Aquamark3 is the latest instalment of the Aquamark benchmark suite. This new benchmark is much more powerful and demands much more from both the system and the graphics card. If there is any weakness in the system or 3D components, Aquamark3 will find them.
The V9980U pulls ahead once again strutting its stuff under the influence of Aquamark's default settings.
Halo PC is new to us at TweakTown. Though we have used it in a couple of benchmarks in the past, it has now found a permanent place in our Benchmark Suite. This is simply due to its support for the latest DirectX 9 API's to put some more stress on the system to determine the best of the best.
We redid this benchmark several times due to the oddity surrounding the results. But the V9980U takes a fall as we hike up the resolution in Halo PC. And, oddly enough, the V9980U bounces back into the lead at 1600x1200.
