Benchmarks: AquaMark and Codecreatures

AquaMark 2.3 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. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 24.8
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 34.5

Thanks to the more advanced core, the Crucial Radeon 8500LE has a very healthy lead over the MX440 at 1024x768.

AquaMark 1280x1024
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 17
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 22.6

AquaMark 1600x1200
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 12.4
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 15.7

As the resolution is turned up, both videocards begin to max out. Still, the Crucial Radeon 8500LE maintains about a 20% performance advantage over the MX440.

CodeCreatures Source: CodeCult

CodeCretures requires a fully compatible DirectX 8 videocard with preferably 128 MB of RAM to store textures. Codecreatures utilizes vertex as well as pixel shaders to run their tests.

CodeCreatures 1024x768
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 N/A
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 11.7

CodeCreatures 1280x1024
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 N/A
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 9

CodeCreatures 1600x1200
Video Card FPS Ranking
1. Albatron GeForce4 MX440 N/A
2. Crucial Radeon 8500LE 6.8

Because the GeForce4 MX440 is not a DirectX 8 part, it can not run the CodeCreatures benchmark. While being slow, at least the Crucial Radeon 8500LE can run the program.
