Benchmarking utility based on the AquaNox engine | Posted by jonchappell on Aug 16th 05 04:41 PM


AquaMark3 allows PC users to easily measure and compare the performance of their current and next-generation PC systems. It provides a reliable benchmark which helps users to configure their systems for the best gaming performance.

The AquaMark3 executes a complete state-of-the-art game engine and generates 3D scenes designed to make the same demands on hardware as a modern game. The utilized game engine, the krass™ Engine, has been used in Aquanox and AquaNox 2: Revelation as well as in the upcoming RTS Spellforce by Phenomic Game Development. It is accepted industrywide and well-known to deliver high-performance graphic effects with superior quality.

Technically, AquaMark3 utilizes recent hardware features of the new DirectX 9 API, such as PixelShader 2.0, while staying fully backward compatible to DirectX 8 and 7 graphics hardware. The graphics and game engine features activated can be configured in fine detail to allow the performance measurement to be adjusted appropriately for the target system.

To make the benchmark as easy to use as possible, AquaMark3 offers a great variety of standardized and used defineable evaluation schemes. Intuitive visual output formats help to easily compare results to each other.

Unlike synthetic benchmarks, AquaMark allows benchmarking in a real-world scenario, with an engine and art assets showing the complexity of current state-of-the-art games.
