Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Quake III Arena

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

1. Pentium 4 3.0C/Asus i875P (200/400) N/A
2. Pentium 4 3.0C/Epox i875P (200/400) N/A
3. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (200/400) N/A

6. Pentium 4 3.0C/Gigabyte i875P (225/360) 10607
AquaMark 3 Benchmark Results
Overall 3DMarks Ranking
1. Pentium 4 3.0C/Asus i875P (200/400) N/A
2. Pentium 4 3.0C/Epox i875P (200/400) N/A
3. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (200/400) N/A
4. Pentium 4 3.0C/Abit i865PE (200/400) N/A
5. Pentium 4 3.0C/Gigabyte i875P (200/400) 39242
6. Pentium 4 3.0C/Gigabyte i875P (225/360) 39339

With AquaMark3 based on the AquaNox2 game engine the benchmark represents real world game situations. We see that when the system is overclocked it gets a small boost but doesn't really affect overall score much. Unfortunately we did not have an opportunity to run AquaMark3 on all the competing test systems.

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.
