Benchmarks: UT2003, Conclusion

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 gameplay 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 is not quite as bandwidth hungry as Q3 Arena but still it gets a healthy boost from overclocking as well.

Conclusions:

There's little doubt that Corsair makes some kick ass memory and the 512MB XMS3200 LL memory module is another fine example of Corsair engineering that really does speak for itself.

We had absolutely no problems running this memory at 200 MHz with the most aggressive memory timings enabled in the BIOS (at 2.5V). The stick we tested was overclocked to about 210 MHz FSB with a voltage of 2.77V, with good stability.

With a retail price of $240 CDN ($170 US) for the large 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL module, it is obvious there is a premium at work here. But when you consider the alternatives you can at least expect Corsair's memory will meet the advertised specs. Another aspect to consider as you examine which memory modules to buy for your home computer is Customer service. We've dealt a lot with other companies such as Crucial which very good customer service, and Corsair are no different. If you have a problem with your memory, Corsair are there to actually help you out... and I'm talking from first hand experiences so just consider that. Bottom line, good PC3200 DDR memory. The XMS3200LL runs at the advertised specs with very nice timings and overclocks nicely indeed. What more could you want?
