Espoo, Finland – January 29th, 2008 – Futuremark (www.futuremark.com), is
proud to announce the formation of a group named the Futuremark Games Studio.
For the past 10 years, Futuremark has been pushing the boundaries of PC 3D
graphics performance with its 3DMark® series, which has become by far the
world’s most popular benchmarking software. The 3DMark series combines stunning
3D art with world class engines from Direct3D 6 up to Direct3D 10. "Futuremark
Games Studio is committed to developing original IP games with the highest
quality game play combined with our established track record of creating
blow-your-socks-off visuals", said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Futuremark
Corporation. "For years, our fans have been asking us when will we start making
games. Very soon they are going to get it – and then some!"

Over the past 10 years Futuremark’s team of brilliant artists and engineers has
created remarkably beautiful demos and benchmarks for a variety of clients to
show off the abilities of their platforms. Although the new studio will
demonstrate its ability to seamlessly integrate the latest technologies into its
engines, its mission is to build world class games that bring new and
entertaining game play to gamers. This includes games and their engines that
deliver stellar performance even on modest platforms right up to the most
enthusiastic levels of performance hardware.
