Benchmarks: UT2003, UT2004, Doom 3

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.

UT2003 - Flyby:
640x480 FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 358.08
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 358.59
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 376.81
UT2003 - Botmatch:
640x480 FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 112.98
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 113.01
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 118.87

Things are quite close here in UT2003 as well, but overclocking does give the flyby tests a decent boost.

Unreal Tournament 2004

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2004 is the sequel to the highly popular UT2003 and uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology. Unreal Tournament 2004 employs the use of Vertex and Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 9 videocard if you plan to play competitively.

UT2004
dm-rankin FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 130.6
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 130.5
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 131.25
as-convoy FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 87.63
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 87.78
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 90.26
ctf-bridgeoffate FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 181.43
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 181.67
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 187.24

UT2004 doesn't seem to get much boost due to the higher memory frequency. Odd. The Centon modules are still performing on par with the Corsair kit.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date. it takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 116.5
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 116.5
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 124.8

Doom 3, our last benchmark gets a very healthy boost due to overclocking! Also healthy is the Centon GEMiNi kit's general performance in our benchmarks.
