Unreal Tournament Benchmarks


New to our suite of benchmarks is Unreal Tournament. While most of my first person shooter gaming experience has been with Quake, I found Unreal Tournament to be a graphically appealing game and pretty damn fun to play. Unfortunately, I don't have the experience of playing Unreal Tournament on older graphics cards, but I've learned that the Direct 3D version performs reasonably well on the TNT and TNT2.

The demo used to benchmark Unreal Tournament was UTbench which is close to a worst case scenario to measure on-line gaming performance. Sound was disabled by adding the -nosound parameter to the executable and the default graphics settings recommended for my system were used which include high quality textures and skins.

While their is a slight difference in performance between the GeForce2 GTS and GeForce 256 DDR with UTbench, I found that the variances between the lowest and highest frame rates to be less on the GeForce2 GTS. After some hands-on testing, performance between the two cards at 1024x768 in 32-bit color was similar. After moving up to 1280x960 in 32-bit color, I did notice a slight degradation in performance on the GeForce2 GTS, but game play was more than adequate.
