A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8
encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that
have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them) and many new engine,
shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows!
Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.
Again, the PDC1G3200+XBLK memory maintains a high level
of performance, consistent with the other high-end memory products in the test.
Looks like this PDP Patriot memory will be good for gaming.
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
Very little to choose between the various memory modules
in this test, though the PDP PDC1G3200+XBLK sticks do very well. Our Intel test
system benefits a lot from the extra bandwidth provided by overclocking.
