Benchmarks: UT2003

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 gameplay 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.

The AMD system does not get as large an increase in UT2003 as it did in Quake III Arena. The P4 system continues to get huge boosts everywhere thanks to the added bandwidth and higher CPU speed.

So what does all this mean?

With the release the Buffalo DDR533 memory modules it's clear that Buffalo is taking direct aim at the big boys in the memory market. It helps that they also have some super fast memory, and while we couldn't quite hit 533 MHz, we got pretty darn close.

The Intel overclocking game has changed and if one wants to keep up with the latest technology they must adapt. Remember this even if you're not an Intel enthusiast, all the high speed memory modules are being built for Intel based systems!

Intel's 800 MHz P4 chips require a lot of bandwidth first and foremost. Latency comes in at a distant second, and that's why most of the really high speed DIMM's have very lax timings. Because of these lax timings, these memory modules will not perform as well on AMD based systems where latency is a much more critical factor...
