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.

Unreal Tournament 2003 is much more modern than Quake III. It is also different in that it utilizes DirectX rather than OpenGL, as Quake does. The results are not altogether much different, though, as NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5950 dominates the 'Flyby' portion of the demo while the RADEON 9800 XT attains a small advantage in the 'Botmatch' section. Unfortunately, both ATI and NVIDIA have made verifiable optimizations to the way Unreal Tournament 2003 filters, significantly detracting from the test's credibility.
