Benchmarks: 3DMark 2001SE, Aquamark, QIII w/h AA

3DMark2001SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

3DMark2001SE Benchmark Results
Video Card 3DMarks Ranking
1. AIW Radeon 8500 2xP 6906
2. AIW Radeon 8500 2xQ 5771
3. AIW Radeon 8500 4xP 3459
4. AIW Radeon 8500 4xQ 2788

The performance drop when 2xP AA is enabled is about 25% which is a little better then expected. Selecting Quality AA modes seems to degrade performance by an additional 15-20%.

AquaMark Source: Massive

AquaMark is another DirectX 8 benchmark. Using vertex shaders, any card that is DirectX8 compatible will not just have a huge speed boost, the image will also look better. Default test has 24 MB worth of textures.

AquaMark 1024x768
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. AIW Radeon 8500 2xP 42
2. AIW Radeon 8500 2xQ 33.6
3. AIW Radeon 8500 4xP 22.4
4. AIW Radeon 8500 4xQ 17.7

AquaMark is very demanding on the GPU, only 2xP at 1024x768 gives acceptable frame rates.

AquaMark 1600x1200
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. AIW Radeon 8500 2xP 31
2. AIW Radeon 8500 2xQ 19.9
3. AIW Radeon 8500 4xP -
4. AIW Radeon 8500 4xQ -

Neither 4x forms of AA will work at 1600x1200.

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Video Card FPS Ranking
1. AIW Radeon 8500 2xP 104.3
2. AIW Radeon 8500 2xQ 90.9
3. AIW Radeon 8500 4xP 49.9
4. AIW Radeon 8500 4xQ 38.9

Quake III Arena MAX 1600x1200 demo001
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. AIW Radeon 8500 2xP 35
2. AIW Radeon 8500 2xQ 27.1
3. AIW Radeon 8500 4xP -
4. AIW Radeon 8500 4xQ -

Like in AquaMark, only 1024x768 at 2x Performance AA will yield acceptable framerates. We didn't include the nv15demo since that demo is more of a CPU tester then anything else.
