Espoo, Finland – January 24, 2008 – uturemark Corporation, www.futuremark.com, announced today the full release of the „Price and Performance Information Page“ on YouGamers.com.

What makes the service unique is the amount of real-world data used to calculate the system performance. Futuremark currently receives over 20,000 benchmark results from 3DMark06 each day which provide real-life performance statistics contributing to a more accurate service for the informed shopper.
