Aquamark3 Transition Done - New Wrapper Fully Integrated, Old One Discontinued

As mentioned in a news post last week, today we discontinued the old benchmark wrapper of Aquamark3 and updated it with a faster and more compatible version. GENiEBEN, a Romanian overclocker and developer, made use of the new HWBOT Benchmark API to fully integrated the wrapper into our new Rev5 engine. The new version can be downloaded here and can be used to submit benchmark results right now!.

As said before, the old wrapper is no longer supported and scores with it can no longer be submitted to HWBOT. The datafile structure is completely different, so we cannot even manually add it anymore. In other words, the new wrapper is the way to go and we wish you all have boatloads of fun with it. Enjoy!

Just tried the new one, it rocks! I have no additions, only that my hardware is not detected (Asus N56VZ with I7-3610QM and Geforce 650M). Typing in the exact search manually does find the hardware. Also there is no option to select the same config as previous submissions (for clock speeds, cooling used, etc).

Belgium Devroush says:

Yep the matching will need some data first before it starts to work well, because the hardware text strings that are recognized are a bit different. For popular hardware, it shouldn't take long for the matching to work as it should.

Disappointed !!! Bad AQUA !!! Let's see this picture :

Same system at the same time , New version would get so higher score which is bad !!! With full respect to the score of Expat GriZ (which was awesome), I don't believe that any 8800 GTS 640Mb could reach 497K : http://www.hwbot.org/submission/2352451_expat_griz_aquamark_geforce_8800_gts_640_mb_497421_marks

Fast reaction and decision making would be nice before all last submits with last version destroy !!!

GENiEBEN says:

Run Aqua without any wrapper and with Core affinity / High Priority and see your score :)

Iran Amateurs says:

Thanks GENIEBEN, Just tell me that the gap between these two score (Second place has stronger hardware) is OK or not ?

If we look this scores: http://www.hwbot.org/submission/2350039_der8auer_aquamark_geforce_gtx_285_481550_marks http://www.hwbot.org/submission/2352343_radi_aquamark_geforce_gtx_285_476744_marks We won't see such difference I think expat_griz bug score

The score is being discussed internally.

AM3 rule page needs an update ASAP! http://hwbot.org/news/882_application_10_rules/

I have a problem, I cannot save result, the folder is empty.

What version, what Card, what OS.

Slovenia tiborrr says:

2.22 5900XT AGP, 169.21 WinXP SP3 Pentium Dual Core (Wolfdale-2M) 6500K ASRock PT880 Ultra board. I have 83k in AM3 @ 730/510 on dry ice but cannot save it. I only have screenshot :(

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

2.23 fixes this issue (assuming a space is an "illegal" character).

Slovenia tiborrr says:

where can i get 2.23? i cannot download it through hwbot, error 404. P.S.: 2.22 doesn't give any error, taskbar popup window says the file has been saved to my desktop.

Slovenia tiborrr says:

OK, i found what's wrong - the url is wrong in the Benchmarks database - the correct download link for 2.23 is: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hwbotdownloads/downloads/benchmarks/HWBOT_aquamark_v.2.23.exe

GENiEBEN says:

You can also click on 'website' for alternative link.

I will look into it later, probably add a DEBUG hotkey too.
Meanwhile see if you have this problem with other videocard or OS.

EDIT: continue posting here http://hwbot.org/forum/showthread.php?t=67401

Iran Amateurs says:

Hello again with full respect to the GENIEBEN and I appreciate your hard work on this AquaMark.
I'm not insisting on anything but still think that this version get higher score.
With full respect to GREAT GREAT GREAT score of sofos (who is the master of extreme OC now), but I want to know your opinion about these two submits:
http://www.hwbot.org/submission/2334759_sofos1990_aquamark_3x_radeon_hd_5870_508049_marks
http://www.hwbot.org/submission/2354498_sofos1990_aquamark_3x_radeon_hd_5870_515086_marks
7K more with near 214MHz lower CPU frequency and 50MHz lower core clock. Same config, just OS and mobo changed. We are talking about Sofos and he will tweak anyway, It is not Priority or Core affinity !!!

Netherlands wesjuhdabomb says:

Since the application is a wrapper that launches aquamark and after that just captures the aquamark generated scores, there should be no further enhancements. It is ofcourse possible that the old wrapper was using more system resources and therefore generating lower scores (which was also the biggest disadvantage of the old one).

EDIT: For those unaware, old wrapper was built using Windows Presentation Foundation which uses DirectX to draw on the screen the window instead of the classic GDI (2D) method.

Been using the new AM3 this weekend. Realy very easy to use and automatically launches CPU-Z and GPU-Z, I must say congratz to the developers!

United States xxbassplayerxx says:

Any chance at getting this updated on the rules page? http://hwbot.org/news/882_application_10_rules/

Will do when I get back on the 19/20th
