Powercolor ATi Radeon 9800 XT Video Card ReviewFormer staff writer -
Benchmark: Aquamark 3Aquamark 3 is an great tool for comparisons since it uses a real game engine and utilizes DirectX 9, and has many advance techniques that can really take a toll on your video card. We only ran Aquamark3 in 1024x768 with 4x AF and no AA because it is the only available test you can run without purchasing Aquamark 3. We also think this makes the test that we conducted more useful for comparisons in the community.
Unlike 3DMark03 that clearly showed the difference between the two cards, Aquamark 3 only shows a fractional amount of difference between the two.
