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.

We see a decent boost in framerate here in UT2003. It is nice to see that real world applications get a boost due to overclocking.

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 gets a smaller performance boost due to overclocking, but it all counts at the end!

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 Patriot PEP5125600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 127.5
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 126.4
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 125.7
2x 512MB OCZ PC3500 Gold GX DC (200/400) 125.2
2x 512MB OCZ PC3500 Gold GX DC (250/500) 130.8

In our last benchmark we see nice 5 fps boost in framerate due to overclocking! That can make the difference between a jerky system and one that is smooth. But realistically, the differences here are pretty moot as we are not overlocking the CPU as well - since we're interested in what the memory itself adds to te equation.
