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! Epic recently released the latest addition to the franchise, Unreal Tournament 2004. We used a fully patched (v3270) full version of the game to benchmark these cards at resolutions of 1024x768 and 1600x1200, without any anti-aliasing, and lastly with 4X AA and 8 aniso enabled.|
If Unreal Tournament 2004 is your game, you'd be quite happy with fast laptop powered by a Mobility Radeon 9800. Using our custom demo, which was recorded during an actual on-line game, the Mobility Radeon 9800 finished she a shade behind the Radeon 9800 Pro at both resolutions, in both test configurations. Without any anti-aliasing at 1024x768, both GPUs were basically GPU bound, finishing the test in a dead-heat. With AA turned on though, the Radeon 9800 Pro pulled about 10% ahead of the MR9800. At 1600x1200, in both test configurations, the Mobility Radeon 9800 trailed the Radeon 9800 Pro by about 10%.
