Benchmarks: Quake III, UT2003

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

As we can see with Quake III Arena, the Metis 266 is not a 3D powerhouse, but the FPS QIII achieved are pretty respectable considering the videocard, and they are of course entirely playable.

Unreal Tournament 2003 Demo

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

UT2003 confirms what Quake III Arena says, the Metis 266 is better suited for office type work, though if you do want to take some time for gaming it will allow you to do that. Good for very casual gamers, not really suited for everyday gammers.
