This is the total knowledge of what went on to get the point values for these new projects. Anything else is just speculation and not useful.

It happens on my 2P E5-2620 as well. p8101 provides a 75% bonus over vanilla smp and p8102 provides a 160% bonus over vanilla smp. I believe these percentages are very similar to those of a 4P 617x.

So opposing views get moderated?

No, you just are being asked not to discuss benchmarking in a thread not about benchmarking. You could start a new thread if you still want to post benchmarks.

The problem with reducing points is you scale back and come to a point where smp that takes 1hr to complete is worth more than a 2 day wu.
The only way to fix it is to realign the smp qrb curve... and its no small fix...
So the best thing is to ofc fix both curves and have a fixed gap so they both scale the same with performance.
But second best is to start them at 20% boost for the minimum requirement machine and if people can make faster rigs... don't punish them for it. If they want to invest Thousands into the project don't repeatedly punish them for it.
