Extra time taken to fix bugs.
Jarmo Kokko, senior editor at YouGamers, a PC gaming portal owned by FutureMark announced on the site’s forums that the much awaited graphic benchmark tool 3DMark 11 has been delayed indefinitely. The software was due to release today, November 30, 2010.
“Our aim is that 3DMark 11 should provide accurate, reliable and consistent results from the start. With that goal in mind we are taking some extra time now to fix a couple of difficult bugs rather than patch the benchmark immediately after launch.” Kokko said.
“It might take a day, it might be a week, but either way we’ll confirm the new launch date as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
On a personal note, Kokko added that the company is ensuring that the delay is not more than a couple of days, though they won’t announce a date till they are cent percent sure.
Well, there goes our evening of gawking at benchmarks.
