MIAHALLEN and TiTON competed this past weekend in Gigabtye's GOOC2009 US Regional Qualifier at the Pacific Palms Resort in California. Over a dozen of the Best Benchers in the US were hand selected and invited to compete in this competition. Cpt.Planet also received an invitiation, but due to unforeseen circumstances, was unable to compete. The competition scoring revoled around 2 benches and a total of 3 scores. The two benches were Super Pi 8M and 3DMark06. The scores for the event was SuperPi time, as well as 3DMark06's HDR Score and Overall Points. The HDR Score is pure video card performance, while the over call score is a combination of Video Card and Processor.
At the end of the event, MIAHALLEN took home the 1st place crown with a substantial margin. He took 1st in SuperPi, as well as 4th in 3dMark06 HDR and 4th in 3DMark06. TiTON was battling issues with a bad processor, even swapping out for a new one without any luck. Even with a bad CPU, he managed to take 1st in 3DMark06 HDR as well as 5th overall in 3DMark06.
