It’s not common to see Futuremark release more than one patch for a product within the span of a couple of months, but when that product is about as complicated as a game, it’s easy to understand. Back in March, the company issued a small post-release update – namely to add official Windows 8 support – and this week, it’s released something a little more significant, version 1.1.0.
The biggest feature in this patch isn’t so much a feature but a fix: 4x GPU support. According to Futuremark’s President, Oliver Baltuch, adding this support was no easy task. It took much poring over the code to see why the program wouldn’t scale as it should, and finally, the problem was discovered and subsequently handled. While few of us out there are blessed with 4 GPUs, this is sure to make overclockers very, very happy.
Here’s the official patch summary, with note of a new test:
As always, you can head on over to the official site to snag the latest version. If you own the app on Steam, you’ll likely already have it.
