HIS Excalibur X800 Pro - VIVO Edition with IceQ II
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 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.|
With Unreal 2004, the X800 Pro from HIS put up a strong showing, especially with 1600 x 1200 tests. At this resolution, the X800 posted over a 23 FPS lead with the No AA test, although the margin dropped to 13 FPS with 4X AA enabled. But as the Anisotropic Filtering was introduced, the GeForce 6800 took the biggest hit, dropping to 50% less than the X800 Pro.
