    We do update the dates whenever we have tested the drivers (which is under normal conditions the next working day after the release).

    That might be possible. Not sure how it would be done, but again the idea is good. I'll need to have a chat with the guys here at our offices and see what they think.

    The problem with just updating the date is that it is easy for people to miss/ignore as they see fit...

    But how about creating a new list which says which drivers has been tested?

    It doesn't have to say anything about wether or not the drivers passed the test, or why they didn't, but alongside the approved list would give all biz (reviewers, media and enthusiasts) the info needed....

    Doing it this way shouldn't piss of any IHV's or restart a PR war, but just show that you are doing what you say you're doing...

    That is a very shrewd idea MrGaribaldi....

    Thank you!
    Wasn't really expecting any praise for the idea though [​IMG]

    Now to see if Futuremark feels the same :)
