Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. 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 fairly obvious that UT2003 runs well on an AMD Athlon64 system. Performance is excellent!

UT2004 is new to us, but those framerates are quite high when compared to some Intel Pentium4 systems we've recently tested. The same trend is present here; overclocked systems are actually performing slightly slower than when at stock speeds.
