PCMark 8 Updated, Gets Windows 8.1 Compatibility

Futuremark has just made available a new version of its PCMark 8 benchmarking software. This latest build (1.1.111) brings Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 compatibility, fixes, an updated SystemInfo (v4.21), detailed hardware monitoring graphs, faster SystemInfo scanning, plus new options for OpenCL testing (the Home and Creative benchmarks can now utilize OpenCL acceleration).

PCMark 8 is currently available only in the Professional Edition (which costs $1495) but Futuremark is planning to also release Basic (free) and Advanced ($49.95) editions.

Lets hope so. $1500 is a bit much. ;)
