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 9600XT falls behind by approximately 10 FPS in 1024x768 in this DX8 class benchmark...

...But things are a bit closer in a higher resolution; not much though.

The strong performance of the Radeon 9600XT is able to pull it to within 1 FPS of the 5700 Ultra. Once again the strong filtering engine allows the 9600XT to shine.

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...
