ATi Mobility Radeon 9700
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 for 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 1024x768 and 1600x1200, without any anti-aliasing, with 4x AA, with 4X AA and 8X anisotropic filtering and lastly with 4X AA and 16X aniso.|
The Mobility Radeon 9700 performed well when using our custom Unreal Tournament 2004 timedemo, but the desktop systems still managed to finish well ahead of ATi's flagship mobile GPU. The Radeon 9600 XT was about 10-15% faster than the Mobility Radeon 9700 across the board and the much more powerful 256MB Radeon 9800 Pro was in a league of its own.
