Via this newsflash article we'd like to inform you that hardware, global and WR points have been enabled for the HWBOT X265 1080P and HWBOT X265 4K benchmarks. The points are being calculated at the moment and should be added to your profiles shortly.
The X265 benchmark has been at HWBOT since August 2015, when Czech overclocker Havli added API support to his existing benchmark application. Havli is known as the curator of the website HW-Museum. Just like GPUPI the benchmark has been proven quite popular among the HWBOT community as the presets have accumulated over 7,500 benchmark submissions. This is exceptional for a benchmark without points. More importantly, the benchmark is allowed on ALL Windows versions, including Windows 8/10, as long as the HPET timer is enabled.
In October last year Havli updated the benchmark to v2.0.0 which includes hardware monitoring as well as improved performance across a variety of processor architectures. You can download the latest version of the benchmark from our cloud storage service here.
With Global points enabled, the benchmarks will also join our list of applications with official World Record designation. You can find the Hall of Fame of the 1080P preset here and the Hall of Fame of the 4K preset here.
