    Palit overclocking with Sandy Bridge Z68

    http://www.3dmark.com/competitions/sandybridgez68/

    Segment 1 - Sandy Bridge Z68

    Hot on the heels of our previous Sandy Bridge contest we have a follow up to highlight advances in integrated graphics performance with the Z68 chipset.

    The Z68 chipset was released just as the last contest was ending and Lucky_n00b already achieved the highest validated 3DMark Vantage score with integrated graphics using the new MSI Z68A-GD80 board. The current record stands at 3988 3DMarks, let's see if anyone can break 4k in this contest!

    The integrated segment uses 3DMark Vantage with the Performance preset.

    Segment 2 - Palit DX 11 Overclocking

    For the other segment, we're teaming up with VGA manufacturer Palit with an OC contest for Palit cards using 3DMark 11 with the Performance preset.

    Palit has a strong line-up of the latest NVIDIA cards with 17 different GeForce 500-series models to choose from ranging from GeForce GT 520 all the way to GeForce GTX 590 with pre-overclocked Sonic-series cards available for select models for additional performance.

    This segment is open to all Palit-brand graphics cards (note that other brands owned by Palit such as Gainward are not included in this contest), single-chip cards only and no SLI.

    As a slight rules change, there are no other hardware restrictions, so all CPU's and chipsets are allowed.

    As the Palit brand can't be automatically detected for all cards, all winners must supply a picture of their platform when overclocking and the serial number of their VGA (found on the card itself).

    Check out Palit's page for this contest:

    and read more about their latest graphics cards here:

    For both segments the usual rules apply. Approved drivers only, just submit your result to 3dmark.com and let me know in this thread or email to pasi(at)futuremark.com if you have any problems.

    Hmh. Looks like a bug in the contest code involving the Z68 chipset detection.

    The necessary people left already for the day, but should show up on the list tomorrow and the result is definitely included in the competition, so no worries.

    How would I go about using my integrated chip instead of my GPU for the z68 contest? Do I have to remove it from my system or is there a way to bypass the driver detection?

    I've not tested it on Z68, but in general in situation like this you would have to switch the monitor cable to the motherboard connector, select from BIOS that the onboard GPU is initialized first and then once in Windows, you may need to disable/uninstall the drivers for the dedicated GPU for the benchmark if it still sees the NVIDIA card on 3dmark.com. Once benchmarking is done, reinstall GPU drivers, switch it as primary in BIOS, switch cable etc...

    ..but this is based on experience with older integrated video + dedicated GPU setups.

    Looking at some of the 'funny' scores in the IGP category, it was probably Virtu i-Mode in action..
