Benchmarks: 3DMark05, UT2003, UT2004

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX®9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher.

3DMark05's overall score does not change. We see a decent boost in the CPU portion of the test.

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.

2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC4000 (273/546) 115.62

There is a decent boost due to overclocking the memory here, although I'm not sure if you would notice it with the framerates so high.

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 does not get as big a performance boost as UT2003 does, but the numbers are still pretty good overall.
