Update on 3DMark 11 release date
Hello Nate

Over the weekend we made the difficult decision to postpone the launch of 3DMark 11 by a few days.

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 patching the benchmark immediately after launch.

It might take a day, it might be a 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 license. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Warm Regards,
Oliver

Good for futuremark.

I'd rather the product be delayed a bit than release a sketchy benchmark.
