Futuremark Tour and Interview

I'm sure that I don't need to write any long, rambling introduction to fill you in on the world of Futuremark - Amongst the enthusiast (and indeed wider) community their name is ubiquitous, and synonymous with the world of PC benchmarking, and 3D graphics benchmarking in particular, that they represent.

With that reputation in mind, it is with a great sense of excitement and honour that we took the opportunity to send two of Elite Bastards' intrepid reporters to Futuremark's head office in Espoo, Finland, where not only were they given an exclusive first tour of the building which has seen the development of all those various versions of 3DMark, but also got the opportunity to interview Futuremark's very own Nicklas Renqvist on a whole host of different subjects related to the company.

Elite Bastards: Will the next 3DMark still be made for Windows XP?

Futuremark: Nope, the next 3DMark is a D3D10/Vista only benchmark.
Interesting!

"die-hard" overclockers still use 3DMark2001SE; so I don't think we'll have to go "all vista" right away
