Futuremark Announces Revised PCMark 7 Launch Date
Futuremark has been accepting pre-orders for PCMark 7 since March 22, 2011, and it was supposed to have been released on May 3, 2011 (last Tuesday). A last minute bug discovery prompted Futuremark to postpone the release, because even though it was a "simple matter" to fix, "making any changes to the software at this point also necessitates a further round of testing with our industry partners which takes time," the company explained.
PCMark 7 will ship in three versions, including:
- PCMark 7 Basic Edition (Free)
- PCMark 7 Advanced Edition ($40)
- PCMark 7 Professional Edition ($995)
We already have a copy of PCMark 7 in hand and will use it for future reviews published after May 12, 2011.
