Overclocked Unreal Tournament 2004 Performance

Overclocking really doesn't do anything for the old DX8.1 game that we have laying around the lab.

We turn on 4xAA and 8xAF and let it stretch its legs a bit. This performance leap just goes to show how memory limited developers really are when they render beautiful graphics without the flexibility of current technology (at least on the software side).

    Yes, I too would like to see an update here...have any of the makers attacked the HSF mounting problems? Reply

    can we please get an update on this article with more cards, and replacements of defective cards?

    I'm interested in the gigabyte card

    Those temperature results are pretty dodge. Surely no regular computer user would have a caseless computer. Those results are only favourable and only shed light on how cool the card CAN be, and not how hot they actually are in a regular scenario. The results would've been much more useful had the temperature been measured inside a case. Reply

    i like the albatron best. Exactly how loud is it? like how many decibels? Reply

    Anyone have any information on the Galaxy part? I don't find it in a pricewatch or pricegrabber search at all. Reply

    Hey there. I noticed that Gigabyte seems to have modified their HSI cooling solution. Has anyone had any experience with this? It looks much better.

    Derek, do you read your email at all? I got Prolink 6600 GT card and I would like to hear a suggestion on improving the cooling solution. I can confirm that retail card reaches 95 C at full load and idles at 48 C. That is really bad image for nVidia. They should be informed about vendor's doing poor job on cooling design. I mean, you would expect it to be way better because those cards ain't cheap.

    Derek. Could you speculate on what thermal compound is used to interface between the HSF and the GPU on the XFX card? I e-mailed them, and they won't tell me what it is?! It would be great if it was paste or tape. I need to be able to remove it, and then later, would like to re-install it. I might be able to overlook not having the component video pod on the XFX card, as long as I get an HDTV that supports DVI. Reply

    I thought I would add about the DUAL-DVI issue, in the new NVIDIA drivers, they show that the second DVI can be used for HDTV output. It appears that even the overscan adjustments are there.

    So not having the component "pod" on the XFX card appears to be less of a concern than I thought it might be. It would be nice to hear if someone tried running 1600x1200 + 1600x1200 on the XFX, just to know if the DVI is up to snuff for dual LCD use.
