Benchmarks: UT2003

Unreal Tournament 2003

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 640x480 Flyby

P4 2.66 GHz (133/333)

P4 2.66 GHz (133/333)

66.53
2. P4 3.46 GHz (173/434) 85.81

Perhaps Quake III is still a good test as UT2003 shows the same performance differences at 640x480.

UT2003 1024x768 Flyby

2. P4 3.46 GHz (173/434) 88.91

With the Radeon 9700 Pro starting to max out, the stock system is starting to creep up on the overclocked one. The overclocked system still is able to maintain a 20% performance difference in UT2003's botmatch tests because they're mainly CPU limited.

UT2003 1600x1200 Flyby
Video Card FPS Ranking

P4 2.66 GHz (133/333)

P4 2.66 GHz (133/333)

64.72
2. P4 3.46 GHz (173/434) 78

Like we saw with QIII at 1600x1200, the flyby demo become videocard limited. Overclocked, the system still performs quite well in the botmatch demo's though.
