Benchmarks: QIII Arena, 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.

4. AU13 - 173/346 112.2

Unlike what we saw in the Futuremark based benchmarks, Quake III Arena seems to think the 8RDA+ and the AU13 are very similar.

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.

It seems the AU13 does not do quite as well as the 8RDA+ in UT2003. It still performs a little better than the Albatron KT400-based board though.
