Velocity Micro Joins Futuremark's Benchmark Development Program

| Posted: Jun 3, 2005 2:00 pm

Futuremark have just issued out a press release detailing new ties with "Velocity Micro, Inc." (a leading provider of high performance PCs) to be a part of their Benchmark Development Program for the highly popular 3DMark and PCMark software benchmarking suites.

 

The Benchmark Development Program (BDP) is Futuremark's cooperative relationship with leading hardware and technology manufacturers aimed at the design of unbiased, high-quality benchmark software. Futuremark provides BDP Members with specifications and pre-production versions of benchmarks and, in turn, evaluates the feedback provided by the Members.

 

You can also see who else is already affiliated with the program at this section of FutureMark's website folks.

 


"We are delighted that Velocity Micro has joined our Benchmark Development Program. Its participation in our program will greatly benefit all users of independent benchmarks," said Tero Sarkkinen, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Futuremark. "We look forward to Velocity Micro taking an active role in the program and lending a unique perspective to our benchmark development process."

 

"We're excited to partner with Futuremark on this endeavor," said Randy Copeland, Velocity Micro President & CEO. "We recognize its importance in the benchmarking community and applaud Futuremark's effort in creating standardized benchmarks for the industry."
