This time we have two different categories for Gigabyte motherboards with Intel chipsets.
As an additional twist, in the "Any GPU"-segment your overall score will be your score in 3DMark Vantage _plus_ your score in 3DMark06.
You can enter this segment with either one of the benchmarks, but naturally your score just increases if you run the other one as well.
Contest runs from four weeks from November 1st to November 28th.
There are prizes for top 3 and lucky draw prizes given out each week randomly drawn among all users who submit a valid score for the contest with either 3DMark Vantage or 3DMark06.
Here are the requirements for the two categories:
The GIGABYTE H55 Integrated Graphics Competition
GIGABYTE-brand motherboard with Intel H55 chipset.
Integrated Intel HD Graphics only, no discrete graphics cards allowed.
3DMark Vantage - Entry preset
Your Integrated Graphics score is 3DMark Vantage (E) score.
The GIGABYTE X58/P55/H55 Overall Competition
GIGABYTE-brand motherboard with Intel X58, P55 or H55 chipset.
The graphics card manufacturer, based on the subsystem vendor ID must be GIGABYTE,ATI/AMD or NVIDIA, graphics cards from other manufacturers are not allowed.
Where do we post our scores. Not sure what ORB is.
ORB is the Futuremark online service that should be easy to reach with both benchmarks once you've run the benchmark.
Remember you also have to register for the ORB so we know who to contact if you win and make the score public for validation (except if your using the trial edition of 3DMark Vantage, then you will be identified through the email you requested the trial key with).
So after submitting the score:
1) Choose register from the left hand column and fill in the form.
2) Log in
3) Click on "My results"
4) Click on "Make Public" on the result you're entering to the contest
