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.
