AQUAMARK3

Aquamark3

I like Aquamark3 since it is based on an actual game engine and allows you a plethora of innovative options in the professional version.

Below are the results from the full Aquamark3 benchmark at the default clock speeds of 500/1000.

Aquamark3 Benchmark Results @ 500/1000

Ramping up to my overclocked settings of 555/1050 yielded only marginal improvement of ~2-3fps for each test as shown below.

3DMark2003


I didn't spend much time with 3DMark2003 but I do have the overall score. Overclocking at 555/1050 impressively ran through 3DMark2003 with no lockups. The score was only 20 points lower at 500/1000 so the overclocking just proved stability but with no major gain in performance paired with my particular CPU and system.

Note: It came to my attention late in this review that the 53.03 Forceware drivers are not listed on Futuremark's Approved Drivers page. Timing issues did not permit me to revert back to the approved 52.16 Forceware drivers but I hope to update this part of the review in the future.

UPDATE: Scores now shown below with 52.16 drivers.
