3DMark Vantage Interview at PCGH

With Oliver Baltuch and Co.

| Posted: Apr 14, 2008 3:13 pm

Our friends over at PCGH in Germany have conducted an English interview with two well known chaps from Futuremark, Oliver Baltuch and Dr. Jukka Makinen.

 

They get down and dirty with a bunch of questions addressing the upcoming version of 3DMark Vantage. While not all questions could be answered due to the unreleased nature of the product, it is still an interesting read.

 


PCGH: Will Vantage 3DMark have the same business model like PCMark Vantage with a free trail version version that only runs once, a basic edition for 7 dollars and the Advanced version for $ 20?

 

Oliver Baltuch: Yes. The new model we started with PCMark ® Vantage was to have a trial version for no cost and then a Basic Edition which could be used over and over for less than 5 euros. This gives us greater freedom to use higher end tooling (like Softimage XSI) and computers to really concentrate on delivering the kind of quality products that are expected by those same customers. The price of the Advanced and Professional editions have stayed the same at $ 19.95 (Approx. 12 Euros) and $ 495 (Approx. 330 Euros).
