Enter to Win HERE - BTR's July Contest [Updated]
#1
UPDATE: We simplified the contest a bit - now there is just ONE question you have to guess at - just one number to post.

Quote:We simplified our contest so that this is what you will need to guess:
  • What is BTR's sample of the GTX 1060's overclocked performance in 3DMark's FireStrike Extreme?

BTR would like to reward our community members who contribute so much to our site.  We are continuing our series of contests by offering one new AAA PC title as July's Grand Prize.  For our second BTR contest, we are giving away a key for a PC game of the winner's choice* (under $60) in a GTX 1060 related contest starting tomorrow, Friday, July 8th at 9 AM PT, and ending July 18th at 11 PM PDT.

The winner will be announced on BTR's community forum in the contest thread at 9 AM PT on July 20, and a game key will be awarded to the winner within 24 hours after they respond*.  The runner up will get a Telltale Humble Bundle which keys may be redeemed on Steam*

All that you have to do to enter to win an AAA PC game of your choice (under $60) is to post in our contest thread and guess the performance and overclocking results of our reviewer sample of the Founders Edition of the GTX 1060 that will be published at 6 AM PT on July 19.  You should also tell us what PC game that you would like to win.  All of the respondents will be put into a drawing, and the closest guess will decide the Grand Prize winner and the runner-up.  Each contestant has one guess which must be finalized by the time the thread is locked when the contest ends on July 18.

BTR is still a small community, and there is a very good chance that YOU may be a winner if you enter.  We are also looking for sponsorship for future contests with additional prizes beyond PC games that we will announce as this contest series continues.

BTR's benchmarking platform has been upgraded from Devil's Canyon to Skylake. Who knows what we will uncover about the new Pascal 1060 on July 19?

These are exciting times to be a PC gamer!  Make sure you enter our contest and you may win a AAA PC game of your choice.  The runner up will get a Humble Bundle of Telltale games.

... and happy gaming!

Alright here is my entry:

I believe that the overclocked Firestrike Extreme score of the GTX 1060 will be 6800.
#3
You're welcome. And definitely, GOOD LUCK to everyone who enters!!

I want you to realize that your guess may be updated/changed right up to the day the thread is locked (July 18/10 PM PT)

1. We only need max stable OC on the core and

2. Firestrike ***EXTREME*** overclocked results
#4
Is it the overall score or the graphics score that we need? The graphics score is higher.
#5
Ok I got this......im confidant I'll finally get rise of the tomb raider.
Let me go do some calculations. :)

The overall score.

I am using an i7-6700K turboed to 4.4GHz with 16GB DDR4 at 3200MHz on a ASRock Z7170M MB

Good luck to everyone!

It's too complex to give two questions to guess at.

Just one - revised rules

Overclocked Firestrike Extreme score is all you have to guess at.

And the closest guess wins.
#8
Ok, I'm going to guess 3900, given that a 1070 gets 7795 and 1060 has half the shaders of 1070. Probably completely wrong, but, that's my guess for whatever it is worth.
#9
Everyone is guessing. You have as good a chance to win as everyone else.

Let me give everyone a tip. According to the rules, you can change you guess up to the last minute when the contest thread is locked.

That means everyone can use "strategy" to narrow your guesses as we get closer to the review publication. There are a lot of variables as it comes down to a single sample of an overclocked Founders Edition of the GTX 1060 running FireStrike Extreme.
;)

Here's what we know about the GTX 1060 so far:
http://www.babeltechreviews.com/gtx-1060...ly-19-249/
Quote:While 1080 and 1070 are based on the same Pascal GPU (GP104), the GTX 1060 is built on a new GP106 GPU which allows Nvidia to target the same popular upper-midrange part of the market as the RX 480. The GTX 1060 features 1,280 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 8Gbps, and a boost clock of 1.7GHz. Unlike the reference RX 480 which is a poor overclocker because of its reference cooler and single 6-pin power connector and 150W power draw, Nvidia says the GTX 1060 can be easily overclocked to 2GHz

My guess is 10,275!

Ten thousand two hundred and seventy-five.
