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 Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 242.74
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 250.28
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 252.31
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 302.14
UT2003 - Botmatch:
640x480 FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 81.5
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 84.6
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 84.87
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 104.36

UT2003 is also a single threaded application but it benefits slightly from more memory bandwidth. Even at stock speeds there is a 10 fps difference between the PC2-4200 and PC2-8000 memory.

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 Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 87.79
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 91.66
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 92.45
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 106.447

2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 62.67
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 78.112
ctf-bridgeoffate FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 123.85
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 129.09
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 129.69
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 157.59

Like with UT2003, the Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL memory speed does affect UT2004 frame rates. Overclocking the system gets us some pretty nice frame rates!

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 Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 96.4
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 96.6
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (200/800) 96.7
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-8000UL (239/957) 110.4

I am rather surprised to see how close things are here in Doom 3 considering how it usually likes systems with a lot of bandwidth.
