AquaMark3, dripping to your pc on September 15, 2003!

Posted on Thursday, September 04 2003 @ 12:30:07 CEST by

The launch date of Aquamark 3 is finally given ; the 15th of September. The benchmark will have a size of 58MB.

AquaMark3 is the first commercial benchmark offering both: a real world DirectX 9 game engine and free access to an online database, the AquaMark Result Comparator ARC. It is based on Massive Development’s multi platform krass™ Engine, a real life game engine used by AquaMark2.3 and games like subwater action shooter AquaNox, AquaNox2: Revelation and the upcoming strategy hit Spellforce.

The basic application will be available as a free download on a large number of mirror sites around the world. This version supports the AquaMark TRISCORE™ benchmark test and free online access to the ARC.

The AquaMark online shop will offer a range of extended versions for private as well as for commercial use. All of these licenses contain the capability to check the customer’s system extensively. They also comprise a wide range of unique features like pixel rate tests and pixel shader complexity tests. Prices start at $9.95 (€ 9.95 for EURO countries) for the fully featured Professional Version.

What's the difference between this and the 3dMark benchmark software that Futuremark puts out?

    One of the differences is that this benchmark is based on a real life gaming engine called the Krass engine. For example Aquanox and Aquanox 2 are made with this engine. The 3DMark benchmarks are more synthetically than this one.
