Aquamark 2.3

Not to be left out in the cold, Aquamark 2.3 is still viable as a DirectX 8 benchmark.

This time the 5700 Ultra performs significantly better in 1024x768 in this DX8 class benchmark...

...And it pulls ahead even further when the resolution is increased!

The strong performance of the Radeon 9600XT is able to pull it to within 1 FPS of the 5700 Ultra. This is more a sign of strength for the ATI card as opposed to weak performance on the 5700 Ultra.

I think that should do it for the synthetic benchmarks - let's get to some real world game testing! Starting off with a Q3 engine based game of course...
