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 retail version of the game to benchmark these cards at resolutions of 1024x768 and 1280x1024, without any anti-aliasing, and with 4X AA and 8X anisotropic filtering.|
Our first gaming benchmark starts to give us an impression of how well the XFX GeForce 6600 DDR2 performs. Unreal Tournament 2004 is starting to show its age, as all the cards put up similar scores. When raising the resolution to 1280x1024, and applying 4x Anti-Aliasing and 8x Anisotropic Filtering, we start to see a noticeable performance gap. The XFX GeForce 6600 DDR2 hangs in at 2nd place, except when using our most stressful settings, where the ATI Radeon X700 Pro comes in slightly ahead.
