Page 19 - Unreal 2003

Unreal 2003The Unreal Tournament 2003 benchmark is much more modern than Quake III, this is not the Unreal 2003 performance test as used by some other websites; contrary to that, it's based on the demo. imageview.php?image=100

Since the Unreal Tournament 2003 demo is finally out, and available for a free download. You can get it at just about any file download site (link). Be prepared to download 100MB of data though. 

One nice little addition to UT2003 demo is that it has a built-in benchmark utility.  You can find the benchmark in the system subdirectory for the game after it installs.  The file is appropriately named 'benchmark.exe'.  Run this file, select the resolution you want to benchmark, and it will go through 4 different demos, 2 are "flyby" and 2 are "botmatch" demos.  The flyby demos give you an idea of how high frame rates would be without bots, while the botmatch demos give you an idea of what kind of fps you can expect while actually playing the game. The benchmark actually leverages more cpu and graphics intensive technologies that the engine is capable of. First results, FlyBy:

FX 5600 73 56 41 33
9600 Pro 89 76 57 43
FX 5700 Ultra 99 81 60 46
9700 Pro 96 91 78 63
5900 100 95 79 63
9800 Pro 102 98 86 70
FX 5900 Ultra 101 97 87 72
FX 5950 Ultra 101 97 88 74

The 5700 Ultra is very capable of handling this game as you can see, and it's a rough one on the graphics core alright. The 5950 Ultra is again, on top. Even with quality settings AF and AA enabled we still see awesome numbers.

NV38 525/1.02 84 71 53 42

The 5700 Ultra keeps the competitive edge over the 9600 series and again is getting close to the 9700 Pro. The 5950, as expected, top notch performance, make no mistake the 9800 Pro is close.
