A new DirectX 9 compatible benchmark from massive Development
This is AquaMark 3 - unfortionately the programmers, Massive development, do not exsist anymore. That does not mean you can't use this great tool though ! A new DirectX 9 compatible benchmark from massive Development. The latest graphics cards on the market are almost all DirectX9 compatible these days, and we can also see an increasing number of games utilizing the new DX9 features. To be able to see how well a graphics card is performing in this new challenging DirectX 9 environment, AquaMark was developed.
AquaMark 3, however, is not solely a DirectX9 benchmark; if you are working with a DirectX 8 or 7 compatible graphics card, you will still be able to use it just with a lot of graphical features missing. Make no mistake, AquaMark3 is a DirectX 9 benchmark. But since it's based on a real game engine it has fallbacks to DirectX 8 and even DirectX 7.
This version supports a wide set of features like the basic AquaMark3 TRISCORE test and free online access to ARC, the on-line AquaMark Result Comparator.
Definitely worth the 63MB download.
