We concluded day 1 at 8 pm, after a long 10-hour session. All teams reached at least one category win, and most of them decided to put more emphasis on the graphics benchmarks on day 2. The US team is getting strong now, but there are still three hours left for the others to make a comeback. Germany lost more than an hour, benchmarking on a broken multimeter, which reported wrong voltage readings. Italy is trying to make further modifications. Taiwan has been working on their liquid cooling solution for graphics, adding salt to the water to reduce the freezing point of the water.
Here are the scores as tracked until Sunday, December 14 at 12:45 pm:

Scores are being posted every few minutes. France still has to work on the graphics benchmarks.
The winners will be determined by distributing scores for each category. The category winner receives a 100 points, the second place receives 60 points, the third place 30 points, the fourth gets 20 points, and the last one still gets 10 points. We did not want to provide lots of points for second and third places, as we wanted to avoid getting a winner, which may not have won a single benchmark. Looking at the current results, this would be the outcome:
|SuperPi 1.5 1M||10||20||30||60||100|
|SuperPi 1.5 32M||10||20||60||100||30|
|wPrime 1.55 32M||100||20||60||10||30|
|wPrime 1.55 1024M||100||10||30||20||60|
