Benchmarks: Quake III Arena, UT2003

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards..

3. AK79D-400 Max - 166/333 107
4. AK79D-400 Max - 223/446 119.2

The Epox 8RGA+ and AK79D-400 Max perform approximately the same at stock speeds. Overclocking alllows us to break the 400 fps barrier easily in Demo001.

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.
