It sure is on our mainpage. Listed in the press releases list, and posted in the news aswell!

Anyway, I'll post the same here as I have posted on some other boards.

If you guys have any questions concerning the ground rules, please post them in this thread, or over at our boards in this thread. We will collect the most frequently asked questions and publish a QA within the next few days. Thanks!

Best,

Nick / Futuremark Corp.

Those guidelines are what most people want.

Nvidia with current drivers are in trouble, let's see how FM will enforce this guidelines.
