Powercolor hosts new contest

Written by Slobodan Simic

Lowest possible 3DMark 03
In a somewhat contradicting contest to that by Gainward, where you need to pack some serious punch in your rig, Powercolor has teamed up with our friends from Techpowerup.com for a neat contest where you need to have the lowest possible score in Futuremark's 3DMark 03 benchmark.

In order to make things a bit more challenging, notebooks, netbooks and non DirectX 9 cards are excluded from the contest but you still can tweak your old desktop or one with onboard graphics to get the lowest possible score in 3DMark 03. The prizes include Powercolor's dual Radeon HD 6970 X2 prototype for the lowest score and a Powercolor Radeon HD 6870 X2 for one person that will be randomly picked from a list of valid entries.

All you need to do in order to get into this contest is grab Wizzard's GPU-Z 0.5.5., fill up the form and get the lowest possible 3DMark 03 or keep your fingers crossed that you are lucky enough to be randomly picked.

You can check out more details here.

That's the most stupid contest I've evern seen. Most hardware enthusiast have pretty powerful setups. 3DMark03 is severely CPU bound by now, at least there's plenty of Intel motherboards with Intel Graphics that sucks on performance, and some AMD 760G graphic crap which should be easily attainable. Oh well.
