Futuremark Announces Patch for 3DMark03

Ensures Objective Performance Measurements with Latest Hardware & Drivers

Saratoga, California USA - November 11th, 2003 - Futuremark Corporation
announced today the immediate availability of a patch to the 3DMark03
benchmark suite. 3DMark03 is the worldwide standard tool for easily and
objectively measuring and comparing PCs' 3D performance.

Available immediately, this free downloadable software patch provides the
only valid version (340) of 3DMark03. Only scores obtained through the
version 340 and with approved drivers will be used in official statistics,
comparisons and services provided by Futuremark.

According to Tero Sarkkinen, Executive Vice President of Sales and
Marketing at Futuremark Corporation, "the new version is published to make
sure that our customers can get an objective 3DMark03 performance comparison
with the latest hardware and drivers. Our customers will be able to perform
apples-to-apples performance comparisons between the various IHVs' graphics

Parts of the program code have been changed so that possible 3DMark03
specific optimizations in current drivers will not work. 3DMark03 specific
optimizations in drivers are against run rules of 3DMark03, because they
invalidate the performance measurement results and thus make it impossible
to compare performances of different hardware. A list of drivers that have
been tested - and confirmed to produce valid 3DMark03 scores - has been
published on Futuremark's website.
