Benchmarks: Quake III Arena, UT2003

Quake III Arena

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.

The older 655FX lost out to the i875P by the slimmest margins but it's nice to see that the SiS 655TX is faster.

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.

The i875P and the SiS 655TX based Gigabyte GA-8S655TX Ultra is neck and neck here in UT2003. The tweaked memory controller really improves performance just that little bit more.
