3DMark11 Basic vs Advanced - Noob question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Are these 2 versions the ''same'' in the sense that the Basic version contains (coding-wise) the Advanced version's features but that portion is simply locked. After entering a 'code' into the Basic version, that previously locked portion/coding will become available?

In 3DMark 11 Basic Edition the demo resolution is fixed at 720p while in 3DMark 11 Advanced Edition users can choose from a wide range of custom resolutions, take a look here ...

Yes, I know the features of each one. I just wish to know if the coding of the 2 versions are the same, except the advanced features are 'locked up' but nevertheless still exist within the Basic version.

Followup question:

I got a free 3DMark 11 key to the Advanced version from my purchase of a GTX570.
How do I use it to get the full Advanced version?
The 3DMark site does not seem to allow me to download the Advanced version without paying first.
