Sapphire Radeon X800 XT Graphics Card Review

AquaMark 3


AquaMark 3 is the latest installment 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, AquaMark 3 will find them.



Have you run the AquaMark 3 tests yourself yet? If not, you're missing a treat. Not only does this test offer a decent level of stress to the system and graphics systems, it also gives you some pretty cool eye candy to enjoy while it is running the tests.


Since this particular test suite utilizes both the system and the graphics board to compute test results, we're going to run into that little problem of CPU limitations again. It won't be quite as pronounced as some other tests, though, since there is more to the AquaMark test itself to help stress out the board. Even so, we're still seeing a 23% increase in overall scores and a more impressive 35% increase in the GPU score itself.
