Benchmarks: Code creatures, AquaMark3

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.

Our second DirectX9 benchmark, codecreatures uses a custom engine to render a variety of complex nature scenes using DirectX 9 effects. It's an excellent way to completely stress out your videocard of choice.

The GV-N595U delivers a pretty consistent advantage over the Radeon 9800 Pro at all resolutions, but does not manage much of an edge over its Nvidia sibling, the FX5900 card in our test.

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.

Continuing with the DirectX9 benchmarks, Aquamark3 can stress any video card out there right now with its complex effects. In the default benchmark, the Gigabyte FX5950 Ultra came out ahead of the Radeon 9800 Pro by a small margin. Overclocking gave considerable performance improvement in this benchmark, which was a positive thing.
