|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.
see again that things start to go downhill quite quickly with higher AA
settings. The game is perfectly playable with AA and AF enabled
What a value videocard!
competes very well with ATi's, but up until now their mainstream and budget
solutions were quite, well... weak. While we would all love to use the best of
everything, not everyone can afford such luxuries. Considering that companies
make most of their money in the mainstream & budget markets, nVIDIA had
quite a problem on their hands. Based on the NV40 core, the GeForce 6600 GPU is very
capable and offers gamers on a budget an alternative that isn't lousy in
performance, or lacking in features.
retail price of just $161 CDN ($130 US), the Albatron GeForce
PC6600 is a steal, and great value for those who are looking for something that
doesn't break the bank. The card does not come with much software, only Arx
Fatalis, a five game demo CD and WinDVD, but with the money you save you can go
and buy yourself any games you'd like! More important than the software suite is
the fact that the Albatron GeForce PC6600 offers users both S-Video /

powers of PCs, these feature will become more significant.
quite a bit of luck overclocking the core, but the memory was pretty much a no
go. Despite the relatively low memory overclock, the performance boost to the
Albatron PC6600 was quite substantial, and in many cases will allow users to run
games well at one resolution setting higher!
The Albatron GeForce PC6600 is
not the fastest videocard we've ever tested, but all things considered it's
easily one of the best in value. It totally walks over Gigabyte GV-RX60X128V
which is based on the ATi X600XT GPU, as well as the nVIDIA based MSI
PCX5750-TD128! In fact the Albatron GeForce PC6600 is almost able to compete
against the Albatron Trinity 5900, which is officially a higher end card.
The PC6600 should be able
to handle pretty much any game on the market including Doom 3 at 1024x768, and
that ain't bad!
spent most of your money jumping on the PCI Express bandwagon and don't have
enough to get that awesome videocard just yet, make sure you check out the
Albatron GeForce PC6600. I'm sure it won't disappoint and it will definitely
give you your money's worth!
