3DMark 11 Upgraded to v1.01

Just weeks after its release, Futuremark has released a new patch for 3DMark 11, upgrading the new DirectX 11-oriented benchmarking software to v1.01. The patch addresses various issues and adds functions to all three versions: the Basic, Advanced and Professional Editions. Here's the full list of changes:

All Editions

  • Fixed an issue with SystemInfo that prevented the Physics and Combined tests from running.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a crash if the DirectX 11 API or .NET was not available.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a crash if the number of system GPUs was unknown.
  • Letterboxing and scaling now works with wide displays.
  • The benchmark UI is now minimized during the benchmark run.
  • Improved result security when submitting to 3dmark.com.
  • Added automatic update notification.
  • Updated SystemInfo component to version

Advanced and Professional Edition only

  • Added option for manual GPU Count selection to the Advanced tab.
  • Added Scaling Mode selection to the Advanced tab, choose from centered or stretched.
  • Results tab now shows the individual scores for each of the six tests.

Professional Edition only

  • Demo audio now works when running from the command line.
  • Image Quality tool now handles unexpected parameters correctly.
  • Image Quality tool now works correctly with the reference rasterizer option.

Also, SLI is currently still unavailable in 3DMark 11 until Nvidia releases a new set of drivers.

    Great -- had participated in trying to fix the physics test problem and with the patches had finally gotten it working -- just updated and now it will not run the physics test again !! (guess the patch may not completely fix that bug !)

    Toms should do a review-ish thing of it. Just an overview of all the tests, and how it runs on your current test rigs.
