UT2004 and Wolfenstein ET

Wolfenstein: ET is a free, standalone multiplayer game that is based on the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein, that was released a few years back. It uses a heavily modified version of the Quake 3 engine which makes it a very easy to use benchmarking tool.  We ran the test using the "Fastest" setting at a low resolution of 640X480, using 16-bit color and textures.  Running this test with a high-end graphics card, at these minimal settings, isolates processor and memory performance, with very little emphasis placed on the graphics subsystem.

As we suspected, the two Prescott core P4 560 systems fell behind the P4 3.46GHz Extreme Edition setup with its 2MB of L2 cache. The P4 EE has a 5% advantage over the fastest P4 560 score and the i925XE based P4 560 test system has a small 3% advantage over the Shuttle SB77G5.  However, once again for a SFF PC, these scores are more than respectable.

Epic's Unreal Tournament 2004 give us a slightly different picture on performance oddly enough, versus our Wolf ET test.  While the OpenGL based Wolfenstein engine is affected more so by system memory bandwidth, UT2004 seems to be a bit more CPU intensive and the Shuttle SB77G5 put up a strong showing here, just edging out the i925XE reference system with an identical processor installed.
