This isn't a death, but it'll knock yo socks off. This is what really really makes me want a GeForce FX.... I hope that it can run this at well over 60fps so that I can play like it (btw, original resolution was 1600x1200 with 4xS AA and 8x Aniso):



Look at that detail, WOW!

For anybody that is looking at that saying, that game can't be playable, well here's a more acceptable framerate with some of the stuff turned off. Still great looking though:



I would think that some of the scenes like this would be way easy for the GeForce4 to handle. I mean, Quake3 isn't all that much more complicated than this and yet it gets fps up above 300. Do you guys think that there are maybe some programming issues with UT?

quake 3 doesn't compare to the complexity of ut2k3.

1024x768, No AA (even though I play with Quincunx on most of the time), No Aniso, Normal Textures, characters, highest world detail, highest physics, character shadows and projectors off, and everything else on. I have found that I can turn world detail to normal and play with Quincunx and still get perfect framerate, so I switch between highest detail and quincunx regularly.
