Written by Slobodan Simic

No date set

Futuremark has deleayed its PC benchmark 3DMark11 software suite to and undisclosed date as there are some bugs that need to be squashed.

It looks like Futurmark's DirectX 11 benchmark will not show up today, as it was previously announced, and will be delayed due to some serious issues. Futuremark didn't release a new date, but rather said that it will be done when it's done.

Hopefully, we'll have a chance to try out new DirectX 11 cards on 3DMark11 before the end of this year.

I'm sure we'll see it on Dec 7th, the "release date" for the 570. Futuremark also needs time to "un-optimize" the benchamrk for the 6970/50, which was also delayed.

I'd rather see it be delayed than try to release it now and patch it later

One easy way to do this is by increasing tessalation from 6-9 (enough for most games etc) to 15-20 but not for long. Cayman will have 2 tesselators and as one friend of mine with connections at Amd said 7xxx series will have 2x the tesselation power of 6970.

if only certain game developers had this attitude to product releases.if it's broken, don't sell it.

Then we'd probably only have 0.005% of the games we have today.

No piece of software is ever 100% bug free, just functional enough to ship. The problem being the wildly different interpretations and measurement systems of "functional enough".
