In between the series of party dinners and liters of champagne to celebrate the end of the year, the HWBOT staff cordially invites you to join this year's HWBOT Country Cup 2010.
For those who are not yet familiar with the concept of the Country Cup, here's a short introduction. Unlike many other overclocking competitions, the Country Cup is all about the national pride. When you clock, you clock for your country as the stage ranking is not based on a single submission but on the average of top-3 submissions per country. This means that in order to score points in a stage you will need to find two fellow countrymen to make a submission.
On Christmas-day, the competition kicked off with the first stage: 'Single VGA Heaven DX11', which runs until January, 10. In a few days, the second stage will open and will also run for 16 days. In total, this competition counts 6 totally different stages each with their own specific hardware limitations. Teamwork is vital!
- Stage 1: "Single VGA Heaven DX11" (starts 25/12)
