3DMark 11 Gets an Update

We’ve been following the 3DMark11 story for a while now, including the release delay as well as its actual release. Well now it seems the popular DirectX 11 benchmarking tool has been patched; version 1.01 further fixes some bugs and adds a couple of features the community requested. However, SLI will still not work on 3DMark11 until nVidia releases a new version of the Forceware drivers.

Can your PC make it look this good?

Here’s the list of changes:__STARTQUOTE__3DMark 11 version 1.01 release notes
