Epox M762A and Gigabyte A-7DPXDW in the test: Dual-AMD motherboards in comparison

Aquamark

The Aquamark, also a DX8 benchmark from Massive Development, is based on the Krass engine, just like the game Aquanox , is thus something in between synthetic tests and a real world benchmark. A detailed underwater world is shown. It has been announced for a long time, but unfortunately still not available to everyone.

The same applies here as in the two previous graphics benchmarks the same picture. Even if the two new mainboards were able to sit in front of the boards from the last test, the difference is so small that it can easily be neglected.

Vulpine GLMark 1.1p

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

It also looks a little different in the last graphics benchmark. At least 5% lie between the fastest board, made by Gigabyte, and the Tyan board.
