Unreal Tournament 2004

Head-to-Head Performance With Unreal Tournament 2004
Epic's Latest Smash Hit!
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 permitted it. Epic recently released the latest addition to the franchise, Unreal Tournament 2004. We used a patched (v3355) full 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, and with 4X AA and 8X aniso concurrently enabled. 



In Unreal Tournament 2004, we finally have the 6600GT being competetive with the other two cards.  All three cards placed in the mid to high 90's at 1024x768, with expected dropoffs when turning on the driver optimizations.  Moving on to 1600x1200 results, we originally have the NX6800GT leading the pack by a large margin.  Enabling 4xAA with 8x Aniso made quick work of the GeForce based cards, where the frame rates dropped nearly in half.  The Radeon card was much less affected, dropping only about a quarter of its performance.
