Unreal Tournament 3

If you're a long-time PC gamer, the Unreal Tournament franchise should need no introduction.  UT's fast paced action and over the top weapons have been popular for as long as Epic has been making the games.  For these tests, we used the latest addition to the franchise, Unreal Tournament 3.  The game doesn't have a built-in benchmarking tool, however, so we enlisted the help of FRAPS here.  These tests were run at resolutions of 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 with no anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled.  All graphical options set to High Quality with color correction enabled.



This test was the most balanced we've run thus far.  All three cards posted close results, with the EN8800GTX posting the best results at 1280x1024 and the ATI Radeon 4850 posting top scores at 1600x1200.  Both the EN9800GT and ATI Radeon 4850 were tied at 1280x1024 while the Radeon held an 11 FPS advantage at 1600x1200 in this test.

FarCry 2

FarCry 2

Like the original, FarCry 2 is one of the more visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Courtesy of the Dunia game engine developed by Ubisoft, FarCry 2's game-play is enhanced by advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, high resolution textures, complex shaders, realistic dynamic lighting, and motion-captured animations.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article with a fully patched version of FarCry 2, using one of the built-in demo runs recorded in the "Ranch" map.  The test results shown here were run at various resolutions with 4X AA and No anisotropic enabled concurrently.

 

With FarCry 2, the Radeon 4850 and the GeForce 8800GTX were the most closely matched in performance, with the Radeon 4850 holding a slight advantage.  The EN9800GT trailed the other models by a little over 5 FPS at 1280x1024 while the margin widened at 1600x1200 by closer to 8 FPS.
