I'm especially pleased to see updated upload security and subscore availability. Nice to see FM actually listening to the benchmarking community.

Works for me in one of my eyefinity screens rather then cropped and messed barely viewable, although the scores/fps seems a lot lower then before. I think they fixed one thing and broke another. Why did they rush this product to release, its clear its not a finished product.
