Benchmarks: 3DMark05, AquaMark3

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX®9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher.

3DMark05 is SLI compatible and here we see that both the Intel and AMD nForce4 SLi boards show similar performance gains when SLI is enabled. The Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal turns in the best score among the Intel boards once again. The NF4 AMD system is quite capable by comparison.

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

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

Things are closer here in AquaMark3 but the Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal motherboard still performs very well when compared to its Intel competition. Our AMD SLI system saw slightly more benefit out of running dual cards than our Intel board did.
