Advanced Benchmarks: UT2003, Conclusions

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.

Only 8x AA degrades performance significantly, everything else provides perfectly playable framerates!

The Asus V9999GE

I feel old for saying this... but upgrading a PC when I was a kid was a lot easier. Back then, if you wanted faster gaming performance you simply added more memory, or upgraded to a faster processor.

These days upgrading a PC is much different, and the Asus V9999 Gamers Edition videocard PCstats tested in this review is certainly not cheap, but it is damn fast!

With a retail price of $546 CDN ($417 US), the Asus V9999GE is a major upgrade, and on the plus side it does come with a free USB web cam for Asus Game Face, and three nice bundled games. Because the card supports S-Video output, Asus also includes a nice long S-Video to Composite cable and DVI to analog converter. Whether you use Asus's GameFace software or not, it's nice to find a webcam that can be used by itself.

Performance of the Asus V9999GE videocard was excellent for the most part, but that is to be expected considering it's using a GeForce 6800 GPU. ;-) In almost all benchmarks, the V9999GE fought it out for top spot with the Asus AX800XT/TVD and Albatron GeForce 6800GT. Both are both officially higher end cards. So if you're looking for a high end video card for your system, the Asus V9999GE certainly has a lot to offer, and it is damn fast! Recommended.
