Per-product registration fee is $5,000 or the participation fee, whichever is smaller. Registration fee is not refundable. Registration fee is a part of the participation fee. See the deadlines page for registration dates. We may be able to offer discounted test benches for small well-prepared entries. Please contact us if interested.

Each participant must declare peak request rate when registering. The total participation fee depends on declared peak request rate and on the time of payment as detailed by the table. For example, the total cost for an 800 req/sec entry registered by October 22 is $5K, while a 1400 req/sec entry registered after October 22 would cost $8K.

If both PolyMix and WebAxe tests are registered, the participation fee is determined by the test with a higher declared request rate.

Extra pairs might be available, but are not guaranteed. Entries that are not paid in full by the start of the cache-off may not be tested. The peak request rate declared at registration time is not reported; only the actual achieved rate is reported.
