We test each vendor's drivers against our driver approval policy and our benchmark rules to ensure they do not unfairly influence or manipulate benchmark scores.

You might see this message if you are using a new graphics driver that has only recently been released. We usually test and approve new WHQL-certified drivers within a few working days. Once the driver is approved, your benchmark result will be approved automatically as well.

You will also see this message when using beta, 'hotfix,' or other non-WHQL drivers. In these cases, you will need to wait for WHQL-certified drivers before you will be able to submit valid results.
