Benchmarks: UT2004

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.

While the graph might not be very friendly to UT2004, the numbers are still pretty good all things considered. Casual/mainstream gamers would be very happy with this setup.

Looks like UT2004 is a bit harder on the AMD/ECS PF88 Extreme combo. Still the framerates are quite high and should be good enough for hardcore gamers.
