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.

8. MSI FX5600-VTDR128 (366/631) 64.7

Because the memory is clocked lower on the MSI FX5600-VTDR128, it performs just a tad slower than the Albatron GeForceFX 5600P Turbo. Overall it's quite slow though even at 1024x768.

As the resolution goes up, all the budget videocards start to lag quite badly.
