Page 12 - 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.
The Unreal Tournament 2003 demo has been out for some time, available as 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 the 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 the more CPU and graphics intensive technologies that the engine is capable of.
|FX 5700 Ultra||99||81||60||46|
The GeForce FX series is very capable of handling this game as you can see, and it's a rough one on the graphics core alright. The 6800 Ultra is of course on top. Even with quality settings AF and AA enabled we still see the 5900 XT doing some awesome numbers.
|FX 5700 Ultra||68||50||36||25|
The videocard keeps a competitive edge and with some serious quality settings enabled you'll be able to play a very decent game in 1280x1024x32.
