Just noticed at B3D's forums that someone had already benched fx5900u and Radeon 9800Pro with this. Radeon is leading by ~15%.

Did they have the final version or a pre version of Aquamark 3? I'm wondering if these results are final ...

Alexander (Massive Development's MD) didn't want to comment whether those benchmarks are reliable or not.

For more authorative results, comments and analysis see here:

http://arc.aquamark3.com/forum/showt...=&threadid=109

Also Wolfgang mentioned AM3 pushes about 2.5 times the shaders and polygons of a advanced DX9 game - namely Aquanox 2 - DX9 shader version.

So wait less than 3 days and see the results for yourself.

Thank you EnvyNews for the download, it's nice and quick.
