DX7 Performance - UnrealTournament

UnrealTournament is far from the best game to showcase the GeForce3's capabilities. As you can tell, at 640 x 480 there are driver and other issues that are keeping it even below the levels of its GeForce2 siblings.

UnrealTournament has never particularly stressed any of the video cards we've reviewed, mainly because the engine has featured limitations that prevented a great deal of variation in performance among like cards. Once again, the GeForce3's power isn't being used for much here, you don't even need an Ultra for high performance UnrealTournament.

Even at 1600 x 1200, the GeForce3 isn't necessary and continues to come out below the GeForce2 Ultra. This is the type of situation that NVIDIA wants to see the least, a present day game that not only doesn's stress the GeForce3 but one that runs just fine with a number of cheaper video cards.
