My in-client CPU score decreased for no reason whatsoever...

My score decreased from 148 to 155. I didn't change anything either in BIOS or in Windows 10. I had 148 for three months and two days ago it dropped to 155. What is going on? Is my RAM or CPU dying? Or the last GPU driver from Nvidia is so much shit that the CPU has to take up the slag and that's why it slowed down? Please help.

Press the rerun benchmark Button in the lobby and make sure your CPU is not busy during that time.

What do you think I have been doing the last two days? I know that there is the re-run button in the game map lobby.

we didn't change the cpu test in any way and we also can't tell you details about your hardware situation

aside from what geo already told you there is little we can advise you to do

Question. Does the CPU Rating 'evolve'? AKA: When more people come with better and stronger hardware everyone else who has older hardware gets pushed down the rating?

No, it just thows a buch of calculation on the CPU and measures how long does it take to finish. So if the core is busy with something else running at the background, it can affect the score.

It is an Absolute Test then. Interesting. Will come back in a minute

It looks like this:
Code: Select all
function CPUBenchmark()
    --This function gives the CPU some busy work to do.
    --CPU score is determined by how quickly the work is completed.
    local totalTime = 0
    local lastTime
    local currTime
    local countTime = 0
    --Make everything a local variable
    --This is necessary because we don't want LUA searching through the globals as part of the benchmark
    local h
    local i
    local j
    local k
    local l
    local m
    for h = 1, 48, 1 do
        -- If the need for the benchmark no longer exists, abort it now.
        if not lobbyComm then
            return
        end

        lastTime = GetSystemTimeSeconds()
        for i = 1.0, 25.0, 0.0008 do
            --This instruction set should cover most LUA operators
            j = i + i   --Addition
            k = i * i   --Multiplication
            l = k / j   --Division
            m = j - i   --Subtraction
            j = i ^ 4   --Power
            l = -i      --Negation
            m = {'One', 'Two', 'Three'} --Create Table
            table.insert(m, 'Four')     --Insert Table Value
            table.remove(m, 1)          --Remove Table Value
            l = table.getn(m)           --Get Table Length
            k = i < j   --Less Than
            k = i == j  --Equality
            k = i <= j  --Less Than or Equal to
            k = not k
        end
        currTime = GetSystemTimeSeconds()
        totalTime = totalTime + currTime - lastTime

        if totalTime > countTime then
            --This is necessary in order to make this 'thread' yield so other things can be done.
            countTime = totalTime + .125
            WaitSeconds(0)
        end
    end
    BenchTime = math.ceil(totalTime * 100)
end

I have the same problem.
A week ago I had core i 7 3770 and msi H61 motherboard -CPU was about 198
Now I have Core i 7 3770 but motherboard on z77 chipset - and CPU became about 250
what can change?

You should check if “Intel Turbo Boost” is enabled, because you should enable that for achieving higher clock speeds for your processor. It might have been disabled because you switched to a motherboard which doesn’t enable it by default. Happens a lot. Though your problem is most likely caused by a background task, some Anti-Virus probably.
