Benchmarks: AquaMark 2.3

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.

Here at 1024x768 we see the MSI performs quite well relatively for a budget card. One thing to remember though, all the other DirectX 8 cards are running with Pixel Shaders enabled, while the GF4 MX's aren't.

As the resolution goes higher, the MX's start to loose steam. Overclocking does bring a healthy performance boost though.
