Within a week of it's release, we already see a patch become available for FutureMark's latest benchmarking software. It didn't take long for enthusiasts to realise that there was a relatively simple method of inflating scores beyond what the actual hardware would be producing. With it being such a major issue in terms of ridiculous and unfair orb results, FutureMark have promptly fixed it with this hotfix, bringing the version number up to 1.1.0. A brief official fixlist can be seen below.


* A possible exploit to inflate results in 3DMark05 version 1.0.0 has been fixed.
* Updated Entech DLL.
* One incorrect unit in the MS Excel importer has been fixed.


Please note that in order to submit any 3DMark05 results to the ORB, the 3DMark05 version needs to be 1.1.0.
