The DirectX 8 3D engine from Aquanox uses pixel and vertex shaders. Nevertheless, the MX460 is able to remain at the Ti200 performance level, thanks to its fast GPU and memory clocks. The Ti500 is able to keep just a bit ahead of the RADEON 8500 in this discipline. Meanwhile, the GeForce4 Ti series demonstrate the power of their double vertex shaders in Aquanox. The 4600 runs twice as fast as the R8500 and Ti500.
