Gaming Performance - Unreal Tournament 2003 (Flyby)

With this review we continue to use the final retail version of Unreal Tournament 2003 as a benchmark tool. The benchmark works similarly to the demo, except there are higher detail settings that can be chosen. As we've mentioned before, in order to make sure that all numbers are comparable you need to be sure to do the following:

By default the game will detect your video card and assign its internal defaults based on the capabilities of your video card to optimize the game for performance. In order to fairly compare different video cards you have to tell the engine to always use the same set of defaults which is accomplished by editing the .bat files in the X:\UT2003\Benchmark\ directory.

Add the following parameters to the statements in every one of the .bat files located in that directory:

-ini=..\\Benchmark\\Stuff\\MaxDetail.ini -userini=..\\Benchmark\\Stuff\\MaxDetailUser.ini

For example, in botmatch-antalus.bat will look like this after the additions:

..\System\ut2003 dm-antalus?spectatoronly=true?numbots=12?quickstart=true -benchmark -seconds=77 -exec=..\Benchmark\Stuff\botmatchexec.txt -ini=..\\Benchmark\\Stuff\\MaxDetail.ini -userini=..\\Benchmark\\Stuff\\MaxDetailUser.ini -nosound

Remember to do this to all of the .bat files in that directory before running Benchmark.exe.

The 800MHz FSB brings the Pentium 4 directly upon the heels of AMD's Athlon XP 3000+.

    Umm...right whatever, at least we can spend $2000 and get a powerful monster where as you get a let me see...133Mhz G3?! (OK, that's pushing it but you get the idea.) Besides, I might get a 3.0C Pentium-IV! BUAHAHHAH! Reply

    Umm, make that the APPLE Powermac G5, and it's not 800MHz, it's 1GHz!

    You pee cee people crack me up. Enjoy your little kids toys!
