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.

Finally we are starting to see some real benefits from overclocking! If you are a gamer, running a high memory frequency does improve performance!

Unreal Tournament 2004

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, like UT2003 gets a decent performance boost due to overclocking. Office/workstation style applications might not get much from increased memory speeds but games certainly do.

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 OCZ PC3500 Gold GX DC (200/400) 125.2
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 126.4
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 125.7
2x 512MB Patriot PDC1G5600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 127.5
2x 512MB Patriot PDC1G5600ELK PC5600 (337/674) 132.8

In our last benchmark Doom 3, we see a small increase in performance due to overclocking. That little bit might be enough to push the resolution one level higher. ;-)
