Tired of those boring old Quake 3 benchmarks? Here's one based on AquaNox 2's engine... JoWooD Productions AG today announced that a subsidiary of the publisher, Massive Development, will publish a successor to its 3D benchmark program AquaMark 2.3 during this financial quarter. AquaMark 3 will be a fully DirectX 9-capable cutting-edge benchmark based on Massive Development's krass engine which also powers AquaNox 2: Revelation.

The AquaMark 3 benchmark allows users to observe the new graphical techniques made possible by DirectX 9 and determine the performance of these features in a real world application.

Commenting on this development, Alexander Jorias, Managing Director of Massive Development said: "AquaMark 3 has reached a development stage and includes features which facilitate worldwide professional benchmark tests with DirectX 9. In addition, we believe it is now user-friendly enough to be implemented by end users as well."

Aquamark 3 will be available for public download in March.
