 300 every day".
