Unreal Tournament 2004
|Epic's "Unreal" games have been wildly popular ever since the original Unreal was released in the late '90s. Unreal, Unreal Tournament, and then Unreal Tournament 2003 rapidly became some of our favorites, for both benchmarking and killing a few hours when our schedules allowed it! Epic recently released the latest addition to the franchise, Unreal Tournament 2004. We used the demo version of the game to benchmark these cards at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1,600 x 1,200, without any anti-aliasing, with 4x AA, with 4X AA and 8X anisotropic filtering, and lastly with 4X AA and 16X aniso.|
UT2004 performance was strong for the ASUS V9999 at 1,024 x 768, returning the best results with both no AA and 4X AA testing. Again, we saw a severe decline with Anisotropic Filtering enabled, with both 6800s dropping below the 60 FPS threshold. When the resolution was increased to 1,600 x 1,200, the X800 managed to hold firm, putting on the best show over all. Nonetheless, the V9999 sported playable frame rates at 1,600 x1,200 without Anisotropic filtering in the mix.
