Futuremark X99 Compatibility issue Fixed!


At launch many reviewers had issues using their new X99 components with Futuremark Products, these issues prevented many review sites from posting 3DMARK or PCMARK Results, including us here at OC3D.

The problem was a compatibility issue with X99 and Futuremark's SystemInfo software, which didn't regognise Haswell-E preventing the Futuremark's software from launching properly, making benchmarking impossible for most users.

 Futuremark X99 Compatibility issue Fixed!


What was the Problem?

Basically this issue was due to Futuremark not getting their X99 Hardware until yesterday (at the time of writing), which prevented them from being able to fix this issue. Happily now this issue has been resolved and benchmarking can continue as normal.

All that is required is that you download and install the latest Futuremark System Info, which is available in the link below. This update should soon be updated automatically by your Futuremark software, but we know how eager you guys can be when it comes to new hardware.



 As always we thank Futuremark for their contribution to PC Benchmarking, providing us with some of our most important testing tools. We are glad that our early issues with X99 have been resolved and hope that Futuremark will continue to stress our PC to the limit for years to come.
