Futuremark 3DMark 11 Delayed – Benchmarkers Not Happy
Andy Ruffell / 8 years ago
Benchmarkers won’t be happy to hear that Futuremark’s Latest 3DMark11 has been delayed due to bug fixing.
We have heard information from the vice president of Futuremark Mr. Oliver Baltuch citing:
Over the weekend we made the difficult decision to postpone the launch of 3DMark 11 by a few days. Our aim is to provide accurate, reliable and consistant results from the start. With that goal in mind we taking some extra time to fix a couple of difficult bugs rather than patching the benchmark immediately after release. It might take one day, it might take one week but either way we’ll be in touch again soon to confirm the new launch date and send you your review copy and complimentary press licence. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The email recieved by press and eager users points out why it’s been delayed, granted it’s not going to be what people waiting for the benchmarking tool are going to want to hear but working on fixing bugs can never be construed as a bad thing.
Common rumour seems to put the release date back to December 3rd.
This delay will certainly annoy those people who have 3DMark on pre-order, but Futuremark are hoping that a free copy of the online shoot ’em up Shattered Horizon will soften the blow somewhat.
