Intel commissions multi-threaded game benchmark

Hexus learned that the first multi-threaded benchmark from Futuremark will be launched soon. A new benchmark called Mechanoids ,commissioned by Intel, will enable consumers to see the performance of a threaded gaming environment.
We currently cannot confirm the launch date for this application but we hear that it is real soon. Of course, as consumers ourselves, we are wary of the fact that Intel are 'paying' for this application to be created, but as long as it does not unfairly slow down performance of other multi-core processors from other manufacturers, it should be interesting.
