Futuremark originally delayed the release of its much anticipated 3DMark 11 benchmark in order to “fix a couple of difficult bugs rather than patching the benchmark immediately after launch.” Mission accomplished, as today’s update to version 1.01 doesn’t quite qualify as “immediately,” though it does come just two weeks after the benchmark went live.
“Unfortunately such wide scale use has brought to light a few issues that weren’t caught by our own testing,” Futuremark told us in an email. “So today we are releasing an update to 3DMark 11 to fix those problems and add a couple of requested features. Note, until Nvidia release new drivers SLI will continue to be unavailable in 3DMark 11.”
There are eight fixes and feature additions for all editions for 3DMark 11, three for the Advanced and Professional editions only, and three for the just the Professional edition.
