Gaming Performance - Unreal Tournament 2003

We introduced the latest Unreal Tournament 2003 benchmark in our GPU Shootout article a few weeks back and we're continuing to use it as an example of a next-generation game test.

We benchmarked only under one level - DM-Asbestos (a very CPU bound benchmark) as our other UT2003 benchmark did not vary with CPU speed on any of the 2GHz+ CPUs (DM-Antalus is GPU limited in most situations unless you have a Radeon 9700 Pro at your disposal).

3D games are known bandwidth hogs and thus we can see that the new 400MHz parts have a difficult time keeping up with their 533MHz counterparts. As expected, the new 2.80GHz Pentium 4 takes the crown under Unreal Tournament 2003.
