In Aquamark3 the graphics card from Club3D performs not bad at all and gets close to RADEON 9800 PRO and GeForce FX 5900. Nevertheless, the first XGI Reactor driver version was optimized exactly for Aquamark3 test, besides others. The new version of the driver is free from any cheats: at least we didn’t see any performance changes after the aquamark.exe file had been renamed. For a more illustrative comparison the diagrams above also contain the results shown by Volari Duo with the old XGI Reactor driver and renamed aquamark.exe file.

Now let’s check the image quality in this test:

XGI
(new driver)

XGI
(old driver, renamed files, no cheats)

Reference

The problems with the texture level of detail and lighting are evident here. Unfortunately, XGI’s attempts to help its Volari run as fast as the competitors were either vain or required significant image quality losses.
