|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.
