Performance With 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, followed by 4X AA and 8X anisotropic filtering.|
The margins were a little tighter with the UT2004 1024x768 tests. With No AA/Aniso, the X800 pulled a 3 FPS lead over the X700 Pros, while the 4X AA/8X Aniso tests widened the gap just shy of 20 FPS. At 1600x1200, the X800 pulled ahead even further, holding an average of a 23 FPS lead in all facets of this test.
