Default Benching Custom UT2K3 Demo

I created my own demo in UT2003 and am getting odd results when I benchmark it. Here are the details:

Graphics card: PowerColor ATI 9800Pro 128MB @ factory default clocks

System specs:
  • AMD Athlon XP 1700+ @ 1.825GHz
  • EPoX 8K3A+ motherboard
  • Samsung PC2700 DDR SDRAM (1) 512MB DIMM
  • VIA Hyperion 4in1 v4.49 drivers
  • 32-Bit Color / Onboard Sound / Vsync Disabled
  • Windows XP Professional w/ Service Pack 1 / DirectX 9b

Benchmark specs:
  • Created demo from console with "demorec mydemo.dem"
  • Map used is DM-Tokara Forest
  • Number of players: 16 (15 bots plus myself)
  • Duration: 5 minutes

For benchmarking I use FRAPS 2.0. I start UT2003, enter "demoplay mydemo.dem" and start logging FRAPS once playback begins.

Here are the results from FRAPS (I've noted the resolution and AA/AF settings for each):

2003-08-23 14:04:54 - UT2003 1600x1200 0AA0AF
Frames: 6450 - Time: 296947ms - Avg: 21.721 - Min: 17 - Max: 27

Frames: 6441 - Time: 296627ms - Avg: 21.714 - Min: 17 - Max: 27

2003-08-23 22:24:24 - UT2003 1024x768 0AA0AF
Frames: 6453 - Time: 297057ms - Avg: 21.723 - Min: 17 - Max: 28


These results can't be right. Any ideas?

Thanks!
