Asus A7M266-D, MSI K7D Master-L and Tyan Tiger MPX in the test: First look at AMD's dual mainboards

Aquamark

The Aquamark, also a DX8 benchmark from Massive Development, is based, like the game Aquanox, on the Krass engine, so it is a cross between synthetic tests and a realworld benchmark. A detailed underwater world is shown. It has been announced for a long time, but unfortunately still not available to everyone. By the way, Aquamark is also the reason why we chose the Detonator 23.11 as the graphics card driver. With the current drivers for the nVidia graphics cards, a smooth process could not be achieved. A rhythmic stalling of the process prevented any reasonable result.

Also the same picture here as in the two previous graphic benchmarks. Only the Tyan makes a slight, albeit insignificant, blunder with the maximum number of images per second and is at the end of the test field with 4.1 images less per second.

Vulpine GLMark 1.1p

The Vulpine GLMark from the German software manufacturer Vulpine is not optimized for DX8 this time like the 3DMark2000 and 3DMark2001. It is a pure OpenGL benchmark.

The situation in the last graphics benchmark is not significantly different either. No notable differences between the mainboards.
