|Unreal Tournament 2003
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.
like we'll have to get another game to test out AA with seeing as the Albatron
6800GT videocard gets about the same framerates at each setting. Simply amazing
numbers... man I would love to have this card in my system!
Lighting fast! The Albatron
For some reason brand loyalty
is especially strong in the videocard market. Because of this many ATi loyalists
have counted nVidia out for the game lately. With results like those we've just
shown you, nVidia is certainly addressing their problems and producing some very
This of course is good news for you and I, since healthy
competition should in theory keep prices down. It's also nice to see that nVidia
have worked around the issues that plagued its GeForceFX line; namely noise from
the videocard and comparatively poorer image quality.
While the GeForceFX 5800 Ultra was dubbed the 'vacuum
cleaner' for its noisy heatsink, the Albatron 6800GT is nearly silent under
power. Pretty amazing when you consider it's single-slot heatsink is cooling 222
million (GPU) transistors!
Overall I'd still give ATi the edge when it comes to
image quality, but nVIDIA has certainly improved their products by a large
margin, and IQ on a GeForce 6800 platform is very nice indeed. Ultimately
though, the Albatron 6800GT is great 8X AGP videocard. Sure it retails for $550 CDN ($430 US), but it is easily one
of the fastest on the block. Compared to some other 6800GT's on the market, you
might even save enough to buy yourself a copy of Doom 3. So, for those of you
looking for a lightning fast AGP videocard in the nVidia colours, the Albatron
6800GT is fine example of what makes this such an exciting time!
