AquaMark3 that's pretty cool stuff
 
Just read the news about Aquamark 3:

Massive Development has published new documentation about their upcoming "DirectX 9" benchmark AquaMark3. The documentation covers technical information and reveals many of the special features unique to the benchmark.

The AquaMark3 Overdraw Visualisation Technique (OVIST)
The AquaMark3 Shader Visualisation Technique (SVIST)
The AquaMark3 Pixel Perfomance Measurment (PIXPM)
The AquaMark3 Tri Score System (TRISCORE)
The AquaMark3 Automated Test Technique (AUTT)

Sound pretty cool. I had a look at the docs and I really liked it. It is a great idea to visualise the overdraw of the benchmark so we can exaclty see what is going on. The coolest thing IMHO is the SVIST mode :D

From what I can see this benchmark will give us much more information about what is going on than other benchmarks. If I look at the quite extensive documentation which is already online I personally cant wait to get my hands on this!

SVIST RULEZ :D

Somebody has a username that's one letter away from Hellbinder. Careful with the ban button, people :D

Let's hope that it IS awesome ;)

I checked their forums and found that one of the developers mentioned that there will be an online database like Futuremark's ORB for Aquamark 3. I think this is really a good move. As far as I know Futuremark is currently the only benchmark with stuff like this. Let's hope that there will be some competition :D
