Advanced Benchmarks: UT2003, Conclusions

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.

It should be no surprise to anyone that the botmatch framerates stay about the same. With the flyby we see that AA affects framerates quite a bit, if you use anything above 4x AA you really do not have playable framerates. 4x AA with 8x AF makes the picture look silky smooth!

Inexpensive, purple, and Fast!

Looking back, I think a lot of consumers were quite surprised by the release of the GeForceFX 5900XT GPU - it seemed like a desperate move by nVIDIA to try and recapture the mainstream market from ATI. Fortunately for nvidia, and consumers, it worked and worked extremely well! Don't take my word for it though, check out some other computer hardware publications and you'll no doubt see the same thing; GeForceFX 5900XT based videocards rock!

In the computer industry, AOpen manufacturers pretty much everything from motherboards to soundcards, cases, optical drives and even videocards. Despite that diversity, AOpen's level of quality and service is still near the top of their class!

The GeForceFX 5900XT GPU (and memory) typically runs with a stock speed of 390/700MHz, but the AOpen card is overclocked by default at 420/700MHz. As you can guess, the higher core speed definitely translates into higher real world framerates!

Any card based around the GeForceFX 5900XT will be fast, and the AOpen GeForceFX 5900XT is no different. Performance at stock speeds was very good, and when the card was overclocked to 466/845, things were simply that much sweeter. In fact, the card was as fast or faster than an ATi Radeon 9800 Pro or GeForceFX 5950 Ultra videocard!

Those of you who are looking for a huge software bundle will probably be a bit disappointed as the Aopen GeForceFX 5900XT comes only with PowerDVD 5 and a driver CD. However, the $239 CDN ($175 US) retail price is among the lowest we've ever seen, and is certainly much more compelling than a copy of Serious Sam. With the money you save, you can go buy yourself a copy of FarCry or UT2004! ;-)

Remember, just because you're looking for a mainstream videocard doesn't mean you cannot get top of the line performance, the AOpen's GeForceFX 5900XT certainly proves that!
