DirectX with UT2003
One of the newest DirectX
test to join the ranks of the benchmarking elite is
Unreal Tournement 2003. We set up the Antalus Fly-by
Demo to show how the Ti4800SE held up with one of the
newest DirectX titles available.
At 1024x768, the Albatron
Ti4800SE was outpaced by about 13 FPS when compared to the
older, more powerful Ti4600. The performance delta
increased slightly at 1280x960, with the Ti4600 pulling
ahead by about 14 FPS. The benefit of the Ti4600's
higher core and memory clock speeds are clearly
demonstrated with a taxing benchmark like UT2003.
OpenGL Benchmarks with Quake 3
The OpenGL Granddaddy of Them All!
As far as OpenGL
benchmarks go, there has never been a program more popular
than Quake3. Surely as the years have passed, the
game has begun to report triple digit scores at even the
highest of resolutions, leaving the results a bit
ambiguous to some. Anyone who
frequently reads video card reviews knows a good score when they
see one, and that is why Quake 3 is still around.
With that said, let's take a look and see how the Albatron
card performed at both stock and overclocked speeds versus
As with the other benchmarks
we've seen up to this point, the scores are clearly CPU
limited at 1024x768. Even while overclocked, the
Ti4800SE only added 10FPS to its score, nudging past the
eVGA Ti4600 by 3FPS. Once the resolution was
increase to 1600x1200, the gap widened. At the
default clock speeds, the Ti4800SE was outpaced by 25FPS.
When we overlcocked the card however, the Albatron
Ti4800SE ended up
beating the older model by 17FPS.
Next we'll stress these cards
a little further with a few levels of Anti-aliasing...
